The main aim for XOXO event is to pull traffic into your mainstore – show mainstore shopping some loving while providing fun and value to customers.
How it works: Customers TP into your store and find the Heart Box (hunt object) with your item in it. They say ‘xoxo’ in local chat and they will either
- Win the item for free (15% chance to win) or
- Not win the item, and have to wait another 24 hours before they can try again.
- If they prefer not to wait, they can buy it outright from your vendor for 50L.

ABSOLUTELY important note about being late:
- We do not accept lateness and we are serious. No extensions, no negotiations.
- If you’ve been with us for past Hocus Pocus and XOXO events, you know we have zero tolerance with lateness.
- Your setup must be finished by Feb 8th, 6pm SLT. This gives us time to check your setup and remedy any errors.
- We take no pleasure in saying “No, we cannot include you”. So please don’t be late.
- There are no refunds so please make sure you CAN commit to the dates.
- The date is not a mystery to you. Please prepare for emergencies.
- If you are not setup by the time we do our walkthrough on 6pm on Feb 8th, your store will not be included in the HUD or gallery.
- We understand that things happens and we will accept all and every excuse. However, if you are late, you are late and this rule is non-negotiable for any and all reasons whatsoever.
About the Theme
- Theme is guide only. Basically, make whatever you want!
- We do suggest Valentine or Anti-Valentine items due to the time period. However, again, feel free to make whatever you want. You want Christmas in February? Go for it!
- No copyright or IP infringing materials — either in your store or with your XOXO item. You’re not new to business in SL, so this should be common knowledge!
- XOXO item must be priced at 50L throughout the duration of the event. No more, no less.
- The win probability must be set at 15% and above, no less.
- New or recoloured only — please do not set an existing item as your XOXO items.
- Only ONE item/package per store. It can be a new single item, or one item priced at 50L from a new set of releases. You can take advantage of this event to make a set of mainstore release where one set is for XOXO. 🙂
- The item sold MUST be the same item as the prize. The idea is to give customers a chance to get it for free or for 50L.
- It will be helpful if the heart box is in clear view to your customers or easily found. It’s not really a hunt, so let’s not torture them. 😀
- Feel free to do whatever you wish with your item after Feb 18th (put it for full price, set it as group gift etc, retire it), but not before.
- If you plan on retiring your item, please let us know so that we can include that in the advertising.
A note to template users:
Please make sure your template provider(s) allow for the item to be given away as freebies or sold for under 50L.
- Make sure to read their TOS.
- If you need a Release/Info Letter from us to send to the Full-Perm Meshmaker, please let us know.
- However, we cannot guarantee that they will agree to it.
