Important Dates & Info

- Theme: Valentine, Love, Romantic….or even Anti-Valentine! ( TLDR: make whatever you like)
- Venue: Your mainstore! \o/
- Last day to apply: Jan 3rd, 2017 (extended from 28th Dec to account for the holidays ♥)
- Ad pics request: Feb 6th-Feb 10th, 2017
- You MUST setup and be ready for our walkthrough by: Feb 10th, 2017, 6pm SLT.
Important note about being late:
- We do not accept lateness and we are serious. No negotiations, no extensions.
- Just speak to past Hocus Pocus and XOXO participants who were late and wasn’t included in the guide – we really don’t kid around with due date and time.
- You have a RL, we organizers do too.
- 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 Feb 10th, 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 whatever reason.
- 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!
- Just because a texture is on Google Images doesn’t mean it’s free to use.
- Check license.
- Application fee is 350L — pay only after you receive your confirmation.
- XOXO item must be priced at 50L throughout the duration of the event. No more, no less.
- The win probability must be set at 20% and above, no less.
- New or recoloured only — please do not set an existing item as your XOXO items.
- Only ONE item per store. It can be a new single item, or one item priced at 50L from a new set of releases. Take advantage of this event to make a mainstore release. 🙂
- 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.
- Make sure the vendor 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 25th (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.
