TREASURE HUNTS:

BRINK OF KINK HUNT – VENDOR APPLICATION
DMom2K Darwin
Hunt: April 1 to April 14
Application due: March 5 to Wildroses Pevensey
Only 50 shops accepted for this hunt.

Are you on the Brink of Kink? This hunt may be for you. Sponsored by The Brink of Kink, we want to see what other freaky stores there are out there in SL. Here is a chance to show off your “Wild” side.

Things to know before you even consider applying.

****DO NOT BOTHER APPLYING IF THE LOCATION YOU ARE GIVING ME IS NOT GOOD FOR TWO MONTHS, I WILL NOT TRACK YOU DOWN, IF I TP THERE AND YOUR GONE, YOUR OUT, I AM NOT SPENDING ALL OF MY TIME CHANGING LAND MARKS FOR YOU, THIS IS FOR ESTABLISHED SHOPS*********

A) your gift must be Kinky or on the Brink and made by you.
B) YOU as the vendor WILL have responsibilities and you MUST be able to follow simple directions.
C) this is a very limited Hunt, we will only be accepting 50 Shops Max. All shops will need to be actual stores, sorry no mall locations. the landing point MUST be at your shop entrance.
D) the FINAL hunt item will contain, your gift, a LM AND HINT for the next shop. you will NEED to be on the ball and you MUST hand your hints to me ASAP, if you do not do so, then you will forfiet your spot. i am NOT going to chase people around. Again if you are confused, refer to letter B.
E) this is an ADULT hunt. All stores WILL be checked and if we dont feel you fit in we are sorry. Our hunt our rules.
F) your gift MUST be done BEFORE the hunt starts, if i hear of/see ANYONE that does not have their gift ready on start date (and yes i have seen it) too bad so sad. when you do that it AFFECTS everyone in the hunt. you are turning in your application, it means you aknowledge that you are responsible and going to make a gift, DO IT!
G) Because of the limited number of shops available, you may only have ONE shop PER PERSON.

now for other important things!

The hunt will run for 2 weeks. From April 1st (yes april fools day) to April 14th

Deadlines that YOU are responsible for.
Application Deadline no later than March 5th
Hints to me. No Later than March 10th (a hunt item sample will be sent out when you are accepted along with a poster to display)

I will be sending out more information when/if you are accepted to the hunt.
These rules might sound a bit harsh, but we are business people.  We need to respect each others time and dedication to making our businesses a success.  A hunt is a lot of work for both vendor and organizer, therefore these rules are in place to make sure that the hunt works for both and is successful for all participants.  I have seen too many hunts success be destroyed by those who do not take this seriously.
By applying, you are agreeing to these rules, and to meet the deadlines.

NATURE’S HUNT
DMom2K Darwin
March 3 to April 3
 http://slurl.com/secondlife/Fire/198/3/23

From the notecard:

Nature’s Hunt 2010
After the cold winter when spring arrives everyone gets back that smile and that tingly feeling in our belly. This hunt is inspired on all that spring means to Nature, when everything starts blooming again.  There have been a wide variety of gridwide hunts in so many themes, but this hunt is the first in SL with the theme: Nature.
Yes this spring we will honor Nature by having a Nature’s Hunt based on everything that is natural or anything that is Nature related.  A great hunt where you get to see all the sims that have great Nature sites, items and shops! With this hunt we want to show you that  SL is a place where exploring never stops. The hunt will be taking place from March 3rd- April 3rd 2010.

Hunters, join the Nature’s Hunt Hunters Group and get the latest updates and hints in this unique hunt.  It is free to join and you can use the group chat to get help during the hunt.  If you cant join the group you can still do the hunt 🙂  The group inviter will send you an automated group invite, it can take up a minute before adding you. Find all the daffodils and collect your amazing gifts from our very talented and amazing creators here,  make sure you get them all! Explore the participating sims and let yourself be swept of your feet by all the beauty Nature brings.

Some important rules for this hunt:
1.  This is meant to be fun and a hunt, so please no yelling out locations of hunt items in local.  Stick to your IM’s for helping out your friends or fellow hunters.
2.  We have wonderful creators who have spent alot of time on these gifts for you, so please be respectful and do NOT bother them on where the item is or hassle them in any way. Find help in group chat or check out the hintlist.
3.  In group chat, do not blurt out where things are located.  Helping each other is some of the fun of these hunts, so remember to give out hints only in chat.
4.  Do not give out cheat sheets.  Creators will change the location of the hunt items when they learn of them and for some creators, they do enjoy changing the locations anyways, so the cheat sheets do tend to be useless.
5.  Remember to always give yourself more than enough time to rezz.  Some places can take up to a few minutes before you can see clearly enough to really look for the item.
6.  When hunting, please be respectful to each other, we want everyone to enjoy themselves on this hunt. 
7.  Do not just walk into a shop, glance and then ask for help immediately, this is a hunt so please put in an effort to find the object.
8.  This is the official hunt blog where pictures and valid hints will be posted: http://www.firebeach.org/index.php/blogs/blogsjes

***IMPORTANT INFORMATION – PLEASE NOTE:

Due to the copybot source code release some sims have a policy on thrid party viewers, such as GreenLife (Emerald).
Any viewer that can be used for illegal activities wont be allowed by several sims, like the unauthorized duplication of content.
If you are using a viewer that does, or that acts like one of those viewers according to the scanners, you will be banned. Refrain from using “active cryolife scanning” in your GreenLife (Emerald) viewer, because when you do, your viewer will be detected as Cryo Life, and you will be banned.
How to turn that option off:

Emerald--option-cryo-off

Happy hunting!!!

THERE *IS* INNOVATION IN WEB-BASED VIRTUAL WORLDS – JUST MORE SOCIAL, THAN TECHNICAL
James Wagner Au – New World Notes

Included is a link to an article by Daniel Terdiman on CNet News – Geek Gestalt  “Where virtual worlds once ruled, FarmVille dominates” Daniel Terdiman writes, “The social networks have opened up some really rewarding social experiences to a lot of new people and sparked a new acceptance of game dynamics,” said community and social media consultant Ron Meiners. “[Virtual] world designers are way behind the social-network sites in providing easy, connective, fun technologies.”

James Wagner Au says, “Of course Dan’s right that Second Life has the lead on most technological and governance topics. But I think this understates the social innovation going on in casual web worlds. You will often see in them the kind of emergent behavior we admire in Second Life — namely, user-generated content, and deep engagement within the virtual community, and the real world.”

Both article are an interesting look at social networking and where it may be heading.
