Builder’s Bargains Rules

Builder’s Bargains Rules
Merchants are responsible for understanding and following the rules.  There will be immediate consequences for violating the rules.  Among these are suspension from the sale, suspension of notice privileges, and/or a ban from all participation in the group. Certain infractions will also lead to losing your notice privileges in the Merchant Resource Central group. Effective June 17, 2014: You must be a renter at the Creators Market to participate in the Builder’s Bargains sale.
 
  •  No drama, verbal abuse, hate-related content, hate-related language, or copyright violations of any kind will be tolerated.
  •  Merchants must keep a current Builder’s Bargain group joiner rezzed in their stores at all times.
  •  Merchants may only advertise their own original products, and must never misrepresent them. Permissions must be clearly stated on your product ads. Product ads must NOT show plywood or untextured, tinted prims.  (AO textures are fine.) No exceptions.
  • You must have at least one new item each time you participate. The new item(s) must be clearly indicated on your submissions notecard, and you may submit a total of 4 items per round.
  • Use the notecard contained in the “Builder’s Bargains Merchant Kit – February 14″.
  • No repeats of previously submitted products. 
  • Products submitted must be priced at least 50% off.  The sale price must be exclusive to Builder’s Bargains for the duration of the round.
  • Submissions are due on Mondays at 5pm SLT.  (And you must be set up by Wednesday at 5pm SLT). Submit your notecard to the red mail box in the Builder’s Bargains Office.
  • You must share the list with your in-world store group, and subscriber group, no later than Saturday at 11 am SLT.

Builder’s Bargains Notice Group Rules

Notice privileges are for actively participating merchants in the Creators Market and in Builder’s Bargains.  To be considered active, you must submit for the sale at least once each month.

  • All notices must be for full perm products or creators resources, created by you.
  • You may send up to two notices per calendar week.  (Calendar week is Sunday through Saturday.)
  • Notices must be for your products and must have a notecard, created by you, attached.  Notecards must include the following:
    1. Product ad(s)
    2. Landmark to your store (and/or your Marketplace URL)
    3. Price of items being advertised.
  • Directly attaching a landmark, photo or object to a notice is forbidden. These must go onto a notecard.
  • You may embed notecards and/or landmarks for sales, hunts and fairs you are participating in onto your product notecard.   You may not send sale lists, hunt lists, or fair information directly.

These rules are non-negotiable and subject to change. Merchants are responsible for knowing them and following them.  Those who don’t will lose their privileges. (This isn’t baseball or grade school, its not a 3 strikes and you’re out situation.)

Before you go any further, please make sure you have read all of the rules .

Disclaimer:  we are under no obligation what so ever to confer notice privileges or to have you in the sale.  There is no democratic process in Second Life, and group owners can govern and moderate their groups as they see fit within the LL ToS and Community Standards.  Understand we take resource creation very seriously.  Your shop will be reviewed by two or more members.  We will assess your shop for originality of content, quality, standard business transparency, and ease of navigation.  Your application may be denied without explanation.  Badgering of group owners, moderators, staff, and other group members or store checkers will not be tolerated.

If you agree with all of the statements and disclaimers above, IM Kat Alderson in-world, saying that you have read these rules, understand them, and will abide by them.  Please include your marketplace URL and your main store SLURL in the IM.  No notecards, and no landmarks, please.  Thank you.
