Setup

During setup the only people allowed to enter the sim are designers. If any designers need their manager to help please tell us their name and we will add them to access the sim. Bloggers will start entering on the 7th until opening of the event so it's best to get all of your items finished so they can start working with promoting. For setting up your items in the blogger room scroll to the bottom of the page for more information.

*NEW Summer 2017*

We wanted to make this easier for the designers and not feel any stress with picking a spot or worrying about not being able to get to the sim on the first day. Starting the Summer of 2017, we have placed out Designer and Sponsor labels that contain each stores name. It designates where each will set up their creations. It was done in a clockwise alphabetical order, there is no influence on where the designers are placed. The first level, closest to the landing spot, is Sponsors and the next levels are for the designers. 

During setup you are welcome to decorate your booth to give it more life, this is optional. If you do decide to decorate, please remove all scripts and turn them to phantom.

Prim Limits:

  • Sponsors: 70 Prims
  • Designers: 40 Prims

The sim will open for SETUP on September 30th @ 11:59 PM (23:59) aka Midnight Ending on October 7th @ 1:00 AM (01:00).

Once the allowed set up time is passed we will start to clean up any empty booths. We need to start asap so we can get our sim designer to fill in the holes where booths were once standing. Then comes the video of the event that is made before it opens as one of our promos. 


Demo Area

Designers, if you need to set out any of your items that are too large for your booth we have an area in the sky where you can display them at full size. Please send an IM to Cremepan Resident and she will set out the Teleports.


Ads

You can send your vendor ads to our email: theseasonsstorysl@gmail.com Or you can drop them into this Google Drive folder: The Seasons Story - Autumn 2017 If you decide to drop your files off please make sure to add it to the correct folder: Sponsors or Designers.

  • Max dimensions: 2048 pixels
    • Please do not send a 6000 pixel image
  • The catalog is setup in 1 x 1 square format, when you click on the image it will enlarge.
  • Ads should be sent in either as a PNG or JPEG, no BMP files.
  • Label your ad with the name you want displayed in the catalog.

You are welcome to add your images to our Flickr group if you haven't joined please do so :D It will reopen on the 1st of July and close at the end of the event.

If there are any changes or updates to the ads please send ASAP so we can get the proper image you want up. It would be best to get them in by the 7th so we may post them to the site and start promoting. Reminders will be sent out through the in-world group notices, we will not hunt or track down creators who have not sent in their ads.


Blogger Room

If you wish to place out your item for our selected bloggers please do it before the ending of setup. Once the sim opens it will be difficult for our bloggers to enter the sim to retrieve the items to work with and for yourself to place them out.

Do NOT place a NC in the blogger box informing the bloggers to contact you. By using the blogger room you must place your items into the box. We will be checking each blogger box to make sure.

The only designers allowed to get other designers work are those who participate in placing out their own items in the blogger room. If you have a design partner please let us know when you add your item to the room so we may add their name to the blogger access list. 


Thank you

We thank you so much for joining us and making our event continue to stay strong. The event will officially open to the public on the 10th of October and close on the 31st. Work hard and we wish you the best!
