I've Been Sick - Need the hud?

Yes - The bonus area is still up. It will be up for 2 more weeks as promised.

No - Not everyone has gotten the hud that gave me a note card. Because I've been in very bad shape the last few days. The newest doctor I have found out two things that are causing the problems. Now to try to fix it. And hope it makes my life a little better.

Maybe - I HOPE to get on tomorrow and give out the hud to those that did NOT get it. If you have NOT gotten it, but you gave me a note card, I will post here when I've gone through all the ones I can find. Then if you still haven't, just re-send and I will get it to you. Or just resend now to be on the safe side.

I know not many will watch this now, but those waiting on the hud, I hope you see this. I can't get into SL tonight. But hope to in the morning.

Happy Hunting!

I'm Not Ignoring Your Notes

I'm sorry, I've been laid up for a few days. In fact, since I posted the Hunt Is Over post. I won't get into boring details, but I've got 2 specialists I see tomorrow, and then should be on tomorrow night.

I've got a TON of note cards, and will read and reply soon. Sorry for the delay, but my pain got in the way.

The hunt is OVER!


If you got all of them but the few that have been having problems, send me a note card titled: SFH - {Your Name} - I tried to finish

Example: SFH - Tiea Aeon - I tried to finish


Simple, the BONUS Area will be OPEN for at LEAST 2 more weeks so that those that tried to finish, and those that had to go on business trips before the Bonus Area got put out, get a chance at the over 30 gifts that some great shop owners put out!

I was unable to get on yesterday due to personal reasons, and I have to run now too, but wanted to get this out so that those keeping an eye on the blog know what to do next.

What IS next? Well... the next hunt isn't till Jan. I'll put a link here when I get that site up... That is, if I go ahead with the promised Winter hunt... we will see... ;)

Known Missing Shops

These are the KNOWN shops that have pulled out or are missing. If you need them, they are set up here and have a special gift from AmberMyst Botanical Designs. Just look at the ones on the wall of the shop. Right now there are 4 in a row. (Just added 13 & 68 to this list, so will add them to the wall as soon as I can)

#13 - Divine Shapes - GONE no word why or what wis going on.
#20 - Bootiful Creations - Backed out, due to things breaking too much
#53 -DivaLicious - Backed out, due to personal reasons
#55 -Bleeding Rose Designs - MISSING
#60 -Xeena's Garden Centre - Backed out, can't handle the notecards
#68 -Can't find it, gonna set up temp tomorrow if no contact by then.

As most know, today was my Sabbath, so I didn't have as much time inworld as I hoped. However, I did get a note card from someone with a few more MIA ones. I have a friend who will go to EVERY ONE in the morning and we will report here the ones missing.

For those that don't know, DragonLady, Enzo's, Jasmine's, Crimson, all have more then one umbrella. So if you get sent there again, that's because there is another one there.

If you have shop issues, send me a note card. I'm doing what I can.

Goodnight and Happy Hunting

Hmmm.. Guess My Few Minutes Took Longer..

Why? Because no sooner did I get in-world and looking at my note cards that I started to regret my past post. In it I was being honest, I let you all know why I did what I did, why I said what I said. It was in no way my fault that Jodie decided to tell me she's put it back out RIGHT THEN, then not do it. Yes, I know there is a real life out there. I know that real life can take over second life even when we don't want it to. But it is rude and uncalled for to tell someone you are going to do something "now," when in all honesty you mean "when I can get to it". Not to mention an out and out lie.

If you DO tell someone you are going to do something right now, only you meant "later", and God forbid, something happens and you can't get online to do it, don't be pissed if the someone you made the promise to gets upset. You said "now", it wasn't done "now", nor meant to be done "now", so what are they to think?

No matter what was said, the core of this is not that she promised me then didn't do it, it is that when I found out what was going on, I honestly, and from the bottom of my heart, said I was sorry for the misunderstanding. But it was a useless appology, one that I didn't know at the time I wrote it would never be read by her. Because when I got in-world, I found out she'd already done quite a few things, all from things she had "heard" was on the blog. Even if she'd waited to get a clarification of what was going on, she'd not have read the blog, she was all going on what someone else had read and told her.

Her actions shocked me.

First she sicked a "friend" on me, sending me a VERY nasty, untrue note that had this person going off of what 'someone said they read' on this blog.

Then she sent me a note that was also very nasty and, like her friend said, "unprofessional".

Now, normally I do not air my dirty laundry for all the public to see. And even though these letters that were sent were very VERY uncalled for and VERY mean and rude and basically just vile filth meant to try to hurt me in some way, I won't post them here.

But I will post that she made me instantly regret my other post. And I will post her threat.

Yes, it would seem that Jodie, the owner of DivaLicous, has threatened me personally. Of course she didn't say WHAT she was going to do. But she did threaten me that this was far from over, when it basically was over the instant she pulled out of the hunt.

WHY she is threatening me is as stupid as the threat.

It's all over a post that I made not too long ago. In that post I stated: #54 - DivaLicious PROMISED me a few days ago that she would put the gift back out. It still is not out. I can't force someone to do it. But I will be sure not to let them into another hunt if they can't keep up with one because they are listed with 8.

For those unsure why she took offence to this, I'll break it into the 3 parts of the post.

The first part said that she had promised to do something, but she hadn't.

The second part said that I can't force people to do it, it meaning put things out. I made that statement because by the time I posted this I'd gotten a TON of note cards complaining about it not being there.

The third part said that I would be sure to not let anyone into another hunt that can't keep up with my hunt because they are listed with 8 other hunts.

No where in that sentence do I say I won't let HER into another hunt. Or do I say that no one ELSE should let HER into their hunt. It is a blank statement of how I will be more careful in the future to make sure that ANYONE unable to keep up with my hunt, will not be allowed in another of my hunts. You have to read the whole paragragh, the part where I say "I can't force SOMEONE" then say "I won't let THEM", not pick and choose the sentances you want to read. And i
t seems that people were reading it and incerting her name.

If her actions make them think I meant her, not my fault.

Though I won't lie, I was thinking of her when I wrote it, her and anyone like her who kept ignoring messages and notices and my hard work and the hard work of the helpers. All of which did this for no pay.

I had a helper trying to reach her all the time. They left messages REPEATEDLY. I left messages. We had to message her repeatedly over several days, before I finally got the reply that she was so bogged down because she was in 8 hunts at the time that she didn't even notice that the hunt wasn't over and that she'd put it all out right now.

From that statement I assumed she meant NOW, as in as soon as she dropped the notecard into my inventory that she'd go do it. This was 3 days after she took them udown So when a week went by with no action at all, I had no choice but to assume she wasn't going to fix it.

Out of all this, out of all that happened, the one thing that I do NOT understand is how she could look at the poster with HUGE red words saying "EXTENDED till Sep. 14th" and delete it. Not to mention it was NEVER the 1st when it ended.

Honestly, I wouldn't even be writing this entry if she hadn't threatened me. I'd have said my appology, and gotten on with my life. But I worked my ass off for this hunt, I went without sleep, I woke up with headaches, I didn't get MY store in order or get anything new done in my sim because I was always trying to make this hunt the best it could be.

So many times I just wanted to toss in the towel and just walk away. "It's only a hunt", people would tell me. "Your health means more," or "It doesn't matter if they have to wait to get #whatever fixed," were other statements I got. From day one you all have seen the problems I've had, I haven't sugar coated it. And no matter the problem, I worked through it. I kept working at it till it worked or I dropped. Not to be praised, not for any "thank you", and no, not for the entrance fee, which went to pay the scripter, not me. No, I did it because I wanted people to enjoy it. I wanted to have a hunt that people would WANT to finish. One that when they got to the end they were like "WOW! That was fun!"

I've gotten a few of those comments I've gotten a few note cards thanking me and the crew. But more then that I've gotten HUGE headaches because some of the shop owners refused to read the notices and refused to answer the IMs or the note cards and because the scripter didn't get the scripts done in time, and then they kept breaking, and never got the final ones done (a friend fixed those for me, thank God!), and then as the whole thing was going to end... just when I thought smooth sailing, the bonus area was open, everything iwasworking... my domain suddenly had problems and we had even more scripting issues.

I've laid my soul out in this blog, not for pitty or for applause. I've done it so that you know the truth behind what happened, and what might happen. Because of her threat, I have a sinking feeling that sooner or later, things will be said. People like that, that threaten like that, always start something. And I won't have lies coming out first, so that people see that then look to me to defend myself. I'll defend myself now, before any of her lies or hate gets around. Because I am a good person and I don't deserve to be lied about.

So, to those people that messaged me about what you "heard" I wrote about.. maybe this time you will read it yourself before you start spouting out your bile at me.

And for Jodie, as you can see, I don't take threats lightly. I have done nothing wrong. And if YOU would read the blog like you agreed to when you applied for the hunt, maybe then you would see that what you think was said and what WAS said are two different things.
But you may never even read this, because it seems that you don't remember the application. Or did you not read the application either? It said clearly to keep an eye on the blog for important information, something you haven't been doing or you'd have known that the hunt didn't end the first... but then reading the sign you deleted would have told you that too.

To the rest of you.... forgive me if I sound cold or hard or pissed off or mad or just plain out and out like a mean person. I'm sitting here in PAIN right now because I wasn't going to let a threat go unanswered, and the pain tends to make me short sometimes. I just couldn't get to sleep knowing that someone out there was about ready to do something or say something bad about me when I'd done nothing wrong.

Good night..... I'll update the broken ones and stuff tomorrow night, or afternoon, sometime after church. If I don't get sleep now I'll never make it to church and right now I really REALLY need to feel loved, and that is one place I always feel loved. It doesn't matter if I do mess up, as long as I say I'm sorry, and I try to do better next time, I'm forgiven and I'm loved. It's what we all need from time to time. There is just too much hate in this world. Too many people out to make our lives miserable and rotten, make us feel like we don't matter, that what we do for others goes un-noticed, or that we just don't count.

We all count. We all matter. Even those threatening us or trying to make our lives a living hell. Even they count. No matter how vile they are. We all can fall. It's what we do when we fall that will show who we are, will mold who we become.... And who we look to.... Good night, Sweet Dreams...

And Now For Something Else...

I am lucky that I have some really great friends who offered to help in the hunt. I took a few minutes tonight to look at my e-mails, to see if there was something important in the IMs I got today while I was away and saw a few new things.

One was the below item.

Two was the fact that Yasmine has been going around to all the shops I've noted and checking to see which ones are working and which ones aren't. She also checked several others.
Here is her report:
number 63 - roaddogg's racing shop and paint .... found the umbrella ... seems to be working fine
number 59 .... I found the umbrella ... seems to be working fine

I also got a message from one of the hunters who was having issues with a lot of the shops. She let me know that most are working now. So the owners must have re-set them. I've asked them all to check them once a day to make sure that they aren't "busy" and if they are, to re-set the scripts.

So, remember, if you get a busy signal, leave the owner a message and I'm sure they will re-set them as soon as they can.

One last sad note. I got several messages from #20 -Bootiful Creations this morning. The first said that she confused the SFH hunt with another hunt. She also said she was really sorry, she hoped it could get worked out. Then I got another message saying she'd read the notices in the group and she'd stay out of the hunt. Then a third saying she'd read the blog and that she hadn't said what I put, that I was to delete it. To be totally honest, I'm totally confused about all the messages. I tried last night to work it out with her and it wasn't until she logged out without answering my last IM asking what exactly she meant, that I needed to know if she was pulling out or not, that I went to her shop to find see if I could find the umbrella. Like she said, she'd put the poster in the shop, but I couldn't find the umbrella. I happen to have this little wand that will help me find them, it was made by the scripter who did the scripts, it seeks those scripts out, and it could only find the umbrella next door, not one in her shop. So all I could assume was that she had pulled out, like she told me she was going to do. Well now after all these messages, I went there and even the poster is gone. I have NO IDEA what is going on. I'm sorry, I'm totally lost. I am leaving another note card for her in hopes of getting this fixed one way or the other. She is more then welcome to stay in the hunt if she wishes. I only said she was "out" because SHE said she was pulling out. That she was tired of things being broken. If she wants back in, I will post it here. If she doesn't, I will post here a place where you can go to touch an umbrella that will at least register the shop.

So... I think I better go in-world for a couple minutes, but then I HAVE to head to bed, I'm in a lot of pain.

I'll Admit When I'm Wrong...

I will readily admit when I am wrong. I've been in a lot of pain lately, as well as under a lot of stress with the hunt suddenly having problems a few days before the end. So when the lady who owns #53 DivaLicious replied to the note card I sent her about her pulling the umbrella 2 weeks before the hunt was to end, with a note card of her own saying she was sorry, and that she'd put it back right away, I assumed that she meant right then. So when it never got out, I had no idea what to think, and may have put my frustration of it out in the blog.

It has come to my attention tonight that she's been in the hosptial since the day she sent me that reply. I'm guessing as soon as she dropped it into my inventory, something must have happened to take her instantly away from the computer and right into the hospital, but I don't know the details nor would I post them here if I did, as that's her personal stuff.

However, I did want to make sure that it was not my intention to falsely paint her in a bad light. I was only going on what I'd been given, what I knew about, and that the note card she gave me said that she was going to do it right then. Though with all my known medical problems, I could easily see sending something to someone in-world, having to suddenly get up and go to the hospital without so much as a word to anyone in-world. I've had those types of days, when SL crashed while I was doing something, and was in so much pain that I just couldn't see going back in-world until I could get my pain meds to work.

So, to the person who IM'd me (I got it via e-mail as I've been out all day due to the medical tests last night), and the lady herself, I'm sorry if my words hurt anyones feelings or caused any undo stress. There was a reason she didn't follow through with what she said she'd do, a very very good reason. I will keep her in my prayers for a speedy recovery.

I've been in world now for over 7 hours. I had to be there to get my tier paid, and I won't go into it, but since sales were next to non existent this month, no time to make new stock till recently, I had to try to get the funds from my bank card... Long story short, I was on the phone with Linden Labs forEVER yesterday and today trying to get my info to be accepted and in the end finally got enough Lindens to cover it. That took 3 hours today, and the rest of the time I've spent dealing with the hunt. And the problems.

Seems we have a shop that has yet to put their gift back out. #53 Divalious is STILL not out. They took it back on the 1st, and it was NEVER the 1st, then when I talked to them they promised on the 3rd to put it back. It's still gone. So I will figure something out.

Now we all know the problems the domain has had. In fact, I've had nothing but one problem after another. But I've been here, as much as physically possible, and beyond, trying to get solutions to those problems. Today a shop pulled out because they didn't like how things kept breaking. #20 -Bootiful Creations gave me a message that they were putting it inside, they were tired of the IM being capped, and tired of things breaking.

As you also know, I have had NO control over the breaks this last week. Something happened on my domain, they went down, or did an upgrade or SOMETHING, I spent HOURS with that tech support and still I was the one that fixed it by re-setting all the scripts on the web site.

Now for some reason many of them keep going to BUSY again. When this was fixed at the begining of the hunt, the scripter fixed something in the script and everything worked. However, Bizet has flown the coup. She is no more. I was able to get a couple short replies from her, but she's done as far as she's concerned with the scripts. So I'm on my own. Luckily Cammi fixed the bonus hud, or that would have been a mess!

.... Now I'm out of Second Life, but I'll be back tonight MAYBE. I have to go to a sleep study tonight. I have to leave EARLY because it's an hour drive. I WILL get to the note cards, I promise. It came down to those talking to me while I was online got handeled. And the note cards didn't get touched, because after dealing with LL, then some shop owners, I had some hunters IMing me....

The ones that are broken, I will figure something out... just give me tonight to find something out. Thanks.

Wednesday, September 9, 2009


Attached is the new LM and Slurl of NO. 35 - Magia

You Got A What????

"I'm trying to get a gift, and I keep getting a busy signal. What do I do?"

I have gotten a LOT of note cards like this today. In fact a TON of them.

First off, if a place is "BUSY". Send the owner a note card, before you contact me, because the owner is the one that must re-set the script. Then if you can't get them within a day or so, let me know.

There are still some missing or broken. People are worried about not getting the bonus gifts. The bonus gifts will be out LONGER then the hunt. So if you get to the end, and have only broken ones left, I will make sure that you get the bonus gifts. It's not your fault, you went there, they just weren't working.

I have no clue why they are not working right now. But I can tell you that leaving me a note card sometimes will take longer, because then I have to leave a note with the owner and in the mean time you might have caught them online. ;) So try them first.

Here is the current list:
#4, I will put out in the morning.
#50, I sent a note card to, they don't even have the right poster
#53 promised to put it back out on the 3rd... nothing yet.
#55 NO idea what's up there, note card to owner, nothing yet.
#59 - I sent a note card
#60 - Can't find, sent note card
#63 - sent a note card.
#64 is working for me.
#68 sent a note card

Now, I got two other messages, but as it was, it took me almost 3 hours to get most the note cards answered and the locations checked and note cards to the owners of the shops. So there are still two more that have NOT be answered.

In theirs, these also were broken (but remember, I have not checked these are contacted the owner... if they are working now, great, if not, be aware these may still not be working):

9 busy (told owner)
17 busy
28 busy
35 tp is MIA
39 busy
44 busy
48 failed treasure delevery
66 failed treasure delevery

# 12 Trixxy's shop - cant enter its adult site (This must be new and I will talk to owner as soon as I can)
# 35 Magia - cant find the shop (I tried this tonight and couldn't get there either, will try owner in morning)

Hope that all this helps you. I will try to get the rest fixed when I can.

If you have everything BUT the broken or missing shops, let me know. Send me a note card and I'll just mark them in the web site. Then you can get the bonus gifts.

Till then... Happy Hunting..... Oh boy! Glad my doc can't see the time! Started this post way back when I was working on the issues, and it's over 2 hours later. I should have been asleep by 1am, I've got another sleep study. It's 2:45 now! Oh no! No telling my docs! ;)

When It Rains... It Pours!

I had on the sidebar that #24 was down. OOPS! Sorry! It was #4 (Jasalicious Jewellery)!

And it seems that #50 (Brocade Tiger) is set to BUSY.. AND they have the WRONG poster up.

And #53 (DivaLicious) is GONE!

And # 55 (Bleeding Rose Designs) says NO PARCEL, can't tp to it.

It's so near the end, that if there are problems with ANY place you can't get to, or can't touch, just send me a note card and I'll set your KEY in the database as to "YES" you got the gift, so that you have no problem finishing the hunt. Please list which shops, and the reason, so that I can also contact the owners.

.... On an ironic note... got a note card today saying "Yes! You did it!"... telling me to relax... I could hug that person to pieces for being so sweet. They follow the blog and know what a headache and a half I've had with this hunt. But it looks like getting the bonus area out is NOT the end. Until everyone puts things away (all but bonus area) after the 14th, there will be plenty of headaches to come. :(

Happy Hunting!

#54 STILL missing

#54 - DivaLicious PROMISED me a few days ago that she would put the gift back out. It still is not out. I can't force someone to do it. But I will be sure not to let them into another hunt if they can't keep up with one because they are listed with 8.

If she does NOT put it out within the day, I will just delete her store completely from the hunt and then people won't have a problem getting the final gifts. Until then, if you need it, let me know and I'll re-set your name in the web site to show you getting it, so you can get the final bonus gifts.


YES! I figured it out! The tech support guys were stupid and didn't help at all! But I figured it out! And so everything is working again. Come on over!

We Are Currently Experiancing Problems

It seems that the web site is down. Or having problems. It is refusing to give the gifts. I'm calling them now. If they are in the office today. :(


YES! The bonus area is OPEN!

I waited as long as I could for the final 20 shops that promised to put gifts out but never contacted me.

Come back to the #1 location and go to the back of the shop, there is a big blue box. Click the box and it will check if you got all the shops done.

If you have, it will give you a HUD. Use the teleporter right next to the box to get up to the bonus area.

There are over 31 shops up there, walk alllllll around the area as some you have to walk near for it to rez. I will be posting here each shop that was so kind as to keep their word, and the few that even said no but now put a bonus gift out, sometime tomorrow.

If you do NOT get the hud, it says you don't have all the shops, but you think you should, contact me. I will check which shops you are missing.

Hunters... if you haven't finished the hunt, you have a week still. So try to finish, because some of the gifts go hand in hand with the bonus gifts. Like I know that the matching shoes for the dress by April's Vampire Funhouse are in the bonus box. So now is the time to finish the hunt.

And most of all... have fun!

Happy Hunting!

Almost There

One of the vendors asked me to wait till they got on to put their bonus gift up and open the area.

She JUST got on. I can't wait any longer, my doctor would be PISSED if he knew I'd back tracked on my sleeping because of the new meds I'm on.

So everyone will have to wait a few more hours. Sorry. I'll get it open in the morning, well it's morning now, so around noon.

God willing.... ;)

I will give you the good news that waiting the extra day put several more gifts in. Now we are up to 31 bonus gifts. Not as many as promised to begin with, and yes, I'm highly disappointed in those that promised then didn't even tell me why they weren't going to do it. But am greatful that with all the problems, those 28 followed through and the other 3 who said NO to begin with came up with gifts. I'll be listing them all here when it's open.

Till then... Happy Hunting!

UPDATE - Bonus Area - Missing Umbrellas


I had planned to get the bonus area up within the next half hour. But I have been helping get Jasmine Princess's umbrella's and bonus gifts out. She still is MIA, so must not have her computer fixed yet. But between MissMag and I we were able to find a few things she'd given us that she made that we could then put in the umbrella and the bonus gifts. However, not all of them are ready.

#2 - Princess Jasmine's Designs is up. The umbrella has been moved to her smaller shop.

#3 - Crimson Immortal Art is also up. :)

#4 - Jasalicious Jewellery is NOT up right now.

#24 - Jazzy Jestures - is also up.

#25 - Crimson Desire Vampire Supplies - is up.

One other that is getting put back up #53, it will be checked again in the morning as she told me she was putting it all back out.

Now... I promised to put the bonus area up by midnight, but I am in far too much pain. I have been helping all the above shops move their umbrellas and get their bonus stuff up. So I have to postpone till Saturday afternoon. I'm supposed to get up and go to church, but unless this pain lessens, I may not make it.

Sorry for the delay, but GOT to lay down. That is giving a few more to get their bonus gifts out. I know I said over half (35+) had said they would do it, and in fact 50 said they would... but so far, only around 25 are out. Sorry, I've hounded the rest for over a week.... But there ARE some very GREAT bonus gifts out. Thanks to all those that kept their word. :)

Till then... Happy Hunting!

4 Shops Have To Move

The Crimson Desire Mall had to shut down. You have a few minutes before they close it completely. I'm moving those shops into a temp location. But one of the owners, Jasmine Princess, is not around right now. So her gift will change to something she gave me before. So best to get the gift now while you can. :)

The shop numbers are 2,3,24,&25.

I will get them set up as soon as I can at AmberMyst.

Bonus Area Update

I just spent the last hour in-world trying to reach everyone that has NOT put a gift out. We have some of them out, about half of those promised, and just need to get the rest out.

Once we get the rest out, I will open it up. I had hoped to have it open by Monday, but here it is already Wednesday and I haven't been able to reach everyone who promised a gift.

As promised, I WILL have the area open for a month, regardless of when. So, don't worry, there are some GREAT gifts for those that complete the hunt. ;)

Dog Sick - Update

I haven't been able to get on today, my dog is VERY VERY sick. But I wanted to give you an update.

Last time I was on, several of the helpers were contacting those that hadn't gotten their bonus gifts out.

I will be on by afternoon tomorrow. HOPEFULLY all the gifts will be out and I can then open up the Bonus Area.

I will let everyone know SOON. Thank you.

Happy Hunting!

NO 35. Magia ( Moving)

Just got note from Myspirits Indigo , that they are moving so please use the slurl below to get to their store

thank you :)

No. 42 is repaired

Just message from Embyr and no 42 has been repaired. Those that didn't get the gift from there can come back and get it now :)

I'm SO sorry but..... oh and a Side Note

No no no! I'm not about to say I'm sorry BUT the bonus area isn't going to be. NO! We already have 18 shops with another 32 promised.

THAT is what I am sorry about. I think that I got it out late, so those that aren't able to get on on the weekend, it was already too late. Those that can, they are the ones that got the gifts out.

Whatever the issue, I had HOPED that all of them would be out by Monday. But I looked at all the shops that said they'd have a bonus gift, and it was MORE then the 50% I thought. But almost ALL of them! ALMOST. 50 said yes, of the 73.

So, starting first thing tomorrow morning, some of the helpers will be messaging and IMing and texting and leaving note cards and running around trying to reach those shop owners. ;)

As SOON as it is ready, the bonus area will be opened. I could open it now, but then you'd have to come back. ;) So hold on, a few more days. And do NOT worry, like I promised, the bonus area will be put out for a MONTH from the time it is out so that those that had to go away for a trip or whatever, will get the chance to get the bonus gifts.

So just hold on... it's coming. And will be SO worth the wait!

Now... on the side note, Bizet, the scripter, has told me she may not ever come back to SL when I tried to get one of the working scripts so I could run the hunt again later. So that is one less bonus gift, but also it means that whatever is going on... we will just have to suck it in.

Yes, some of the scripts, NO IDEA WHY, are getting caught in busy mode or something. Just let someone know, a helper from this site, and we will get it re-set as quickly as possible.

Thanks for your continued support during all this...
Happy Hunting!

Nothing New Yet.... But Checking In & Updating You

Just a quick update.... I had a doctor's appointment EARLY this morning, then had to run errands, get the new meds, shampoo my poor sick doggie with her new medicine shampoo, all those types of things that pretty much took the whole day.

I've only now, almost midnight, gotten a chance to look at the computer. And unfortunately I don't see any cards, or e-mails, or inventory offers from #42 or it's helper. So I can't update that one for you yet.

And I can't get in-world now. I have church in the morning. I will try to get on in the afternoon and see how we are coming with the bonus gifts. Hopefully they will be all out by Sunday, but that all depends on when the shop owners nice enough to give an extra gift, gets on. Otherwise, I will be on briefly Saturday night, or first thing Sunday morning.

I hope you all are having fun! See you all in-world! Until then... Happy Hunting!

Thursday, August 27, 2009


Yes, we will be extending the hunt till the 14th. And the gift area (bonus gifts) will be out for at least a month from the time that it is finished set up. That way everyone gets a chance, those that have to go on trips for work and all that stuff, to get their bonus gifts.

Happy Hunting!

#42 is Broken

#42 is broken... Sorry, but we have to wait till the store owner gets on so she can re-set the script.


The boxes have been handed out. The script is working, thank you Cammi Hudson! And everything is working...

Vendors are getting the gifts out...

So, just a matter of waiting till all the boxes are out, then I'll set up the hud giver. ;)

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Almost There!

Okay, not going to go into huge details, I'm sure you're getting bored of them, but will say that a friend helped with the scripts and got them fixed... well sort of. They worked when she was there, then I tested them when she left with an alt and it wasn't working. So I think I got the wrong script from her. Not sure, so waiting till morning to send out the boxes as I just got done finishing the list of shops that are giving bonus gifts.

You will ALL be happy to hear... out of the 73 shops, 55 have said YES and there are a few more that might too! We are waiting to hear. Only 5 have said "no" so far!

So though this bonus area is taking WAY longer to get together because Bizet didn't get the scripts done, it will be SO worth it in the end! Those that finish the hunt are going to get a HUGE amount of bonus gifts! It's super great! And all in one place! ;)

So... till then... Happy Hunting!

The Bonus Boxes Will Be Filled!

Well, I spent 10 hours today working on the scripts. I would have spent more but I had to take my dog to the vet. Of course by the time I spent that time and they STILL would not work... I have given up.

I have thrown in the towel.

The scripter can't get the hud to work and I can't get the second "hunt" site to work, she told me it should from what she saw, so we have NO idea why it isn't... and a friend who was trying to see why it wasn't working hasn't been able to get the scripts/boxes to stop talking to each other.

So... How am I going to deal with this?

There is ONE script that does work. It is the script for the final box. It would normally have looked to see if you completed the hunt, then given you the new hud and landmark to the special area. The new hud was then to open the special boxes. BUT since that isn't working....

ALL the gift boxes will use the final bonus gift script.

What does this mean? It means that it may take you twice as long as normal to get the gifts. But it won't take forever, just a little bit longer... Because what will happen, all people who complete the hunt will get the LM to the final location. They will go there, and touch the first box... It will ask the web site if you have completed the hunt...When the web site tells it you have, then it will give you the gift box.

Then you go to the next gift and it starts all over.

Yes, this is a bit of a pain, which is why I worked with the scripter for 2 weeks and worked on the scripts myself, and like I said, I'm pretty stupid when it comes to scripts, but I knew what things should look like when given the script to change for the new one, to an extent. But since my knowledge was no where near what was needed to find the problem, and two people who worked on it couldn't fix it or make it work... There isn't many options left for me.

Oh there are a few other options, all of which will take me HOURS and HOURS to impliment. Where as this will only take you an average of maybe an extra hour, probably a lot less, to do it this way.

And after all, they will all be in the same place so you can walk down the rows of tables and touch each gift and accept them as it comes to you. Not very hard, just a little more time consuming. ;)

So, as soon as all the shops giving bonus gifts have the boxes filled and put out at the new location, I will be letting everyone know. May take a few days, but I want to make sure each shop who was going to give them gets that chance, and the ones that decided to now, who weren't before, get the chance. So that when you get there, all of them are out and you don't have to come back and check later. ;)

Till then... Happy Hunting!

Got The Scripts but...

Got the scripts, but it's not working. I spent the last 6 hours trying to get them to work. Nope! 90% works, but I can only get one gift per bag, so gotta find out what is wrong... or quit on it.

I say quit cause we are in week two and I'm pulling my hair out. Haven't gotten things done around the house, haven't gotten new stuff for my place, have spent hours staring at these scripts that look like a foreign language to me.

So... I have one more mail out to the scripter... and I have a friend who is trying to fix something for me so that we can set these scripts out. She had to go to bed, early morning... but when she gets on tomorrow she will test it. She thinks she has it working. If she does, GREAT! I just wasted 6 hours. BUT if she can't... maybe I'll get an answer from the scripter as to why it's not working now when it did before.

Night...... Happy Hunting!

Sunday, August 23, 2009

Can you hear me sighing...?

I'm sighing, groaning, pounding my head on the table. I stayed close to the computer all day today, VERY close so that I didn't even get my house work done for fear I'd miss her, just to be sure I was here when she got on. But... no scripter. Not even a small message. Nothing.

Here is when I sigh some more. I got everyone packing the bonus gifts up and I have the option of just putting the one script in, but then everyone would have to wait while the box looked at the web site to see if they completed the hunt, for ever single box. Would take about 3 times the time to get the same amount of gifts that way. Not what I want, or you I'm sure.

So, I am sending up even more prayers that she reads her mail in the morning and deals with this. The last I heard she would be on Friday night. Since she wasn't, I'd kept hoping she made it on one day this weekend, after all she knew I was waiting on her..... But nothing.

This leaves me with no other options. No more testing, no more nothing. If she doesn't get on Monday, I'll just have to do it the hard way. But everyone send up a prayer that she gets on at work at least and checks her e-mail. I just need that one script, and I can get this set up. Everything else is all ready.....

Also, I put a sign out... so that people check the blog that have finished the hunt.... and find out that I AM trying to get them up... but it's not set up yet.

Talk to you soon! Happy Hunting!

Saturday, August 22, 2009

Nothing Yet....Again...

As you know, I always keep you up to date on everything, even the bad.... As also some of you know, I'm a Seventh-day Adventist, so I am not normally around from Friday night to Saturday night. But I kept around the computer all day today (Saturday), watching for an e-mail or an IM or something from the scripter.... Nothing.

Now, it is late enough that I know I won't see her tonight. So, since I haven't seen or heard from her... I have no idea when she will be on.

I have an idea... At first I hadn't suggested this idea because I thought that it would cause her more work. However, since knowing a lot of what she'd done, I was able to get on my domain and copy the files needed and make the folders and files and databases that would be needed.... I did that Friday night. However, if this idea works, I still need a certain script from her. But once I get that, it shouldn't take me but a few hours to test the theory and get things set up.

And if the next time I hear from her I find out this isn't going to work.... then I WILL go to plan B. What is it? Not telling! *giggles* Because I have 2 actually that will work, so will do the one that gets the bonus gift area set up as quickly as possible. With any luck it will be ready by Monday, well at least ready for the gift givers to load up with prezzies for all you great hunters! ;) Then the final gift box and LM will be set up for you hunters who have completed the hunt to grab!

I'm going to try to get to bed early tonight, knock on wood, because if I remember right, one Sunday the scripter got a chance to get on, it was like 8:30 am and I am NEVER on then unless I get to bed EARLY or not go to sleep! :D And I can't afford to stay up all night, got a new sleep study coming up, and I know it'll be hard to get up, but hope that I hear her BEEP when I get her IM... if I get it. ;)

So have a good night.... I will try to get a sign up because it seems some aren't reading the blog, so if you happen on someone that looks lost... please point them to the blog. Thanks!

Happy Hunting!

Nothing New.. yet...

Scripter didn't get on Friday night, so no news but that I will try one more thing, then giving up that that will get fixed.  If so, I'll put my plan B into motion... the final gifts WILL be out soon for everyone who completed hunt.

Going To Bed - Got ANOTHER Doctor's Appointment in the PM

Ok folks! I've got to get to bed. Though it IS 2 am. Hee hee. And my eyes are BURNING from staring at the screen for so many hours... but I have been doing things for the hunt.

First off... the scripts were tested, and don't work. I've got a message into Bizet about it and I'm looking at other ways to get this accomplished by the time Monday rolls around.  If her scripts do not work by then, then I have a few options that I worked on that will be VERY VERY time consuming for me, but will at least allow everyone to get up to the Bonus Gift House and grab a ton of great gifties! ;)  So send up a prayer that she gets it working.  For some reason when I saw her, it worked for me, but like last night, it only worked for me. A friend couldn't get it to work for her.  It's crazy!  But I haven't given up. ;)

Secondly I have to get up in time for the doctor's appointment. It's my pain doctor, so very important.  I actually have two pain doctor's but this one is for my morphine. So can't miss him!  Today's pain doctor was for my shoulder and back and stimulants to help counter all the other crud that is going on... which I won't bore you with the details about. ;)

Thirdly.... I am happy to say that there are more and more that are finishing up the hunt! Whoo hoo!  Almost 900 have registered, and not sure how many have finished yet, but it's a lot! With even more finishing as they get those final 3 that just registered.

Hunters... we do not have hints here, but you can find them via HUNT2HUNT group and the Hunt Locations blog. But I have no idea how good it is, because I know that a lot of the vendors move their umbrellas.  So if you have a problem, go to the Hunters' group (HUNT2HUNT - links available at almost all locations near the sign up posters) and ask someone in there. I know that several people there have great help and hints.

Now, I do not know when I can catch Bizet on, my doctor's appointment is right after noon, and that's when she gets on to catch me during her lunch break. So I probably will miss her. But I should be able to catch her in the evening.  I missed her this evening because I couldn't get home from my other doctor's in time.  Sucked! 

Need any help that you can't get from the Hunter's group, go to one of the "Helpers" listed on the left.  They are there to help you, no matter the problem. :)

Thursday, August 20, 2009

Almost There!

Keep your eye out! Bizet got me the scripts at lunch, but I'm on my mom's laptop and we are pushing it! I have to run! But wanted you to know, I THINK it's going to work. It did with me, but it was working with me before. So just need to test with others trying for gift and if it works... We will be able to get the bonus gifts out for those that have completed the hunt!

Gotta Get Some Sleep

After over 4 hours online with the scripter... We still haven't gotten it fixed.  I'm not totally discouraged... gotta keep the hope alive... But if it isn't working by this weekend, I'll find another way to get your bonus gifts put out and available to everyone.

Sorry for the delay. :(  LONG LONG day.  Online now for 16 hours again, so MUST go or I'll go insane. ;)

Night... Happy Hunting!

IMPORTANT Update & Information!

ALL the shops are now registered. If you have the NEW HUD (version 1.0) and it used to say you had completed it, if it was any stores less then 73, then it now will say you have NOT completed. Because the last shop, #48, registered today.

A warning about #48 - Yasmine was NOT the shop in there, she graciously gave another gift to fill the spot. So when you go there, remember, you were there before. She's also #6. So look for the SECOND unbrella. And if you happen to be new and get them both at the same time, just remember to follow #6's LM first, then later use the LM in #48.

One other shop has two. #66 is UPSTAIRS. Before when you went there, you were downstairs. She has TWO shops, two different kinds of gifts. And yes, she added #66 because we had a store drop out right before the hunt started after all the numbers were already assigned. So she was nice enough too to give another gift to keep the numbers in order. :)

So, you thought you finished but it says you haven't? Make sure you have the shops that registered last: #22, #48, & #72. If you have these shops, but it still says that you have NOT completed the hunt, then send a note card to me (Tiea Aeon) or Jasmine Princess. We can check the shops you have been to and let you know which one you are missing.

About #73: I understand that some have gotten the wrong LM to the location. There is a PG side and an adult side. The wrong LM was in #72 by accident. However, that has been fixed. The blog has the right location and her's has it now too.

I have a report that #33. I'm going to check it out when I get in, and I know that one of the helpers have left a note card with the owner. So give it a day.

.... And the scripter just got online, so have to stop here. More to come later, but this will help you now. ;)

#48 Is UP and WORKING! & UPDATE!

This is it! Shop #48 was dropped because they took their poster down and refused to talk to any helpers or myself. So Yasmine of Shop #6 has offered to add ANOTHER gift to the hunt! Thank you Yasmine! This is greatly appreciated!

So, head on over to the NEW Shop #48! But remember, when you were at Shop #6 before, you got a gift there somewhere. Don't try to click on the SAME umbrella, it won't give you a gift. Look for a SECOND umbrella. ;)

Now the hunt shops are ALL set up! If you have ANY problems with ANY one (I will be finding a good landing point for #73 for non adults sometime today) let someone know. If you need a shop reset, let me or Jasmine Princess know. One of us is usually on, so we can reset the shop that you had a problem with.

Now, as for the final gift... I'm testing the scripts now. I will put an update as soon as I know. Until then... Happy Hunting!

#22 Now Registered

#22 is now set up and registered. Only one left! Yeah!

Stop by #22 to get your gift!

Shop #72 is up!

Head on over, it's now working! Shop #72

Promising Update!

First off... I'm sorry. I had a doctor's appointment on Monday and was up early for it. When I got home, I was beat. The drive can take up to 45 minutes, 30 if I'm lucky. The meeting was longer, because it was a results meeting from my sleep study. By the time I got home is was afternoon and I was hot and tired. So I figured I had time for a nap before I needed to get on to catch the scripter. WRONG! I fell asleep and NOTHING would wake me up. The tv, my mother, NOTHING could scream at me enough to wake me... for 17 HOURS!

So I missed meeting the scripter. And I missed getting more done. But I have been on today and there is a NEW hud out. This hud is version 1.0. It is great! Because IT COUNTS! ;)

That's right, it counts how many shops, and how many you have left and if you have completed the hunt. Every time you TP to a new location, it re-registers. It does NOT show the last place you were. Ignor that part. BUT it shows the rest. So this is GREAT NEWS!

Now, where do you get one? Well I handed it out in a notice to the vendors. However, not all are on now, so you can get a new one at my place. It will ask you to register again, you say yes, and it says you are already registered, but gives you the new hud.

As for the final shops and final gifts... The final shops should be loaded, I know I keep saying that but I'm working with them right now, tonight sometime. Well I can't say all, but two of them will be. The last one I have to wait till someone gets on. But the other two are on now and I'm helping them out.

The scripter got the final scripts to me for the final bonus gifts. But one of the scripts isn't saving, it's giving me an error. I'm hoping that she can get on tonight. She mentioned this afternoon in an email that she would try. So hopefully that will get fixed soon.

However, no worries. I can see who finishes the hunt and if I have to hand the gifts out personally to each person I will. I HOPE this doesn't happen, right now there are a couple hundred on the edge of finishing. :) That'd be a LOT of name searches. ;) The GOOD news about this taking a little longer is that two shops who didn't have time to make a bonus gift have now made them. So there will be more final bonus gifts then we first hoped for.

So, hopefully things will be a lot better in a few hours... And luckily tomorrow I don't have ANY appointments. Nope, not till Thursday and Friday. :P

Happy Hunting!

Nothing On Sunday - Let's Hope For Monday

Okay, sorry to report this, but Bizet didn't show up at all today. At least none of the times that I was on waiting, and no messages via e-mail or anything. So I can only hope that she will get a message to me on Monday... basically in a few hours.

I have another doctor's appointment, yeah, I know, when don't I, hee hee, and so I HAVE to get to bed. I have about 4 hours left before I have to get up, 4 and a half if I push it, 5 if I REALLY push it. I stayed up with April trying to help her with her images for her box and to help her pack up her outfit. But because I have to go, it looks like #72 won't get packed till after I get back. She is going to try to catch one of the other helpers to help her pack it up as soon as she can, but she couldn't stay on any longer either.

As for the rest, #22 is meeting me this afternoon, after my appointment, and one of the other shops is doing a double gift to fill in for #48 that was dropped. I'd hoped that it all would get done by Sunday, but because two of the shops didn't get on till late, and I had to get up early, I pushed it as far as I could, as long as I could. As it is, I'm going to have a hard time waking in the morning. But we ALMOST got #72 done. We were soooo close! *LOL*

I'd like to thank the helpers real quick, they have been SO much help while I've had to deal with all the doctors' appointments. And I'd like to thank the hunters who have jumped around to the ones working till we could get the others working.

I HOPE that Bizet will contact me later today, I will keep trying to contact her. Worse comes to worse, we all know that the current HUD registers you and allows you to get the gifts, you just can't count them. It seems some work while other's don't, so I don't get that one either.

Thanks alot for everything... And wish me luck getting those last straggly shops put up. #72 wanted me to let you know that she would have had the gift done sooner if she hadn't had personal issues get in the way and she wanted to add something for men too. Seems the male item is what held it up lately.

Happy Hunting!

22, 48, 72... Missing In Action

I know there is a lot of chatter about those 3. And I'm sorry about it. Because I was waiting for Bizet to give me the final box and the final HUD for the bonus gifts, I was giving those 3 time. Two of them had personal problems to deal with, and the third,... well I already wrote about the 3rd.

I will be replacing the 3rd one with a gift of my own. But the other 2 will be registering tonight. Bizet was SUPPOSED to give me all that final stuff today. But I haven't heard from her in 3 days so I have no idea what is going on.

I will update this in about an hour or two. I have to take the dog outside to potty. See you soon..

Happy Hunting!

What To Do If You Are Done But...

I got a message from someone today that asked what to do if you have everything but the couple of gifts from shops not registered...

Hold on till Sunday. I am sorry, but Bizet has assured me that the gift boxes for the "bonus" boxes will be given to me on that day. It may take a few days after that, but I will know more then.

The final box will be set out then, and you will get a location to the bonus gifts.

As for the missing shops.... I am working on that right now. I will be helping one of the owners set up within the hour, and another set up within the next few. But I have to hurry, because I have to go to church in the morning and am half asleep. But since getting them won't unlock the final box until I have received it, there is no worry just yet.

Thank you for your patience.

Happy Hunting!

Quick Note About HUD

You don't need it after the first time you put it on. I posted that before, but one of my shop owners was just asking about it again. Once you wear it the first time, it registers you with the web site. Once you are registered, you are in. You can take the hud off and never wear it again and you would get the boxes open.

Only for this hunt, but it is all you need.

I'm Sorry, No New Hud Today - But Note...

Okay, here is what happened. I got on and talked to the scripter tonight. I found out that the HUD needs to be updated. That everyone has version .5 and that the HUD is now 1.0. I asked her to please give me the giver/joiner so that I could send it out to all the people. She said that she gave it to me. However, I wasn't in SL at the time. So when I got in, it was not there. Not from before when I was supposed to have gotten it and nothing tonight.

So the bad news is, until she gives it to me, I'll try to get it again tomorrow, I can't give it to everyone else. And until everyone can get it, they can't count right.

So for now, please keep ignoring the numbers on the HUD. It will be fixed soon.

She also gave me something else to give out to everyone.... A note.

Since I can't send a note here, I will just paste her note here for you:

To all involved in the Summer Fun Hunt.
If you have issues with the timing or performance of the scripts in the treasure or HUD, please bring them to me. Tiea Aeon hired me to write the scripts and I failed to deliver. I could regale you with RL issues that have kept me away but excuses will not change the fact that I was late and it was buggy. I wish all of you a wonderful second life

Bizet Sorbet.

Does Your Hud Say "Upgrade"? & End Gifts to Be Filled

I missed the scripter this morning. I was getting ready to go to the doctor, and lost track of time. When I realized that it was past time to meet her, I already had an email saying she'd be on tonight.

So I've messaged her back (hopefully she follows the blog too, something I've asked ALL the shop owners to do) and told her that I would be home from my doctor's appointment around 6pm. Because it looks like I have to go alone and do my mom's job at the church, she's sick and we've stayed home for her to rest a bit (she's sound asleep right now, I'm going to post this and sneak out) to see if she would feel good enough to go and we could both finish the bulletin together, thus getting it done faster, I'm going to be later then I had hoped to be. Might even be 7pm depending on traffic. With just me I'll get stuck unable to use the commuter lane and that can drag the drive to 45 minutes or more.

Anyway, I got a message from one of the helpers just before I was heading out that said someone told her her hud said to UPDATE. I have NO clue what is going on. The HUD is supposed to be fixed, so many the scripter will be giving me a new one tonight. If not, I will find out why it's doing that.

In the mean time, remember, if you need to have any reset (like #11 that was broken for awhile) please send a note card (my IMs get capped) to me or to Jasmine Princess. She is able to reset and we are on at different times.

When I get on tonight I will be helping the last two shops register, then I will be putting a gift box out for the shop that was dropped at my sim with a new plant for everyone. Or with some nice gift. Unless that is I get on and one of the shops has a gift... I offered them the slot first. ;)

I have to run, no time for more, but I hope this helps you all. Tonight we will start setting up for the final gifts for those that have completed the hunt. After tonight all shops should be registered, and then when the gift area is done, there are a lot of shops that have extra gifts, so need to catch them all on and have them fill the new boxes, I will post it here that the final gift box is ready.

Till then... Happy Hunting!
