The deadline has passes and applications are no longer being accepted for the button hunt.
Right now we appear to have 85 locations in this hunt :D
I'm currently in the process of moving some information around and just making sure that all approved vendors actually know that they were approved. (SL ate some group invites, go figure)
Keep checking back, I'll post the list of vendors in a couple days and then once we get closer to Feb. we'll start looking at what kinds of places you can look forward to visiting as hunters.
