Q. I can't find the 'youfoundit' bunny?
A. The shops have been asked to locate the 'youfoundit' bunny two clicks from the front page -- but where you start your search among the menu items on each website also affects how many clicks it will take you to find the right page.
They have also been asked to give hints on the front page on each site and respond to email questions with hints if needed.
During a FabShop Hop there are thousands hoppers hopping and shopping. You can imagine how daunting it is to try to respond to hundreds of emails daily. Please do your best to locate the 'youfoundit' bunny before asking.
Remember, we want you to look around these sites and you have a whole month.
Q. I haven't received a response to my e-mail questions, why?
A. Over 100,000 hoppers participated in FabShop Hop. While we really wish we could personally answer every one of the 1,000+ e-mails we receive every day during the Hop, we simply cannot. Imagine what a daunting task this is! Instead, we send out general responses that cover the major issues and the most frequently asked questions that arise during a Hop. We hope you understand that we are not ignoring your concerns. If you don't find the answers to your questions at FAQs or in the weekly FabShopHopNews bulletin please be patient and we will try to answer your questions as time allows.
