Etiquette & Infraction Types

Last updated on 1/16/18: Since we are no longer affiliated with Chatlands, all information related to Chatlands has been modified and removed. Please look over the following rules to ensure you are up to date and understand the changes that were made: Multiple Accounts, Severe Infractions, Misinterpretation & False Reporting, Illegal Propositions (Minors & Adults), and Selling Accounts & Exploitation.


Keeping the Peace
We believe in a community that leads and takes care of itself – members are expected to keep the areas of Louloudia calm, peaceful, and friendly of their own accord. To assist in preserving a comfortable atmosphere, a group called Peacekeepers watch over the community and are available should any problems arise. It is important to note that Peacekeepers are not meant to be seen as disciplinary administrators, but as literal keepers of the peace. They will assist you within reason and do their best to aid you whenever possible.

Our System
All cases are approached and handled individually, as each situation is unique in its own way, and may not always result in the same way as another. The Peacekeepers of Louloudia reserve the right to take any kind of action against an account on our forum, chat, or Discord server for any reason without notice, whether the infraction taking place is listed in the following information or not, but will always try to avoid such an occurrence if possible.

Louloudia as A Whole
The rules below apply to all of Louloudia and are not limited to its chat system. Any of the infractions listed below that take place on Louloudia’s chat system, forum, or Discord server may result in warnings, suspensions, or a permanent ban. Account penalties will take place on the forum and chat system of Louloudia, and will occur at the same time. Any members that receive account suspensions may still have access to our Discord server depending on the severity of the situation, however, any Severe infractions will result in permanent bans across all of Louloudia, including the Discord server. Please understand that the following rules are set in place to protect the members of Louloudia, yourself included.

Information below may be updated at any time. Any changes made will always be announced, however, as a member of our community, it is your responsibility to always be up to date on Louloudia’s rules. Upon using our forum, chat, and Discord server, you have agreed to abide by the following information on all areas of Louloudia. If you have received a ban from Louloudia and would like to speak with the Peacekeepers regarding your situation, or have any questions about any of the rules below, please fill out a Problems & Feedback form.


On Louloudia, infractions are separated into 3 different types.

 


are usually matters that can be settled by those involved in the dispute in question. Peacekeepers will only intervene if the occurrence escalates to an extreme, or if a member requests a Peacekeeper to aid them in finding a resolution. It is entirely possible for members to resolve their own conflicts, and we encourage this first before contacting a Peacekeeper.

The following are Minor Infractions that can be resolved without the action of a Peacekeeper, but may result in a gentle reminder or a warning, depending on the conflict.


Be respectful and considerate. Don’t discriminate, harass, threaten, bully, instigate, or treat others negatively.
Louloudia is meant to be a calm and peaceful place where members can relax. To maintain this gentle atmosphere, we ask that you keep excessive cursing, spam, trolling, and inappropriate content (overly sexual or anything that may be seen as “disturbing” to the general public) to yourself or in a private area. Causing discomfort or being generally distasteful towards others is inconsiderate and impolite. It is your obligation as a member of this community to treat others respectfully. Please adhere to any requests if a member asks for a subject change or for the conversation at hand to be dropped. Louloudia is a place of peace, and while we encourage healthy discussion, we also feel that honoring someone’s wishes when it comes to comfort is very important. Likewise, please understand that Louloudia also encourages controversial debates so long as everyone remains civil and appropriate. There is always the option to create a private area of your own if you wish to take a conversation elsewhere, or if someone has asked for a subject to be changed and you wish to continue.

Substance Use
Educational or casual conversations regarding substances are permitted unless anyone becomes uncomfortable. Talk of substance use is discouraged in public areas (the forum and public chat rooms) but is not entirely forbidden.
Open discussions or educational conversations regarding legal, illegal, recreational, or medicinal drugs are allowed, however, these subjects may require a change in conversation should anyone request it. Please refrain from publicly stating either consistently or inappropriately that you are under the influence of any recreational, medicinal, or other substances and be considerate to those around you.

Recording or Sharing Screenshots
Sharing screenshots and recording GIFs or videos of real-time chatting is encouraged.
As an interactive community, Louloudia encourages members to engage in taking screenshots as well as videos of their experiences on the chat. Please always be courteous of others in the area by simply giving notice that you are going to take a screenshot or begin recording. This will provide an option for others to leave, switch poses, or move further from view depending on their comfort level of the situation. Please keep in mind that use of screenshots or videos to blatantly abuse another member of the site will be treated as harassment.

Multiple Accounts
Please limit yourself to one account in one area at a time in chat, and one forum account per person.
Please refrain from using more than one account in one area at a time. Multiple accounts in different areas are welcome so long as you do not use this advantage to bypass being placed on Ignore, to break a rule, or to eavesdrop or spy on others in chat. We only allow one forum and Discord account per person.


are disturbances within Louloudia that require a Peacekeeper to diffuse. A Peacekeeper will always react to any of the following infractions that occur on Louloudia, which may result in a reminder, a warning, or a temporary suspension placed on the accounts involved, depending on the offense.

Age Requirement & Rating
Louloudia maintains a minimum age requirement of 16 years old with no exceptions. All shared content must be appropriate for members of the minimal age of 16.
All members of Louloudia must be at least 16 years of age. We have established a substantial amount of leniency in regards to Louloudia and its rules, resulting in an expected maturity from our members. In addition to this, any information shared on Louloudia must always relate to this rating and must be appropriate for members of the minimal age of 16. Any publicly shared content that is over a general 16+ rating may result in a ban to protect other members from inappropriate subject matter.

Harassment, Discrimination, & Threats
Any form of harassment, discriminatory behavior, or threatening of others will not be tolerated.
This includes gestures, words, or actions that are meant to intentionally annoy or disturb others around you on chat or forum. The use of slurs and discriminatory terms that reference culture, sexual orientation, any gender, race, or religious belief are not tolerated in our community. Though we acknowledge that you may want to embrace our higher rating with freedom of language to joke around with friends, please take into consideration the impact your words can have on other members. Our community consists of members from a variety of different backgrounds, and everyone deserves to feel welcome. We have also established a very strict intolerance of threats toward another member at any time; bodily, emotional, or psychological harm of any kind is absolutely unacceptable. This includes threatening a member personally or those around them with the intent to harm the original member emotionally or psychologically. Threatening to hack, kill, or rape a member or anyone else, even in jest, is absolutely not tolerated. Joking or making fun of a threat or someone being threatened in any way will also be taken very seriously. We are entrusting our members with being responsible with their words and actions in this way, and expect everyone to remain civil and courteous towards others at all times.

Art Theft & Copyright Infringement
Respect others and always provide proper credit when using artwork on Louloudia and never use artwork without permission.
Each situation relating to art theft or copyright infringement will be handled case-by-case. Louloudia’s art related guidelines and rules are still in progress, but this does not mean that anything is allowed or that theft will be overlooked. Please be respectful when posting or using artwork on Louloudia, and feel free to approach any Peacekeeper or Muse if you see questionable content or are unsure of anything related to artwork.


require quick and severe action, and will result in an immediate permanent ban from Louloudia in its entirety – this includes Louloudia’s chat system, forum, and Discord server. The infractions below are extremely serious and strictly intolerable, and may result in required contact of specific local or state-wide authorities.

Misinterpretation & False Reporting
Lying or falsifying serious information about your well-being will be met with a revocation of the privilege to use Louloudia entirely. Submitting false reports in an attempt to get another member banned will result in action being taken against your own accounts across Louloudia. 
While it is not our business what you share with others, blatantly lying about the following subjects will result in serious action taken against you and your account, depending on the specific situation: faking your own or someone else’s death, a serious illness, miscarriage or pregnancy, abuse, trauma, or falsifying anything related to the aforementioned. We do not condone purposely causing grief for others by sharing false information, and Peacekeepers reserve the right to do what they feel is necessary in order to protect Louloudia’s members from such trauma and behavior. Each case will always be treated as a unique and individual situation. In relation to this, falsifying any other information when presenting a situation to the Peacekeepers, such as creating fake logs, will not be tolerated.

Illegal Propositions (Minors & Adults)
Adults offering minors access to illegal activities or a minor baiting an adult will be met with immediate permanent bans across all of Louloudia. Any related offenses may result in required contact of specific local or state-wide authorities.
The illegal propositioning of minors is a very serious offense. If a member under the age of 18 is ever approached illegally by a member over the age of 18, the adult’s account will be banned permanently from Louloudia in its entirety. This includes, but is not limited to, an adult offering a minor access to drugs, cigarettes, alcohol, propositioning sexual acts or sex itself, or any other illegal items or activities. There are absolutely no exceptions to this rule and is simply in place for the safety of all of Louloudia’s members, even if the minor involved has given their consent to the situation. If a minor is ever found to be propositioning or “baiting” an adult (as in, enticing an adult to perform illegal acts with a minor for the minor’s benefit or to their advantage), all of the accounts in question will be permanently banned from all of Louloudia’s platforms. For this particular subject, local or state-wide authorities relating to the instance in question will be contacted as well.

Selling Accounts & Exploitation
Account information should never be sold to anyone, and exploiting system errors for personal gain will result in a removal from our community. 
Although we encourage profit and use of the market here, selling and purchasing accounts would result in security risks for all parties involved, as well as miscommunication and confusion in general. A single member is responsible for their own account(s) and sharing any account information is prohibited. Regardless of compensation, any members involved in the transaction of an account will unfortunately receive a ban placed on all accounts. Any tampering with bugs or errors in order to gain monetarily is considered exploitation and will not be tolerated. This includes real-life currency (USD, EU, AU, etc) as well as Louloudia’s Crystal Fragments. If a member is found to be exploiting a glitch for personal gain, anyone involved will be removed from the community immediately with absolutely no chance to return.
