Keeping the Peace as a Community

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. Peacekeepers are not meant to be seen as disciplinary administrators, but as literal keepers of the peace. These volunteers do their best to aid you whenever possible, but as a community, you are ultimately responsible for the way it is upheld and maintained.

Purpose of a Peacekeeper

As with most places, you are expected to abide by certain guidelines to ensure the comfort and safety of our members. Although our rules are lenient, certain violations are inexcusable. When a member of Louloudia has been harassed, bullied, or otherwise discriminated against, our Peacekeepers will immediately investigate the situation and act accordingly. They are trusted to enforce our guidelines by issuing reminders, warnings, or removals from our community. Our current team will be listed here soon.

The Ways of Louloudia

All cases are treated separately 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, but will always try to avoid such an occurrence if possible. Peacekeepers use their best judgment in every situation to protect our community members, and sometimes this requires immediate, severe action. Account penalties will take place on Louloudia’s Forum, Chat, and Discord server, and will occur at the same time.

Disclaimer

Warnings, bans, or removals from our community can take place directly, through private messaging, or through e-mail. Per our Terms of Service (link coming soon), we may terminate your access to all or any part of the service at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice. Our rules and 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 keep 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.


General Rules of Louloudia

Age Requirement & Rating (16+)

You must be at least 16 to use any form of Land of Louloudia. All shared content must be appropriate for members of this age. We do not allow content that is not safe for work (NSFW) anywhere in this community.

Disrespecting Others

Discrimination, harassment, threats, bullying, instigating, and disrespectful behavior are not tolerated here. Terms or phrases that are abusive in a racial, ethnic, sexually explicit, defamatory way or that are invasive in a sense of personal privacy or publicity rights are absolutely unacceptable. Be mindful, courteous, and respectful at all times. Remember the golden rule: Treat others how you wish to be treated.

Illegal Activities

We do not allow illegal activities such as hacking, drug or substance abuse, fraud or scams, etc. Talk of substance use is discouraged in public areas; however, educational or casual conversations regarding these subjects are permitted unless anyone becomes uncomfortable.

Misinterpretation & False Accusations

Falsifying serious information about yourself or another person’s well-being is a serious and ban-worthy offense. Submitting false reports in an attempt to get another member banned will result in action being taken against your own accounts. In relation to this, we do not condone any kind of retaliation or vengeful behavior.

Illegal Propositioning

Any propositioning of adults or minors is absolutely not tolerated. If an adult is ever found or suspected of grooming a child, or a minor is ever found or suspected to be baiting an adult, all of the accounts in question will be permanently banned from all of Louloudia’s platforms. Local or state-wide authorities relating to the instance in question will also be contacted immediately. In addition, all relevant information will be forwarded to the Chatlands Guardians.

Selling Accounts & Exploitation

Account information should never be sold or given to anyone. Exploiting system bugs or errors for personal gain will result in a removal from our community. Hacking an account or planning any kind of cyber attack will also result in a permanent ban from all of Louloudia’s platforms.

Art Theft & Copyright Infringement

Always provide proper credit whenever possible while using artwork on Louloudia, and never use artwork without permission.


Peacekeeping & Moderation

Please keep in mind that the Peacekeepers handle situations as they arise, case by case. As a result, some situations may require some time for discussion among the Peacekeepers. Members involved will be informed of their dispute status when a conclusion is reached. Please be aware that because each case is unique, conclusions may result in different resolutions. This means that problems may or may not end with a ban.

To keep Louloudia running smoothly for all members involved, including the Peacekeepers, we’ve divided our rules into 3 simple tiers. This helps to keep things condensed, simple, and gives our Peacekeepers a guideline to follow when facing certain issues. The tiers are labeled Minor, Major, and Severe and are described below.

Minor infractions can usually be resolved between community members peacefully. For example, a member may ask that a subject be changed, or speak out by gently sharing that something or someone has offended them. The other party could respond in a polite manner, and things may be peacefully resolved.

Subjects that may fall under a Minor infraction:
Disrespectful behavior, substance abuse, minor arguments, heated discussions, requests to change conversation

Major infractions may require a Peacekeeper to be involved if a situation does not soften on its own. These types of situations may result in a polite reminder of our rules, a gentle warning, or a temporary suspension placed on the accounts involved. Please notify a Peacekeeper through direct message or problem ticket.

Subjects that may fall under a Major infraction:
A member is found to be under 16, art theft or copyright infringement, disrespectful behavior that may have escalated, or if any other situation is unable to be resolved naturally

Severe infractions will result in a permanent removal from our community. If you notice anything that may be detrimental towards another or that falls under the subjects below, please ping the Peacekeepers on Discord as soon as you can.

Subjects that may fall under a Severe infraction:
Illegal activities, illegal propositioning, misinterpretation & false accusations, trolling, selling of accounts or exploitation, the intent to harm others via threats of any kind

Again, the tiers above demonstrate examples of how things may be handled and are used as a general guideline when facing controversy in our community. Because situations can be so diverse and unique to each individual, cases will likely never be dealt with in the exact way as another.
