The Kupikan Handbook
As written by Hina.
In order to create a better experience for most of us, the following are prohibited:
1) illegal content (child pornography, bestiality, scams/frauds)
2) porn (when viewable in public or unsolicited)
3) other people's personal information
4) unsolicited cybering, public cybering
5) harassment -- still need your
Let me explain in more details. This could also serve as a guideline for our volunteers.
I think this one is self-explanatory. You know one when you see it. For example, child porn: there should be no
questions asked. However, some things are "questionable" (could be legal OR illegal). In this case, if you are not 100%
absolutely entirely sure that the content is illegal, the member cannot be banned. Only ban the member when it is
obvious that the content is illegal.
Illegal content is not allowed in any place in Kupika. When you encounter one, ban the member immediately.
Porn is NOT ALLOWED in public places, such as profile pages, public diaries, public pics, public pages,
personal ads, etc.
However, assuming the involved members are mature adults, porn IS allowed in private places, such as private
clubs, messages, letters, etc. Again, this is assuming all parties involved are adults (at least 18 years old) and
consenting to the activities.
Child porn is NOT ALLOWED. It is illegal.
Unsolicited porn is NOT ALLOWED. If you receive some porn from a stranger, you can screenshot the message and report
the offender here, which should lead to a ban.
It is allowed to post your own personal information (home address, phone number, photo, etc.). It is your own
property after all.
It is also allowed to post other people's photos as long as there is no objection from the people in the photos. IF
the people depicted in the photos object to their photos being shown on Kupika, then the photos must be taken down. Warn
the member first, and if he doesn't comply, ban him.
Home address and phone numbers of other individuals (not your own) must never be posted anywhere on Kupika. Warn the
member first, and if he doesn't comply, ban him.
UNSOLICITED CYBERING, PUBLIC CYBERING
This is very annoying, especially when someone receives something like this:
*GRABS YOU and Holds you against the wall and my Hands go down and rub your fuzzy ...
Cybering in public places is not allowed either. Flirting is okay, but if you want to take it further, please do so
For those who cyber in public places, first time warn, second time ban.
Instant ban for those who send explicit unsolicited messages.
Do not use / claim other person's "work" as your own.
"Work" = oekaki, photos, poems, etc.
Instant ban for plagiators.
It does not matter whether it is real people or hentai. It is still considered porn.
However, if you are not 100% absolutely entirely sure the illustration/animation is child porn, it cannot be
considered "child porn".
Likewise, if you are not 100% absolutely entirely sure the illustration/animation is porn, it cannot be considered
Please refer to the "PORN" section in the first post above.
Club emblems are public. Porn in public places is not allowed.
