The Lovinity Community / LoveyCube

In September 2014, I created The Lovinity Community, which was an online support community for those seeking friends or support. I integrated the technology from the discontinued WRRJ Radio project to bring an internet radio station to TLC. And I created a Discord server for the community. In 2017, it was renamed to LoveyCube with additional focuses on safe online dating and civil debates. The community was shut down in November 2017.

Several of the procedural documents I wrote for LoveyCube / The Lovinity Community were recovered and are available below. They were written at various times and may therefore be inconsistent with each other.

Discipline - Prosecution

This was a web page explaining to members what happened when they earned prosecution - discipline that carried punitive actions (often a result of significant violations or failing to do accountability actions).

Discipline guide

This was a comprehensive document on how moderators should address violations of certain Terms of Services.

Icon
Discipline - Demerits

This web page explained how the demerits system worked. Each discipline a member received carried temporary demerits against their account. Accumulating demerits resulted in more severe discipline and other limitations.

Discipline - Appeal

This web page explained how members could appeal issued discipline.

Icon
Discipline - Accountability

This is a web page that explained how accountability worked. In LoveyCube, non-serious rule violations could warrant a second chance through accountability; if the member did assigned tasks to learn from or better their behavior, they would avoid punitive discipline.

Icon
Credibility

LoveyCube had a sophisticated credibility system which gave members a score. The score was a general guideline on how credible a member was in the community. This is the web page that explained it.

Apply for Staff

Web page that explained how members could apply for a staff position and the qualifications / responsibilities of each position.
