Terms of Service changes / confusion clear-up

Lovinity#8580 is in the usergroup ‘Administrator’

Hello Members.

There have been a bit of confusion in the terms of service, stating on the rules about a 12.3 and a 12.4 regarding respect of staff... when in the official TOS 12.3 and 12.4 dealt with disciplinary appeals and zero tolerance policy rules.

To clean up the confusion, 12.3 and 12.4 in the official TOS will be left alone. However, effective immediately, the following three TOS additions are in…

LoveyCube radio is back; we think we resolved the issue. We have a couple new radio shows and some other things to showcase in this week's newsletter.

LoveyCube Radio is back; now streaming in Discord; changes to how we do radio shows

We fixed the underlying issue causing our radio computer to crash often. Thus LoveyCube radio is back. A couple changes were made as well. The first change being that LoveyCube Radio is now being streamed via Loveybot in our Discord server.

LoveyCube Radio back online; a few changes made to show hosting

Lovinity#8580 is in the usergroup ‘Administrator’

We have identified the likely culprit to the continued crashing of our home computer, which runs LoveyCube. We put a fix in place and are currently running tests to see if the computer will randomly crash anymore. The issue seems to be resolved, though we are continuing to monitor. LoveyCube Radio is back online for now unless more crashes occur.

We have also changed how we handle show requests for LoveyCube Radio. The new policy is the…

Charlottesville solidarity statement

Avatar

Lovinity#8580 is in the usergroup ‘Administrator’

LoveyCube pays their solidarity and sympathy to the lives lost in the Charlottesville White Nationalist protests. The actions set forth in those protests do not represent the greater community. We condemn any form of racially-motivated violence or violence influenced by any form of discrimination. And we hope that the deeply-rooted white supremacy culture is dismantled soon.

For our LoveyCube members I ask of the following from you.

Activity Index calculation changes

Avatar

Lovinity#8580 is in the usergroup ‘Administrator’

The activity index is now calculated based on activity from the last 7 days, opposed to the original calculation of activity within the last 30 days. We feel this would be a better calculation given most of our activity happens in real time in our Discord server. And typically activity has little to no impact in the community after 7 days.

Leaders for activity as well as activity % and STAR index calculations also now base off of activity within the last 7…

Why [many] Men are Single

Avatar

Lovinity#8580 is in the usergroup ‘Administrator’

Men... do you wonder why so many of you are seemingly single and cannot find a woman who loves you? I have a theory that can explain a big part as to why this is true: It's because many women have given up on you.

It is 2017 and women STILL do not have their right to choose [abortion] nor their right to quality maturnal and sexual healthcare protected and fulfilled.

Women are still paid less than men for the same jobs and the same amount of…

Part of my commitment as the CEO of LoveyCube is that I want to establish fairness. A lot of communities are iffy when it comes to server rules because of the question "What happens when the administrator breaks their own rules?" In LoveyCube, whenever I violate my own rules, I offer a public apology and a huge no strings attached Yang reward to anyone who wishes to claim…

The following is our current plan of how we're going to phase in the new focus for The Lovinity Community+. The plan is subject to change at any time without notice. Dates of each phase are not guaranteed.

  • Phase 1 (Beginning of June): We will add the ability of users to log in and create an account on our website using their discordapp.com account. Current users who have had their Discord ID put in their profile will get their accounts linked to discordapp.com (so they will use discordapp.com to log in from then on). Me

Website upgrade report

Avatar

Lovinity#8580 is in the usergroup ‘Administrator’

The most recent website upgrade was not 100% successful. The upgrade broke our async code that allowed certain resources to load in parallel to the webpage to speed up response time. As a result, we had to remove the async code. The two unfortunate consequences are the following:

  • It will take longer for our website pages to start rendering
  • A few minor things may be broken throughout the website (please report them to [email protected]).

Ten reasons to never make nor accept another promise again

Lovinity#8580 is in the usergroup ‘Administrator’

A lot of people, arguably most of us, have been met with the misfortune of someone making a promise and not fulfilling it. And when it happens, we are often left feeling broken, confused, angry, and like we cannot trust another human being again. The truth is that promises are actually a very bad idea and do nothing but set people up for disappointment. I am going to list 10 reasons why you should never make nor accept another promise again. And then afterwards, I will propose an alternative to…

Mid-week Update - March 28, 2017

Avatar

Lovinity#8580 is in the usergroup ‘Administrator’

Hello Members.

This is a quick mid-week update on the happenings on lovinity.org . Because of a brute force login attack, I was not able to send a formal weekly newsletter last week.

In terms of the brute force attack, the addition of a website passphrase has seemingly stopped the brute force login attack. Therefore as long as attacks stay clear, the website should stop going down so frequently for security checkpoints.
