Code of Conduct

By participating in the Loshenka community, you agree to abide by these terms. Violations may result in appropriate action taken by the staff.  If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us via the Discord's #help-channel or #help-tickets channel.

Joining The Group

  • To join the group, you must have a Discord account, a Deviantart or Toyhouse account, and at least 1+ month of original art/writing activity on social media.
  • You must be at least 13 years old (or the minimum age dictated by your local jurisdiction) in order to join the group.
  • When you're ready to join, follow these steps to complete your membership:
    • Create an account on Loshenka.net.
    • Verify your email, then connect an alias here.
    • Hop into our Discord server and post in the #introductions channel. 
  • Once you've completed these steps, you're good to go! A staff member will verify you within 48 hours.

General Guidelines

  • Be kind. No racism, homophobia, transphobia, harassment, or other nonsense. Be respectful toward all members.
  • Engage with the group in good faith. Do not attempt to cheat, scam, or find loopholes in our systems. Let us know if you find something broken/exploitable!
  • You may not create a Loshenka without permission. All Loshenkas must be obtained through proper means and ownership must be logged accordingly.
  • Please keep in mind that our staff team is made up of volunteers. Do not pressure, harass, or hint at staff to work on submissions. Do not block staff members.
  • We do not have any activity requirements within the breed, and will not enact reclaims except in the case of scamming/non-payment.
  • Loshenkas can be used in a variety of contexts (HARPG, OCs, DnD, etc), but should not be used to glorify or graphically depict sensitive topics.
  • Loshenkas may not be used in any work involving NFT/blockchain technology, AI art/literature, or sexual content.

Buying & Selling

  • The group does not uphold individual users' breeding or sale rules, such as parent slots, buyback/dibs, etc. These are considered courtesy rules only and are not enforceable.
  • Loshenka horses, slots, items, etc may be sold for any form of currency or exchange, including group assets (items/currencies), real money, other sim currencies, etc.
  • Deals made involving undesigned/unregistered horses are "at your own risk." This includes trading horses for future slots, etc.
  • We encourage you not to officially transfer horses/slots until payment is received. This reduces the risk of scamming or complications.

Designs & ART/LIT

  • You may bring in an existing design as long as it rightfully belongs to you and doing so does not violate the designer's TOS. The original designer must be listed as such.
  • All designs must be original. Do not copy other designs, reuse markings or elements, etc, even with permission or ownership of both (i.e. twins).
  • When removing a design from the breed, please either use a Paintbucket before selling it (so that the same design isn't a Loshenka and a non-Loshenka) or request to Decease it.
    • Their coat design will be yours to keep, but is no longer associated with the breed. They should not be labeled or represented as Loshenkas.
    • Any art on official Loshenka lineart (such as their design) may no longer be used, and must be removed if you have uploaded it to places such as Toyhouse.
  • We do not claim ownership over the art/literature posted to Loshenka.net. All art/literature should be individually credited.

Ban Policy

  • All bans and suspensions are ultimately up to staff discretion.
  • In the event of a ban:
    • Your horses' coat designs are yours to keep, but are no longer associated with the breed. They should not be labeled or represented as Loshenkas.
    • Any art on official Loshenka lineart (such as their design) may no longer be used, and must be removed if you have uploaded it to places such as Toyhouse.
    • Designs owned by you at the time of your ban will be removed from the breed through our Deceasing process. IDs and names will be kept intact for lineage/tracking purposes.
    • You are no longer permitted to participate in the group in any capacity, and may not submit art of or be involved with anyone else's Loshenkas.
    • All of your currency, items, and pending deals (art/horses/slots/etc) are considered void.
  • Bans are considered permanent unless otherwise stated, and cannot be appealed.
