Community Standards

Child Avatar Policy

Under our Community Standards policy, real-life images, avatar portrayals, and other depictions of sexual or lewd
acts involving or appearing to involve children or minors are not allowed within TanGLeGrid. When detected,
individuals and groups promoting or providing such content and activities will be subject to sanctions, which may
include termination of accounts, closure of groups, removal of content, and loss of land or access to land.

There are three key aspects involved in these materials or acts that are in breach of the Community Standards:

1) Participation by Residents in lewd or sexual acts in which one or more of the avatars appears to represent minors (or the depiction of such acts in images, video, textures, or text) is a violation of the Community Standards.

2) Promoting or catering to such behavior or representations violates our Community Standards. For instance, the placement of avatars appearing to represent minors in proximity to "sex beds" or other sexualized graphics, objects, or scripts would violate our Community Standards, as would the placement of sexualized "pose balls" or other content in areas depicting playgrounds or children's spaces.

3) The graphic depiction of children in a sexual or lewd manner violates our Community Standards.

TanGLe Grid reserves the right to immediately terminate the accounts of Residents who violate these standards. Warning: Any images, chat, or other conduct that leads us to believe actual minor children are involved will lead to swift action, including reporting to the appropriate authorities.

Discussion



In some cases there may be an element of subjectivity as to whether an avatar (or other image) appears to be a minor. Objective factors which will be used to decide, including whether an avatar has childlike facial features, is child-sized, has clothing or accessories generally associated with children, and whether, based on the circumstances, an avatar is speaking or acting like a child ("My Mommy says...").

Note: Merely having a childlike avatar does not violate this policy. It is not our intent to banish childlike avatars in and of themselves.

If you are in doubt as to whether an activity may be interpreted as ageplay, we request you err on the side of caution and desist. Please note that some countries laws may impose penalties for graphics, drawings, or anime that resemble child pornography, even where no children have been involved.
