Lacebook Official Announcement

Posted with permission from wonderfinch.

We're growing very fast here over at Lacebook! What was originally intended to be a private group between a small number of Facebook friends for the purpose of sharing outfits with each other, in the spirit of sites like Daily_Lolita or the old Lolita Snap, has quickly grown into something much larger than it ever planned on being! In the past week our membership has really taken off, with over 150 new members being added in 24 hours, and we're still getting around 100 new accounts awaiting approval a day.

Membership is currently done via an invite system, with current members able to invite a limited number of non-members. From there, individual new accounts are checked over by the admin to make sure everything is in order and they were invited by a legitimate member. We encourage members to only give their invite code to people they personally know, and not to random strangers who might be asking for one, we track invite codes and members may be held accountable for other people that they invite and may lose invite privileges if they're found to be giving their invite codes to people they cannot personally vouch for. This is done to ensure that the site stays a safe place for Lolitas to share their photos, free from the prying eyes of creepers or trolls.

Another reason for the limited membership is because of the expense of the site, which will cost between $400 and $500 a year. Limiting the number of people who join keeps this cost from going any higher. While membership is completely free, we will gladly and graciously accept contributions of any amount from whoever is kind enough to offer. A contribution button can soon be found on our site.

In the future, once the site is up and running, there will be a way for people who may not know anyone who's already a member to be able to request an account, but this is something that's still being worked on.

If you need to contact any member of the team please email lolitafashionsnaps@yahoo.com, and we will try to answer any questions you might have, but because of the overwhelming volume of messages we are receiving, it may take upwards of a week to respond. We are very open to any suggestions you might have to make the site a better place for everyone!

Currently, we're still in the Beta stages and are making a number of changes to things and will continue to make changes to Lacebook in order to make it be the best site it can be and to provide a safe and welcoming space for Lolitas. The best way to keep up with what’s going on in Lacebook is to follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/lacebookupdates

This Thursday, membership will temporarily close until Monday while the admins are on a brief vacation. The site will still be active and modded, but no new invite codes will be given out, or accounts approved, until the following Monday when they return.

Thanks.

The Lacebook Team
