As some of you may know I was recently indefinitely suspended (March 13) on LiveJasmin because of some new vague rules they implemented on March 8 with strong punishments right away. After working on the site more than 80 hours a week for 11 years, I was quite insulted and unhappy with this extreme response and their unwillingness to help models adjust to this sudden change in policy.
I lost seven hours of what is usually one of my busiest nights trying to address this issue with LiveJasmin admin but they would not reverse the decision. There seemed to be a lack of clarification of what was and wasn’t acceptable among the staff, initially causing further confusion on what was and wasn’t acceptable on camera. Eventually I found out what I did on camera to be suspended was acceptable under the new rules. I know other models were suspended for vague or contradictory reasons and I hope this will be fixed as well.
My suspension was lifted for now, however many things still remain unclear. I will be having a meeting with Jasmin on Monday, March 15 to try and get more clarification. I will be addressing the need for more precision about how their admin interpret and carry out the new rules as well as the need for better support and understanding from the site to assist in a smoother transition and be more efficient when helping models. Hopefully we can get things managed better and avoid such drastic reactions which can be inconsiderate and harmful to so many models jobs and earnings.
Here is an example of the warnings we get and just how unclear it is for us to know what the warnings are about. There is clearly a lack of clarification in how this is implemented and is very confusing and gives us no chance to fix the issue or even understand why there is an issue (typically there is a screenshot showing the rules violation instead of the trophy symbol):
In the meantime I will be hopping around like a good bunny should so if you want to follow my little tail around, or find out more of what is happening, it is best to follow me on Twitter for more immediate updates on my status. If I’m not at my usual warren, you can find me HERE for now or click on the banner to the right.
Thank you all again for your show of support during this time. I especially want to thank the models who shared their experiences with this new rule change as well. When I have my meeting I will continue to try to do what I can to help all models during this transition period and create a better, smoother understanding and implementation of the rules for all involved.
And I apologize to my members if my usual dancing is toned down dramatically for the moment.
NOTE TO MODELS (and anyone wishing to understand the rules situation).
The rules are still unclear so far and Jasmin did not use their usual procedure in alerting models to the major new rules and requirements which added to the confusion, so it’s probably better to play it safe for the moment until things get handled better. But if this can help your case, here is some information that may be useful.
There was no mention on Jasmin’s post in our News section telling us that we could get more details about the new policy (and link) on Jasmin Wiki. I went to the Wiki page and tried to see the new rules but couldn’t find any NEW or UPDATED info there.
So as of today (March 16), if you go on the “Visitor Handling and Chat Behavior” page you will STILL find this: https://wiki.livejasmin.com/display/EW/Visitor+Handling+and+Chat+Behavior#VisitorHandlingandChatBehavior-freechat
and on the same link, there is this about Fetish Category (showing toys being displayed, which is now not accepted):
Also If you go on the usual page to understand the rules for each category https://wiki.livejasmin.com/display/EW/Categories
you will find this, stating in a larger font that:
“Appearance - In all nude categories sexually provocative clothes and poses are allowed.”
Yet someone somehow found that at ONE place in wiki Jasmin it did give a “little” more details about the new rules, yet is still very vague. On this page you will find:
Wiki – Basic Information & Beginner Guide – Categories and Rules – Penalty System – Explicit Behaviour and non-glamorous attire or room (have to scroll down to see it and not obvious to find this at all and I would’ve never known of it if someone did not send me a screenshot and the link directly): https://wiki.livejasmin.com/display/EW/Penalty+system
Sadly, Jasmin seemed to fail at doing the proper procedures like updating the wiki and sending emails to models and studios in a timely and clear manner. So I wish you all good luck and hope you don’t run into any trouble while this gets straightened out.
After my meeting with Jasmin today, all I would say for now is to keep an eye on Jasmin’s news and updates as better explanations should be coming soon. Hopefully soon the warnings will have better explanations to make it more clear what violation is happening and how to fix it. I will also update information here as Jasmin releases it.
*** MORE UPDATES 3/21 ***
Here is more feedback from Jasmin models are getting which continues to show a lack of clarification of the rules and the major contradictions in interpretation and execution of the rules among Jasmin admin. Again, all that models are asking for is consistency and communication of what is and isn’t allowed on camera so everyone is on the same page.
This is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT because the consequences to these contradictory violations is a suspension that will last until at least the end of the month. Only then will it be investigated and potentially lifted, which means models will have no opportunity to earn on Jasmin during that time.
