• Events must have the exact local location, belonging to the city or town where it will take place.
Example: It is not allowed to create an event in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, and the location of the event is in Querétaro.
• Repeated posting of events is not allowed; the events with the same name, date, time and place, will be withdrawn and their creator will be reprimanded to avoid repeating the offense.

When publishing events, it is vitally important for the creator to know how to differentiate between what is considered an event and what is not:

Examples of Events:

#1

Title: Soccer Match, Titans Vs. Jaguares
Date: May 18, 2021
Time: 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Place: University Stadium of Granada, Av. Universidad

Tags: #futbolpartido #familiar event #football #universitystatus #sport #titans #jaguares #encuentrodeportivo
Description: Enjoy a soccer match between the two teams from the University of Granada, a family event for all ages, bring children and your friends, pets are allowed.

The previous example denotes an event open to the general public, whether paid or free, it should be considered that an event is NOT an activity that is only directed to a group of selected people.

#two

Title: Musical Clinic, The Modern Figure of Jazz
Date: January 23, 2021

Description: Do not miss the musical clinic on the Jazz genre, taught by maestro Jaime Benavides. An event aimed at jazz musicians and specialists, producers and musicologists.

The previous example indicates that the public to which the activity is directed is specific, but it is not a closed or private event.

Examples of activities that are NOT events:

#1

The previous example is not an event, because it is an activity that is repeated without an end date, there are recurring events such as workshops and courses, made up of two or more sessions, having a start date and an end date.

For the publication of classes, workshops, practices, presentations, trainings and other continuous activities without an end date, we recommend the creation of an official page that invites these activities, using tags such as: #classes #work #course #training #teaching # practice, among others.

Lokkal reserves the right to refuse, restrict, eliminate, prevent the publication of any content whatsoever. This includes, but is not limited to, photos, videos, texts, comments, posts, event, profiles, pages, map listings... that Lokkal considers inappropriate.
