    Yes, except for illegal activity such as “peer to peer” file sharing of copyrighted material. 
  • What is defined as “Local”? why do you have a “no locals” policy?
     “New Orleans” is generally defined as any area within a 30-mile radius of our Mid-City location, or any place that has given you a reason to say to others that you are from New Orleans, when describing where you live.

    If you have lived in the New Orleans and the surrounding area within the past 12 months or have lived in the area for a period of 3 months or more (students with ID excluded) with the intention to establish residency, you are a local. “Lived” is defined as a user of regional power/water services.
     If you are still holding an out-of-state ID or  license from another state past the legal 30 days, you are  not a traveler. http://www.dmv.org/la-louisiana/change-address.phpLocations such as Baton Rouge, Slidell, and Covington Louisiana are for the most part, not viewed as “local”.Why?  We are geared toward being a “travelers” or “vacationers” facility., where travelers can share information about other countries, cultures, travel routes, transportation, lodging, etc. We hope thereby to  enrich the social experience of travelers who stay with us. 

    Exceptions include all active, enlisted, or returning members of any branch of the armed service.

    Exceptions may also include visitors who are returning to New Orleans for a special event, such as a wedding, family reunion, graduation, etc–for which all attendees would like to stay together.
