Kake's abilities are hard to categorize, hard to label. He would be seen as someone with ADHD if he wasn't so prodigious. Thank you for covering this one-of-a-kind artist.
His first language is French, and he has been kind enough to help me learn to speak better. Witness how well he spoke in English here.
Spend time with his Flickr stream and become acquainted with one of the most original and creative beings in SL.

Thanks for this article, Cajsa.

I love Kake, he is a very nice person and the best avatar artist I ever met in my 10 years of Second Life experience. The best he ever made is the Greek guard. I also like his avatar with shoes made by holy books. You can love it or hate it.

Dear Kake Broek,
This email is notification that Linden Lab has terminated your access to the Second Life virtual world due to severe or repeated violations of the Second Life Terms and Conditions (available at https://www.lindenlab.com/legal/second-life-terms-and-conditions), Linden Lab Terms of Service (available at https://www.lindenlab.com/tos), or related policy. Your account has been permanently disabled. Depending on the nature of the recorded violations, additional alternate or household accounts may also have been disabled. Per the Terms of Service, you may not return to Second Life on any account, new or existing.
Violation: Terms and Conditions: Misrepresentation as Linden

Falsely identifying oneself as being a Linden Lab employee, a representative of Linden Lab, an official Mentor volunteer for Second Life or otherwise claiming or acting as if you are in position of authority within Second Life is a violation of the Second Life Terms and Conditions.

The decision to terminate your Second Life access was reached after investigating your use of the Second Life software and service. If you would like to appeal your termination, you may contact Second Life Support by opening a new support ticket with a subject of "abuse appeal".

Please provide relevant information that you believe would clarify the above violation. Linden Lab reserves sole discretion in determining whether to take any action on an appeal..../...

There is a new comment on your ticket. You can view your ticket by visiting https://lindenlab.freshdesk.com/helpdesk/tickets/1205034

Ticket comment
Dakota Linden –
Hello Kake Broek,

Thank you for contacting us regarding this issue. Linden Lab has reviewed your appeal of our decision to permanently terminate your Second Life access.

The original decision to terminate your Second Life access was reached after investigation of your use of the Second Life software and service. Upon further examination of your case, we have determined that the permanent closure of your accounts was justified and correctly applied.

The evidence shows that you have severely or repeatedly violated the Second Life Terms of Service or Community Standards, and therefore your account and any alternate Second Life accounts are now permanently inaccessible.

This concludes our investigation of your appeal. Please consider the matter resolved, as no further communications on this matter will be sent.


Account Specialist
Linden Lab


Hello Kake,

These accounts were terminated for Terms of Use and Community Guideline violations and will not be restored. You are no longer permitted to access or use SmugMug services, which includes SmugMug.com as well as Flickr.com. Attempts to create new accounts on either of these services will be deleted as well.

We're not at liberty to discuss the specifics of accounts closed for violations, but please see https://www.flickr.com/help/terms and https://www.flickr.com/help/guidelines/ for more information.
