Microsoft launches Xbox Enforcement United program
New player-run program will crowdsource community opinion to determine if certain content violates Xbox Live Code of Conduct.
Microsoft today launched a service called Xbox Enforcement United, a program that allows users to help determine if other players are violating the Xbox Live Code of Conduct.
A beta version of the program is live now and is open only to Xbox Live Ambassadors who meet age, Gamerscore, and Xbox Live tenure requirements. Microsoft intends to open the program up to a broader community when the beta comes to a close. Gamers interested in taking part in the beta can head to the program's new website.
The Xbox Enforcement United program will crowdsource community opinion about content found on Xbox Live, beginning with Gamertags, that may be in violation of the Xbox Live Code of Conduct.
Those in the program will be asked to identify questionable content as it relates to profane words/phrases, topics or content of a sexual nature, hate speech, sensitive historic/current events, as well as various "sound alike" or "look alike" words or phrases, potentially masked by l33t speek, phonetic tricks, or multiple languages.
These opinions are then fed into an algorithm developed by Microsoft's enforcement team to determine if "enforcement action" is needed, like mandating a user change their Gamertag to something more appropriate.
More information about the Xbox Enforcement United program is available in a blog post from Xbox Live policy and enforcement team member Glenn Kaleta.
Microsoft also today gave new details on the Xbox One's reputation system that promises "no more cheats or jerks."
