This webinar will start by examining why defining, identifying and actioning offensive chat matters to game development. It will include tangible stats and will also provide an overview of the five layers of community protection (Community Guidelines, Classify & Filter, Player Reputation, User Reports, and Transparency Reporting) with actionable takeaways for creating internal alignment on categories and terminology, and action plans for identifying and addressing chat-related disruptive behaviors in a manner that’s sustainable and scalable.
