Session Name:

Building Safe and Prosocial Game Platforms (Presented by Community Clubhouse)


This panel invites you to a thought-provoking discussion centered on a pivotal question: What if we integrated safety directly into game platform design, rather than addressing toxicity and abuse as afterthoughts? Our panelists, each offering distinct insights, will delve into the potential of game platforms rooted in safety-first principles. We'll explore how platforms, when equipped with features intentionally designed to prevent abuse, help in enhancing player satisfaction and boosting player retention and engagement.nnThe conversation will span various approaches to designing robust, safe systems that proactively address and prevent conflict, while establishing clear safety boundaries. Additionally, we will explore the critical role of giving players control and consent mechanisms, essential in cultivating a secure gaming environment. This session aims to shed light on the vital yet often overlooked intersection of safety, user experience, and community engagement in game design.
