Microsoft has announced the Xbox Enforcement United programme, joining the platform holder's previously revealed Smart Match and Reputation systems coming to Xbox Live. Xbox Live Gold members can provide feedback on users who violate the Xbox Live code of conduct, aiming to give a "sense of ownership" on Xbox Live.
"For those unfamiliar with our Xbox Live Policy and Enforcement Team, we are a dedicated team of agents who work closely with you, the community, to identify and resolve issues that negatively impact your experience on Xbox Live," reads the press release on Xbox Wire.
"We process every complaint we receive – thousands a day – and many of them require relatively simple judgment calls like whether a Gamertag or profile content abides by the Xbox Live Code of Conduct. That’s where the Enforcement United beta program comes in. We love that our community is smart and engaged, and we want to harness that talent to give you a sense of ownership on the service.
"We have built in a series of carefully designed controls so no individual participant can wield unchecked power over another. The system will also continually calibrate itself to understand how reliable the data is and the sources it comes from."
The beta of the community feature that's been tentatively titled Xbox Enforcement United is open for registration via this link, so if you fancy providing your opinions and feedback on the Xbox Live code of conduct, such as whether certain content and Gamertags are appropriate, you can get involved. It's hoped the programme will help "positively shape your Xbox Live experience. This sounds like a good thing.
