If you’re a gamer, you may have experienced toxicity in one form or another both on and off the console. Xbox is laser-focused on improving these experiences and is committed to making Xbox a safe and fun place for all gamers, at all levels.
Enter, Xbox Ambassadors.
This group is filled with positivity and gamers who, like Xbox, want it to be safe and fun for themselves, their loved ones, and their fellow gamers. Today, we’re launching a series of safety-related missions that will educate and empower Ambassadors to truly have a positive impact on the community we all know and love.
If you’ve been active in the Xbox Ambassadors program over the last few months, you’ve probably heard or seen us say, “Let’s make gaming fun for everyone.” To truly make Xbox a place where every single gamer feels welcome and has fun, the fundamental principle of safety is imperative to the Xbox experience.
“Gaming must be a safe environment. Creating community is shared work, and protecting community is essential work, so, we all carry part of the payload of community safety – game industry and gamers alike.” – Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox
Features like family settings and blocking are a couple examples of how Xbox is helping to keep all gamers safe. But, did you know simply adding friends or “liking” a post can also help keep gamers safe? By creating a positive environment on Xbox Live, we can begin to shift the toxic gaming culture to one in which everyone has fun.
If you’re ever in doubt about how you can help make Xbox a positive place, just remember the Platinum Rule—treat others how they want to be treated.
“A welcoming community is the key to a safe community, so our 150,000 Xbox Ambassadors – community leaders, stewards, and allies – will be engaged to embark on new community missions to help create an inviting and safe environment for all gamers.” – Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox
