Drawing the Line with Harassment in Gaming Communities
Creating and enforcing codes of conduct for gaming communities, whether at conventions, game nights, campaigns, or online is both difficult and draining. Often we are too tolerant of bad behaviors because of trying not to bully or exclude—something many were victims of in the past. The panelists will discuss what makes a good code of conduct and the perils and stresses of enforcing it. Being the bad guy to one or a few is being the good guy to many, but that doesn’t make it easier.
