Sony Responds to LittleBigPlanet Moderation Outcry

Following user outcry over the moderation of user-made levels in LittleBigPlanet, Sony today responded by issuing a list of suggestions for creators to follow while it and developer Media Molecule improve moderation policies.

Authors are requested to make sure that the content created is suitable for all ages as everybody has access to the level once it’s published. Other people’s copyrights are also requested to be respected; authors are urged not to use images, brands or logos they are not entitled to use. Finally, users are asked to report inappropriate levels; hoax reports are highly discouraged.

The unofficial Sony blog Three Speech notes that over 84,000 levels have been uploaded to the game, from where less than 0.5% levels have required active moderation.
