LBP is a game that is supposedly suitable for players of all ages. However, moderation of the community is in decline, bullying, harassment and other undesireable behavior is on the rise and individual players (or their parents) lack the tools to protect themselves (or their children) from harm. The call for these features have been strong and frequent. Below is a proposed outline for such features.
Either LBP incorporates its own feature to block other players or it uses the blocked players data that is present in the PS3's PSN tools. The goal is to allow individual players to a) not having to be exposed to undesirable behavior of another individual player - or that player altogether, or b) limit the offending players movements within the domain of the offended player. Or both.
In case of limiting exposure to an offending player, the offended player may "block" the other player and consequently can no longer:
- write comments or reviews on offending player's profile or levels
- see offending player's comments and reviews, anywhere
- play offending player's levels
- see any activity of offending player in their own or in other players' timeline
- see any activity of other players in offending player's levels in any timeline
- join sessions in which offending player is present
In case of limiting an offending player's movements within offended player's domain, the offending player can no longer:
- write comments or reviews on offended player's profile or levels
- see offended player's comments and reviews, anywhere
- play offended player's levels
- see any activity of offended player in their own or in other players' timeline
- see any activity of other players in offended player's levels in any timeline
- join sessions in which offended player is present
Measures outlined above would extend beyond the game into official websites like LBP.me.
