Xbox Enforcement United is the new program being tested by Microsoft in an attempt to help police the realm of Xbox Live.
The program, which is now in beta, will allow Xbox Live Gold members to report whether or not Xbox Live users violate the Xbox code of conduct. Gamertags are most often cited as being the biggest source of racist/offensive invective. The new program hopes that Gold members will be able to curb these infractions.
"Members who join the Enforcement United beta will participate by providing their opinions on whether particular content, initially Gamertags, violate the Xbox Live Code of Conduct," Microsoft reports.
"These decisions from participants feed into an algorithm our team developed. That algorithm takes several factors into account like how many participants believe there had been a violation and how reliably those individual members' historical decisions aligned with the general consensus."
After which, the algorithim decides if the user being flagged needs to change his Gamertag. This program is a seperate attempt by Microsoft to police their online neighborhood. A second, different matchmaking program has been proposed for the Xbox One, which would seperate troublesome players from the rest of the community.
Care to get in on the ground floor of Enforcement United can get in right here.
