Sony Responds to LittleBigPlanet Moderation Outcry, Provides Suggestions

Responding to the outcry that the moderation for user-made LittleBigPlanet (PS3) levels was getting out of hand, publisher Sony has issued a list of suggestions for creators to follow while it and developer Media Molecule improve the moderation policies:

  • Ensure that the content you share with other users is suitable for all ages - everybody has access to your level if you publish it.

  • Please respect other people's intellectual property rights. For example, don't use images, brands or logos that you're not entitled to use.

  • If you come across any content that you feel the need to report, then please do it responsibly. Hoax reports will be considered inappropriate behaviour.


Along with the list, self-proclaimed "semi-official PlayStation blog" Three Speech was informed that over 84,000 levels have been uploaded for the physics-based platformer, with less than 0.5% of those drawing user complaints that required active moderation.
