1. A SOCIAL SITE
myBad Studios will eventually become a social site but unlike other sites, the myBad Studios Social System (WUSS) will be focussed on creating a closed community. New members can sign up at any time and members will be able to send out invites via email or to users directly in order to link them to their friends list but WUSS will work according to a one-strike system.
1.1 The One-Strike System
This means that when a person sends you an invite and you:
A. Fail to accept / leave it pending: That person’s standing invite will result in that person no longer being able to send you follow up invite request or even finding you in search results.
B. Accept the invite: The person will be a part of your friends list along with all the perks that comes with it.
C. Decline the invite: Neither you nor that person will be able to find the other in search results or be able to send any communications to one another. This includes future friend requests. If one party indicates they don’t want to have contact with a specified party then both parties are denied all contact with each other until the person who blacklisted the other removes that person from their blacklist. One strike, that’s it: No follow up friend requests, no reminders.
The premise is simply this:
If you send someone an invite then the invite will remain in effect until it is accepted or rejected. Thus there is no reason to keep spamming a person with friend requests. Also, if a person says they don’t want to be friends with someone then both parties should be completely invisible to one another with absolutely no lines of communication available in either direction. The only exception is when they bump into one another inside a public area like an MMO or VR application and so forth. Even so, communications between you and people in your black list will be blocked.
2. PERSONAL INFORMATION USE
All data collected about you will be submitted by you and can be removed at any time. All personal information stored on this site will be used for the purpose of running this site and no other purposes. NO INFORMATION WILL EVER BE SOLD TO ANY THIRD PARTY and myBad Studios will do everything reasonable within their power to prevent your info from being made available outside the scope of your consent. Just to emphasise this clearly: You will be able to make blog posts similar to sites like Facebook but your posts will be hidden from everyone unless you give them access to it. Whatever you post doesn’t automatically become public domain, it remains your choice who you give access to your posts. (Just as an example)
2.1 Scope of consent
WUSS will eventually allow you to store a large amount of personal info on the system but will let you allocate a Scope Of Consent (SOC) value to each piece of info you store on the site. Every person you accept into your friends circles will be assigned a SOC level and will only have access to the data you allow them access to. Each higher level of SOC you assign a member automatically includes all the items at lower SOC levels.
2.1.1 Example uses
A. People you form alliances with inside of games but don’t want to interact with socially can be assigned a public SOC which allows them to only see the info you made publicly available.
B. Friends, on the other hand can be granted access to PM services and see your blog posts
C. Family can be shown your contact numbers and email
D. Elite SOC members can have access to your private online diary and stored pictures etc.
A. All users will have a username and a numeric account id created when they created their account. This info will always be publicly available as a means of finding users on the site.
B. All users are required to maintain a valid email address at all times since that is how the public Gravatar for the account is fetched (and how you request password resets) but even though a valid email is required at all times, it will not be publicly visible outside the scope of the SOC level you assigned it to.
C. All users are required to enter their true first and last name which will also be public along with the date when they signed up.
D. What assets and games you bought
E. Any high scores you earned in games made by myBad Studios
F. Reviews and ratings
G. If requested by law enforcement or the courts as it pertains to an investigation, any and all requested information will be provided to them. Essentially they will be given the highest level of SOC and added to your friends list.
3. PLAINLY PUT SUMMARY
The site’s goal is to bring gamers together and to enable them to have fun together. It is up to each individual user to decide how much personal information they make available and to who. Because this is something that needs to be done responsibly we do require that people who create an account on this site be of legal age in their country to be able to do so and take responsibility for their actions on this site. The purpose of gathering information about users on this site is solely for the promotion of the site (i.e. showing your trophies to other players to entice them to also gain the same) and to allow you to safely interact with other players. This is why we will strive to enable you to HIDE as much info as you want, rather than us trying to push your info onto other people (like automatic and mandatory friends of friends lists being displayed on your profile or lists of people in your area or who went to your school or anything like that). Our goal is not to gather info for the purpose of making a profit off of it in any way or to show your info to as many people as we can or to help people build their friends list to extreme levels by always having someone we recommend they try and add to their list. That simply isn’t what we are about. Our goal is solely to maximise your enjoyment of the site and our products.
