DTOX is an interactive experience exploring toxicity in online gaming. Specifically, we will look at ideas about current and potential moderation practices as well as dispel popular misconceptions about disruptive behavior online. Attendees will play the part of moderators in fictional gaming communities, using their phones as an interface to address issues in the space and dole out punishment as they see fit. After playing through the experience, there will be time for discussion.
