Splatoon 2 enables you to leave comments in the plaza, the game’s hub area. Many posts have been made in the last year. Unfortunately, not all of these posts are in good taste. Some user posts end up being offensive, disrespectful, and even illegal. Well, Splatoon 2 producer Hisashi Nogami recently talked about their approach to these posts with Kotaku. Here’s what Nogami said:
“We really don’t want people to use the plaza here as a way to hurt people or say hurtful things to other people or do anything considered against the law. We do have a portion of our development team that is responsible for spotting the worst offenders when it comes to comments and artwork and making sure those don’t get seen.
We know a lot of topics are something someone feels positively about and another person might feel negatively about. We don’t want to bring the hammer down too hard on everything. And so as long as something hasn’t risen to the top for the wrong reasons, something that’d be violating the rating for some reason, we try to let the system basically sort it out. We really hope that people use this system as a means of communication and celebrating the game.”
