The sexing up of the publicly viewable video games is not always a good idea. In a latest development, game streaming website Twitch has prohibited the users from being naked while broadcasting.
According to a Game Spot report, Twitch has issued the new regulation as a part of the site updation for its Rules of Conduct page.
In a post on its website, Twitch wrote: “At Twitch, our mission is to provide the best platform for live gaming content created by the community at large, wherein broadcasters and viewers can interact in real time.”
“To achieve this goal, we ask that all users participate in such a way that promotes a positive experience for our global audience,” Twitch added in its post.
The website issued the set of regulatory guidelines about the wearing of proper attire in the video games, making it clear that being naked or wearing of sexually suggestive clothing is strictly not allowed. The attires not allowed on Twitch include lingerie, undergarments swimsuits and pasties.
“Nerds are sexy and you are all beautiful and magnificent creatures but let’s try and keep this about the games, shall we?” Twitch wrote on its website while adding, “You may have a great six-pack, but that’s better shared on the beach during a two-on-two volleyball game blasting ‘Playing with the Boys’.”
A report on Techno Buffalo said that Twitch is also offering solutions to users to maintain decency if they choose to stream with their shirts off.
“If it’s unbearably hot where you are, and you happen to have your shirt off (gents) or a bikini top (ladies) then just crop the webcam to your face,” the site asked saying, “If your lighting is hot, get fluorescent bulbs to reduce the heat.”
The site also informed the users that the Twitch employees are keeping a close eye on their streaming activities. If any of the user failed to follow the set of rules listed on the Rules of Conduct page about the proper dress code, there accounts are eligible for automatic suspension.
