“The GLHF Pledge”
glhf: (Good Luck Have Fun) 1. used among video game players to express
good will and good sportspersonship before the start of a match.
We love video games, esports, and VR because they enable us to discover new worlds, play interesting roles, meet people from across the globe, and face exciting challenges. These experiences should be open and welcoming to all.
We believe that a diverse player community makes gaming more enjoyable and competition stronger.
If you agree, we invite you to join Oculus, Intel, and AnyKey in creating a gaming ecosystem that welcomes everyone and includes all.
By taking this pledge, you promise to be an active supporter of inclusive communities in gaming, competition, and VR.
I pledge to:
- Be a good sport whether I win or lose.
- Remember that people online and in virtual spaces are still real people.
- Know that my actions and words can have real impact.
- Speak up against hate speech, harassment, abuse, and assault of any kind.
- Have integrity as a player by respecting the rules, appreciating good opponents, and being a good teammate.
- Ask and wait for clear consent when playing in VR with others.
- Stop, listen, and reassess if I’m told that my words or actions have been harmful.
Take the pledge and wear a symbol of your support! You will get an exclusive Twitch badge after you sign the pledge and connect your Twitch account. Badges are part of your Twitch identity and appear alongside your username in any channel you visit. Be sure to sign up now, because this badge will disappear at the end of 2017.
On behalf of the entire gaming and VR community, we thank you for using your words and actions to support a more fair and inclusive future for gaming.
