In related Xbox Live news, Glenn Kaleta, Director, Xbox Live Policy & Enforcement has announced a new beta program called Enforcement United. The new program lets Xbox Live members get directly involved in helping to make Xbox Live a better gaming community for everyone.

Enforcement United will tap into the smart, engaged Xbox Live community by crowdsourcing opinions on whether or not particular content, initially Gamertags, violates the Xbox Live Code of Conduct. These opinions feed into an algorithm developed by the Xbox Live Policy and Enforcement Team, and Enforcement United can determine whether to apply an enforcement action – like requiring a member to change an offensive Gamertag.  The beta program is live now and open to current Xbox Live Ambassadors who meet certain qualifying criteria with the intent to open it up to the broader community following the conclusion of the beta.
