Gamecity Impulse: Gaming-Communities - competitive and caring
The third edition of Gamecity Impulse revolved all around gaming communities. Manuel Manhard from the initiative "Keinen Pixel den Faschisten" gave practial advice and shared strategies on how to foster positive and accepting gaming communities.
Competition, rage, toxicity, and memes might seem more typical of gaming communities than kindness and mutual respect. However, several Community Managers recently focused on fostering comfort and positivity among their players - and they have been convincingly successful!
In his talk, Manuel Manhard form the Initiative "Keinen Pixel den Faschisten" invited the audience to explore the diverse challenges and approaches of building friendly, helpful and accepting communities: for a better gaming experience, and even enhanced welfare beyond that.
This event was the third issue of our online event series Gamecity Impulse which deals with questions of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion with regard to the games industry and gaming culture.
