Game Blacklist and Banned Game Policy

Currently, there is only a soft policy on what games can or cannot be streamed, leading to excessive force when someone streams a game Mixer has no definitive green light or red light on. The only mention of this in Mixer's Rules of Conduct are as follows:

"Disallowed Games - Games where the primary focus of the game is *** or nudity, are not allowed to be streamed on Mixer unless modded to reduce or remove the adult content."

Understandably, the list of games with adult-oriented content is long, but leaving the streamer to "guess" what is excessive or not and having to contact a CAT agent for every instance is not only time consuming and resource consuming, but inefficient and not specific enough.

I believe Mixer should outright state, on the policies page, that games rated on the ESRB as Ao are banned and also include PEGI descriptor "***" as banned, unless its ESRB equivalent rated game is allowed by Mixer. Also, create a list of known games that are banned by Mixer standards, such as Leisure Suit Larry, despite its M rating.

In instances where the game borders on such banned activity, but doesn't quite cross the line, make it known that the game is allowed as long as certain stream conditions are met (stream rating, etc.). An example of this would be the Grand Theft Auto series.

    It may not be practical to list all banned games outside of an easy target like AO rating, but certainly it might be practical to inform the streamer that a borderline case isn't allowed and they need to stop playing immediately. The streamer would be expected to stop and any protest to be taken privately offline instead of trying to embarrass the CAT agent on the spot.
