Following on to the discussion in the product meetup, what do you want out of access control on your experiences?
Control of the users camera, prevent camming, eject user, restructure their UI for the experience, force special clothing, force sit, position of avatar control, basically everything that would be required to make a viable game.
ability to disable voice, except maybe for a voice volume area. like a stage
When we do get blacklists, I would like to have more granularity than we have in SL. Here are some things I really would like:
- An automatic timeout period (1hr, 1d, 1week, forever, etc.)
- A warning instead of a ban (notify admins and target upon arrival)
- A brief (optional) reason for a ban (e.g., "abusive language")
- Extended plain-text notes about the "case"
These are motivated by my observation that in SL, the simple binary nature of bans makes it easy to make flippant and cruel tyrants out of owners and administrators of popular venues. And makes it difficult for victims of misunderstandings and bad governance to clear things up or repent.
On a related note, I know this is a low priority, all things considered, but I really do want to have public profiles and private notes like we're used to in SL. I make religious use of private notes to keep track of when I first met someone and accumulate details about their lives that help me remember who they are. I have a very bad memory for these sorts of things. Profiles are a lifeline for me.
One reason I bring this up here is that private notes are also a handy way to help deal with security risks.
