An apparently new page at the official Xbox website, dubbed “Community Standards for Xbox,” was recently unearthed by members of the ResetEra gaming forums. The page appears to be the first of its kind from a console online-gaming provider, as it translates the legalese of Microsoft’s existing “services agreement” to straight-up “l33t” speak.
The page, which has yet to see a signal-boost from Xbox representatives like Phil Spencer or Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb, goes into detail about 10 major points in Microsoft’s Services Agreement—the form you must scroll through and click “accept” on when creating any Xbox or Microsoft account. These 10 points have been rephrased slightly to better reflect an Xbox use case and are followed by examples of hypothetical activities, including smack talk.
The most notable section may be the “keep your content clean” category. In Microsoft’s official agreement, this is described as follows:
- Cox Internet now charges $15 extra for faster access to online game servers
- The Orville proves it’s one of the best sci-fi shows on TV with S2 finale
- Coding without a keystroke: The hands-free creation of a full video game
- With its latest battle, Game of Thrones solidifies its seat on TV’s VFX throne
- Id Software’s open source shooters get ported to Apple’s iOS, tvOS
