I may subjected to a different kind of scrutiny and possible harassment, if I am required to "put myself out there" with my recordings. There has to be be some sort of assurance that my videos (or screenshots of them) cannot be seen outside of the TG realm. I really am open to peer/trustworthy VERIFIED member observations and votes...but I am NOT willing to sacrifice my dignity, gamer credibility or good name, because someone wants to troll, harass and drag me through the mud.
    I'd hadn't thought about these games (Just Dance, Dance Central, etc.) being under the new "public" view system. I've got submissions on these too and admit I would not be willing to submit footage under "public review" conditions. At home, among family, is one thing with a beedy-eye pointing in the room but I have enough confidence issues without my belly-wobbles being on public display.
    I'd rather be last on every game than throw my time away chasing only one score.

    That is an excellent point that gamer "Elle" makes...about being physically seen. While the gameplay itself can be transparent, what about the gamer's personal privacy ?

    This is a little tricky on a number of fronts. I'll start with the obvious...marathon performances. Clearly these have a whole different consideration than other performances in that people eventually (depending on the duration of the performance) have to do something that is quite personal. You can easily see why a gamer wants the "performance" limited to the gameplay.

    On top of that, as is the case with all performances, it comes down to whose hand is on the controller. In a "live" performance with witnesses this tends to be a non-issue, but with streaming performances, depending on the camera angle/focus, you can envision a number of possibilities happening there.

    This is going to have to be a policy decision for Jace to discuss with his team. Clearly "transparency" needs to be discussed in terms of gameplay privacy separate from gamer privacy.

    The solution to the belly-wobbles is to continue to play "(Just Dance, Dance Central, etc.)" and I'm sure the belly will go away. :-)

    Using images from the other site says they are too large for this site.... ahem. :)

    Time Travel is an amazing thing, George!!
