Hello everyone!

 

As of today, uploads and livestreams of gameplay footage will now be permitted on Homecoming, subject to the updated Video Policy in our Code of Conduct.

 

Check out the full update below:

Quote

Video & Streaming Policy

You are permitted to upload and livestream gameplay footage from Homecoming, provided that:

  • Footage must not contain any content that violates the Code of Conduct, including (but not limited to) content that infringes any third-party copyrights, or other rules or guidelines that we may provide from time to time
  • All uploaded footage and live streams must be free to access for the viewer (however, standard monetization through platform-provided advertisements is permitted)

Any violations of these rules will result in action being taken against your account until the offending videos are taken offline. Continued violations will result in permanent action against your account and any other remedies available to us.

 

Although we allow for videos and livestreams (subject to the Code of Conduct), we cannot be held responsible for actions taken by third parties. It is your responsibility to ensure that you do not break the rules of any video platform you choose to use, or otherwise infringe upon the rights of a third party.

 

Please keep in mind that Homecoming is still working to secure official use of the City of Heroes IP. Do not upload any footage which may portray the IP or Homecoming in a negative light, or we will be forced to revisit this policy.

We’ve also put together a short video detailing some of the key dos and don’ts for creating videos and live streaming:
 

 

Note that our Video Policy, like the rest of the Code of Conduct, is subject to change. If we find that users are unable or unwilling to comply with our rules, we will be forced to revisit this policy.

 

To celebrate this change, @GM Tempest will be live-streaming our 2nd Anniversary Costume Contest on our Twitch channel this Saturday at 9pm UTC. See you there!

Does this mean I can update my videos? They aren't livestreamed...but they were still on the "do not touch" list.

It says "Uploads and livestreams."

 

Also, this'll be nice for those occasions where you want to show something, either for a bug, a suggestion, that sort of thing.

BIG ups and huge congratulations to everyone involved with this process. Hopefully this can lead to a brighter, more well-received and publically-appreciated future for Homecoming and the entire CoX setting.

I am curious, why the sudden change in policy if you still haven't obtained the IP? I thought that was the main reason for not allowing videos and streams?

Y'all should send out an email blast about this to every account. This is legit huge news that could bring back a lot of lapsed players.

Would this be a good time to advertise my stream since i can now stream Coh *lol*


Perhaps a new forum where people can share their YouTubes/Twitches/Mixers/whatever videos and streams would be advisable.

So criticism is not welcome?

Constructive criticism isn't portraying anything negative. Just stay away from behaviors that are generally unacceptable and from spreading unfounded rumors or the like.

IDK, most AAA publishers like NCSoft seem allergic to criticism.
