Dear VRChat Team,
I’m Reinier, a 24-year-old student from the Netherlands. Currently, I’m enrolled in the master’s degree of Digital Business and Innovation at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. For my thesis, I’m writing about the prevalence of harassment on Social VR platforms. I think we can all agree that this is an issue that needs to be addressed, as it takes away some of the enormous potential that Social VR can have. The aim of my thesis is to construct a guideline-based framework that can help platform owners to better manage the problem of harassment. However, to make these guidelines as tailored as possible, I need your help.
More details will follow later (as I’m still in the early stages of my thesis), but for now I wanted to ask whether it’s possible to have an interview with one of the staff members in April, to discuss the issue. The interview can provide me with very useful information that I can use to make the framework a better fit!
