Good luck, have fun
Make gaming inclusive for everyone

Video games and esports should be welcoming and inclusive to all. Diverse player communities are more fun and more competitive.

We invite you to join us in creating a gaming ecosystem that welcomes everyone and includes all, no matter their shape, size, color, gender, background, disability, or beliefs.

By taking this pledge, you promise to make a difference as a positive and inclusive citizen in your own gaming spaces.

GLHF is a promise to...
Be a good sport whether I win or lose
Know that people online are real people and my words have real impact
Set a positive example with my behavior
Speak up against discrimination, hate speech, harassment, and abuse
Show integrity by honoring the rules, my opponents, and my teammates
Stop, listen, and reassess if I’m told that my words or actions are harmful
Respect others, even if their sincere opinions are different from my own
Be the key to a better community

By signing this pledge, you vow to help make your online gaming spaces more inclusive for everyone. You have agreed to play by these seven promises and to hold other pledge-takers to the same standard. That means you will stand up, speak out, and report when you see harassment and discrimination happening in your communities.

If you see someone sporting the badge causing trouble in a stream, please file a report so that our ComfyCrew can review the situation. To ensure that AnyKey represents a universal symbol of respect and inclusion, we will permanently revoke the badge from anyone who is seen to be abusing it.

  • Discrimination, hate speech, offensive behavior, or verbal abuse related to sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, disability, physical appearance, body size, age, or religion
  • Stalking or intimidation either physically or online
  • Spamming, raiding, hijacking, or inciting disruption of streams or social media

Discrimination also includes:

  • Sharing hurtful or mean-spirited memes
  • Making casually bigoted comments or jokes (e.g. “that’s so gay”, “you play like a girl”, etc.)
  • Trash-talking in a way that focuses on someone’s personal traits instead of on their gaming skill
Keep your space comfy
