Sydney volunteers wanted for ALRC focus groups
Good news Sydney videogamers – the Australian Law Reform Commission is looking for volunteers to be used in focus group testing. If you’re an over 18 Sydneysider who’s willing to “view material which they may find offensive, confronting and disturbing” in an effort to help your fellow Aussies receive the classification system we’ve been requesting for ages, fill in the ALRC’s application form.
Direct from the ALRC:
The ALRC is conducting a review of the classification system in Australia. As part of this review, the ALRC will hold community focus groups to test the kind of content that may be permissible in higher level classification categories (MA15+ and above, including the Refused Classification category). This is a pilot project that will test a methodology for possible further assessment panels that might be held to determine community standards with regards to classification categories in the future.
