This dissertation endeavors to deeply perceive the features of Minecraft servers explicitly created for youth through three research using mixed methods research. Human-Computer Interplay (HCI) research reveals that sandbox-type digital world games like Minecraft function as curiosity-pushed spaces where youth can explore their creative interests, construct technical experience, and kind social connections with peers and near-friends. Despite their reputation amongst youth (ages 6 - 14), we know little about the social and technological options of "in-the-wild" Minecraft servers that present themselves as "child-friendly" or "household-friendly." The goals of this work are three-fold:1. To research the rhetoric of kid-/household-friendliness and the socio-technical mechanisms of such servers (Research I: 60 servers), 2. To know Urbanislovar lived experiences of server staff who reasonable on such servers (Examine II: 8 youth and 22 moderators), and 3. To discover a design paradigm for technological mechanisms that leverage the strengths of a child-/household-pleasant server group whereas also supporting moderators' practices (Examine III) I draw from interdisciplinary theories and construction this dissertation round two fundamental arguments about kid-/family-pleasant Minecraft server ecosystems. First, I argue that they're instantiations of play-based affinity networks created by adults that promote opportunities for youth to discover their interests and social connections. Second, I argue that the social and technological mechanisms reflected within the server rules and moderators' practices are characteristic of servers that self-describe as child-/family-pleasant. Study I contributes a taxonomy for understanding server rules and an empirical characterization of three server genres - child-/household-friendly (n1 = 19); basic-household-friendly (n2 = 20); and basic (n3 = 20) in Minecraft. Research II reveals moderators' motivations and socio-technical practices in kid-/family-pleasant servers. The findings show that adult moderators encourage youth-led creative roleplays, assist the pursuits of younger players (e.g., Hogwarts virtual world, digital Delight Day celebrations, and so forth.), and supply mentorship to youth moderators on their servers. Research III theorizes the potential for automated prosocial tools in play-based mostly areas via a Discord Bot referred to as "UCIProsocialBot" inside OhanaCraft, one of the kid-/household-friendly server communities. Collectively, these findings present a set of social and technological options that may substantiate a model for designing child-/family-friendly on-line playgrounds. This work theorizes that kid-/family-pleasant servers can actualize optimistic youth growth when their self-narratives, social practices, and technological mechanisms are aligned with adolescent developmental needs.
