    Handbook for Insiders [No-Official Guide]


    Hello,

    Considering the new wave of people that will join Skip Ahead, and those who are visiting for the first time the subreddit or are interested in general with the Xbox Insider Program and are planing to your the community, please let me serve you will information, tips and ideas to take the most of this experience.

    NOTE: I'm not directly or indirectly related to Microsoft or any subdivision from them, this post is for general information and is intended to provide a "user-side" point of view of the program.





    • First, The Official Xbox Insider Information.
    What is the Xbox Insider Program?


    The Xbox Insider Program allows passionate Xbox fans the opportunity to give us feedback on the latest Xbox One System updates, as well as features and games still in development on the both the Xbox One console and Windows 10 PCs. Join the Xbox Insider Program and help make work-in-progress content and features coming to Xbox even better. Tell us what you love, what you could do without, and what you want more of by completing quests, surveys, quick polls, and reporting problems directly to developers. As an Xbox Insider, you will decide your level of involvement and what content to pursue – whether it is on PC or Xbox One or focused around system updates or games. You will automatically become eligible to join more and more Insider content previews based on your interests, tenure as an Xbox Insider, Xbox Insider XP score, and activities you participate in.

    • Second, keep updated.
    News and Social Media


    If you use Twitter consider following these accounts:

    1. @XboxInsider
    2. @Workwombatman / Brad Rossetti
    3. (please let me know if there's other accounts that can be mentioned here).

    If you use Android (I don't know if iOS is compatible) you can use a RSS-feed manager to keep updated of the official blog posts and quickly find if there's a new update for the Ring you are rolled in, In my case I use the free version of Feedly for that and normal news feeds, but feel free to use (or suggest) anyone you like.

    • Third, the Insider job
    Ideas on how To Report a Problem (Bug Reporting).


    This is the main purpose of the Insider Program, being able to test and evaluate features, changes, improvements, performance and any other things you can imagine that falls into the Insider Program and other previews (like game beta invitations). Therefor, if you don't have a background on bug reporting you might find confusing or misleading how to address something you think is an issue, problem or an odd behavior experience. From my point of view, there's no wrong answers on how to make your report, but however there's some guidelines I could suggest to enable an ease of reading for our friends developers out there.

    Submitting key information is important, and more if you can explain the steps you took before the problem you are reporting so they can try to reenact it and figure out a solution, so I'll give an example with a relatively new post in this subreddit:

    From the picture you can see there's an unusual download error message, and some details of what's the problem and what's happening when the OP tries to fix it. that's the general idea of how this subreddit works, you show what you find hoping somebody else have a similar issue and try and see if they have found a solution.

    Sometimes I do it myself for stress release.

    Now, that's how the subreddit experience goes, but how do you address this problem with the Report a Problem feature of the Insider Tool you have?

    As I said there's infinite quantities of methods to report the problem, for example one simple report would be like this:

    Title


    Game not downloading

    Description:


    I tried to download "X" game from my Xbox and is giving me an error when I try to re-download it, my console shutdowns.



    As I mentioned this can be considered as a valid report as is mentioned what you did and what did happen when you tried to do something else. but lot of important details that can be used to provide more information to the developers can be added, for example if you like using this "template" style reporting method:



    Title


    [Insider Ring] / [Date] / [Main Section Affected] - Description

    Description:


    [Console Model]

    [Insider Preview release version]

    The section affected is stored in Internal or External Device? (Or if is a peripheral device).

    A brief step-by-step process (if possible to remember)

    More details than can help investigate further the problem.



    So from the previous example:



    Title


    Alpha Skip Ahead / 23.09.2019 / Store - Game not downloading

    Description:


    Xbox One X

    2004.190919-1920

    Game installation on an External HDD Seagate 8TB.

    I booted up my console, went into the Store and search for the game, I clicked on download and when the indicator reached 100% the error message show up on screen, when I pressed it to retry the download the console immediately turned off by itself, when I booted up again, I uninstalled the game and retry the same process, but same issue happened.





    Well, that's all I have for today.

    Let me know what can be improved, what can be changed, if this is a good idea for newcomers or not. any ideas to give a better formatting to the post would be appreciated as well.

    Mine craft booklet

    Hi Neil

    There are hardcover books like the official "Beginner's Handbook" here:

    www.amazon.co.uk/.../ref=sr_1_3

    Besides giving you the basic controls for all the different platforms, including the XBox 360, it also gives you the much more useful basic beginner's guide to playing "Minecraft".

    Then there's online resources like the official Minecraft Wiki:

    minecraft.gamepedia.com/Xbox_360_Edition

    Here you can simply find the information online.

    Finally, and probably the easiest and best way to learn Minecraft...

    Buy the game and PLAY the Tutorial. This tells you how everything works, explaining the controls as you go along.

    Hope that helps.

    I have a couple of questions ?

    IGN and Prima both provide Game guides you can either watch short videos of, or pay for a full Prima guide from the Xbox Live Marketplace. seeing as how both are on the Official Marketplace and Shown on the inside Xbox tab, it is safe to say that you will
    not get a ban of any sort for using them.
  6. AquarrzSudnnym Win User

    Xbox live disconnects periodically Nat type is moderate with a UPnP message

    "Fyi and a mac is not cleared with a restart "

    Well that statement disagrees with posts from Insider staff, which I suggest you search for before making unsubstantiated claims.

    I also suggest you read the Handbook before posting an answer without providing a support link to back up your claims.

    Providing links from support pages encourages investigation of issues and stops a OP trying to figure out where to find solutions.

    Just because you say it, doesn't mean it's so.

    See Ambassador site and Handbook for more details.
