    How not to get banned or suspended from XBox live and other info.


    Almost every day I see a new post from someone complaining that they got banned or suspended unfairly or for reasons that weren’t their fault.

    Let’s go over some of the most common reasons, but first a couple of pertinent bits of information:

    The Xbox Terms of Use:

    https://www.xbox.com/en-US/Legal/codeofconduct

    Here’s the key part concerning Xbox Live:

    • Don’t create, share, use, or promote prohibited Content.
    • Don’t engage in illegal activity. For example, don't:
      • Threaten to physically hurt others
      • Spread lies about someone, a product, a business, or a group
      • Post a nude photo knowing the subject of the photo meant for it to be kept private
      • Extort or otherwise threaten action unless you get something you want
    • Don’t harm or harass. For example, don't:
      • Engage in self-harm
      • Encourage violence against people or animals
      • Scream at, intimidate, or bully others
      • Violate another person's privacy (e.g., share someone’s personal information like home address)
      • Fail to protect your account, devices, and personal information (e.g., lend your credentials, post your private information publicly, fail to supervise your devices)
    • Don’t harm Microsoft, Xbox Live, or another person's device. For example, don't:
      • Post links to malware
      • Interfere with another's ability to access their network or device
      • Interfere with Xbox Live
    Microsoft has no obligation to monitor the Communication Services. However, Microsoft reserves the right to review materials posted to a Communication Service and to remove any materials in its
    sole discretion. Microsoft reserves the right to terminate your access to any or all of the Communication Services at any time without notice for any reason whatsoever.


    (Gamertags and Gamerpics are held to these standards as well.)

    And here is a link to how the enforcement system works, it is from 2010 but the basic functionality is still the same today:

    Now for some of the most common reasons people give as to why they shouldn’t be penalized:

    1. They messaged me and call me trash and were rude to me first! I just responded!

    Doesn’t matter who “started it” or what they said or did to you, you took the bait and they reported you.

    Solution: Don’t respond, report and block. If you REALLY feel you must respond, don’t say anything that can be construed as foul language or a personal attack.

    2. I let my friend/sibling/grandmother/dog use my account.

    You are solely responsible for any and all activity that occurs on

    your account.

    3. The word I used has multiple meanings and I didn’t mean it in the “bad” way.

    Just stay away from words or phrases that can be taken as lewd or crude.

    4. Banning me is a violation of freedom of speech! (My personal favorite)

    Legal definition: “The right, guaranteed by the First
    Amendment
    to the U.S. Constitution, to express beliefs and ideas without unwarranted
    government restriction.


    So no, Microsoft is not violating your rights by controlling what is posted on their systems, they are a non governmental entity. Their house, their rules

    Everyone here has agreed to the terms of use, most of us will go our entire time on Xbox without ever being banned or penalized.

    So, in the end it really is as simple as:

    For example, one could enter into a game chat or party chat and be offensive as they want and Enforcement does nothing even if they're reported.
    Though if one message is sent back to that offensive individual with even something slightly rude in a certain light, they end up getting the enforcement action.
    and thus why it's best not to respond.

    As far as bots go, enforcement does not use them.

    I honestly feel as if its a little disheartening that we are actually having to remind people how to behave online. That's just a little bit messed up from the community perspective because you would think its just common sense to not act a fool...
    I guess not.

    I guess it should also go without mentioning that people need to think before they judge and report. A lot of people report things that don't actually break any rules purely because they were "slightly offended" or hurt when someone didn't perform well.
    It even says it on one of the Ambassadors quizzes to remember that everyone's groups of friends behave differently and that shouldn't jump to conclusions.

    But hey, I guess that's neither here nor there.
    Agreed.

    I assume somebody reported your picture for whatever reason. Unfortunately the Enforcement Team don't use these forums in any official capacity, so it's highly unlikely that somebody here will be able to shed light on that specific issue.

    Ok. But my gamerpic was removed and I was suspended for 1 day. I recently reread the terms of service and the code of conduct and this particular image does not break any rules. I cannot submit a review because the suspension is only one day. Any
    comment about this? I just want my harmless, non-degenerate image back.
    We here don't make policy, whoever reported the image deemed it offensive or someway in violation of the ToU and the enforcement agent agreed.

    Was it by chance possibly a copyrighted image?
