    Xbox 360 text messaging stopped working in August 2018


    I submitted a prior question with this title. Please read that and all my responses for background information.

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/xbox/forum/xba_console/xbox-360-text-messaging-stopped-working-in-august/9fea90a0-aa8f-459a-b393-add728ffadf1?tm=1548328386916&auth=1&rtAction=1550107771798

    I have newly discovered that the 360 reputation system implementation is flawed in an additional way: while I still can send text messages to friends, I cannot send voice messages to them. I get an unable to send message error as soon as I try to send the
    message. This makes no sense if I am able to send text. Someone should be assigned immediately to repair this. I did not realize this functionality until I fixed my mic and tried it.

    This scheme / design for the 360 reputation system (and likely for the other platforms too) is flawed. There is no recovery of reputation to re-enable any of the myriad of "reduced functionalities" that are imposed when one has a "reputation needs work"
    status.

    :)

    Hello cks!

    Sorry to hear that you're dealing with this issue. I would say that if you are experiencing problems on the 360, it might be best for you to rollback (uninstall and reinstall) your console updates. When you get a chance, follow the steps listed under
    Solution 7 of our page entitled
    Troubleshoot problems with an update to your Xbox 360 console
    and let us know how they helped in resolution of your issue.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Thanks for reading!
    I removed my xbox live gamer profile, and also did Solution 7 to re-apply console updates, then downloaded my xbox live gamer profile. All of these were successful, however, when I sent a single character text message of question mark to a recent player
    list member, the message, again, pretended that it was sending it, displayed no warnings or error messages, but that recipient and message did not get into the Windows 10 Xbox app list of conversations.

    I sent another message to a Friends request recipient who has not approved it. The message did not send.

    I sent another message to an existing friend and it did work. (Mod Removed)

    The problem is not my account, but some unknown, unannounced enforcement action that may have been prompted by my strong anti-hacker efforts of precisely what has been blocked--the warning of fellow Xbox game lobby members that a hacker is cheating in the
    current game, etc.

    This probably resulted when political lobbying by these hackers had a software update applied that prevented me from warning other players of hackers due to unearned "poor reputation numbers" inserted by hackers for example when they hacked 1,000 new Gold
    live memberships into existence and wanted and got retribution for me contributing to them being hit with a ban on their prior xbox live gold account by providing poor reputation input towards my account.

    This situation is super stupid since it permits hackers to continue their harmful deeds while at the same time punishing me for having gotten hackers rightfully banned from the service temporarily since they can auto generate a new Gold membership code at
    the drop of a hat, sign back on then file a complaint or reputation strike against me.

    Xbox 360 to send messages you have to have gold,
    Versions of W10 and Xbox One can send messages without gold.

    I would recommend contacting the assistance by skipping that robot.

    Hi Skinner,

    Thanks for coming back to the forums. With the way the reputation system is set up, there are many ways to either go down in reputation and also, go back up in reputation. Unfortunately, you have experienced many reports to get you down to needs work status.
    This is only one tier of the ranking system that can be overcome by staying in matches completely without leaving in middle. Also with other ways that I posted earlier. The first paragraph on the how do I page for reputation states:

    This system was designed to better your overall experience on Xbox Live by helping to improve the way that players interact with each other on the service. At its most basic, the reputation system rewards positive behavior (such as playing
    fairly and with good sportsmanship), and creates a downside for those that exhibit poor behavior (such as cursing, being disrespectful, or cheating).


    With this being said I will be locking this thread as we have given you the information on the reputation system and how it works.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    Hello Skinner,

    Thanks for coming to the forums with your issue. Understand you are having issues sending voice messages via the Xbox 360 console. When your reputation is low you can build it back up. It is hard but possible to do. You can visit the Enforcement site "how
    do I"
    section to look up reputation and how to build it back up.

    Here is a couple samples of things to do to improve it.

    1. Avoid making unsportsmanlike comments.Smack talk is an understandable part of competitive online gaming, but not all players react to smack talk in the same way. Routinely making snarky or condescending comments, regardless of whether you
      won or lost the match, will increase the likelihood of receiving negative feedback. Smack talk may be viewed as even less appropriate if the particular game or gametype that you’re playing is not intended to be competitive.

    2. Play a wide range of games and gametypes.

      If you routinely receive negative feedback due to unsportsmanlike behavior or communications in a specific game or gametype, it may become more challenging to find good matches or new players in that game title. By playing different
      games and interacting with other players in a positive and productive way, your reputation score can improve.
    These are just a couple there are more on the page.

    Hope this helps.

    Brad
    This is unsatisfactory. There is no indication of how many favorable "votes" that I must get to get back in the green.

    Plus communications WITH FRIENDS should never be CUT OFF FOR NO REAL FRIGGING REASONS as it is with voice messaging.

    I FOUND OUT ANOTHER LIMITATION.

    I cannot invite friends to a game with an open slot or two for others to join. Why is game inviting prohibited. Seems like this scheme was very extremely badly designed, poorly thought out.

    Consider my point of view as completely accurate that all of the hackers that I have gotten banned generated gold membership Live codes then submitted FALSE information especially those who accused me of hacking/cheating. Recall that they can't have proof
    of something that does not exist, yet I have uploaded proof of them cheating to YouTube. And those cheaters were allowed to continue playing for as many as 4 years without affecting their game play on Live.

    Indications are that the largest percentage of people have indicated poor conduct--a lie. The entire premise of this reputation scoring system is shameful to say the least.

    Search the internet for video origins of political correctness cultural Marxism organic

    Search the internet for videos Yuri Bezmenov: Deception Was My Job (Complete)

    1970s g. edward griffin interviews former kgb defector yuri bezmenov who explains USEFUL IDIOT.

    It seems all tech companies have hired SJW activists that were trained / indoctrinated by the USEFUL IDIOTS that Bezmenov describes. As a result, Microsoft has codified SJW stuff into their code of conduct. Leftism now thrives without any counter balancing
    of their garbola. There are numerous YouTube channels dedicated to ridiculing the SJW logic / reason, etc.

    Xbox 360 to send messages you have to have gold,
    Versions of W10 and Xbox One can send messages without gold.

    I would recommend contacting the assistance by skipping that robot.
    I said that the robot agent is the guardian to even getting to access a live chat with a real person agent. And that it never says that due to the operating hours of the contractor (very low wage very long hours poor working conditions sweat shop) to whom
    the help desk functions have been awarded, there are no live agents available to take your problem and to have me try again during such and such times, days of the week, etc.

    I am online playing games with my 360 console. The prerequisite for being able to play live games is to have what kind of level of LIVE subscription?

    Take WILD GUESS?

    I am trying to warn live game lobby member players that there is a hacker / cheater playing in the current game and the nature of his cheating. I have a 300 plus video play list on YouTube that I authored that offers proof positive that 300+ of these certain
    players are cheating, or using hack suite software, and so on for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 (mw3)

    Also, you can send messages to friends when you don't have a live gold level membership.
