I haven't been online for 3 days, and when i just got back get a message saying That iven been suspended till the 24th June, I mean wtf.
I also get an email and this is what ive been banned for.



" This email is to notify you that your Xbox LIVE account privileges have been suspended due to inappropriate content in the profile for your gamertag. The inappropriate content was discovered in the Motto, Bio, Location, Name and/or Personal Picture.

Your profile was brought to the attention of the LIVE Enforcement Team through complaints filed by other Xbox LIVE users or in the course of our operation of the service.

The LIVE Enforcement Team has reviewed the complaints and other evidence regarding this content and determined it violates the Xbox LIVE Terms of Use and/or Code of Conduct. Because this content is in violation, the LIVE Enforcement Team has deleted the content and issued a temporary suspension.
You have been sent a message in the Xbox LIVE Dashboard notifying you when your suspension will end. During this suspension, you will not be able to log into Xbox LIVE. Your Xbox LIVE privileges will be automatically reinstated at the end of your suspension period"


This aint the first time i've been suspended either, I was once playing Shadowrun and some guy called me a prick just because i wasen't that good at the game. So i told him to Fuck off, and he said something like i work for xbox and offcourse i didn't believe him. The next day i got suspended. I mean wow just fucking wow..

Has anyone else had any problems like this...

So what will posting this do? I dunno, what did you put in your profile that you think got you banned?

And clearly if you start swearing out someone and MS finds out they will ban you. I don't see why you had to even respond to the guy that insulted you.

Edit: I haven't been banned by the way. Probably because I tend to stay in party chat, woo.

What was the offensive thing that you had on your gamertag?

I got suspended for a day once, because I had "Send in a crazy Hindu" as my motto, which I now realise was offensive, but at the time it was an in-joke with my friend, over a video we watched on Youtube.

I guess the moral of the story is yellow car.

No need to call him an idiot there mate. Stop being a prick, maybe the xbox guy was right :p

However, that's a complete joke if you got banned for that as a motto and bio. Unlucky man, you'll have it back in a few days though, no worries :D

Go to Xbox.com and go to the suspension area of the forums. They now have two people working in that section of the forums who will tell you why you were suspended for. Bootblackx is one of them anyways. Just go there and they will tell you why you were suspended. Please don't be shocked when they tell you, because people go on there aksing and they tell exactly what they were suspended for. I guess people think you can't get suspended for have fuck off in your you BIO well you can. People go on there asking and the person working for Xbox will come back and say "Well your MOTTO said I like to fuck chick with rubber dingalings." So if you did have something bad in your name,bio....ect. Then that is why you got suspended for.

Just go there and ask.

The moral of the story is to never have anything that could be viewed as offensive in there.. tbh it's just your motto/bio space, what's the point of even putting anything in there anyway? There's no real reason, and bannings are always the result of the stupidity of the user.

Cursing is against the Terms of Use and/or Code of Conduct, so even in private chat it can get you suspended or banned. I find it amusing how many people don't bother to read the rules of the service they signed up for. It is essentially a VPN where everything you do can be recorded and reviewed later. Whether or not MS actually does so is another discussion, but everything CAN be. There is no such thing as "private" on Xbox Live, no freedom of speech, etc.

I havn't, but seems gay.
If that lad did work for Microsoft and got you banned for that, thats just gay.

This is considered defamatory against homosexuals, and on Xbox Live could get you suspended. Here, it just gets you an infraction. The MS employee was doing his job.

I'v been banned for the same thing before.I also don't suggest just randomly going off on people even if they do desevre it.Cuz those fucking Xbox workers are everywhere.

I suggest that you don't go randomly off on people period, especially if you want to succeed in business at some point.

So you are mad at Microsoft because your dad doesn't want to pay for you to use a service? Sounds to me like you have some issues associating cause and effect, not to mention the proper use of capitalization.

Jethrow, don't double post.

When you have an expired card on there they will continue giving you gold (assuming you have automatic renewal enabled) but not receive any money for this, and when they realise they will either bump it down to silver (like it should be) or ban you. The latter happened to my cousin and obviously to someone else in this thread. Tough luck.

so they try to take funds out, but since their isn't any in the account (lets say), its sort of like a grace period until they try to withdrawl again? Wow thats pretty stupid, i just buy the 1 year membership, no problemo

You do know children play on live? And I'm sure quite a few parents don't want their kids seeing that, and not everyone is okay with swearing. Even if its censored, people still might take offence.

And at the OP, I hope you do realise that if you annoy someone in a game, quite a few of the immature players just get all their friends to go onto your GC and just vote for any reason, just because you maybe killed them.

MS does not look at your motto unless someone asks them to do so... Someone complained, MS looked, and since you were in violation of the TOU and/or COC, you were banned. Easy enough to understand.

Issues like these need to be put into a single thread because this is probably the 20th thread regarding suspension from XBL.
What's even more disapointing is that whoever posts the thread is always "wondering" why they got suspended when clearly all they should do is think for a second about the content of their profile, bio, or motto and if they figure it out then they would save us the need to uselessly read over such a cliche issues and give the same exact responses every single time.
I find that the best way to avoid being suspended for content is to simply put the x360a site on your motto and that's it as opposed to putting arrogant and degrading phrases that will undoubtedly get you in trouble.
That's what I do and I don't have any problems.

exactly, for all those who complain, i just laugh and wish your suspensions would be alot longer than they are, i think, your year gold membership should be cancelled period. if you cant play online and act your age, and keep yourself from writing stupid shit in your motto, bio, you deserve what you get and more.

I didn't know it was illegal to tell someone to fuck off.

As for that guy that worked for microsoft, I've had mulitiple multiple messages over my time on xbox when they have claimed they work for microsoft and they have all been lying, I thought this one was going to be no different. And i'm sure other people on this website have been told by someone that they work for microsoft and they can get you suspended.

I respect your opinion but i don't think i deserved to get suspended for a week, for what i don't know. I've posted on xbox.com to find out what i've been suspended for and i will let you guys know what i got suspended for.

But it violates the XBOX Live code of conduct.

Out of curiosity, I looked up the code of conduct...

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/legal/codeOfConduct.htm

While it doesn't specifically ban profanity other than in a person's gamertag or motto, this situation could easily be interpreted as a violation of the following rules.

Don't harass, abuse, or spam other players.

Don't impersonate or harass Microsoft employees, moderators, or staff members.
