I have seen one too many topics named:

OMG HELP!
FTP Help plz!
Xbox is broken
LIFE OR DEATH!

It would be much less stressful on Scene members and helpful to the people asking for help, if you just named the topic with your actual problem.

so, if your xbox is booting to an error screen...


Bad Way:

ERROR SCREEN!

Good Way:

Xbox boots to error #

If you can't ftp...


Bad Way:

CANT CONNECT!!!11oneone


Good Way:

Xbox has no IP







Get the idea? This helps us all out being as we all are good at fixing certain issues. If we know what the topic is about before we click it, then you can get people that can fix your issue faster.


Which brings us to our second problem...

Ok, you got the right bread on your sandwich, now time for the meat

Lets say your xbox is starting up and your getting an error 13...

Bad Way:

HELP PLEASE, XBOX WONT START IT HAS GREEENSCRN WITH JAPANESE!!! grr.gif grr.gif grr.gif grr.gif grr.gif muhaha.gif muhaha.gif muhaha.gif muhaha.gif ph34r.gif ph34r.gif

Good Way:

Hi guys, recently my xbox won't start up after i removed the softmod from my 1.5 box. Instead of booting to the MS dash, I'm getting an error screen with 13 in the upper left corner.



Get the idea now, the more info you provide, the less we have to ask. Therefore, your question get's answered faster


Thanks for reading pop.gif
