Please Post In The Correct Section

If you make a topic here that belongs in a different forum, and it gets moved and merged, finding it will be your own responsibility. So please remember to post in the proper dedicated forum. An excellent example is asking if a certain TV is good for 360 gaming here, which belongs in Audio/Video Technical, such as is discussed in this example topic.


All Standard Xbox-Scene Rules are Enforced:

Like every other forum on X-S this is a moderated forum as we are all subject to the Rules and Acceptable Posting Policy. Enjoy yourselves, but please keep topics in the relevant dedicated forums as much as you possibly can.

Before Posting " Is This Update Going To Ban Me

If anything important in the issue of bannings comes up, expect to see it on the front page of Xbox-Scene.com. No matter how many times you or someone asks, you cannot stop the inevitable. If it happens it happens, if it don't it don't. Asking questions won't help you.

Please keep the the speculation and questions to this thread below:


Any new threads started about this issue will be closed. Repeat offenders expect to be punished accordingly.


These are the Xbox-Scene forums and the rules haven't changed.


Basically it's this simple:
You open your console and break the warranty seal...

Warranty is done with. End of story.

Don't believe me? Call MS and ask them (18004MYXBOX) Sure you can always try to send them your voided console hoping they won't notice, but if they do notice, which they probably would. Then you probably have to pay for return shipping. They might even make you pay for shipping both ways.

Why won't MS fix my warranty voided console?

Well here is why. You could alter or mess it up worse than it already was or break it yourself. Why should they have to pay for something you broke?

Maybe you should of done the smart thing and paid what like $40 more for a longer warranty? Maybe you should of paid that $100 something bux to get it fixed.

In other words, don't post here asking if MS will fix it. Call and find out for yourself or do what you want to do with the console.[/b]

We aren't MS and we can't answer your millions of questions about warranties! Don't like what I said above? Deal with it. Threads opened asking about warranties will be closed.

Rules About Petitions

No hosted petitions.. unless.. the poster has permission from the Admin staff. Linking to outside hosted petitions will be allowed, as long as they conform to other XS rules.
No threads inviting members to put their case against other sites/companies/etc. If you feel strongly enough to start a petition of some sort then 1 post only with a single link.
The petition must be off site

Posts About Backups. SS Files. NO PIRACY

Discussion on making A Legal Backup of a game you own (Laws in some countires vary)
Methods and Equipment used in the creation of the BackUp, including software used.
Media discussion including method and hardware used in the ripping or burning process.
All talk must be relevant to making your own backup of your own original game.

Any talk of making multiple backups from other backups (no cute excuses like , its for the neighbour/friend who legally owns the copy). If your backup is damaged re-rip the original having disposed of the damaged one. You are legally (in most places not all) allowed one back up of a game you legally own. The staff here are only too well aware of why people want to make multiple backups and its not for legal reasons so it stays away from the posts in here.
Any Talk of downloading games from the internet, newsgroups or any other illegal source. Any talk of downloading SS (copyright ) from the same. Don't spout the old crap I own the game so I can legally download. NO You can not and more to the point don't discuss downloads here, if you wish to keep your account
Files requests of any type. (Legal software can be easily found using google or other internet search engines)
Posting or requesting SS files including supplying links to sites with SS files. Security sectors are part of copyright code so don't plan on using the forums as a distribution centre for them. If you got them from the net or wherever we don't want to know on here.
Any links to lists of Warez including NFO sites.
Promoting or Endorsing Piracy


Posts Advocating Fraud

Do not make any posts advising/ advocating Fraud. Do not post advising or asking how to return goods and dishonestly attempt to obtain a warranty repair or replacement if you have voided the warranty by tampering with or opening the casing on a console. Posters asking how to get round the issue of voiding the warranty and posters offering advice on the same will lose their accounts here. If you break the seal you void the warranty.
Do not make posts about inducing problems on your machine to obtain Warranty. All such posts will be closed and your account may be removed.
Don't make posts about how to keep Warranty stickers intact with a view to enabling Warranty Fraud at a later date
If you are going to mod your box accept it has no longer got any warranty at all and do not post you work rounds, ideas, dodges or otherwise in here.

No Halo 2 Hacking/ Modding Talk

...Not that you guys would ever post such topics here anyways, but should it happen they will be closed and removed. Bans are also a potential for those who break the new rules (read them here if you haven't yet)... And unlike Bungie's "banhammer," xbox-scene's banhammer is ruthless and WILL get you if you break the rules
