    I’ve seen this partially answered before, claiming my friends would have to go to their privacy settings in order to not see my LFG posts.

    But since it’s involving MY privacy, why am I not allowed to make it to where my friends cannot see the LFG post? It’s nonsensical.

    It also renders the “Offline” mode obsolete if all my friends see me wanting to play a game, regardless if they even play that game or not (they don’t in this case)

    I think Xbox needs to update their privacy settings, it shouldn’t be my friends choice whether or not they can see my activity; like I said prior that is nonsensical.

    :)

    My account has been suspended wrongly please help me.

    if you look on the group posts for rocket league tell me why I got banned compared to them… why didn’t the group post tell me I had “inappropriate content” in my post?

    Gameshare more than three times a year?

    I'm still confused as to how someone "accidentally" game shares 3 times?

    I understand the intentions of this program, but I also feel there is a big grey area there. Just going on YouTube, looking in the comments section, there is a large group of people who post their gamertags looking to game share with others just to get
    free games out of it.

    I received a ban for "Diamond casino heist after preps 20% cut" on a LFG post that was three months ago which is in no way offensive or rude, and I can't appeal this in any way :(

    Yeah that is LFG, looking for group, I was looking for a group to do a "heist" in GTA. This still doesn't justify them waiting 4 months do ban me. Im rather confused as to why you said that, this is looking for group post. Many, many people, use these for trading items, even then that would still be a form of looking for a group.
