Re: Suggestions &Amp; Recommendations

"Support Group" (TrashKen HK)
Now there should be a line between what we discuss in reaction to a problem and when we start doing the work for MS; and worse, for free. A support group should be initiated by them, supported by them and if necessary and appropriately sponsored by them.
Why should the beaten community now say thanks and go the extra mile of offering them unwanted/uninvited help? We already show enough interest and desire to help by typing our fingers bloody in this forum. It’s not us who have to fix the problems brought upon us. If the gamer community has to go in their own effort and on their own initiative beyond posting serious discussions in the official Xbox forum, then I’d call this whole Xbox (HK) thing a lost cause and move on. There’s more to life than HK Live.
It’s one thing to be beaten and accept it, it’s another thing to be beaten and fight back (at least respond to it), and it’s an entirly different thing to be beaten and then ask for more. Things will certainly not improve if we do the work, it’s not officially recognized though implemented in parts, and in the end things still end in disasters.

"Microsoft HK staffers" (R8OO | BushPir8)
What an example of incompetence. If I’d enquire about a Windows Server edition, I’d get all I want in English. Ever been to a local MS event which wasn’t about Xbox? Sure, there was no English documentation either (at least the Windows XP, Windows Vista… I went) but competent staff on hand to explain me Windows down to the core in English I thought I’d talk to an Oxford professor.
If all those from the Xbox team (or at least part-time involved) who are at risk of coming into contact with the public are either worse in English than my 4th grade student or have an attitude making WW2 games feel like Woodstock, their HR (if that’s involved in making Xbox decisions) totally fails.
Generally, from reading all the posts here, I get the idea that the HK Xbox department either is or at least is run like a hobby club. No matter how much they think they are or worse, indeed are "professionally" organised internal, who cares? It just doesn’t work out on the outside.
