  1. How to stop spam? Users with 0 Gamerscore are not allowed to send messages on Xbox One

    Lately Xbox users receiveing too many SPAM, like "WIN iPad, iPhone, Xbox, etc.. go to this URL to win blaah blaah".

    This is kind of annoying now. Because you can REPORT about these spammers, and block them. But next week they make new user and start spamming again. It's almost impossible to block them, but Microsoft can make these spammers life harder.

    One very simple solution how to do that is adding new rule, that everyone who have gamerscore 0 or less than 500 can not send messages. And with gamerscore less than 1000 they can not add links/URLS in…

  3. Mark whether a message has been viewed by its recipient

    When we send someone a message, and they haven't read it yet, let us know by putting a RED mark on it. And when they do read it, let us know by putting a GREEN mark on it.

    And I be sharing clips with friends, and I be wondering if they have seen it yet. Y'all can let us know by putting a RED mark if they haven't seen it; and putting a GREEN mark if they have seen it. I don't like sending them a message the next day, asking "Have you saw my video yet?" Y'all can let…

  5. Expand the 'Message' function

    It would be cool if you could also send a 'Gaming session' proposal to friends, where you suggest date(s) for meeting online to play.

    The proposal should include fields like:
    - Headline
    - Recipients
    - Proposed date
    - Game to play
    - Comments field

    When the proposal has been send, recipients can choose accept, tentative or decline.
    Recipients should also be able to propose an alternative date and/or add a comment.

    All involved parties should be able to see who has accepted, declined etc and see all comments and any alternative proposed dates.

    Reason for idea: Having kids/family and a…

  6. Set Reminders for Community Calendar Events

    Make it so if people are playing a video game or doing something else they get a notification from the event they scheduled on the calendar

    [Mod edit: Title changed from "Make an Xbox One Calendar that shows event notifications" to reflect the fact that this idea can now apply specifically to the newly implemented Community Calendar.]

  13. "Appear Offline" toggle available in Turn Off Menu.

    "What do you want to turn off?" menu, after holding the Xbox button, could display "Appear Offline/Online" toggle selection.

  16. Ability to Invite Someone to Your Game When their Message Is Highlighted in the 'Messages' Tab

    Halo streamers often run 'subscriber games', in which they play with individuals who are subscribed to their Twitch channel. This means they always have to spend an entire night sending out dozens and dozens of game invites ('Invite to Game'), whenever they wish to invite a new group of players.

    These streamers use their Xbox messages as a queue for subscribers to get invited to these custom games. They see a message, hover over it, press A to see the message, click on 'More' to get a menu, then go to 'View profile', and finally, 'Invite to a game'.

  17. Ability to send a message to ALL friends at ONCE, instead of 32 friends at a time.

    I like to inform my friends on certain things like, Games With Gold, or what was added with a recent game/xbox update. It's hard to do that when you can only send a message to 32 people at a time.

    - Make it so when I'm done typing my message I have the option to choose "Send to ALL FRIENDS."

  18. Request Hyperlinks in messages

    I'd like to be able to send hyperlinks in messages which can lead friends directly to items of interest.

    Hyperlinked messages should be able to Trigger/Launch Xbox One apps opening directly to target items within the app(s)
