Account Migration Petition (Please Read)

Hey, this is just a thread to try and get Microsoft's attention...
We really need Account Migration back because it is really annoying  that I cannot make purchases on the Marketplace and also, I don't have access to Indie Games which is what most of my friends play...
My country is Ireland but I recently moved to the UK, Now I cant change it... I've been told I can't change it even if I contact Microsoft directly...
Microsoft, please, bring back Account Migration because I do not want to have to make a new account just to purchase things on Marketplace. I have so much stuff on my account that I do not want to lose...
Please Please Please bring back the Migration option as getting rid of it was a bad decision...
Please and Thank You 

Also, if anyone knows how to start an official petition, it would be very much appreciated if you could start one and I have a lot of people that are willing to sign it

You may start a wishlist in the general discussions but petitions are not allowed on forums

Also you are petitioning the wrong group

The government is the people who set content laws which is why most content providers cannot migrate accounts

It's because of licensing issues. If you were to migrate your account it would also affect all of your content licenses. Licenses are different in different regions because of the rules and regulations of that country.

So, even if I was willing to lose all DLC, all purchased games on Marketplace, there's still NO WAY to EVER change my location?

Not at the moment anyway. Even when the region migration tool was available, the UK was not one of the available countries. Things could always change in the future.

pretty much

when the account migration tool was available you forfeit all licenses

it was mostly because the content are region specific and wouldn't be available in the new region therefore you would have to purchase the local version

this is why most services have you create an new account

since the old account would still have access to the old content and the new account would have the new content

because of licenses and distibution rights there is no way to have universal access to content

people already have issues selecting the correct language for their region and dlc despite having descriptions

you will never have migration without forfeiture of licenses

it was limited to new regions because it was never meant for wide spread use 100k users who move would have an issue when they lose all their content everytime they move thats alot of headaches also it was not meant for people moving but for people who lied about their location in those regions
