Hi, I'm having a problem uploading stuff to my fileshare on Halo reach. Every time I try to, I get a message saying
"the name of the creator of this file is not allowed on Xbox live"
Why? What's wrong with my name? I didn't think the gamertag Mr Melo Yellow was offensive. I mean its based on a fairly innocent song by Donovan except misspelled and adding Mr to the front.
I've already tried asking for help on the xbox forums but they said i need to contact 343 for help on this issue. After doing some research and getting some helpful advice from guys at 343's forum, I discovered that this isn't an issue with 343 but an issue with the bad word filter xbox live uses. From what I found, it seems that my gamertag was fine when I made it, but updates caused it to be a filtered gamertag. But because it was an old tag, I didn't have to change it. I would only get an issue with games that use the xbox live word filter e.g. Halo reach.
I've heard that this is a common issue people have been having.
Here's an example: http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/xbox_support/f/12/t/83986.aspx?PageIndex=1
Could somebody help me on this? Its really annoying not being able to use my fileshare and I don't want to have to spend 800 ms points to change my name because of this.
