TriXie’s Mailbag – Part 2


Here are answers to some recent emails I’ve received at xlmail@microsoft.com.
 
  • Thanks for your interest, but the Xbox Live Arcade Party sweepstakes was A YEAR AGO. The Points are gone and the pizzas have been eaten.
  • I’m sorry to hear about your lost job/sick kid/bad luck, but I don’t have any Xbox 360 Elites to hand out.
  • No thanks, I have plenty of Xbox Ambassadors right now.
  • While I appreciate that you are ‘desperate’ to get into the games industry, we hire a janitorial staff to sweep our floors. Try getting a Computer Science degree.
  • Thanks for your email. I regret I do not understand Spanish/German/French/Korean.
  • Because Europe has its own Marketing department who run their own events and contests. It’s not because we hate you.
  • No, I don’t know why Xbox Live has not launched in your country. It’s not because we hate you.
  • I agree that it’s fun to get things for free. However our stockholders would not be very happy if we gave away everything gratis.
  • I’m not recruiting Xbox Ambassadors right now.
  • No, I don’t know when Video Marketplace is coming to your country. It’s not because we hate you.
  • No, I don’t know when your favorite show is coming to Video Marketplace.
  • While I appreciate the great service that Ambassadors provide, I can not expand your friends list/give you a watermark/give you a special gamerpicture/give you a free Xbox Live subscription/get you into the Halo 3 friends and family beta/make you a star.
  • Try calling 1 800-4MY XBOX.
  • Check out www.microsoft.com/careers
  • Yeah events do tend to be in New York or Los Angeles. I can’t predict when or if there we be an event in your town. It’s not because we hate you.
  • Wow I’m so happy you added me to your Facebook/Tagged/Linked In/Whatever site. Now go away.
  • No I will not kick someone off my Friends List to add you. It’s not because I hate you.
  • I have enough Xbox Ambassadors, thanks.
  • Use the Report tool.
  • I’m sorry you had to see that. Please file bad feedback.
  • GamerchiX Ladies Night is not like Frag Doll Friday. It’s for the girls to play each other.

  1. Hilarious stuff, TriXie.  I also don’t envy your inbox.  I’m glad nothing I have ever sent you made the list, lawl.

  2. I bet "It’s not because we hate you" it’s part of your sig and you just take it out when it’s not needed.

  3. Poor Trixie, the things you do for the business. I would have a headache by now.keep up the great work!

  4. And those are probably your mailbox AUTO response…  tell us what you really want to say 🙂

  5. Hehe, that’s hilarious. I’m with Gronar, glad that nothing I’ve ever sent you has ended up on the list.
     
    Sure you guys don’t need a janitor? 😉

  6. I’m suprised you don’t get more, "will you marry me/go out with me/date me/meet me IRL" emails.
