Im curious to see what the rest of the xbox forum users do.  I dont read anything other than the xbox platform forum and I wondered who else feels that the rest of the forum is 90% useless because we dont have it yet or is specifically for the PC version so I dont bother reading it.  I did when I first bought minecraft but found it frustrating to see stuff I couldnt do or use yet so stopped looking at the rest.

A fairly small portion of this forum is dedicated to the PC version, you should look through the sub-forums again. I'm around here most of the time, every once in awhile I go to the "Redstone", "Culture, Media & Arts", "Science, Computers & Technology" or "General Gaming" sections.

I only use this section, I hate sub-forums and this site is particularly horrible to use on mobile, which discourages forum jumping even further.

There was a fantastic redstone tutorial in one of the other areas that I did use at the very start though, very well done post the guy made. Pretty sure it's a sticky thread.

After being chased out of the other subforums, I'm pretty much only here. I've found the PC guys can be a bit harsh to try and talk to since a lot of them seem to be of the opinion that we Xbox minecrafters are somehow lesser creatures, or something like that. I've also learned not to bother posting suggestions in their thread as all you're met with is the usual 'OMG there's a mod for that', crap.
(Yeah, I know anything can be accomplished with a mod, but modding adds bulk to the games which also tends to cause glitches and bog the system down, whereas if these things were regular features of the game Mojang or 4J would have the bugs worked out while still preserving speed and smoothness of gameplay. Modding isn't always the answer!)

Given our track record, I was actually rather surprised to find that Xbox users are more friendly than the PC guys! Though, i suppose Live isn't all that bad as long as you avoid shooting games.

Preachin to the choir i see alot of these people in this section of the forum picking apart suggestions for the xbox version even though they have the pc version as well at least on here they can't use their go to "their is a mod for that crap" cause we wouldn't be asking for this stuff if we had the pc version i'd like to have the pc version but we don't have regular internet at our house only smart phones we live in the sticks

My brother got minecraft by dling it at a friends house and i update it via a third party website since for some stupid reason xbox doesn't let you update your games from their website but you can update your dashboard which makes no sense

For those of you interested in updating games without live heres links

I've looked in the creations part before, not sure if that is xbox or PC though. Mainly I just stick in the Xbox forum, as it's the part that applies to me tbh.

Oh, and the wiki, at the top of the forum page, but I don't know if you'd class that as part of the forums.

I'm fairly sure I have a post in almost every section (even Servers and Other Platforms, both of which I've never had any interest in) but mostly hang around Minecraft Discussion, Off Topic and this subforum.

I avoid the frozen wastes of the North, and mainly inhabit Forum Games now. There was a time when I used the chat thread a lot, but now it just goes too fast fr me to keep up.

I guess I primarily am on the xbox section of the forums... I do go into the creative sub in xbox as well from time to time to check out what others have built... But usually I am on the main page of xbox...

My First World, always getting back to is a pleasure I enjoy with each new update that brings in more things to add in.

I spend most of my time on the Xbox side of the tracks, but I do hop over to the PC side for some redstone research, or to check out an upcoming feature we're getting.
