    Gamertag not available

    I think its a fault with the site. When I try to claim in when it says that it is available, it doesnt actually do anything, so its probably really taken and just having an issue on the site.

    I prob should have specified better. The tag I was trying to change to was 'Fight Scars' ... when I search for it, logged in as my original tag (this one), it tells me its available and gives me the option to claim it. When I log into the new tag and check
    the same availability, its telling me that its taken. Im not sure why it would tell me its available on one tag, but not another.

    That's not an official website if you read the details below it says right on the page cohesive networks

    The only official way to check for a name is to change your names.and if it accepts or not

    Searching for a name like swmutches mentioned only checks for that one combination not included spaces or case

    Which xbox doesn't differenitiates

    Actually i was told by an xbox worker that the site i used is legit and it is the website they use themselves so you are wrong there. I was also told by the same worker that gamertags do get recycled after not being in use for several years.
