    Gamertag change - wording misleading - " will be available to others"


    This is misleading - if I change my gamertag, it never becomes available for others. A variation of it, perhaps, but not that gamertag.

    Suggest that a) the message is made more clear and

    b) gamertags can be recycled.

    Else everyone will end up as "john 292374937592749"

    :)

    What is so important with Gamertag? Adopt and overcome. And change is good from time to time!

    Eventually inactive Gamertag are released and become available once again. But I do agree that transparency is always welcome.

    I think it is very clear and the gamertags can be recycled.
