  1. Xbox Gamertag System is Flawed in my Opinion


    There are a multitude of accounts on xbox that have near zero or literally zero gamerscore, indicating a state of inactivity. These accounts sometimes have certain gamertags that individuals want to switch to, but Microsoft would rather protect an inactive account than assist a customer who actively supports their system and products. Why is this the case?

    The gamertag system is flawed. The current system allows any third party who happened to grab a gamertag first (regardless of which generation xbox system they were on) and essentially camp it until someone wants it. Then when someone wants it, the owner is allowed to charge an absurd amount of money and sell the account right under Microsoft's noses.

    Inactive accounts should not be allowed to do this. If an account is inactive, there should be a system to request a name change that a team can then review to see if it is truly inactive. If it is, then the gamertag can be force changed so that the active member of the community can utilize it. The force change system already exists since Microsoft uses it to change offensive gamertags ( i.e. gamertags containing profanity) so it is definitely possible to apply a similar system towards inactive accounts with a simple extra step of an account review team to process the request.

    This is my first time on this subreddit, but I am hoping someone sees this and that change can be made. Thank you for your time.

    Well, I am sorry you feel that way TnK, I really am.

    Not only were my posts decidedly less rage-filled than your average post on this board, but it would seem that you have taken offence to my Signature criticism.

    I can't apologize for you thinking the opposite, nor can I see the 'flaws' in y opinion. A 'flawed opinion' would kinda suggest that I have some sort of personal beef with MS leading to my needlessly taking it out on there poor-looking signatures, which I can
    assure you is not the case. Suggesting my opinion is 'flawed' for simply disagreeing with you is just idiotic.

    And I don't seem to remember ever letting on that I have no idea what a 'Tatami mat' is? Is it because I abbreviate your Gamertag? Well, I know what they are ever since I used to play that 'CokeZone' online game in my early teens. The things were basically
    currency.

    Thanks for your concern though TnK, take it easy.

    [/quote]Hmm, I never said your opinion was flawed, I said that the flaws are your opinion, Perhaps the context wasn't clearly presented. I was saying that what you see as flaws are your opinion, Others don't see it them as flaws, referring to the VIP Signature,
    not your opinion as flawed.

    I find no flaw with the rating system. It's all based on player opinion. If I like the game I rate 5* . If not I give 3 or less. Simple. I'm not sure what flaw you refer to

    In my opinion, every game has its beauty and it's flaw.

    While I can't prove this, I've heard of publishers paying people to rate products higher. Assuming that's true, that would make it a flawed system.

    Well that is an opinion, entirely flawed and misguided - but its an opinion.
