    It`s really hard to find a gamertag that someone hasn`t already taken without adding numbers to the end. In the end I went for "The Innocent X". Look forward to seeing you on live in december!

    MODS - Can we have html enabled on the signature so we can put our gamercards in it. I think that would be so cool.

    I know where you're coming from Cowden, but like Jay says, large pics in the sig are annoying. It'd have to be a forum wide thing too, and I just don't see it happening. The Gamercards are 204x140 - just too big I reckon. A link to your page would be good enough, no?

    It'd be better if they could just do a wide, thin strip, with the same info on, that would work really well in forum sigs...

    right click on desktop go to > Desktop then customise desktop then click the web tab> then select new and type this > http://gamercard.xbox.com/DCI BURNSIDE.card (buit obviously put your gamertag in instead of mine the %20 is a space) and if it asks you to synchronise say yes then click ok then apply.

    I guess you'd want to display them to show if they're online, if so which game they're playing at the moment or if not online when they last were. And when the 360 comes out it shows which games they've played recently and what their gamerscore is at the moment.

    Can you put on a personal picture yet? The choice is a bit limited.

    This is class! Love the friends list bit and have just put the gamercard on my Desktop.

    Pooon -

    Right click on Desktop
    Click Properties
    Click the mystical Desktop TAB
    Click Customise Desktop
    Click WEB tab
    Click new
    Input http://gamercard.xbox.com/PooonTang.card
    Click OK
    Click Synchronize
    You then have it on your desktop!


    EDIT - it definately needs the ability to add custom pics so that I can stick my lovely Cas Tigers logo in there.

    No, you won't ever be able to upload a pic MS has said, due to obvious reasons. The choice of pics will greatly expand as games get released however, as many games have associated tiles.

    Oh I understand why you're confused now - there's no point just putting your own up, put all your mates up from your Friends list to see what their current status is!

    The xbox site I frequent has just started to allow your Gamercard as a sig.
    Take a look

    The plan though is to eventually have the Gamercard under your avatar which I think looks better.

    That's pathetic IMO. Why don't they just have a pic moderating service where someone looks over the pics to make sure that they are not offensive? :rolleyes: Typical MS, trying to control what we do - so much for putting us at the centre of our gaming experience :rolleyes: . I can chose from a range of stupid cartoon characters, a football, a FF style char, some 360 circles and that's about it. Even if they do increase the amount you can have you can't truly personalise it.

    EDIT

    I personally like the gamertag in the sig. I'm mail Stuart and see if we can have it. :smashin:

    True - they could have feedback like "Offensive gamertile" or whatever I guess, but then as soon as MS ask them to change it, they'd just change it right back again after. Too hard to control with 2 million users+

    They just have to make it that your pic has to go through them to be posted. It may take a few days but at the moment we're stuck with normal pics anyway so it would be an improvement even if there was a wait whilst they were checked and posted.

    Indeed the Gamercard has now been located under the avatars.

    Looks great.
