How would you feel if MS did this... (Gamertag related)

Still pissed I can't have the actual TheMuffin gamertag. Dude created as a secondary account in 2005, used it once with a 48 hour gold trial for his buddy to play COD MW2 and then never touched it again. There should be a way of contacting MS and requesting an unused tag be deactivated.

I'd be happier if they'd just delete my old Xbox 1 GT, so i could change my current GT to that. Somehow, in my initial 360 Live registration, it would only accept my Xbox.com account username, and I got stuck with that. Never had the chance to recover my Xbox1 GT.

Actually, I just ran my old GT thru the checker someone posted on page 1, and it says it's available. Might be overdue for a GT change.

Might be, kind of. I mean, I didn't use the whole thing!

This. I contacted them and begged them to take my money but I guess they don't like my money.

Joke? That was a joke? Seriously?


Idk. It's more of a "meme" but it's not exactly a meme. Like the saying "Do you even lift?" is replaced with other stuff. It's pretty commonly seen on here.

Perhaps this is your first time on the Internet. Regardless, keep grasping at semantic straws.


You're using a written medium, it behooves you to learn the rules of the language you're communicating in.


Tthis is something used on the internet all the time. Where stupid fads and crap happen every week that baffle grammar nazis like yourself. It's just a stupid internet saying/meme, get over yourself. People KNOW it isn't correct, but use it because it's funny, even if on a childish level, hence the reason to use it. Again, get over yourself.

So you don't think it's wrong that I can't use the GT Magikarp, even though no one currently is using that GT?

Isn't that, like, the definition of an original GT?


It's the name of a f***ing Pokemon character, so no, it's not original at all.

Yes it is.

xXxTh3 F4l13N 4NG31xXx, however, is not. That has too many characters to be an actual GT, but you get my point.

Right. I thought it was pretty universally known (especially on this site), but I guess not >_>
