I'm sorry if this idea has been previously suggested, but I looked in the "Previously Suggested Ideas" thread and this wasn't there.

Personally, it is a big hassle for me to constantly update my "My Achievements" feature and keep it up-to-date. Right now, I'm 2k GS behind what my actually GS is. I can't imagine how hard it would be for people with a much higher GS than me. I understand it is easy for people who 1000ed games, but some of us don't 1000 games that easily (Yes, 1000 is a verb).

My idea is that there is some programing way that x360a automatically goes to xbox.com and imports the achievements that we've gotten every so often.

If this is impossible to program, then just let me know. But we have the gamercard on the top left of our screen right now, so it seems possible.

Good idea/ Bad idea?

A little searching goes a long way

We do not have individual achievement feeds available, and doing it the way you said is:

1. Against some sort of MS terms of usage
2. EXTREMELY heavy on server load

To elaborate on Minty's detail :p

Basically, if Microsoft gave that sort of information out, it would render Xbox.com that little bit more useless ... so they don't give it out. They reserve it entirely for themselves. The only way to get it is by coding a naughty program that rips off MS lol

I have a feeling we won't be doing that anytime soon though ;)
