For anybody who is eager to jump in, don't mess up, you need to go and actually join the challenge even after you've registered. Just letting you know so somebody doesn't accidentally not join the challenge then gain the 1,500 gamerpoints as fast as they can for nothing.

I'm zone 2

Windows live ID is the thing you need to sign into xbox.com its where you enter your email address and pass word.
go to xbox.com and click sign out in the top right hand corner

I never clicked "Join Challenge" but I still get a screen displaying "Increase Gamerscore by 1,500 points."

Just retype the Web address and go back to the page. Even though I am in the challenge, I think there is still heavy traffic because my challenge page shows my info but has an error.

It shows that for me too, and I clicked it and there's a link to join the challenge. I think you actually need to join the challenge. I could be wrong but I would do it just to be safe. And about not being able to return to rewards just type in xbox.com/rewards again and go back, you'll still be signed in.

I can get it to load up, then it messes up when I click the button to join, probably just because so many people on there trying to do this at once.

So are we sure that means we can start getting points?
or do we have to join the challenge.

"Once you register and log in, take a look at the active Challenges and Rewards and pick the ones that you want to be involved in. Press the "Join Challenge" button in the Challenge Detail page to read the Challenge Rules to confirm that you meet all requirements press the "Join Challenge" button in the Challenge Detail page to get rock'n."

From the official site, what I thought before was true, you DO have to join the challenge after you register, so don't start getting points yet.

Yeah that's what I was trying to warn people about with my post, I knew there would be some people who would immediately get registered and just get the points as quick as possible, but you could try to get another 1,500, it wouldn't be impossible.

But this is VERY annoying. I really want to get 1,500 now!

Like I said, thanks for the info about how to make it work, but there is a grammatical error (punctuation maybe?) that makes it confusing!

for step #4 it should say: ON THE BOTTOM LEFT OF THE PAGE IT SAYS "REGISTER NOW", DO NOT CLICK THE WINDOWS LIVE LOGIN ON THE TOP RIGHT, JUST CLICK THE "REGISTER NOW" AND LOGIN FROM THERE!!!

So, after staying up till 2 in the morning pacific time, then sitting around all day waiting for it to become active, I signed up for the rewards program, gave them my shipping info, and got the 1500 points in less than two hours. And because they weren't clear and told me to go and get 1500 points before I clicked a fricking button I don't get jack for my effort? Absolute bullshit. :mad:

The server is messed up for sure, especially that you have to literally find the register link, and that the page never loads all the way!

Yup, the site's now working just fine for me. Unfortunately, I already got most of my gamerscore from the games I rented, which means I have to get more! NO! Grr! Oh well, maybe I'll just finish Cars and get College Hoops 2K6 and get it over with. Man, this thing is driving me nuts! :uzi:

Every page except the damn my rewards link.

And if you want a VERY quick 1000 College Hoops 2k6 is defiantly it. I played one game 20 minute half's and had every point. This is the first basketball game I have played for a LONG time. Very easy.

Thanks, and as for the prizes, it still says each prize is still 100% available. I don't get it, I think some people have finished the challenge by now, but I guess it's because the Rewards Link isn't working. At least they got the good stuff up, especially for the poor people who couldn't register.

The only thing on the site that isn't working for me now is the "Confirm Address" link for claiming my prizes. I took screenshots of every page that confirmed that I had won, including screenshots of the prizes I won. I'm getting my damned Fuzion Frenzy 2 no matter what! lol

That takes me to the registration page with your address on it which I assume is the confirmation.

Me too, the thing is is that after it tells me the registration was successful, the button to confirm my address is still there on my rewards page. :confused:

Yeah, I've confirmed my address about a hundred times, and that damn button won't go away. The site is working great now, but I can't get the address verification step done with.

This is so dumb. I go back to the site now and when i search my gamertag under find member it doesn't find me even though i signed up yesterday and it kept taking me back to the address part.

Don't worry it's saying that for me now too. It was working fine earlier, and I went to the challenge page and pushed "im finished" even though I'm not finished yet to check how many points I needed. To my surprise, instead of telling me I wasn't done and I still needed points, it congratulated me and said that I was done with the challenge. At first I thought something went wrong and I was going to get the rewards without getting the points, but I searched for my name and haven't got any rewards yet. After that it kept telling me to register even though I already had, then it went to saying that my live id needed to be associated with a gamertag. I'm hoping that I didn't screw something up by pressing I'm finished early, but since it's showing that for you too I guess it's just a problem that they're having.

This whole thing is retarded. Before, when the site was down, it told me my password was incorrect. Now it tells me that my Windows ID isn't associated with my gamertag. Please log into xbox.com for more information. If my Windows ID wasn't associated with my gamertag, I wouldn't be able to log into xbox.com either. WTF? Too bad this doesn't cost money to sign up, then everything would be be working perfectly.

that isn't going to be fixed i called 800 4 my xbox again. i was assured that everyone is currently expirencing that. Al told me that the site will be down for an undetermined amount of time but to just keep trying. He told me an hour or two but it already passed that just flood them with calls and they'll fix it sooner. he also told me that all who finish the challenge will recieve the full package, we'll see, i don't believe but it kept me calm so just remain in a holding pattern. believe me i'm pissed after taking two days to register i beat it in 48 hours and now i can't finish the challenge.

I'm still receiving the error "Your Microsoft Windows Live™ ID must be associated with a valid Xbox Live™ Gamertag to register. Login to Xbox.com for more information.". I called 1-800-4My-XBOX and they had no idea what the challenge was about. I bitched and they talked to a manager and they told me they couldn't do anything about the challenge and to E-Mail Microsoft about the issue. This challenge is a friggin joke.

Getting the same thing. I just won the award; it says I get 5 rewards.. And I can't confirm my address because it says that damn error. I think I will e-mail Xbox.com about this..

Anyways.. The website says everything will be confirmed 4/12/07.. Are you kidding me?

EDIT: Considering NO ONE has gotten ANY reward, and if you look at the reward details, they have not even given out token codes for the pics/Contra/MS Points, Microsoft is probably working on that. So I guess it's an 'error,' but Microsoft has not even given out rewards, even when lots of people already completed it. As of now, a total of at least 18,100 people have entered the challenge. I can assure you A LOT of people have already earned their 1,500.

Which means I'm probably too late, unfortunately. If MS does not give the rewards out soon, they're probably planning on sending them out on 4/12/07. And for the shirt/FF2, it takes at least 12 weeks for them to ship, so don't count on the stuff coming to your door THAT fast.

Or they're getting their shipment of shirts/FF2 games for confirmation.

Just wanted to post that the site finally worked for me and I am now entered into the challenge. One thing that really bugs me about this challenge is that they have alloted two full months but clearly have limited supplies. I wouldn't expect them to give out prizes to everybody that completed the challenge but having it last a full two months just seems ridiculous.

You need -48 gamerscore to get to level 3

does this mean that since i signed up for a challenege when i was level 2 that i cant be level 3 until im done? or is this just a glitch in microsoft's faulty sytem.
