I can pretty much understand how most of the awards are handed out but how did people obtain that one? Just tell others to come to the site?

And you have to attract poeple to the site, and in anyway help the site out by attracting others.

Someone, who keeps the site name in their motto on Xbox live Has it, Or someone with "x360a" in their name... Or people who can get this site's name on other big sites..

The powers that be will check if you nudge them to do so, and if they think you deserve the award then it shall be bestowethed upon thee.

I don't think there is anything for referring people though, but do so anyway.

yeah, i have brought numerous friends here as referrals... i don't expect any award.

***warning: corny statement coming...***

the site is reward enough. :p

but now that you mention it, it would kind of nice i suppose. ;)

It's more than just a motto, but that's a good start :)

Positive advertisement of the site is pretty much the essence of it.


Motto/Bio on Xbox Live
Signatures at relevant, big, gaming sites, and social/networking sites
Changing your tag to represent x360a, like so many people are doing ;)
Referrals (make sure to have friends enter your username when they register with us
General site promotion

Etc, etc, so long as its positive promotion of the site :)

Oh and snafe.... Care to enlighten me? :)

Well so far I've only referred friends in real life and XBL to the site.
I'll spread the word more so and include a link in my sig on Xbox.com and IGN. ;)

Actually, I did think of a name change but ScottEvilx360 doesn't look right. If anyone could come up with one that looked good I'd consider it..

What about just "Scott x360a"

How does xScottEvil360 look?

Actually that defeats the point so ignore me :(

- Guide button
- Top tab where you can view games etc.
- Edit gamer profile
- Gamertag
- If you've got points, you can change it straight away, if not, you'll need 800, which should be around 4 if I remember right.
- Type in Gamertag you want to change to.
- Confirm and it should be done.

just changed my gamertag to J Lo x360a

so thats a gamertag
a motto
a sig on another site
a blog on another site
a referral

I doubt you'll have to remake then, but if you've got it in your sig with your old GT in the IMG code, then you'll have to change that.

I was wondering if having the site in ur gamer card on your live account counts as word of mouth? If it does I have and will continue to have it in there. My gamertag is JBong6. Thanks! Love this site, use it daily and have told all my friends about it as well, I go nowhere else for my game info needs.

I just have a quick question about changing my gamertage on xbox live. If I change it, will i have to change it on this site in all of the completed games? because that would be alot of work for pandora!! Or just keep my name on this site the same and use that for the lists?? I know I will have to have it updated for the leaderboard, wasn't sure about the 1000 and 200 clubs. Thanks in advance

04-09-2007, 03:51 PM
you dont have to change it on the site...you will have to add your new GT to your profile so your gamercard shows up, but you dont have to change the site login

Well it is your decision whether to change your name in the 1000 and 200 clubs. But I did and it went like this

Old gt: lupa lupe
new gt: AceAssassin2565
I am listed under lupa lupe in
fifa rtfwc 2006
King Kong
Madden 06
NBA Street Homecourt


and same thing for the 200 clubs as to make it easier so she doesnt have to search every single thread looking for my name.

I don't mind the work :) just submit your new name I can reference your profile for the list just make sure you put your new live profile on their for me to see :) but really it is up to you how you want your name to appear whether it is your member name or GT

this award is harder to obtain then it used to be for others.. i have been an active member since Jan of 07 of this year and have used the site even before i became a member .. i even spent the 800MS points to change my tag to include the x360a, i work hard to bring guides to this site which nobody has made and i also make sigs for other members with no charge ... oh and someone took the number uno tag right after i changed it to .. so now there is a copy cat (damn shame) .. i also gave away my UNO code to a member of this site, and subcribe and send money, I also made two different userbars and put them both on userbars.org which have gotten over 70 hits between the two and which are the only userbars that i have come acroos featuring x360a.. and anyone can grab em they are there for all to take .. still no word of mouth award .. the last thing i have seen to be able to get this award now was to be a good sport when playing another memeber/mod .. for now i seem to be a kind of a stickler on this one and have put in more work then some people have who got it already .. but time tells all and someday i will have that speaker bumpin in my awards showcase .. wink wink ;)

In no way was it aimed at you, I did not mention your name in ze post and not sure where you got the idea from...

And I am sure you will, you make a very good contribution to the forums, but you seem to have taken offensive where it was not meant. Apologies ;)

Are you guys all worked up over an award?:p

You guys keep doing what you do best. Contributing to the site and helping out fellow members should be rewarding enough. So let me ask you guys...do you put x360a in your tags and refer people to the site because you want to or do you do it just for the awards?

To be honest, I did when I first joined (also because I didn't like having a "3" in place of an "E" like in my forum name, seemed a good way to go around that problem) but now I do it because I generally love the site, its always open on my browser, I mean I never actually close it, I put my laptop on standby pretty much ALL the time so when I open the lid up and click on firefox at the bottom its ready to go :p

I've had a few people over gears be like whats the site about, so I say its a cool place to find out achievements and has a good forum and tell them to check it out, god knows if they ever do but it feels nice to point them in the right direction ;)

Okay, this is sort of like the word of mouth award but I'm not begging to get it. I am simply asking if I am a valid enough member to change my tag to include x360a in it. I have been a member here for a long time and feel that I am an active member of the community. I have PM'd Minty several times asking for the go ahead but have had no response. I have played before with Shady, Covert, and David Creech. So you can ask them if you need a referrer. I am not sure if a mod can tell me it is okay to have to x360a in my tag, but if so please respond to this with a yes or no. I have had 1000 MS points on my xbox for too long. ;) Again, anyone with the power to tell me it is okay to change my gamercard I would greatly appreciate it if you gave me an answer. Thanks.

Actually...Shady, Covert, and Creech are all Staff Members. Since you've played with them in the past, I think you can just ask them yourselves. I'm sure they'll vouch for you. Just make sure to ask VERY nicely.;)

As for the Award, the Admins. hand them out.

I think bieng an active user and showing your dedication to the site buy having it in your tag and motto and telling everyone you know is enough to get it but time tells all i don't see them throwing these at people i think bieng a loyal, polite fourm user, and slighty productive member will help anyones cause .. but doing so shows more then just wanting an award it shows how much you like the site without saying so and it brings self satisfaction knowing your doing your part and helping everyone who feels like all the active members do, nuttin but sweet love for the #1 Achievements site x360a if your doing your part and bieng an active member someone will eventually notice and you'll get your come uppins soon enough .. but i guess a lil pestering helps the ball rolling sometimes .. i know it does when i want a raise at work ;)

But i have to admit the site awards are just a bonus but they do look cool on the sidebar of the posts you write up .. i can see the excitement of people not having one in getting one .. they are sweet .. it kinda reminds me of unlocking achievements .. you just gotta have em all and wanna know the best (and fastest) way to get them.

and well i've played with l3gion and pants before on sr. :)

aside from that i have referred 3 ppl tothe site so far, and x360a is in my motto.

i would put x360a in my sig of other forums, but quite frankly, i don't really use any other forums. not like this one, anyways.

plus, i plan on making a $ contribution once i sell my stuff on ebay and have a few extra bucks in my paypal. my personal merry christmas to x360a.org. (or what ever holiday that the community celebrates. lol)

if u read the previous posts. adding x360a to your gamertag/motto will not gurantee you the award. if it did then everyone and their grandma would have it.

i don't have the award but heres what i heard you should do.

1. add join Xbox360a to motto
2. tell people about the site and tell them that you reffered them
3. get permission to add X360a to your gamertag.
4. Wait about 1 month after following steps 1-3 (while inviting multiple people to the site)
5. Bug the hell out of the admins (i'm just joking)
REAL 5. wait for the award to come, be patient. and maybe after 3-5 months of constantly inviting people, then send a friendly message to one of the nice (not mean) mods asking POLITELY to check your record of referrals.

p.s. if the admins ask where you got a guide for this... i had nothing to do with it!

I have 2 referrals, apparently, yet I do not have the 'Word of Mouth' award, is there a specific number of referrals that needs to be achieved to receive this award ?

^^^Coming soon guys.;)

There's no certain amount of Referrals needed to receive the Word of Mouth Award.

Congrats on all those getting this award and spreading the word for this great site. I think we should all make it a matter of course to point people here via our XBL Bio as it's the one thing a lot of people will see.

Just wondered whether anything was gonna happen with referrals - as it was mentioned in another thread that only Mods could see them - I wouldn't mind knowing who I'd referred. Or at least who had admitted it when they joined ha ha!

As for the Referrals, I believe only the Admins. or possibly a Super Mod can view who Referred you.

Ok a lot of people are posting stuff they have done and it all counts and after someone sees in time you will be given the award. Any means of spreading the word and there is no set number of referals or time you have to have it in your motto, spread the word and at some point you will get it.:)

I'm guessing its one of those achievments that you earn without having to pester mods and other members with your "i recommended xxxx people wheres my award". the longer your a member and if you ACTUALLY tell people about the site you should earn it. but if your referrals passes 100 and you have had the site in your motto for over a year then its time to say something.

But i do have a question... if you have the site in your motto and if people go to the site and join it. They would refer your gamertag and not your site screenname. how does that work exactly?

J O 12 D
01-04-2008, 09:28 AM
Goten that cannot be helped...unless you expect the admins to change everyones name now to their correct gamertag then when anyone changes name they will have to work even more to change all those.
It just wouldn't work as the admins would be working round the clock.

Motto on XBL
Signatures at relevant, big, gaming sites
Changing your tag to promote the site like so many people are doing ;)
Referrals
General site promotionEtc, etc, so long as its positive promotion of the site :)

I had been wondering about this award myself. I was always under the impression that if a mod/admin noticed you were spreading word positively about x360a, that you'd be awarded this in time.

I have x360a in my Bio, in my sig, in my sig at xbox.com, and I always refer people to the site when playing online in a match or playing through some levels of a game in co-op. I've sent messages to all my friends telling them to check out www.x360a.org for all their achievement needs.

I'm currently working on getting my local game store to pass out fliers (designed myself) with Xbox 360 games and mention it at tournaments that they hold every so often. I spoke with a supervisor and gave him a copy of my flier. He said that it sounded like a cool idea, that he just needed to clear it by the manager first, so we'll see in a day or so.

Being anxious, I went ahead and asked him what he thought that he'll do, say about it, etc... He said that what he'll probably do is go visit the site himself and make sure that its content is related to gaming, achievements, etc... before he started passing it out to customers. I even told him that I'd print up the flyers and make sure they had plenty so that they wouldn't have to put forth the money in printing them. I should hear back from him by then and I'll edit and let you guys know what he thinks of us! :p

So everybody be on your best behavior! ;) Only kidding of course.

I was also wondering... Is there an "Official" flyer for x360a? I just made up a quick flyer (cheap on ink), something that gave a lot of information about the site, the content we offer, and the community we have here but yet still looked appealing.

01-15-2008, 04:25 AM
Yeah I realized that awhile ago after I had posted in here asking how many referrals you needed to get the awarded. Then I realized if there was a set amount, say like get 5 referrals and you get the award, then people would probably start making tons of accounts to refer themselves. Hopefully I'll get this away someday! The motto, gamertag, and referrals altogether I'm sure will do the trick, but it probably also is for just giving the site a good reputation as well.

Before I submit anymore Members for the WoM Award, I will ask an Admin. to come in to set things straight. As for myself, I've been checking Member's Profiles to Confirm that everything is in order. So far, all Members that I've submitted for the award have been approved.

This site is great and all, but does it really matter if you get an award on a website that doesn't mean anything anywhere else? At the end of the day awards on this website are like your gamer score; it's just something for nerds to brag about:eek: It has absolutely no real value in life.

It's all about Personal Preference.

Gamerscore/Achievements adds enjoyment to Games. Just like how Awards add enjoyment to the Site.

Some achievements can add enjoyment, but I also feel that achievements have ruined video games also. Before people played games for fun now it seems as though the gaming society is leaning towards playing games in order to obtain a higher gamerscore. This isn't true for everyone as some still play games for fun. However many times I have run into people who will see how easy the achievements are to get before they buy the game. Why not buy it because you want to play it instead of getting a game for an increase in gamerscore. Everyone's different and we all have our own opinions/preferences.

This site is great and all, but does it really matter if you get an award on a website that doesn't mean anything anywhere else? At the end of the day awards on this website are like your gamer score; it's just something for nerds to brag about:eek: It has absolutely no real value in life.

I personally don't mind being called a nerd, but you should watch how you toss that word around. You're using it in an insulting way and some people don't appreciate that. If you don't care about the award then why bother going out of your way to insult someone? Also, if it wasn't for these "nerds", there wouldn't be this lush site filled with all this content.

Some achievements can add enjoyment, but I also feel that achievements have ruined video games also. Before people played games for fun now it seems as though the gaming society is leaning towards playing games in order to obtain a higher gamerscore.

Why not buy it because you want to play it instead of getting a game for an increase in gamerscore. Everyone's different and we all have our own opinions/preferences.

Achievements are now a standard. Once you've completed them, the accomplishment has been made. Before, people beat games then they feel that they achieved something. Now they have set gamerscores that will tell you went you've really done something. Would you want to buy a game that gives you 1000 in 3 minutes? Heck no. No one would.

That's not entirely true. To say that someone doesn't feel that they acomplished something until they beat the game isn't true. On several games I would feel like I've accomplished something when I reached a certain level. And I don't care how long it takes me to get 1000 in a game. If it took 30 seconds I would be ok with that as long as the game was fun. And if someone gets offended by the word nerd, then get over it. There are far worse things in life for people to get offended by or be worried about.

It's more than just a motto, but thats a good start :)

Positive advertisement of the site is pretty much the essence of it.
Motto on XBL
Signatures at relevant, big, gaming sites
Changing your tag to promote the site like so many people are doing ;)
Referrals
General site promotion

That's pretty much the requirements people. No, you probably won't get it just for your motto on XBL. No, you probably won't get it for just your signatures on other sites. No you probably won't get it for changing your tag, one referral, it's more a collaboration of those things. Emphasis on COLLABORATION of those things :)

Oh ok. That definitely clears things up. Even after having been said, I've gotten over half of those things and I'm still working on the rest. :) Regardless if I ever get the award, I'm still going to be inviting people and "spreading the word" of x360a for as long as this site is here.

Update: Still no word from my local gaming store about the x360a flyers yet, so I'm going to give him a call tomorrow after I get out of my Data Structures class to make sure that I'm making progress with that. I'll take pictures and everything to post also.

It seems like the WoM award is simply being handed out right now. Although it is fine to be "Spreading the x360a word" it seems like the award is more about letting a mod (or JDM it seems) know about your motto/bio. The award might mean more if it seemed like the mod had to notice your activity and see actual effects from the advertising (members introducing themselves and thanking Joe Public for showing them the site.)

I feel like I should see an award and go "wow, good job." Not see the WoM and think they simply told JDM to give them it.

I can make a fake account and refer my self... takes 5. I can change my name for 10 bucks, and trash talk online. Takes a bit but ruins the site.

There's a lot to consider. Referrals, repping the x360a in your Motto and Bio, how long you've been a member here, how many posts you have, etc. etc.

^^^It does seem that way and that's one of the MAIN reasons why I Closed this thread down momentarily. Many members are actually "overdue" and have earned the Award.

This thread is NOT an Award "Hand-out" thread. Just because you post in here, does NOT mean you're automatically given the WoM Award. As I stated above, there are many factors to consider. Please use this thread as a Reference on how to earn the WoM Award, instead of asking for it.

^^^This post was unnecessary Vista, but let me clear a few things up here.

We can never stop a member from adding x360a to their tag. If for some apparent reason they didn't know the rules beforehand, then I believe that would just be an honest mistake. I would never knock someone for adding x360a to their tag because they didn't know the rules. Unless they were some rude asshole, out to make the site look bad. In this case, I don't see Mire doing that.

Speaking of "getting out of hand", I believe that I've controlled this situation very well. I even brought Webb in here to let you guys know the bottom line of receiving this Award. Not only that, I've been checking member's profiles and doing my "homework".

As I said in the past, follow what Webb has to say and remember that this isn't a "hand-out" Award. Everyone will have to earn it and I'm looking for specific things, which I will not release to the public so don't bother to ask.

oh well ill change it when i get microsoft points kk

^^^Don't change your tag Mire. When the x360a Representers are back up, your name will be amongst the list of people that need to be vouched for.

FYI, the x360a Representers will also have a new set of Guidelines to follow. No announcement will be made until it's official.

Theres nothing wrong with bringing attention to your hard work...

While this is true, it has been mentioned by both mods and admins we really shouldn't be asking for the awards. I for example have 3 referrals only one of which I know who it was, and I changed my tag recently to x360a. I do spread the word to as many people I can online and in real life too. I haven't asked for the award though because I know its frowned upon and It's always more rewarding when the staff member see's it for himself and notices hey this member deserves credit for all they've done.

Ive had my name Carter X360a for a while now and no reward.

I could honestly care less, but it would be nice ;)

I was just wondering what else is needed for the 'Word of Mouth' award?

The URL is in my bio on xbox live:
(http://live.xbox.com/member/vulkean).

It is in my signiture at the xbox.com forums:
(http://forums.xbox.com/18569291/ShowPost.aspx#18569291 - scroll down to see).

And I have referred 4 or 5 people (I think).

Is there anything else I need?
Thanks.

Obviously you do care to some degree otherwise you wouldn't have posted.

Not sure if I'm allowed to post or not but it just gets on my nerves when I log on and look to this thread for unread posts and they are all the same.

People obviously do not get it. You'll get it in due time. PLEASE don't ask for it, it only gets annoying.

You know you have to be approved before putting that in your name, right? If you are then awesome, but if not you should probably tell a mod or admin that it's in your name. :p

Once again, this will be Locked down.

Use this thread as a Reference, Guide, a Tool, what ever you want to call it.

No more asking for the Award.

*Bump*

I will re-open this thread up, but seriously guys...please no more asking for the Award this time around. I'll be here to check on your Profiles, etc., so keep repping the site.:)

Again, if you guys can provide links to other sites where you rep x360a, that would be most helpful. Everyone should also have their "Mini-Gamercard" under their Forum names. If you don't already have it, go to your UserCP on the upper Left corner and from there click Edit Profile. You'll have to enter in your Gamertag on the bottom. This will also make my job easier.;)

So to re-cap, let's get those Referrals going, rep x360a in your Xbox Live Mottos and Bios, and rep them on other Sites!

If there are any questions, feel free to drop me a PM. Thanks everyone!

I've had in my XBL GT motto for a while, I've referred quite a few people (one who didn't know people even had gamerscores over 100,000 lol), and I've had the site as my main site for a few sites.

If I don't get the award for that I'm fine with it I don't plan on nagging like others. :X ;P

You guys shouldn't worry about getting awards. It should just be about helping people that have questions about games and want to get involved in a great community. I have no awards and have been a member for 2 years. I don't mind at all

How about this: Mods/Admins, post examples of those who have received it with reasons why. Not all, and not as a prerequisite list, but just to show independent thinking on the part of the award winner.

Well, don't ask for it, tell JDM that you have the site as your motto/bio and he'll check you out to see if you qualify for the award. :)

Would people please stop saying "I don't care, but I'd like the award". Obviously, YOU DO CARE otherwise you wouldn't be posting here. To be noticed to get the award it would be wise to post around the site before asking for it. That way the admins and mods see who you are and their first impressions of you aren't just that you're a random nobody who wants an award.

Sorry. :p

Milanche
03-07-2008, 11:14 PM
Don't get the wrong impression, I tried if I do quilify I will get it if not I'll get it in few months ;). I'm saying I don't really care because I'm not obsest with the awards, I'd like to have more, but I don't so...

Sorry for posting...

So true.

I'd just add to that. You have spread news of this site if someone else tells us what someone has done. Theres not much point telling those that are already here what you are doing. If your messages/sigs/slogans/mottos etc get noticed then of course people will come here and tell us how they were introduced.

Dont forget you can actually tell people about the site if they see you are a member here, so it does'nt just have to be a passive in direct message.
