I've been with the xbox 360 for over two years and have always used this site but never signed up for it. Now I have, but I have a question.

I go onto my profile from the homepage on this website and there's a thing that says "Gamertag" or something. I click Xbox Link which comes up but it comes up as page not found via xbox.com

I want to link my gamertag with this website, so how do I come about doing that?

Thanks for any trouble.

And I'll probably use these forums quite a lot. :)

Welcome to the site. If you look at the green banner you will see User CP. Click that and select Edit Your Details. Scroll down and the last box is were you enter your GT.

I tried it. When I do it says I do not have the requirements to view the page. It keeps saying it's restricted. Surely my account has been confirmed and activated? Because I think that's the only problem... but I have no activation emails or anything.

You should have gotten an email, but you also shouldn't be able to post unless you confirmed activation. This has me stumped.

When I click Edit Details, this is what comes up:

Creazil, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:


Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.


Yes, it has me stumped also. lol

I am having the exact same problem and I am not seeing any e-mails from the site through a Gmail search of my inbox. The only thing I seem to be able to access is to change/update my e-mail.

Yes, Roxy. Exact same thing. That's all I can do also. :( It's a shame because I'd love to have my gamertag set up on this.

Welcome :)

A bit weird this situation. I got the email straight after i hit the register button. Have you looked at the garbage thingie on the email? Incase of a filter or something on the mail.

For me, I ended up finding my e-mail by searching for "forum". I had already read it and it said my account was already activated. I tried searching the forums and someone in a similar situation was told to PM Krazie, so I tried that. Haven't heard anything back, but I hope they can fix my problem.

Does this have to do with the new "10 post requirement" put in effect recently?

Yes, it does. To edit your details, you must have a post requirement of 10 posts. When you hit that number, you should be able to edit your details. Until then, enjoy posting. :)

Here's some extra details.

I had the same problem just now, but I found this post, and it is the 10 post requirement I was having trouble with. Working on it now :)

It is the 10 post rule as I had it too... oddly, I haev about 15 posts, but only 9 in my profile... I just don't get the method of addition used by this site.

I agree- Kinda stupid having a ten post rule as, from experience unless you are highly ranked on a forum- or alternatively have a high gamerscore no one will take you seriously

Why do you need 10 posts?

In recent weeks, there have been spambots that have been signing up to the forums, and "wrecking" havoc. This disallowed most spambots from showing up. Which it has, exponentially.

EDIT: Oh, and just as a reminder to anyone who's looking to get their post count up; Post Count doesn't count in Member Profiles section of the forums. Posting elsewhere around the site will raise it. Just don't spam...;)

I hit 10 posts and it still doesn't work. Maybe this 11th will do it. Either that or I log out and in again.

I was having this exact problem, but I couldn't find an answer in the FAQ's section. In fact I had to find this page by doing a google search with the website name in the search. But at least I know now.
