Hi guys, something strange happened earlier today.

i signed into xbox live and i was idling for a few mins deciding what to do.

anyways my problem is that i saw an unfamiliar name pop up at the bottom of my screen, i check my friend list to see if anyone has changed there name and they havent.

i waited for awhile and the name hadnt turned back up.

Anyone have any idea what has happened there?

Someone last week or so had the same thing happen to them. It wasn't a name the knew and no one had changed their name, they said. I don't see how that could happen. It hasn't happened to me.

Maybe it's just one of those rare bugs

Hmm, this is really strange. I don't know how that could have happened, and you said that this mystery person wasn't on your friends list. :o I'm not sure to be honest with you.

Someone probably just changed their name and it hasn't updated yet. That happened to me recently and that is what the case was.

A friend changed their name and then deleted you. Either that or the Gamertag hasn't updated yet.

This incident happened this morning and i have just checked my list now, no changes and the same people are still there

If no one's changed their GT then geez dude I dunno. Sounds like a weird bug maybe?

This happened to me last week as well. Some random name popped up like if a friend of mine had become online. Didn't think much of it at the time though...

Gamertags to take awhile to update...

I had it happen with someone who changed their tag. The new name would pop up but they showed up on my friends list as the old name still. Try looking up the name on xbox.com if you see it again and see if you notice who they are.

I don't pay attention to my notifications 90% of the time. Even when someone messages me, I can literally go hours without noticing...

Really though, that sounds pretty odd! If you're sure it's not someone who changed the gt, may be it's your messenger signing you out and you mistakened that for it? Still try signing out and signing in again, if you haven't already. Wish I knew more, because this is the first time I heard of something like this.

Frickin' had me worried there for a moment, someone had changed their gamertag and didnt tell me about it, and ionly noticed a few mins ago from posting this message when i sigend out/in again and then it had updated.

Had the same problem last week (made a topic too). Just someone that changed their name but it hasn't updated in your friends list yet.
