Well, I'm not sure how Routine did it, but the gamercards on the main page seem to be back in working order. :D

Not sure whether this is feedback or an announcement :p

Is x360a planning on having it's own Gamercard thing? If you view the images location it's all located at gamercard.x360a.org.

It took quite some time creating a gamercard script and it's been some looong nights lately with it, but everything should be up and running as it should.

The cards are updated several times an hour for now and the time will be adjusted some after checking how it affects the server load.

We added them to
http://gamercard.x360a.org/themename/gamertag.png in stead of i.eg
http://www.x360a.org/images/gamercard/themename/gamertag.png
to make the url as short and easy as possible.

We haven't planned on making something major with the gamercards other than just adding the x360a ones that were lost when livecard went down (and perhaps make some new ones).

We currently have three themes:

The default one

Card located in the header of the site

Do they work on websites other than x360a?

They are images like any other images on the internet ;)

Quiet you! I just have a fragile mind after so many physiology lectures =( And the interwebs work in mysterious ways, the new gamercards could just be a portal to another web only open on this very site =o

Yeah. Those blue "livecard is gone forever" tags were getting annoying.

Thanks so much for fixing this. The missing gamercard slowed down my browser like no other every time I opened a page on the site. Awesome to have it back up and working. Thanks again!

Good job:locked

Thank you, looks nice now instead of the invalid message :)

It was from Livecard.net.


Good job Routine.

Actually I think I noticed a gradual change. One day the blue livecard was just gone and all it said was gamercard. Then and now BAM My gamercard is back!

Thanks Routine!

I was going to look and see if anybody said it or not but there's too many posts already to look through them all, so I'm not sure if anyone said it, but...I think it would be a sick idea if the site had their own gamercard generator, just like MyGamerCard,etc.
