Im thinking of changing my xboxlive name... Will this change anything on my profile apart from my xboxlive name? Like.. Ranks on cod4, gamerscore, Gamerpics/themes/arcade games i have brought, Save files, and friends?
Will i loose any of that? Or will it change any of that?
Also what do you guys think is Worse.. A Ok Name with numbers in..
Or a name that dont stand out but with no numbers in?

No you don't lose anything when you change your name. Everything on your account stays exactly the same.

It really depends on the name in my personal opinion. If it works and looks good with numbers then go for it.

The only thing that will change will be the name. Everything else stays the same, so you'll be fine.

As for the name change, make a name without any numbers in it..original gamertags are amazing ^.^

I hate gamertags with more than one or two numbers in it. Like Smith304040.

But your rank and profile will stay the same. Just your name changes.

Hm, Cool i guess im changing my Name soon... Btw is there a way i can change Killerchris121 on thsi website to what my new name will be? It will get a little confuzing being called KillerChris121 on this website when its changed..

And on the 1000 clubs, will they be able to change killerchris121 to my other name? Or do i just tell them my new tag and they leave killerchris121 up there?

If you're gonna add numbers, make sure they represent something important to you. After all, you're the one who has to use the name, or pay to change it. You don't wanna wind up having a name with, say, 6 random numbers that just popped up in your head.

Most people just use the numbers represented by their birthday, or their age, etc. But if you can get a pretty cool name, then usually you don't need numbers.

I'm pretty sure Webb got a name change a while back, in old threads he was DaWebb..

I dunno if you're significant enough to get a name change, but yeah, possibly.
