According to this thread, it says that signature pictures must be between 500 and 300 pixels. I have been trying to upload one at something like 486 and 100 and it won't let me. Why is this?

EDIT: Apparently it wouldn't except the file from photobucket, but if I downsized it and saved it to my computer, it seemed to work. So nevermind.

I'm having the same problem, but nothing seems to work. I think everything is fine, but the picture never shows up for some reason.

Could someone give me a hand please?

This is the pic if anyone needs it

Just to start with, your image is too tall by 100 pixels. The requirements are 500 pixels in width, 300 pixels in height. You need to host your images on a site such as photobucket, tinypic etc. Copy the url image from your hosting site and use the following code in your signature.

I'm really sorry about that, I meant my profile picture, not my sig...



I think it might work now though, I will let you know, but I resized it to 100x75 on photobucket, and the requirements are 100x100 so lets see!

FAIL! haha, thats strange, at least it pops up in the thread. thanks for helping and sorry for the bother.

Ah okay, sorry I misunderstood. You may find that the image was too big in the first place. The image size was probably also over 64kbs.

When you log in from the main page, located up in the left hand corner it will say "My Profile" directly under where it says "My Checklists". Go ahead and click [HERE]. Once your profile has loaded, simply scroll down to where it will display your Achievement Case. You can click "(Edit)" to edit any items within the achievement case.

Hope this helps out.

Is there not a way to just link your achievements, instead of having to check them 1 by 1?? If not Hey!! XBOX360ACHIEVEMENTS.ORG, that would be a cool and handy feature to work on. The new program Raptr tracks everything like all your games and achievements. Look into how they do it and implement it into your awesome website.

No, as we have said time and time again there is no way for us to access that information without breaching Microsoft's TOS. Other sites that do obtain this information Screen Scrape which violates the terms between Microsoft and other websites.

We are apart of the Developer program but we do not have access to any such feeds which offer achievements. It may happen in the future but until that happens the checklists will be manual.

Don't know if someone said it some point near the bottom of the first page, but I tried accessing the link in the first post on how to write the achievement guide and it said invalid link. I didn't check the others, but if you want, I can do it and report if others are.

Edit:
I did open the Submission Rules thread and the link to writing the achievement guides works in that thread. So, just the link in the first post appears to not be working.

Also, great job on this.
He's right, I ve got a E74 error, try three other cables but still have the same problem. Try my cable on an other xbox360, it works perfectly.

I have 31 posts and I can't link my gamertag. I can update my Achievement Case, Checklists, Wishlists and Collection but I can't link my gamertag...


Also my brother got his posting privileges lost and he has no idea why. His name is Tyler282514 and his gamertag is XavierHenry13. He had over 75 post. If a mod or Webb can connect via private message him that would be nice.

Thumbs up

I actually appreciate the rules with having to apply 10 posts. I hate reading through other forums and having to sift through the spam that is too often flooding readers comments and wasting time for everyone.

This guide should help clear up a lot of repeat questions. The following information will guide you towards the answers you may be looking for, if there is something missing please let me know.



Getting Started: Some of you have probably asked some of these questions before so here are a few threads to cover everything you need from profile maintenance to achievement guide preparation.



!!! IMPORTANT PROFILE CHANGE !!!


=========================



All new users will have to make 10 posts as a minimum requirement before they can edit their profile details. This includes: Gamertags, Signatures, Avatars etc.



DO NOT SPAM YOUR WAY TO 10 POSTS.



=========================



Posts & Threads



Before you jump in and start making posts always use the search function, if you can't find anything look around the forum before posting. There are a few threads that you'll see in each individual game forum. Read how to use the stickies before making new threads.


  • Search before you post
  • Don't double post
  • Abusive posts are not tolerated
  • Do not bump threads
If those basic posting rules aren't enough here is a list of forum/site rules for your to look over. Breaching these rules will lead to either infractions or a ban depending on your offense so make sure you know them and use common sense at all times.



Forum/Site Rules



Posting


Guide Writing


Reporting Issues: If you either run into an issue with a member or find a mistake on the website these links may be useful.



Broken/Missing


Member Issues


After reading through these threads you should be an expert in maintaining your profile. You also know everything about achievement guides, roadmaps and all the other small but interesting parts to this forum.



Getting Tech: There are quite a few technical based questions and plenty of threads to answer your questions. There are plenty of threads which may have answered your questions but there are other resources which may prove useful.


There are a lot of technical questions to ask so dig through the tech forum to see if anyone else has asked what your looking for.



Graphics: If your after a custom signature you can find a large group of talented users who will be able to aid your requests. If you have any other graphic based questions you can also find tutorials and ask for help with your own projects.


Game Related: If you want to find out game specific information the following threads may prove useful.






If you have any questions regarding a certain game please post those questions in the forum for that game.




thanks for that it really helped me out

Things have changed a lot and I haven't yet got around to updating this. I need to re-do some of the links and information as well. Some have been replaced or are now out of date and no longer required.
