Number next to gamertag

In the new update there is a number next to your gamertag ? What does this means?

I Have number 2, saw some people with "3" and some with no number

Its your gold member veteran status. Its how many years you have been a Gold Member for.

Apparently it is supposed to give some perks but we dont know what they are yet.

The update has gone LIVE to everybody now then? Or are you on the preview program?

Cuz if the update is now LIVE to everybody you guys got exactly the same thing as the preview guys, as I recieved no further update.......

And on topic: Yeah, it's the number of years you had live for. It doesn't round it up from .5 either.

Mine says 4 but I've had live for over 5 years (June 04), I've never changed my tag, never gone to silver, so the number is hardly accurate anyway.

yeah you've got an overall completion tab in your achievements now but its depressing bcoz i have 38885/137895 lol

but on a good note it tells you which games you got 100% and shows a tile of it as well.

Check the new features part of the 'Welcome' channel, it mentions that there may be perks for it.

Is all this stuff about it resetting if you go silver true? If so that's fairly ridiculous, but oh well. Mine would be a 1 in a month but I was silver for a little while early this year.

its how long you have had your xbox live gold membership...

its called your gold or live veteran status, not sure if there will be anything more to this to come, and i have read that if you let your gold subscription slip to a silver for more than a 14 day (2 week) time period, that veteran status restarts to the day you renew it... cant confirm or not confirm that however

Can someone tell me how I only have a 1 when ive had xbox live for 3+ years?
Im thinking maybe I forgot to renew my account a year ago and it went to silver. and its been reset.

Having 240,000 gamerscore with a 1 next to my name doesnt look right. People are going to think im a cheat.
