Ways to avoid getting [rank] reset?

(I searched for "avoid" and "reset" and didn't get any specific answers)

Just bought this, thought the campaign was even better than the 1st, and have played around 10 multiplayer matches so far (the lag hasn't been as bad as Halo 3 and MW2 can be, oddly enough). However it's obvious after five minutes on this forum that getting reset seems to happen a lot. Are there any specific ways to avoid this? Also, I'm not worried as much about rank reset as the Seriously 2.0 counter getting reset. (That and Ranked Champion from UT3 feel kinda ridiculous, btw)

if your rank ever gets reset, immediately quit to dashboard, and recover your gamertag. Thats the way to fix it.

I think that the last update was supposed to have fixed this, but I could be wrong.

Also, avoid loading up the game without being signed in to your gamertag, just in case.

You can't really avoid that though when you've just had a title update for the game.

After the update, it signs you in and starts the game at the same time.

If you're that worried (I've not heard about anyone getting reset right after getting an update), dashboard out before the game fully loads.
