Leaderboard FAQ

We use a series of automatic leaderboards that can be found by clicking here. The leaderboards are designed to help those members who regularly contribute to the forum to see how they compare with others who participate in the forum. The leaderboards are NOT designed to provide a comprehensive ranking of every member on Xbox Live or even every person who uses the site for guides. They are targeted at active forum members only at this time.

If you would like to be on the leaderboards, first make sure that you qualify from a forum participation perspective:
  • You must have at least 50 posts in the forums
  • You must have at least one post in the last 60 days
  • Your Xbox.com profile must be set to public
See the Spoiler tag below for instructions on how to set your XBL profile to "Public".


The next step is to ensure that you have your correct and current gamertag entered in the appropriate field in your profile. To do this, go to your User Control Panel and choose Edit Your Details which is the top choice on the left. The gamertag field is all the way at the bottom.

The leaderboards currently update approximately every 6 hours. That may change as the number of people on them change. If you fall off the leaderboard because you failed to post in the last 60 days, you will be automatically added back on the next time you post in the forums. Note that it can take two cycles (currently 12 hours) for you to re-appear on the leaderboards if this happens.

When you are on the leaderboard, you do not need to manually update the 100% completion tracker on your profile. We will do that automatically for you.

The Maximum Clubs are not automatic. You must manually sign up for these by going here.

The information displayed on the leaderboards changes depending upon if you look at the Global leaderboard or a Genre leaderboard.

Global leaderboard categories:
  • Score: The total gamerscore you have in all games across all platforms.
  • # Ach: The total number of achievements you have unlocked in all games across all platforms
  • Games: The number of games that show on your gamercard (this specifically excludes applications that display on your gamercard, such as IE, Netflix, Gamer Deals, etc.)
  • Completion: This is your completion percentage of the games you have played in this category. It is calculated by taking the value of # Ach and dividing it by the total number of achievements available in the games used to calculate the value of Games. Note that glitched and unachievable achievements (such as Dog of War in Tom Clancy's EndWar) are included in the calculation.


Genre leaderboard categories:
  • Score: The total gamerscore you have in games that are categorized in this genre
  • # Ach: The total number of achievements you have unlocked in games that are categorized in this genre
  • Games: The number of games that show on your gamercard that are categorized in this genre
  • Completion: This is your completion percentage of the games you have played in this category. It is calculated by taking the value of # Ach and dividing it by the total number of achievements available in the games used to calculate the value of Games. Note that glitched and unachievable achievements (such as Dog of War in Tom Clancy's EndWar) are included in the calculation.
  • Category %: This is your completion percentage of all games in this category, regardless of whether or not you have played them. It is calculated by taking the value of # Ach and dividing it by the total number of achievements available in the games in this category. The divisor is actually shown above the rankings in the Statistics summary.

Individual title Leaderboards can be accessed by going to the game overview screen and selecting Leaderboards from the menu. For instance, the Stormrise leaderboard can be found here. Ranking is sorted first by gamerscore, then by number of achievements, and then alphabetically by gamertag. This means the people who have completed any particular game will show up alphabetically rather than sorted by who completed it first. This is because the date you finished a game or earned a particular achievement is not provided by Microsoft in their official feed at this time. As such, it is a violation of the agreement sites such as ours have with Microsoft to try to obtain that information through unauthorized means.


If you have any further questions or concerns, please ask them below and I will address them.

I got my 50th post yesterday (about 12 hours ago), but my profile is still not updating my gamerscore, nor am I on the leaderboards. I've checked my Xbox Live Gamertag, and it is correct. I even removed it, saved, then re-entered it again just to make sure. Any suggestions/solutions?

So these are the correct requirements for being displayed on the leaderboards? On the FAQ page, there are different requirements.

I used to show on the leaderboards but stopped because I had not posted in 60 days but I have since posted and it has been at least a week and I still don't see myself on the leader board. Any idea why? I did read on another post that deleting a zero gamerscore could cause problems which I have done. If this is the problem how do I fix it?

Your Xbox profile does not appear to be set to public.

It won't show, because your Xbox Live profile is set to private. We respect that wish and don't show any private profiles. Doing otherwise would be rude, don't you think?

Look underneath your name on your post above, and that will show you how many posts you have (currently 4). You can also click on your profile in the upper left corner and see that information on your statistics page.

I understand what's been laid out here...but what does one do when their post count doesn't update? I'd been inactive for a while, but then when I started posting again (maybe, last week?) it showed my posts at a 19 pretty much the whole time. I posted a few times earlier this week, and it's now at 20. Something seems off unless I'm missing something... O_o

The Off Topic forums don't add to your post count.

I thought I found a thread the other day that did some troubleshooting for my issue but I can't seem to find it again, so I'll ask here since it's semi-related.

I am finally showing up on the leaderboard (yay!), but this hasn't gotten the gamerscore on my gamercard here to properly update. Is this something that could take another 6 to 12 hours? I've deleted my GT, saved, and re-entered it in the User CP section and that didn't seem to have an effect.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

UPDATE: All is well now. Thank you and carry on!

I too seem to have disappeared from the leaderboards. My Gamertag hasn't changed, but my x360a username was changed from "x THE TORNADO x" to "Double O Slevin" a few months ago. Could that be the reason?

No, it is because you had gone 60 days without posting in the forums.

Posting in the off topic forums does not count towards your post count.
