Filing reports to change name.

#1 Posted by Ket87 (441 posts) -

Just wondering how many people need to report you before Microsoft tells you too change your name. I changed my account and decided it wasn't for me and wanted to change it back. Anyone have a rough estimate to determine if I should just ask my buddies or hound random strangers to avoid the 800 MS points?

Filing reports just to get a name change is ridiculous. People need to learn how to throw down the cash, or not make the change at all.

Or you could just pick a name that you like...

I wish we didn't have an option to change at all. All these clans and letters, numbers, etc. are ridiculous. I've had my gamertag since the original Xbox, no change.

I took the time to choose my name, so I named it after an anime character I like.

I don't know if it's true or not, but I've heard that if they force you to change your name now, you'll have to pay for it.

It does not work, MS checks all of these complaints to see if the name is bad.
