If the usernames are tied to Gamertags, why hasn't mine updated after I changed my GT?

Recently, I changed my Gamertag on XBL from Meta Ray Mek to something different (EleganceLiberty) for various reasons. From my understanding, our forum usernames are tied to our Gamertags. Is there a reason why mine hasn’t changed at all after the switch?

The only other topic I could find was this one, and the last post -from someone from Microsoft- said they’d look into it. That was in August, and it’s now January. D:

I get that there’s probably a big infrastructure issue or whatever and it’s not as simple as hitting a ticky switch, but I figure I’d ask if anything’s come of it since that post.


Ask @rukizzel… he can answer I believe. There was someone asking this when the new forum layout firt started and I believe it has to do with it doesn’t auto update or something.

It may be in the thread for the new forum FAQ

Hey thanks for the question. This is something we are still working on. We rolled out what we thought was a fix recently, but guess what…

So we are working on another fix. Will let you know when we have more.


Oh boy! Somehow, it changed after I logged in on mobile. Sweet. Now I feel whole again, hahaha.

Thanks a bunch!
