It's been quite an impressive week for us at Gamertag Nation. I'd like to thank our newer members for providing a surge of activity that has boosted Gamertag Nation as a whole. I look forward to gaming or just hanging around the site with each one of you. With that said, I'd like to take this time to formally introduce the newest features we've added since the last post in the tribune.
We have 4 new ornaments as of today. They are: Rock and Rolled, Rock Revolutionary, Finding The Founder, and Supporting a Nation. We have 2 of them featuring Guitar Hero and Rock Band players. The other 2 are given to people who donate to GTN or play with me on Xbox Live. You can find a detailed list of the obtainable ornaments here.
Embed Youtube Videos
Posting Youtube videos have become very simple now. All you need is the video ID or the last part of the video URL. For example, the Youtube video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PibXTko6VC4 has a video ID of PibXTko6VC4. To embed the video in your post with ease, simply use this code:
[ youtube ]VIDEOID[/ youtube ]
(take out the spaces before and after youtube)
Have a website or blog? We now offer linkbacks for any post or thread made in our community. Should you find a thread/post interesting, you may now link directly to the thread/post and we will automatically link back to you. At the bottom of select threads, you may notice linkbacks for that specific thread. Those are typically websites or blogs which have linked to that thread. It's a quick and easy way to exchange links with us. You can find all the details in regards to linkbacks here.
Gamertag Nation wants your monies! We really don't, but we are accepting donations for those who are wishing to contribute to the operation of our website. As the owner of this website, I am responsible for all costs associated with operating and maintaining it. Each person who voluntarily donates to Gamertag Nation will have their name placed on our donation page. If you have a website or blog, include your details and we will even link you within the same list. We will also consider further rewards or bonuses for donators in the future. You can view our donations page here.
Well that should be it for today. I will keep you all posted on what's going on in our part of the internetz so stay tuned.
I understand the situation man. You will be able to get the ornaments once you have those games listed as part of your recently played games. To my knowledge, once you get the Xbox 360 connected to the internet, Xbox Live will update your information. Once that happens, we will update our system with the games that you have played. If your list of played games includes the Rock Band/Guitar Hero games, you will automatically receive the respected ornaments for each one.
Yes, those ornaments are still bugged. I don't expect for them to work fully until more of the achievements are added for all of the games in the game directory. Since those are all added manually, one by one, it may take a little longer.
Well finding resources aren't an issue. There are plenty of sources for achievements on games, including the Xbox 360 itself. The time it takes to add each achievement takes awhile and that's what has been taking awhile. Consider that each game typically has between 12 to 50 achievements each. We have over 400 games in the directory now so I can only take it a game at a time really.
I don't want to be a bitch, but you put fullstops at the end of some ornament descriptions, and some without. Fix! It looks messy, Eric!

Also, not sure if you knew this, but in the game profile, for example Halo's, you can't click on the threads related to the game. Looking at the url for it, you haven't put the variable in there. Dunno if it's a mistake, but.
Please let old threads die and do not reply to them unless you feel you have something new and valuable to contribute that absolutely must be added to make the discussion complete.
Otherwise, please post a new thread in this forum instead.
