    What is the justification behind charging to change your gamertag?


    I would really like to now. Having worked in IT and supporting technology similar to this, it seems like a pretty out rages charge. Maybe I'm overlooking something. Maybe somebody can enlighten me? Admittedly I am fairly new to Xbox. I've found that it
    would be a good idea to change my gamer tag to something that is more gender "non-speciidea". But I find it a little hard to pay $10 (or whatever it costs), just on principal. I don't feel like I should have to avoid [Mod Removed] trolling me...

    :)

    Tax now on games?

    Due to the currency change from MSP to local currency your government is charging taxes.

  3. I think this is cool.

    What a nice surprise. $10 to change your gamertag was just insane, even though I understand the reasoning behind it.

    What is the justification behind charging to change your gamertag?

    working in it and support has little to do with running. A game server

    Not sure why you are comparing the two

    One it's a private service they can make their own rules

    As the only console that even allows name changes not sure what you are comparing it to

    2 to prevent people to change their name for whatever flavor of the month they feel like using

    Also to make sure that's the name they actually want and if it's a bad name prove they need to thinking harder on theie name and keep it rated e for everyone

    It doesn't have the same issues like updating leader boards

  5. Free gamertag change was abuse so much in the past, hence a fee to prevent trolls changing GT every 6 seconds.

    Not sure what you're trying to say there, that doesn't really make sense in the context of my question. The rest of it was a legit enough response though. Thanks.

    Justification

    To see about submitting a case review, you would need to go to
    http://enforcement.xbox.com


    Even though the game itself is rated R, everything else on Live has to remain E for everyone.
