Support

I use my released mods daily, if I find an issue with them or add features for myself I will release updates. If there are significant bugs or simple feature requests I will do my best to release fixes. Some of my mods rely on fetching data from 3rd party websites, due to the unreliable results, my mods will require users to troubleshoot for themselves if they find the addon is not working for them specifically. I am offering my personal mods that work ok for me for you to use, I am sorry I do not have time to troubleshoot many user specific issues. Thank you for your understanding.

Features

  • Lists all ranked Gamertags, each updated once per day
  • Optionally show unranked Gamertags (Original Xbox Users).
  • Optionally allow Xbox Live message sending.
  • Optionally allow Xbox Live friend requests.
  • Optionally to choose how many User Names Per Page to display.
  • Optionally require a minimum post count.
  • Optionally to add a navbar link.*
  • Optionally to add a miscellaneous quick link.*
  • Choose how recently users must be active to be displayed.
  • Optionally display leaderboard statistics
  • Limit usergroups to display.
  • Limit access by usergroup.
  • Optionally display Forumhome stats
  • Optionally display Memberinfo gamercard
  • Optionally display Postbit leaderboard rank
  • Monitors invalid gamertags, 5 attempts to verify the gamertag and then the users gamertag profile field is blanked to prevent further checks.
  • Can link directly to a gamertag position in the leaderboard with gxboxlive.php?gt=Gamertag

My Leaderboard has not updated in five days. Anyone else having this problem?

Have run scheduled task - no change. Possible Gamercard server issues?

Thanks.

I have 2 users who have been on the leaderboards for well over a year, and now they're not. Their gamertags haven't changed, been edited, or anything, on XBL or our site. Nothing has changed or been messed with, and they vanished. They were number 1 and 2, so it was obvious. I double and triple checked and spelling, spaces, capitalization is all 100%. Ideas?

Edit: There's about a half dozen or so that we've discovered that won't appear on the leaderboard.

I have the same issue with several gamertags and I am sure it has to be with MS servers. Is your board updating the scores? Mine has not updated in seven days now. Gamertags in the profiles are fine, just the feed to leaderboard.

I think, all have the same problem, because even the authors leaderboards in the example show the 25.06.2010 as last update.

Same here. Not updating with new additions, or gamertag changes.

The user profile part of it is working properly - just not the list.

Is there a fix yet for the non-updating leaderboards? Mine hasn't been updated for over 3 weeks.

Well, I can tell you why it doesn't work. The requests being made by miner.gxboxlive.php on line 93 are being rejected.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If you throw together some inline code to output the result of that to the Admin console then you see a bunch of Access Denied messages.

Now, it is possible to remove all the query parameters in that string above and it starts to work again. However, I strongly suspect (with no actual evidence) that Microsoft has banned all requests with that query string involved and their Community Developer terms of service explicitly state that they reserve the right to ban any site or application they consider to be abusing their system.

As a result, I strongly suggest that, if you fancy your hand at hacking out the query string, that you also ensure the gXboxLive scheduled task runs no more than once per day. Abuse may lead to banning and I didn't see any right of appeal.

YMMV but good luck.
