    What do the numbers in the gold circles beside your gamertag on your profile mean? I've noticed some of you guys have a 1 like me, while others have as high of 5. Any idea?

    Years on the service, methinks.

    If I remember correctly, the number of years you've been a live member. And apparently they're all wrong since I've been a member for more then a year.

    I've only been a member a year, so I know mine's right.

    Not just Live member, it's how many years straight you've been a gold member. Let it slip for even a day, and it looks like you get reset.

    But it only counts the years you have been a active Gold Member.
    So if you signed up for gold 1 year, 11 months ago, it would only show 1 year.

    Not anymore.

    I just wish I could merge my original gamertag with my current one. I lost my original one when I switched to a new original xbox. I couldn't remember the phone number that we had at my mom's house and my card that I had signed up with was expired. I couldn't recover my old tag and I only had about a month left. I just used the free month that came with a game and a new renewal card to start a new tag. Now I'm stuck at 5 instead of 6 where I should be.
