Getting my original GT back

I've been a member of XBL since the beginning. I originally had the gamertag Nightwing,but I lost that due to the original Xbox live conflict with the EA servers not being able to read compound names. (as an example you could have either Major Nelson or MajorNelson,but not both.)

I was told that the gamertag would not be able to be ever used,so I forgot about it. Now I have found out that someone else DOES have that name,apparently a Silver account in Russia that hasn't been online for over a year. Is there any recourse or chance I have in getting me name back?

It might sound stupid,but the GT means a lot to me & my family.

Unfortunately not. If someone else is using it there's nothing you can do. If they ever change the name it will get freed up again.

As Smwutches mentioned, if another account has the tag, there's no way to free it up. Sorry we don't have better news for you!
