Achievement Streak Recalc List (Timestamp Issues)

    Okay guys, so speaking with Rich about this again the devs currently don't have the resources to fix the timestamp issue. It would require a new scanner with a ton of devwork and it's a massive job. Similar to what I stated in the beginning of this thread.

    HOWEVER, there's an alternative solution that may work and we'll need someone to volunteer as a guinea pig for testing.

    Essentially, we'll be wiping all your achievements from the site and then re-scanning you. This should grab the correct timestamps for the broken achievements that Microsoft has now fixed which should in theory restore your streak to be correct.

    The only negative from this is any offline achievements you've earned will show an unlock date of the day they're scanned. This won't affect your streak at all, but will make your game and achievement list look funky for a bit.
    EDIT: Rich has said we can delete all achievements, but leave the Offline ones so this doesn't happen.

    Please let me know if you'd like to take this route.

    We have now tested the above method on a user and their highest streak has been restored correctly.

    All of you have now been rescanned. Your streaks should be in order. Let me know if something still isn’t right.

    Don’t forget to try a manual streak rebuild too. Some might not look fixed instantly, but it is.

    YEEEESS! lol

    My days look good. My achievement count over doubled but the rebuild seems to have helped. I'll have to dig through the list but it is 99.999% better now than it was an hour ago so I'm happy to say the least.

    Strange, the fix doesn't seem to have worked for me. I'm now only down to 10 pages of achievements won (of 19,753) and a lot of games that TA says I have gamerscore and achievements in show all the achievements locked when I go to the game page. Not even sure why some games still look fine, there doesn't seem to be much logic that I can work out, some games I've lost all my achievements in, others still have a few achievements showing up.

    (Should be noted that TA says my best streak is 8 days now, based on the random achievements it's scanned)

    Strange, looks like the scanners may have had a weird hiccup when the original purge was going through. I just did a full re-scan and a rebuilt your streaks. Looks like everything is in order now. Including your achievement pages.

    Let me know if something else is out of place.

    Edit: Other than the 23,000 achievement win milestone

    apparently I've been re-scanned. my current streak went from 300 days and 400 achievements to 300 days and 3,000 achievements. looks to me like the wrong number went up!

    I'd "rebuild my streak manually" but I can't find the button for it. maybe it's just this old browser that can't show it.

    It's right here: https://i.imgur.com/1cN7RRa.png

    I just rebuilt it for you and you're now at 688 days with 801 achievements

    that's not a link to the button, that's a picture! I can't click a picture!
    just kidding; thanks a ton for fixing this. (seriously, the right-side column is not displayed properly for me, so I couldn't see that button.)

    Are you on mobile? If so just tilt your device and the sidebar stuff will appear on any page if it doesn't already.

    no, I'm not on mobile. I'm using the IE app on my Xbox 360 because I currently do not have a working (modern) computer or a mobile.

    I tried tilting my Xbox but nothing happened except the green controller indicator light shifted position.

    Uhhh. So instead of fixing my streak, it's completely destroyed it.

    At first I noticed my completion percentage went down from 67.1% to 69.8%, no biggie right? Decided to check out this thread thinking it might be related to a streak fix, was delighted to see I was right, went straight to the manual rebuild to see if everything has been fixed.

    Instead, now my streak of 300+ days (400 without the streak breaking bug), has been replaced with a streak of just 17! days. My timezone is correct so that can't be the issue, and I can say without any doubt I've not missed a day in at least 309 days.

    There has been a few people on the list that had weird side effects. That being one of them. I’ve fixed it now though. Everything should be in order.
