i haven't been getting scanned as usual and its affecting the community event. My team was knocked out this morning.
Looking at your scanner report (https://www.trueachievements.com/scanner.aspx?scanner=TA+Sca...), I don't see anything wrong. Non-pro users are scanned once a day and can request 3 updates in a 24 hour period. You were auto-scanned once about 11 hours ago and you requested a scan about a half hour ago. Unfortunately that was 50 mins after the GTASC period ended.

Looking at your scanner page, I see you were scanned on the 26th, 27th, and 28th at approximately the same time each time. None of these 3 scans were requested:

Yesterday at 00:08:41
27 Jul at 00:18:15
26 Jul at 00:46:14

These times are all in EST.

Your Xbox Live page shows 16/19 achievements for DOOM 1993 so it's reflecting correctly here.

Must be a sync issue with Microsoft then because it's showing 16 when I check through Xbox.com

Are the scanners having difficulties? Keeps saying I have '10 people ahead of me' for about 10 minutes now

Edit 2 minutes later:
hmm...I may have been too impatient (happens every now and then ) ;-)

I did a scan last night at around 10;30 on 8/6 and it said I received the achievement at 3:18 am tomorrow 8/7. I got another one this morning hoping it would straighten it out and now it says I received 2 today.
I checked Xbox.com and it shows I received the achievement 8/6 also.

Yeah, looks like the future achievements problem has reared its head again. I've seen a few people saying the same thing.

TA Scanner 3 screwed up the time stamps for achievements I’ve earned in L4D2 and Starved for Help dlc. It shows I unlocked these achievements today, instead of yesterday. The time stamp was 4 hours ahead of the actual time I earned the achievements. I checked on Xbox.com and the time stamps were correct, so I don’t know what’s wrong with the scanner.

It's not our scanners, it's something on Microsoft's end. They may have corrected it after the fact.

Up until yesterday, my streak was intact, I was nearing 200 days.

Then when I updated it yesterday it said my streak was only 39. The problem is an Achievement I got in World of Tanks on the Xbox 360 on July 11th. The scanner says it unlocked on the 12th. On my 360 the Achievement is time stamped for July 11th, on the Xbox App on my phone it also shows July 11th.
You ever wonder why we're here?

i have an issue with the scanners in that it has scanned two achievements for gears of war two that were earned on 26/8/19 as being earned in the early hours of 27/8/19 which has broken my achievement streak!

Your achievements popping with a future timestamp is currently an ongoing Microsoft issue. This has happened in the past before, but it has shown up again. This time it seems only 360 achievements are affected. Once MS has fixed the issue for good on their end the TA devs will implement a fix on our end and everyone's affected timestamps will return to normal. Keep earning daily achievements and your streak will return to normal once the fix is put in place.

The Devs are already in contact with MS and working together to resolve everything.

TA Scanner 2 isn't picking up the new achievements I earned in Goldeneye today. Two manual scans afterwards are giving me a "Scan failure - Invalid gamertag" alert on the Recent Scans page, despite that being the correct tag.

Edit: Looks like it's pretty wide spread as well: https://www.trueachievements.com/scanner.aspx

It isn't TA. If XBL is down, there's nothing for TA to scan.
