I figure I'll keep on doing what I've been doing and it'll all work out. I was one of the people who didn't have their points showing up so I'm glad. I don't understand why they're having such problems though.

I got the e-mail too. It looks like an exact copy of what was sent out before. lol I'm thinking they are calling bogus on the near 7,000 calories burned in one day too. That and some folks still aren't showing up. I really hope they can piece this together. It sounds like such an awesome contest. Lots of ways to win various stuff.

Mine is showing up. But it said I had burned 767 calories, of which 40 were "today"...that 40 cal workout was done around 2pm yesterday.


I am ranked 136 with one entry. I'm not sure if my ranking is overall, or just in my demographic. They certainly could be a LOT clearer.

Well, mine are just now showing up. They weren't a few hours ago and it said it was updated at 10 a.m. I'm ranked 199th with 1 entry. I exercised yesterday around 7 p.m.

The current leader has nearly 7,000 calories burned!!! I'm totally calling bogus on that one. There's no way one person burned that many calories in the game in one day.

Still not up and running. I did burned a bunch of calories yesterday and zilch showing up this morning. Someone mentioned it may still be tracking it and will populate later, but I'm still a little doubtful. Fingers cross though.

No, I checked last night after working out, and my calories weren't showing. I checked again this morning to see if they only update it once a day (ie in the middle of the night), and NOBODY has any calories yet. I'm thinking they still haven't worked out all the bugs.

I really like the game, but I wish they would get all the extras (website, ipod app, contest) working properly.

Sweet! Thanks for posting. I created a nice little filter in my e-mail that automatically sorts out incoming email. lol, I guess I did it right because that same announcement went right into a folder without me seeing it. If it wasn't for you, I would have totally missed out.

Thanks again. Good luck on the challenge everyone!

I received this e-mail today:

We are writing to let you know that the Your Shape™ Calorie Crushing Challenge's reporting error has been fixed, so start burning calories again! The Challenge will be restarted on Wednesday, January 26th at 12:01 a.m. PT.

Here's what it's now saying on the Your Shape site:

The “Your Shape™ Calorie Crushing Challenge” has been temporarily suspended due to a reporting error on the Challenge website. Some users experienced difficulties having their calories calculated. In the interest of fairness, we are suspending the contest until the problem has been fixed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and will notify you as soon as the problem has been resolved and the Challenge is resumed.

Once resumed, the Challenge will be re-set to the beginning of week one. As originally scheduled, the promotion will have four entry periods where you can burn 200 calories per day and be entered to win a Grand Prize adventure vacation of a lifetime and a Weekly Sweepstakes Prize of 1,600 Microsoft Points! And the top five calorie burners each week will still be able to win a Ubisoft game for Xbox 360®!

That sounds right; took me forever to find them too. Under personal training, go to "update my program" and scroll through the options. You'll see cardio, etc. The ones you've unlocked via uPlay should be there.

It might be under personal training- that's where the New Year, New You program.

I'd look more into it for you, but I can't even get my info up. I went to play tonight and it tried to set up a new profile. If everything is gone, I'm going to be pretty ticked!

We have deca sports and party in motion and don't care much for either of them.

I downloaded Hip Hip Hooray from uplay but I am not seeing it on my game. It shows that I bought it. But I am not seeing where to play it at, not under personal training, nor gym games, nor where I play cardio and zen. We have never done this before so neither my son nor I know how to find it. Please help if you can.

lol, hopefully they'll have more gym games to download later. Right now there aren't any. By the sounds of it, I would recommend Kinect Sports. You can download the free demo via the Xbox.

Were you ever able to create a profile on the contest page?

We have a snow day here. So I am having to fight with my son over the xbox. I might have to play the mom card, lol. Really he has been on it for a long time and it is time for him to get his chores done. So I am going to make him get off while he gets his chores done and I am going to get on so I can burn my 200 calories. He is taking it to a friend's housefor the weekend.

BTW are there any more gym games available on any of the upgrades? We enjoy the competition but get a little bored with the games. We play that the winner gets to pick the next challenge and can play for hours. It is good active family fun. Hubby is still a little to shy to get to involved in it.

Unfortunately there currently isn't a way to string them together with no break. The only thing I've seen is the longer workouts on the personal trainer areas. The downloadable ones and the unlocked ones are 25 minutes and feature back-to-back sessions.

I'm pretty sure both of the other fitness games have customizable workouts and calendars. That's one of the biggest things people have said against this game. That and the lack of floor exercises. Who knows, maybe they will patch it down the road or do something snazzy in the sequel.

It takes me about an hour with boxing. Not including the min in between sessions where you have to repick the session. Keep in mind I also weight 285 so I tumble through the calories. Is there anyway to link sessions so I don't have that break in between.

BTW, how did you do a trouble ticket? I only found one e-mail on the actual contest website and got it bounced back as invalid. I scoured Twitter and found a Ubisoft employee to write him.

Also, have you all checked out the compare friends feature on the website? I think it is from the dashboard main page. I try, but all my friends get clogged up on it. Theoretically it would give you an idea of what someone is doing compared to your workouts.

Thanks for putting in a ticket and letting us know the status.

Someone from Ubisoft let me know that it is still tracking, but not syncing for some reason. They said it will eventually show and count. I sure hope so; it is motivating when you know your exercise counts for contest entries.

I'm contacting everyone I can about this. No real answers so far. One person on Twitter told me that their workout early in the week didn't track, but their workout a couple of days ago posted on the contest page.

I've personally done three workouts, burning over 200 calories each day and none of them have posted on the contest page. All of them posted fine to the official Your Shape Center page.

Someone at Ubisoft told me that the issue should be ironed out soon, so my fingers are crossed.

I also wrote someone else, asking if they can expand the friends sections on the official Your Shape page. When you use the compare feature, if you have too many friends, you can't see them all.

I also am asking them if there is a way to expand the challenges to include more than just 6 of your friends.

I'm not expecting answers back, because I'm sure they are swamped, but we'll see.

This sounds like an awesome contest, but it would be nice if it worked correctly. It looks like several people are earning entries, but as more people sign up, the average calorie burn total is going way down.

Well, I just wrote them, asking for help. If anyone else does not have their stats show up on the contest site, please let us know. Especially if they are showing up on the Your Shape site and NOT on the contest site.

BTW, Shannonk1222, the gamertag I tried for you didn't work. Would you mind double checking our gamertag thread to see if we have you listed correctly? Thanks! I would love to see you all as I'm online.

lol, yeah it was hard to share the news. Considering only 195 folks were signed up when I shared the link and there are about 200 folks here in this group. lol Oh well, I would much rather see someone from the group win something than some random stranger.

As for the contest, I burned over 200 calories on two separate days and should have earned two entries. My workouts show up on the Your Shape website, but they are not showing up on the contest website. Still says I have burned 0 calories. :(

What is funny, the number of people signed up has increased to over 300. The total calories burned by all people has increased. The top 5 people in this period have also increased their calorie burn. However, the average number of calories burned by all people has dropped significantly.

I know they update the page only a few times a day but at least my workout from a couple days ago should have shown up. Has anyone else had any problem with their workouts not showing up on the contest page?

I noticed last night on the xbox dashboard that there is a Your Shape challenge. The grand prize is a white water rafting trip, safari, etc. They are also giving away microsoft points on a weekly basis and those who burn the most calories have a chance for a Ubisoft game.

The best part, to earn entries, you need to burn 200 calories a day. You can earn a new entry every day.

The site to register is below. I noticed that my workout this morning hasn't logged yet, even though my workout is logged on the Your Shape Center site. I'll have to see if it starts catching up and picks up my "entries".
