Access to Xbox Live Preview Forums !!help!!

Ah this is a mess...when I tried to sign up for Microsoft Connect to gain access to the Xbox live preview program I couldn't get it to accept my account attached to my gamer profile (TacticalTimbo) for whatever reason. I therefore tried another account of mine with more success and proceded to enter my gamer tag (TacticalTimbo) with no apparent issues. However when I today clicked the link to access the preview forums, it just asked for my first name (i thought weird, but whatever) and created a new gamer profile. I figured okay, I'll sign out and back in with my actual account, with the common link connecting my preview access and my actual gamer profile being my gamer tag, but alas no cigar. What do I do????

Relax it's just to post a forum and talk to other gamer who don't have the preview if you read it correctly it's not to put your consol Id yet

God these forums are terrible, so slow, no way to reply to individual posts and seriously is there no way to quick link to posts/threads you've made!?

@PrettyArtistic I know it's not yet the console registration stage but it's not an invitation to a forum for preview outsiders either...that's what this this area of the forum is for; basically you've not made any attempt to answer my question whatsoever...you've just spread misinformation...GREAT!!

Okay, my idea was to transfer my gamer tag to the account I've set up for Microsoft Connect and then try...or do you guys just think I should wait for a bit?

Also getting a groups not found message - I just re-submitted the gamer tag, maybe it'll get picked up again?

I don't really know what resubmitting the GamerTag will do if you didn't make a mistake in the spelling. Should we do that anyways?

Here's what's on the preview site:

Q. Why can't I access the Private Forum link above?

A. The Private Forums require us to use the GamerTag you provided during program registration. Make sure you are using that GamerTag.

If you are still unable to access it, likely there was a typo when you submitted it or you'd never previously accessed the regular xbox.com forums. Below are some steps to get you fixed up:

1.    Log into xbox.com and post in the standard forums so that you create a presence within the forums

2.    Resubmit your GamerTag via the survey section on Connect

Once submitted it takes ~5 business days for us to update the permissions for you to access the Private Forums

So if you've never made a post here before, posting then resubmitting should solve the problem.

It seems that very few people have access to this. Very odd rollout.

Visit:

connect.microsoft.com/.../Surveys

From here select:

Resubmit GamerTag for Xbox LIVE Update Preview Forum access

From there you will have to wait up to 5 days before it cant take effect, but then again could take less.

Hope this helps and you get your issue resolved,

Brad.
