Yeah it would make snese for them to post in an existing thread but they are instructed to post on the forum by bullet point 1.
Who Can Access:
As a registered member of the Public Preview Program, these forums are now available for you to discuss the program with others that are also registered. These are restricted forums so people outside of the preview program will not be able to
access the content. The GamerTag that you used to register into the program is the only authorized participant.
Frequently Asked Question:
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
[/quote]Unfortunately it would seem that many have taken that to mean creating their own thread. If the mods delete the thread however that person's 'presence' will be removed and they'll again have problems.
It's best just to ignore it for a while, things will calm down in a few days.
