Certainly I'm not the only person receiving this. I have received this error in trying to vote and navigating to the Black Eagle Shop. I'm logged in, see that I'm logged in and am able to update my profile.

Re: Access Denied

Hi Lori!  I'm sorry you're having difficulties.  The key to this problem is that you're using a public forum account, not connected to your membership.  Only members are allowed to vote (naturally) and the store is also only available to members (because of BMW logo issues).  

If you could tell me either your name or membership number (and you can PM me if you don't want to put it out in the public forum) I'd be happy to get your accounts put together into one that will allow you to vote.

Also, for anyone looking over our shoulders here, this is sadly not going to be a rare occurance.  The old site didn't integrate member information with the forum, so there are a fair number of people who have ended up with a public account copied over from the old forum and a separate account for their membership.  There just wasn't any way to figure out that they went together. 

So, if this turns out to be your situation as well, don't hesitate to either PM me (button in the left column next to this post) or use the contact form for website feedback.  I will try to turn these around as quickly as I can.
