View Full Version : Need access to the Monkey Island private forum?
06/01/2009, 03:44 pm
I preordered Tales of Monkey Island but when I try to click on the link that was sent in my email for the secret forum it just brings me to my purchases page.
Is the site available yet or is something broken?
06/02/2009, 04:38 pm
Hey, I bought TOMI and everything, but the secret forum hasn't appeared? I heard it's because of a database hiccup, so I was hoping you guys could help me out? Thanks.
06/02/2009, 05:22 pm
You should be able to see it now!
06/02/2009, 05:25 pm
thanks so much. I apologize for being hasty, as I know you're really busy managing the new bugs. I just wanted to make sure my purchase worked out properly. :D

I'm having the same problem and would really appreciate a fix :)
06/03/2009, 07:15 am
Others having this problem, please email email@example.com - it's easier for us to keep track of the request and make sure it gets fixed that way.

Hey guys, I'm one of a few pre-orders for Tales of Monkey Island that can't see the Private forum. Just letting you know. Thanks. I really want to get in there and check stuff out!
06/03/2009, 07:22 pm
I'm in the same boat (please ignore the bad pirate-related pun).
06/03/2009, 07:43 pm
I e-mailed firstname.lastname@example.org with the same issue and it was resolved in under 24 hours. :)
06/03/2009, 08:27 pm
Hey guys, you should be sorted out now. :)
Sorry for not seeing this thread sooner!
06/03/2009, 09:06 pm
Please fix it for me too! I'd really appreciate it!

Secret Forum:Hello! My name secret Forum and I wanna become a pirate!
Frozyme:Huh? Dont sneak on me!
Secret Forum:Eh... I'm over here.
06/03/2009, 10:48 pm

many thanks emily.....well excited about tmi CANT WAIT!!!!
06/06/2009, 04:01 am
I can't access the secret forum either. When follow the link Emily gave in this thread, I encounter an error:
"markotu, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation."
06/06/2009, 04:11 am
I've same problem.
06/06/2009, 04:15 am
Wierd... I got this whole forum account because I preordered TMI, but no access.
Could you please fix my account as well Emily?
06/06/2009, 04:42 am
Hey, I have the same problem also, would appreciate a fix, thankyou.
06/06/2009, 04:58 am
I've preordered and it won't let me access that page either :(
06/06/2009, 05:44 am
Yes me too...
I have preordered the game but I can't access the forum... not from my mail and not from this link above...
06/06/2009, 09:17 am
Melancton, markotu, kblood, MattJColes, El Butcherino: you should be sorted out now!
Edit: Frostbite and Koudanshi too!
06/06/2009, 11:48 am
I`m having the same problem: "-TWH-, you do not have permission to access this page." so no "secret" forum for me yet :(
06/06/2009, 02:33 pm
I just pre-ordered the game... received the confirmation email, but accessing private pirate forum is impossible at the moment :-(
06/06/2009, 04:22 pm
I have the same problem as markotu.
06/07/2009, 09:10 am
Same problem for me: I recieved confirmation email but no access to private forum
Thanks in advance :)
06/07/2009, 03:19 pm
-TWH-, Tommy_, BenThrottle, bimatteo: You should be good to go now.
06/08/2009, 08:20 am
Same problem for me
06/08/2009, 12:38 pm
Same here. Can't access the hidden forum after pre-ordering.
06/08/2009, 03:23 pm
Didn't know if I should mail you or post it here, so I am trying with the easiest and lazy one, being the forums, can I get access to the hidden forum?
Pre-ordered not long ago and opened the link in the mail but it redirected me and the sub-forum doesn't appear.
Email support (mailto:email@example.com).
They get a notification right away, the forums are checked from time to time.
06/08/2009, 04:44 pm
Thanks jmm I followed your advise and sent an email.
06/08/2009, 05:02 pm
Sobuno, vEX, DarkCrisis, you should have access now!
06/08/2009, 05:08 pm
Alhazred, you're in!
06/08/2009, 06:07 pm
06/09/2009, 06:29 am
Sorry, but same problem here. It seems like this is happening to lots of people, any idea why?
06/09/2009, 07:59 am
Same issue, sent an e-mail but got no response (yet). Could somebody please fix it?
edit: Seems to be fixed now, thanks!
06/09/2009, 08:24 am
I have the same issue, i have sent an email just now :)
I'm the same, i cant access it. The link takes me to the purchases page which appears to be a dead end. I've also email support. Sorry to be a pain, im sure this is an ongoing nightmare for you admins.
06/10/2009, 04:49 am
Also I can't see the forum but I did preorder... hmm my coupon code I got isn't working either :S I get the message that it is invalid :S
I'm also having the problem of not seeing the pre-order forum, though I did pre-order :)
Like GoT, I also got redirected to the purchases page from the link.
06/10/2009, 02:57 pm
It's difficult for us to deal with this issue when people post about it on the forums. If you pre-ordered and are not seeing the Private Pirates forum, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know:
1) Your order number, username, or the email address you used to place the order
2) If you received a confirmation email after placing your order
3) If Tales of Monkey Island shows up on your My Games (http://www.telltalegames.com/mytelltale/purchases) page
4) If you had a forum username before ordering Tales of Monkey Island, or only created one after placing the order
We are working hard to get this issue resolved and to get everyone taken care of. If you haven't received a response from a human being in 48 hours (as opposed to the auto-response, which comes in automatically), please send a PM to David (http://www.telltalegames.com/forums/private.php?do=newpm&u=12342) and he can look up your support ticket.
Thanks for your patience as we get this worked out!
