I have recieved a few mails from people saying they are a member but are unable to post OR download of the board.
On the 15 I have checked...In ALL cases this was because the user did not click on the confirmation email that was sent back to them.
So this needs to be done before you can use the facilities at SM.
Also if you cannot download the VIP tutorials - It means that you have NO points left! Go here to buy some: http://www.simplymaya.com/payment.mhtml
If you have correctly registered via clicking on the link in the email sent to you then its a cookie problem or likewise your end.
I am sorry but I do not have the time to go to every user and give them access manually.
