And just how do you "sign up"?? Does it mean message board...or newsletter??

Hi BertoneBeatle, This message board and the main site are two separate registrations. If you were a member at the main site (basic or premium) and are currently receiving the monthly newsletter e-mails (What's That You're Doing?), you are successfully signed up at the main site. The e-mail address that you would use to sign in at the main site to access pre-sales is the e-mail address at which you are currently receiving the monthly newsletter. If you are not currently receiving notifications from the main site (newsletter, pre-sale notifications, etc.), you may sign up at the main site by clicking on the following link:

Sign up to receive information on news, releases, tour dates, pre-sales and much more...

Hope this helps. Anita
