Details on how to join special membership groups: Step 1: Have an account. If you don't already have an FXGears account, register for one. You can't lurk boards that require membership without one. Step 2: Once logged in, click the "Profile" link you see at the top of any given page. From the profile link, select "Group Memberships" from the left menu. From the Group Memberships page, select "Request Membership" on the desired membership group. Step 3: In some cases, you will need to be approved for membership by the person(s) organizing the group. If this is the case, you will then be asked to write a message to the group organizer(s) detailing why you want or require access. The group organizer(s) will then approve or deny your request. If anyone has trouble with this process, please feel free to PM me about it. Cheers!
