Only our Staff, Interns, and Clients can access certain private forums. If you are an Author or Artist with The Grumpy Dragon, be sure to apply for the appropriate "role" in your "My Account" settings. If you have already applied but have not been approved after several days, please email email@example.com with your username, passphrase, and real name. DO NOT send your password!!! We get a lot of spammers applying for access and you good folks occasionally get lost in the pile.
If you are a staff member or intern, let us know and we will set your account accordingly (these roles are not in the application system yet). Staff members and interns do not need the Client roles to access the private forums.
