    I recently signed up for membership for the TFCC. I got their email explaining everything about what is going to happen(i.e. getting the newsletter starting Feb. 2008 and other stuff). I am having trouble signing into the site and it's giving me an error message that I am not in the database and I am not recognized as a member. Does anyone know what I can do so I can sign in? It says on the email that my membership doesn't start til the next issue is out. Is this true? I hope not cuz I want to get my hands on TFCC Astrotrain. I appreciate any help you guys give me.

    You need to wait to get your first issue of the club magazine. There will be a number on the address label that lets you get online access.

    Damn!!! What I feared has come true... I guess, I have to wait. I only hope that they don't sell out of Astrotrains..

    Looks like you did get lucky. If you do happen to remember what you did, please let me know.

    I got the same problem right now. Guess I'll wait for the first issue also. If you get any new results make sure you post them :D

    Did you guys get an e-mail from TFCC with instructions on how to create your account after you paid? They sent me an e-mail the day after I paid for my membership with my expiry so I can create my account. Thats where I had problems, I kept trying to create my account and I kept getting the user does not exsist. I waited a couple of days, tried again and still a no go. Since I am in Canada I tried doing it with Non-US and US and switched up the dates and eventually my account was created. Keep trying or call customer service is the only piece of advice I can offer.

    Oh and the Astrotrain & Air Razor are sold out. They had a special going on this week buy both for $99.

    I haven't gotten an email from them on how to create it. I guess I should wait til I get the email or I get my issue.

    And yes, the Astrotrain/Airazor special is sold out, but I looked on the site and Astrotrain itself is still for sale, I hope....

    From what I checked, they only have about 20 Astrotrains and 20 Airazors. I hope can log in soon enough so I can snatch them before they sell out... *hopes he can log in soon*

    By the sound of it, you should go active this month according to the email. So once you get your issue, you can log in.

    I signed up two weeks ago and can get in. I called them and asked them what my expiration for the club magazine was and they further activated my account. And in doing so I was told that within 24-48 hours they would have me in the database and my expiration would work to login. Then after a few days got the email but I was already in the system.

    I had that problem when I first signed up too, I ended up calling FP and talking to one of them and even though it took a few days and multiple calls they did fix it.

    FP's online stuff is severally bad - ask anyone. Their sites are old and outdated beyond belief. However - their phone and email customer service is top notch. Angie has been super-friendly and helpful to me and to others. Just fire an email or give them a call, and I'm sure they'll help you out.

    As for the Astrotrain, don't worry, they have tons. Working with their cart they have over 1000 each of them still in stock (their store works differently than most - if you put in too many, it just jumps down to add only 20, instead of the actually number in stock - to test, try to add 1000 Astrotrains, then empty your cart, then try to add 1200 Astrotrains).

    I got an email from the club giving me an expiration date. I tried logging in and it still says i am not recognized. I also see that email address is not mine and it's someone elses. Should I give them a call tomorrow?

    I would. Although, if you got the email, they obviously have your correct email address.

    If I remember correctly, I was confused like you were, and called them, and they told me it'd probably start working in a week or so, and it did.
