On the left side, near the bottom, it should say "Groups". You should have a group there with members in it. If not, I don't have an answer for you. At least you know the forum is still private. You need help from someone at Network54 for this one, it would seem. I honestly don't think groups get transferred, but somehow this forum retained its group priveleges.
