Hi Peter,

I think Paul's issue was a special case because he previously had an
account participating in the CG but he changed his affiliation.

In the case of Volker and Jason, I understand they created new accounts
to join the CG so they should be able to access
https://www.w3.org/community/mathonwebpages/join
and join the CG.

If that's not the case, do let me know and I'll investigate.

Regards,

Denis
