    I would like to add additional promotion criteria to some of my usergroups, but not have it demote current members.

    Is this possible with the XF core?

    If the members who have been promoted do not meet the revised criteria, they will be demoted.

    I think you can do manual changes in the admin CP (User Group Promotions -> Manage Promoted Users). I believe you would have to demote them and then manually repromote them though.

    This is exactly what I want to avoid.

    We're a very old forum, some of our members achieved our highest ranks when we were on vBulletin. These ranks required a high amount of reputation to achieve, something that wasn't imported due to Xenforo's lack of a reputation system.

    I would like to set other promotion requirements to achieve our high level ranks, but it would be unfair to demote our current members by adding additional criteria. Is there any other way to do this?
    Thanks for you reply Mike. But we have thousands of members. Not really an option.

    As Mike said, you can manually promote them.

    The manual labor is really the only method that's built-in.

    Does anyone know of any add-ons that provide this function, or something similar?

    How about having 2 usergroups with the same permissions?
    Leave the old members in the current usergroup and create a new usergroup with the new promotions setup.
