Changing User Groups Structure - What's the right way?


Well-known member
When we were on vBulletin, we had several usergroups. I had created about 15 user-groups corresponding to ranks. Those got carried over to Xenforo during import. I'm now planning to switch to a much simpler structure -

  1. Admins
  2. Mods
  3. Registered
  4. Banned
  5. Unregistered / Guests
  6. Group - I
  7. Group - II
  8. Group - III
I wish to know, what is the right way to make this change? Should I just delete the custom usergroups -> then create new usergroups -> set promotion?

It's up to you.

You can continue using the custom usergroups which were created during the import or you can delete them and create new ones.

It won't make any difference.
