    So im getting paid soon and i know im going to purchase a license for XenForo. Here is my first question, so i tried the XenForo demo and i saw in the users tag a auto promotion section, i tried to figure out if i can set it up on the version i buy where if they add something to there profile like the custom user fields to there profile it will add them to a primary group that i want to setup have more access to. My second question is, if a user is in the regular user group and i create a premium user for the secondary and create a section where only the premium users can post, will it allow them to post there even though they have both the regular and premium user tag? My last question is, so i saw that you had little notices like

    How do i do it, i tried to on the demo version but i had no luck if you can explain because this will really help me get set up as fast as possible.

    Thanks for reading

    Yes, that is possible with custom user fields and user group promotions.
    It would be added as a secondary user group though.

    Permissions are cumulative, so yes.

    The screenshot is of a Notice.
    Our help manual explains how to set them up: https://xenforo.com/help/notices/

    There will be plenty of people who can help with that once you are licensed and can post in the customer support forums.

    It's easy to do.. it's exactly what I do with a couple of Motorcycle group memberships. Depending on the if you select that option, it will put you into a certain group (HOG, Darksider, Patriot Guard, etc) which then also gives you access to certain forum nodes specific to those groups and then awards a trophy that gets displayed on the users postbit.
