Let Moderators promote users/change usergroup



I just switched over from SMF2 and my Moderators need to change user groups manually when people apply for it. (Some kind of whitelist)

Sadly I can't give the moderators such permission, it seems that only admins can change the usergroup of a user.

I tried googling and searching but I just found a "promote users after getting x trophy" addon

Is it possible with any released addon to let my moderators change peoples usergroup or just promote them to a specific usergroup ?

You are correct. Only admins can do that.

I am not aware of any addons for this. I just searched and didn't find anything.

What would be good is a "public joinable group" feature. At least that's what it's called in vB, where users can submit join requests for groups and the group leaders can process those requests. You can post an addon request:
