    Instead of going through 10 usergroups individually and set permission for all. Why cannot we just do all that at once ? I remember Vbulletin had this ability.

    Can we please consider this for 1.3. I love batch update users tho.

    ok that make sense.. but in order to fix that.. I am gonna have to go through all usergroup and setup each accordingly.

    Just for complete clarification, can you solve this scenario ?

    I have three usergroups. All members have primary usergroup set to "Registered"
    User more than 100 posts have secondary user group "Active"
    Users more than 300 posts have another secondary group "senior"

    Now, I wanna have max time limit to edit a post set to 0 for registered, 10 mins for active and 20 mins for senior.

    so now if user xyz is part of all three usergroups, how would system know which time limit rule to apply ?

    The highest setting will apply for someone in all 3 groups ie 20mins.

    so technically, highest value will take over ?
    how about if I say Registered member can have font size 3 in signature, active 2 and senior 1. Logically, it should apply 1 to user with all three usergroups.

    I think "Display Styling Priority" should take over in these condition rules as well.

    The highest value always takes priority. So you should always set the lowest value for the registered group and higher for secondary groups.

    For Display Styling Priority the highest value also applies.

    You will most likely have to do what I did (also from VB) use the user promotions for newer groups - Then tier up to each user group, I have Senior, V.I.P and Gold - new users are set under user trophies until they reach 5 posts - keeps spam down. It works for me like this anyway.

    Here is what my user groups look like, everyone is a "registered user" for permission purposes.

    I had this setup as well, but now I messed up everything. Some users are not even part of Registered Usergroup.

    I will see if I can fix all this using batch user update option. It seems to be working pretty good.
