XF 1.4 Redoing usergroups the right way?

Hello,

When I first opened my forum, I wasn't aware of the "proper way" of setting up usergroups (here). Knowing I made this mistake and have been running my forums since with the wrong implementation of permissions, I now want to change this to the right way. Is there a easy way of doing this without having to redo all usergroups and possibly affecting users and their usergroups they're in?

Thank you.

Suggestion: Create new user groups - then use the user group promotions to automatically place users into the new user groups. Remove the old user groups when all have been migrated.
