XF 1.5 User group promotions/demotions


Well-known member
I have a promotion set to this
But it didn't remove the user from the group after they had reached 25 messages.

Promotions are only applied periodically (hourly), so it can take some time for changes to be applied.

I am still having this problem. How long does it usually take for it to remove users from the old group?
As Mike mentioned, the promotion cron is only applied hourly, so that's the sort of time frame for this to occur for active users. However if users aren't active (ie they haven't visited the site for a little while), the promotion changes for them won't occur until they next visit the site. The only way around this is for you to rebuild the user group promotions cache in the ACP.
