    Promotions are run hourly by a cron, they are not instant.

    In addition, promotions only apply to recently active members (for performance reasons). For members who haven't been active recently any promotions will be applied when they next log in,

    Rebuild the user group promotions cache in the ACP (use the search to find it) to apply the promotions to everyone now. After that though, as I said in my last post:

    What's annoying about it? It's not totally clear what the issue is here.

    It's really not annoying. Let's take this scenario:

    You site has been up for two months. Yesterday you set up the promotion once a user reaches three posts. Now, within a hour, any one that has been active within the past two hours, gets promoted.

    Anyone that has not been active in the past two hours does not get promoted. They will get promoted once they become active again and the cron runs.

    If that does not suit your needs, you need to hire someone to make a addon for you to do what you wish.

    You sound kind of suprised, or disappointed? But the same thing applies to all platforms. Anything that an user wants, that can not be done with the built in features of said platform, it will need custom developement.
