    Hi there,

    Unfortunately, I'm having problems with User Promotions similar to that raised here, here and here.

    I would like new accounts to have their first five posts moderated, prior to then being validated to post without moderation.

    So, I followed this here (User Group Promotions) to do just that but unfortunately, members are having their posts sit in a moderating queue after they've had 5 messages approved.

    I don't think I've set it up wrong but to rule out human error;


    I have waited for the Cron to run, I then ran it manually and logged in (understand a user is required to login before a promotion takes effect) but no joy - members are still having their posts moderated.

    I saw this post by @Brogan but I don't have an Akismet key.

    Any help really would be welcome

    You have used Never for the Registered group.
    Never can't be overridden.

    As the manual page states:
    See this for help with setting up permissions: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/implementing-permissions-across-multiple-user-groups.358/
