Apparently we don't have the Registered Users permissions inherently attached to the Great Old One usergroup like we did on the old version of the forum. If one's usergroup is changed from Registered Users to anything else, a tick box for Registered Users as a secondary group must be checked to ensure no loss of permissions.
Nope! I lurked for some time before I signed up. I were active for some months, then back to lurking, then shit happened. This year I dusted off my account and became a very dedicated shitposter and active member.
And a nuisance too.
