    So say I have Registered Users with a PM inbox limit of 100.

    User bob has a primary group of Registered Users and is also a member of the usergroups:

    UG1
    UG2 and
    UG3

    all of which were based off of Registered Users so each usergroup still has the setting PM inbox limit = 100.

    If I got back and set the PM inbox limit (or anything else, like Can Delete Post from True to False) on Registered Users to 50, because the UG's still have the inbox limit of 100, bob still has a limit of 100. So that means that I then have to go touch each UG and edit it as well to reflect that change?

    Still confused on some points of forum permissions

    Greetings all, I guess I have some confusion and was wondering if someone could help me understand how to correctly apply permissions to forums.

    We have a forum with several sub-forums for people in our community. Each sub-forum has an associated usergroup that is allowed access into the forum. When we create a new sub-forum, we create a new usergroup and in the usergroup creation page we base the group off the Registered Users group.

    But now we want to apply a change to the Registered Users group to limit some functionality. However because there are potentially a couple dozen usergroups based off that original group that users belong to, do I have to go through and touch every single one of those groups to make the same change so that users don't inherit the more liberal setting of the other usergroups?

    Am I missing something easier to control users' access to these sub-forums?

    Thanks
