    Mass move the users into the registered usergroup, their permissions will be reset.

      Can you point me in the right directions for this? I cannot find where to do this all at once.

        I think i have found it, but i cannot move them. On the bottem of the screen it says
        Users marked with the [ ! ] button are not editable using this system.
        they all have that.?

          Are these users from a custom usergroup?

            Unfortunately Admins cannot be moved with the Mass Move function. I don't know why but I have verified this is normal behaviour.

              I am imagining that my problem is caused because i have imported my users into a couple of different programs as i have tried other things. I think that one of the phpnuke/oscommerce cms's i tried made this change in the database. The question is now how do i get it back the way it should be.

                That depends. Which usergroupid are they in? And is your Admin user in the same group?

                  I believe so, although somehow i ended up with 2 of my user names, sort of.
                  One has a wierd addon to the name "imported_sweetquads" that one has all of my posts ect. and is in a different group "Moderators" Then there is just a plain ol "sweetquads" with no posts ect, that one is in the administrators group with 99% of the other users. I have no idea why i have 2 names or why one of them has "imported" in front of the name.
                  Real quick i just wanted to say thanks for trying to help out.

                    Ok. so i cant mass move admins, and since i have over 2300 users i dont want to think about doing one by one. Is there a place in the database that i could trick vb into thinking that the admin are some other group then move them?, like 1=admin 2=reg user 3=guest then just temporarily change the 1 to 3 move them to 2 using the mass move then go back and change the admin back and maybe fix my account?
                    Sorry if this is way stupid, i am just grasping at straws, i obviously have no idea what im doing.

                      You never told me what usergroupid they are in and if your Admin user is in the same group.
