    User group changes with password change

    Hey,

    After the 26th post, and about an hour, my user group was bumped up and I started editing my profile. And I changed my password, which immediately removed privileges and I start seeing the same super annoying "you do not have permission to access this page" message

    Thanks for your help

    When you change your e-mail you need to deal with the confirmation e-mail sent to you, that will move your usergroup.

    Hey, thanks. There was a delay till the confirmation popped up in my inbox. I'm not sure if I understand the point of this policy though.

    It's a security feature. Most (all?) forum software requires you to verify your email account whether on first registration or after changing the email address.
