    We've been getting reports that users who appear to meet the criteria to post in the forums unmoderated and post/reply to the ISO:FT beer trading forum are still unable to. I investigated this morning and discovered that user promotions failed as recently as last Friday. Upon further digging it appears that there's a bug with the user promotion script that runs hourly.

    Luckily it's a known bug with a fix, which I applied this morning. It just ran about 20 mins ago and it appears that users who meet the criteria are now being promoted without issue.

    Sorry for any confusion this caused. It confused the hell out of me too.

    Psychmusic, Levitation and libbey like this.

    Recent site maintenance overwrote these updates. I've reapplied them.

    Those who were having issues should be all set to post now; criteria to post still apply.
