    None of the group affiliations y'all are complaining about allow you better access to the site. Just remove yourselves from those 'offensive' user groups and nothing will change but your user title. We don't like the current system either, but there's nothing we can do about it until someone writes a better mod for it. It's a pain in our collective butts at this point. If you want full control over your user group, you'll just have to Go Red or learn to live with it.

    "Join user group" didn't show me as belonging to solo divers. I joined and exited. Let's see if that worked.

    Yep. That did it.

    Sorry, I overlooked this post last month. You're now a Solo Diver.

    It's not a "bot" it's an affiliation with the highest level user group selected. As mentioned by Netdoc - some of them are defaults in the groups module and can't normally be over-ridden except by selecting a different group.

    I'm happy to be a barracuda (so fancy!), but just an fyi...I don't necessarily think that the logic is completely working as I do belong to a couple of groups....unless I'm missing something?

    Barracuda is the default based on your post count.

    Not every group has an affiliated title so that will remain if you join(ed) one of those groups.

    If you join a group that has an associated title there is a hierarchy so it will change.

    What does joining a group do (other than possibly changing your title)? Is there a secret forum for each group that you can only see by joining that group or something?
