The Question Club
So in my community, every time we get 50 additional members, I want to open up posting access to all members for like 2 days or something (currently, only mods can post). Well, every time I've done it in the past, I went to the "Settings" page and checked "All Members" under "Who Can Post", but no one ever posted. I must have gone through this like 3-4 times at each +50 members. Finally, a member messaged and told me that everytime I announced temperary-open-membership, it wasn't open for them. So I went to the members page, and under "Posting Access", none of the members' names were checked besides the mods. Even though I had changed it under settings.
So what's the deal? Do I have to check them all manually or something? I have over 350 members, that's gonna be so annoying.
Apologies for the tl;dr
ETA for those who are confused: Basically, when I change the Settings for my comm to allow All Members to post, apparently it doesn't work because when I look at the members list, the only members who have "Posting Access" checked off are the mods, which is who I normally give posting access to. But every once in a while I want to open posting access to all members. So what gives? Do I have to check off 350+ names manually?
