Sooo ... figured out why permissions are wrong. The dev server was 64-bit and the production web boxes are only 32-bit (even though blud assured me they would be duplicates of the dev environment -- grr). Scrambling to figure out what to do now ...

Darn bit sets!

Are you talking about moderator permissions? I have not seen a permissions problem.

Try sending a PM ;)

Or disabling advertising ... or ... ;) There are about 10 permissions that don't work right now.

Cannot send PM still.

Tried to ban AD but there is still no option to do that ;p

Still no smilies

You can issue him a 20 point infraction.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to get my smiley parser to play nice with code tags. I'm still playing around with it.

[EDIT]: Hey I just edited a post --- how 'bout that!!!! Looks like I can also ban this person -- WaltP[/EDIT]
