User changes to moderator all the time...

Basically this user, who has never been a moderator, gets changed to a moderator every few days. I have made a search, I thought this was a bug and all I had to do was make him a moderator then not make him a moderator, I did this with a usergroup aswell. None of these worked.

The only way, is to go into phpMyAdmin and change his id from 2 to 0. This works but he is reverted back to a moderator with a few days.

Sounds crazy, but true. :) Any ideas?

Hi A_Jelly_Doughnut,

Yes, just the one more.

Make sure he/she isn't doing it.

I can assure you, he isn't.

I also had an instance of newly registered user becoming a Moderator through no fault of his own. I reset his permissions and problem has never recurred.

Have no idea why, there is only one Administrator (me), the user is known and does not have "hacking" ability. Fairly new board, updated to
v 2.0.4.

Any info appreciated.
