That's what the first reply to this topic pointed out.
What appears to be another issue is you can't do a global replace / update of permissions. In fact as I have read in other issues posted here, there are issues with doing more then 5 section permission updates at once. This appears to be correct as the updates never work if there are more then 5 set to be changed.
If permissions for several forums are the same you can use the copy permissions option.
But can anyone explain how the setting issue in the Global Moderators group over ruled the fact that my account was the Administrator? Shouldn't the rule be highest denominator rules?
Having admin permissions and having moderator permissions have nothing to do with each other.
Having admin permissions just lets you in to the admin control panel. It doesn't mean you can moderate anything on the board. That comes from having mod permissions.

Or at least a note / text update to warn the admin of the limitation.
It's often server dependent so it doesn't know it's going to happen until you try it.
