So,  I'm just curious here....

I'm updating one of my sites that offered downloads for any registered member. As I was on version 8, I'm upgrading to version 9 on this site with some major changes to the layout and design.

One thing I am changing also is now points are required to download stuff so there's more site participation. I've also set up some fun usergroup titles that members can progress to when they reach certain points levels.

Here's my question:

Will members drop usergroup ranks if they spend enough points that push them back?

For example, let's say a member has 500 points and jumped a rank to a new usergroup title. Then they see a download they like and spend points on it. And they spend 50 points which brings their points level down to 450.

Will they drop back down to that title that they were in and will need 50 points more to reach that new rank title and usergroup? Or will they remain in that new usergroup until they reach the next points level?

Members will not lose rank when points decrease. They will remain until the next points level (or you change their rank, either up or down). :thumbs:

Thanks. Didn't want to test it out if I didn't have to.
