    Do you use this modification on your forums? In what circumstances do you use it if so?

    I have it, but very rarely use it.
    Only times Ive used it was to check what the user is able to view.

    What other things can be done by using it?

    I can imagine a lot of people finding it handy when creating a new user to test out user perms as well as to see the bugs theyre seeing in their usergroup.

    Checking to see if IF conditionals are working for specific usergroups too.

    Ahh yes, thats what I use it for :)

    Wasn't sure if you were going to unleash a whole list of other things that can be done with it LOL.

    Yeah, I use it. I only use it to do some stuff that one of my mods can not do, though, or doesn't understand how to ;)

    I use it as well for various things, such as checking permissions and troubleshooting users' accounts (i.e. when they don't know how to "accept forum rules" and therefore cannot create posts).
