Permissions Question/Issue

Some forums are supposed to be “protected” so only the OP and a moderator can respond to a thread. These are “OFFICIAL Answers - Ask the VEX Staff!”, “VRC Sack Attack Official Rules Q&A”, and a few others.

That’s at least the way I understand it is supposed to work. My question is, how did this happen?

Note that Lenny-PR started the thread and chencho-2213 responded. chencho-2213 shouldn’t have been able to respond, right?

I’ve noticed this in the past (forgotten where, though), and it seems to be a relatively new user can respond.

It was an error when permissions were set up. It will be fixed shortly, and thank you for reporting it.
