[F] Additional Group Deletion [C-Chris] - labrocca - 2008-11-09

It appears if you delete a group it doesn't get removed from a users additionalgroups column in database.
Oh and it appears that the group is still in the promotion system too.
Additional side-effect problem...

Since it's not deleted from additionalgroups I noticed that the usergroup cache isn't any permissions still would exists in the forums.

I don't think we can properly remove it easily from the promotions - I've added the usergroups/forum perms cach rebuilding and removing it from additional groups, but that's all.

Will the promotion still occur then if it's not deleted? Is there a check to make sure the usergroup actually exists before it promotes?

Well now that it is removed from additionalgroups, usergroup, and displaygroup then any SQL query executed against the user database won't return a result set for that deleted usergroup
