      Description

      What I suggest?


      1. ACP -> PERMISSIONS -> PERMISSION ROLES -> User roles
        For user based role "Newly registered User" and it description
        • New Title:

          New Users with no private messages and attachments

        • New Description:

          A user based role for members of the special newly registered users group; contains NEVER permissions to lock private messages and attachments for new users.

      2. ACP -> PERMISSIONS -> PERMISSION ROLES -> Forum roles
        For forum based role "Newly registered User" and it description
        • New Title:

          New Users with post approval

        • New Description:

          A forum based role for members of the special newly registered users group; contains NEVER permissions not allowing post to appear without approval


      Why I suggest?


      I referring to these changes because there is a mess for new phpBB administrators after their first forum's install.

      It is not clear for them:

      • when they go to ACP -> PERMISSIONS -> GLOBAL PERMISSIONS -> Groups' permissions
      • select Newly registered user group
      • see there the option Role: with the name Newly registered User
      • that this role is from PERMISSION ROLES -> User roles and not from PERMISSION ROLES -> Forum roles
        • the same for ACP -> PERMISSIONS -> GLOBAL PERMISSIONS -> Users' permissions

      And in the opposite direction it is not clear for them:

      • when they go to ACP -> FORUM BASED PERMISSIONS -> FORUM PERMISSIONS -> Groups' forum permissions
      • select in Look up usergroup: the Newly registered users group
      • select some forum
      • see there the option Role: with the name Newly registered User
      • that this role is from PERMISSION ROLES -> User roles and not from PERMISSION ROLES -> Forum roles
        • the same for ACP -> FORUM BASED PERMISSIONS -> FORUM PERMISSIONS -> Users' forum permissions
        • the same for ACP -> FORUM BASED PERMISSIONS -> FORUM PERMISSIONS -> Forum permissions

      Where to look?


      1. ACP -> PERMISSIONS -> PERMISSION ROLES -> User roles
        • Name and description for role Newly registered User
        • In language files it is code:

          language/en/acp/permissions.php - line 184

          'ROLE_USER_NEW_MEMBER'          => 'Newly registered User',
          

          language/en/acp/permissions.php - line 210

          'ROLE_DESCRIPTION_USER_NEW_MEMBER'              => 'A role for members of the special newly registered users group; contains <samp>NEVER</samp> permissions to lock features for new users.',
          

      1. ACP -> PERMISSIONS -> PERMISSION ROLES -> Forum roles
        • Name and description for role Newly registered User
        • In language files it is code:

          language/en/acp/permissions.php - line 174

          'ROLE_FORUM_NEW_MEMBER'         => 'Newly registered User',
          

          language/en/acp/permissions.php - line 200

          'ROLE_DESCRIPTION_FORUM_NEW_MEMBER'             => 'A role for members of the special newly registered users group; contains <samp>NEVER</samp> permissions to lock features for new users.',
          


      How fix will look like?


      1. ACP -> PERMISSIONS -> PERMISSION ROLES -> User roles
        • language/en/acp/permissions.php - line 184

          'ROLE_USER_NEW_MEMBER'          => 'New Users with no private messages and attachments',
          

          language/en/acp/permissions.php - line 210

          'ROLE_DESCRIPTION_USER_NEW_MEMBER'              => 'A user based role for members of the special newly registered users group; contains <samp>NEVER</samp> permissions to lock private messages and attachments for new users.',
          

      1. ACP -> PERMISSIONS -> PERMISSION ROLES -> Forum roles
        • language/en/acp/permissions.php - line 174

          'ROLE_FORUM_NEW_MEMBER'         => 'New Users with post approval',
          

          language/en/acp/permissions.php - line 200

          'ROLE_DESCRIPTION_FORUM_NEW_MEMBER'             => 'A forum based role for members of the special newly registered users group; contains <samp>NEVER</samp> contains NEVER permissions not allowing post to appear without approval for new users.',
