To make launching your new site easier, you are in bootstrap mode. All new users will be granted trust level 1 and have daily email summary emails enabled. This will be automatically turned off when 50 users have joined.
is displayed at the top of my site, which I have configured to require signup approval, and new users are still starting out with trust level 0, meaning no one can post on a site with no posts to read to get promoted to tl1. Is it possible that I have changed a setting that is interfering with bootstrap mode?
