How Can We Help?

Assigning Membergroups

You are here:
← All Topics

Anyone can register for a user account on our board, including local and non-local 501st and RL members, spotters, and the general public.

Registered Members 

Registered Members include anyone who appears in the Members list; they have the following minimum access levels:

  • Access to view and reply to topics on all of the boards in the Public Information section
  • Ability to start new topics on all public boards except Public Event Announcements, Public Completed Missions, and Spotter Check In

Registered members should be added to other membergroups depending on which organizations that are a part of.

Steps to Add or Remove Membergroups from a Member’s Profile

  1. Click to view the member’s profile, either from an available post or from the Members list.
  2. From the Modify Profile menu, select Account Related Settings.
  3. In the Primary Membergroup list, select the main group that the person should be part of. This group will appear under the member’s name when posting and on the member’s profile when viewed by others.
  4. Next to Additional Membergroups, click the show additional groups link.
  5. Based on the member’s approved costumes, select the appropriate membergroups. See the table below for exact groups to select.


  • Reserve 501st Legion or Cloud City Garrison members should not be marked as a 501st Legion Member because that membergroup allows access to 501st merchandise that cannot be purchased by reserve members.
  • I normally reselect the primary membergroup in the additional membergroup section, too, to prevent issues in the future if the primary membergroup is changed.
