I may have missed this in the 7.6 updates, but one standing issue with this feature is if say a member is in a group set to be moderated for 20 posts then promoted to a non moderated group.
It just counts the raw number of posts regardless if the posts are approved or rejected or still in queue to be moderated.
it just promotes the member to the next group after 20 posts total.

All other permission settings per group seem to work the same.
Meaning 20 raw posts=promote
probably a limitation of the data fields in the tables does not have a placeholder for counting approved posts..
Or we are counting the posts from the wrong field or table.

I'm pretty sure that it wouldn't be an easy task, as I don't believe there's a mechanism in place to wait to attribute a post to ones overall post count until after it is approved.

that is why I asked if this was addressed in 7.6.
I did not read anything about it
