Forum for CUNY Academic Commons Team is gone
I've tried on IE, Chrome, and Firefox, and it appears that the forum for CUNY Academic Commons Team is gone. The error message is "This group does not currently have a forum."

Apparently, this is happening for other users. We just received the following report:
I created a new group yesterday--The GC Running Group--and indicated in the group settings that I wanted to have a forum, but currently on the forum page I get three notices: "This forum is empty," "Oh bother! No topics were found here!" and "You cannot create new topics." I tried to uncheck and recheck the enable forum setting, but I have not seen a change in the forum notices and I still cannot create a new topic. I feel like I must be overlooking something, but after poking around a while, I can't figure it out!

I'm not 100% sure what's happening here. At some point, I may have disabled the bbPress-auto-role feature, because it appears (yet again) like it's the source of various lost-permission bugs around the Commons. It looks like this config change might be what's causing the forum problem described in this ticket. I thought I'd then try to work around the hardcoded "Participant" requirement of bbPress, but after a few hours of investigation, I don't know how to do it - bbPress is doing something that I don't understand. So, I've reenabled the auto-role feature, and group forums are now accessible in the same way as before.
