I have one of my site collections that the sub-site owners can no longer add users.  They have full control, nothing got changed that I can find.  Each site has it's own groups for owners, visitors and members.

Log in as a site collection admin, take a look at the properties of one of the groups.  Who is authorized to add users?  who is the group owner?

I found the peroblem.  At the top level of a site collection, people and groups.  Editing the advanced settings of that list (all people/users) I had tried to stop people from editing user information and adding attachments.  Well, you can turn off attachments, but not set the edit user information to none.  I turned that back on and it was fine.

Thanks
