Besides the obvious "because they're a hacker" of course.
I have a client using Joomla with JomSocial and they allow their community members to create their own events. They have just updated to Joomla 3.8 and now have folks getting an alert when they try to create an event.
We have tested this with our admin accounts and our testing, non-admin accounts with no issues.
I'm trying to get a screenshot of the error message. In the meantime, any insight would be helpful.
