I remember that at some point I added a few friends to a "restricted list". Things seem to have changed now and I cannot seem to find a way to edit these settings.

Whenever I post something, next to the post it says "Shared with: your friends".

However, when a friend, say Bob, tags me and the post appears on my profile, it says:

This is Bob's post. It's been shared with: Bob's friends, and some of Xavier's friends

(Xavier is me). When I drill down, it says:

Who can see this?
On your timeline: Friends; Except: X, Y and Z
Everywhere else: Bob's friends and some of Xavier's friends

Now I wonder what I can change so that X, Y and Z can see these posts. These people seem to only be added to normal friend lists. Also, my "Restricted" friend list seem to be empty.

Check what you have set in your Timeline and Tagging Settings. There is a setting there labeled "Who can see posts you've been tagged in on your timeline?" You can set both a "Share this with" and "Don't share this with" list. Payouts may have added X, Y and Z in there.
