What do you need this for?
I'm asking because you can already do something pretty similar with post count based membergroups and permissions...

I get people to post a intro, before i give them the member group. but some members post all over the forums without posting a intro and I don't want them being in the member group if they don't post in the introduction thread.

As I thought, this can be done using permissions only ;)

Some useful readings:
http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Permissions
http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Permissions_-_How_do_I_set_up_post-count_based_membergroup_permissions

Basically, you need to activate permissions for post count based membergroups *AND* the "Deny" permissions --> ACP --> Permissions --> Settings

Then you need to create a Permissions profile to your "Introduction" boards. Copy that profile from Default and apply it to said board.

Then you need to create a post-count based membergroup with 1 post.

Finally you need to edit the "Default" permissions profile and, to the membergroup "Newbie" (the membergroup with 0 posts) you DENY the permission to create topics and reply to posts.

And that's it. Those members cannot post anywhere until they post in your Introductions board ;)
