That makes me think there may be one or two (or more) separate privilege settings controlling those actions. Omph, Freak or Ragabash will have to look at the admin controls and confirm this, but isn't there a setting for determining which group all new registrants go into?
So set up a "newbie" group and give that group permissions to start new threads ONLY in the Introduce Yourself forum, and to post replies to existing threads in any other forum. That way they can introduce themselves and ask questions and beginning participating in ongoing discussions right away.
If the boardware allows it, that seems a fair compromise, no?
I think you can set the boardware to do that, but I really don't understand what the big deal is. It's not like Jacurutu is getting bombarded with retards on a daily basis.
