I've installed this on 3.7 Gold...in the settings page the radio buttons do not remain checked...I hit the save button, and when it refreshes there are no groups chosen, so I logged out and logged in with a regular test account and I was able to post normally.

This is sweet! I force the new members to my community to make their first post as an introduction. Is there any way to force them to make their post in a specific forum?

Better now. The text is pretty small. How can I make it bold and pusht the entire box down a little bit to make it stand out more? It would also be beneficial to make the box smaller. My forum's style is fluid and it looks pretty ugly on a widescreen monitor.

installed!

Edit: My forums are not showing up in the pulldown when the user is asked to confirm. Could this be because of vbSEO?
