I've never been a fan of forums that force you to make an introduction thread. It will just fill that board up, and then we have a problem with even more people that just go through and spam in that board.

Does it already display a "read FAQ" thing at the top when you are first a member? That should direct them to the FAQ's which will help them with posting.
I think that is all we can do. It wouldn't be right to force them to post, as minty said, so I guess we will just have to live with it for a bit.
Is it really that bad? I normally see 1 wrong section post from someone knew per day.
EDIT: Gah I read your question wrong...
Well, if they start to spam, then they should be dealt with properly. However, some new members are just confused, and the FAQ should help with that.
