    How do I set a 'criteria' for people who I want to vote on polls

    Hey guyz

    Every month I host a 'car of the month' compeition, and recently it has turned into a popularity contest with people only registering to vote, never posting, and never coming on the forum again...

    Can I, and how would I, set a minimum post count or the like before people can vote on a particular poll... Note that I don't want this setting active on all polls.

    Thanks guyz

    EDIT: can I specify specific 'usernames' to not be able to vote? [ie, people whose cars are in are of the month].

    1. Create a new usergroup with the appropriate overall permissions:

    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Add New Usergroup

    2. Set the appropriate usergroup permissions for the forum in question:

    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Forum Permissions -> Can Vote on Polls

    3. Create a Promotion to promote users that reach this post level to that group:

    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Promotions
