This will disallow members with no permissions to view forums/threads/posts/links through normal view, printthread, search, archive, thread preview. Note that you can set Forum/Thread Permissions for each forum/sub-forum separately. Screenshot shows additional options in Forum Manager and error messages shown to user when trying to view restricted area.

[B]How it works and why it's better than vB Promotions system?![/B]
Forum is shown on forumhome but with "Locked" icon and if you have no needed post count you'll get "no permission" error message. When you set this via vB Promotions system forum is hidden on forumhome and you must create additional usergroup to make all this working. When user collect needed amount of posts he will be able to access protected forum immediately. When you set this via vB Promotions system then user must wait until Promotions task is executed ... then he will be able to access protected forum. How much time user must wait it depends on settings in AdminCP/Scheduled Tasks... and if you set this to run every minute it pushes your server. If you set it to 2 or more minutes then user must wait more and more... and nobody like it.
