The rules are made up of member thresholds: forum posts, friends, status updates, days since registered, total groups created, total group admin memberships, total group memberships and total group mod memberships; Also supports the third-party plugin: achievements. S for example you can restrict group creation to members who have more than 10 friends etc.
This plugin was originally created by Rich @ etivite, and has been updated to run on the latest version of WordPress by Venutius.
