Okay, that's easy to solve.
We just make it a requirement for becoming a foundation member. And we
document this requirement on the live pages and in a welcome mail.
If they don't introduce themselves, we just unmember them a few days
I'm guessing the foundation board can make a decision about this? It
doesn't sound to me like something we need to do a vote on ;)
