We have a few wikis where, even though a person can create an account,
they are unable to create/write pages unless their username appears
in the wiki page:
This file has to have lines like:
    #acl AuthorsGroup:read All:
     * GeorgeBush
     * GordonBrown
We have a group called AdminGroup that contains the administrators
of the wiki.   They are listed in the wiki page:
These people do not need to appear in the AuthorsGroup file.

The wiki is configured as follows:
    acl_rights_before = u"AdminGroup:read,write,delete,revert,admin"
    acl_rights_default = u"AuthorsGroup:read,write All:read"

The front page of the wiki has some text like:
    If you wish to write to this wiki, please e-mail XXXX
When a person e-mails asking to be permitted to create/write pages,
we just add a line:
     * FirstnameLastname
to the wiki page:
and then advise the person to create an account with the username:

I'm unable to help you with this.
