You can do it by acls

acl_rights_before = u"YourName:read,write,admin,delete,revert"
acl_rights_default = u"UserGroup:read,write All:read"

and on the page UserGroup you can add a acl line which gives only you
write rights.

Then the newbies have to ask you to become added to that page and only
users on that page have write access.

Additional you can enable in your the settings to be notified by a user
