Page Creation

I think that it would be a good idea to include restrictions on users creating new pages. New users will probably not be able to figure out why they aren't allowed to. If the information is posted elsewhere it should include a link. --GregtehCollector 19:47, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Urm... new users are allowed to create pages... ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 19:48, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
So it says. HOWEVER! I have heard a couple of users complaining about not being able to. If that's an error on my behalf, I'll revoke my statement. --GregtehCollector 19:56, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
They are unable to create user pages, they are able to create articles. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 20:01, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
I'll bring this up in the forums. --GregtehCollector 20:07, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Actually GregtehCollector is correct. As seen here only users with the Autoconfirmed status and up can create new pages which are not discussion. So that means that new users can't create new pages. --Pokemaster97 20:39, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Indeed. I've added a few sentences to the article to reflect that. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:49, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
