a) I occasionally check my wiki & see there are dozens / hundreds of
people signing up as users - but no one is creating any pages.
is there a place i can see that can check that people CAN create pages
- but they are pending / needing approval to be published ?
i'm guessing that people create new accounts but cant do anything. how
do i check ?
b) is there something i can do to force the wiki to send an email to
the admin (me) - to check that i am receiving emails. (I periodically
forget about this wiki as i'm not getting anything).
c) where do i (if i can) edit the script to use my own mailing process
instead of the default process to send emails.
