We could suggest to use the sandbox instead for learning how to work
with the wiki. Another option could be to set up something like a
'construction area' where every new article should be created first
and be moved to the correct section when finished.

Besides that it may confuse ppl if they do not have access to their
personal page. Perhaps granting access to personal pages could be
automated in some kind of way.

Best Regards
