How can i fix so that the users and the regsitered only can make new pages?—This unsigned comment is by Menantectler (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

I am pretty sure that that cannot be done, and is probably a violation of the Terms of Use. The closest you can do is lock down a wiki for up to 12 hours so only certain groups can edit. DaRanger (Talk ~ Contribs) 20:05 ~ 10/5/2011

It can be done by asking Wikia to remove the createpage right from *. However, I would have a good reason to do so. 22px-Logo.svg.pngTyA_userpage_image.png Badge-VSTF.svg 03:51, October 6, 2011 (UTC)

Wikia is build around the fact that you have to assume good faith from people editing, whether they are logged in or not. Making it not possible to create new pages is against the good faith that people do make new pages to make the wiki better.
It is part of the task of an admin to check on the edits made on the wiki. Usually visitors will also do some checking up on revisions and will remove bad edits when they see it (which is very easy to be done).
You might want to make a welcoming message to all users like for instance done at Swords and Potions wiki (as well as for not logged in users) or the message above each new page (use MediaWiki:Newarticletext).
Hope this helps you!
