New user accounts

Hi Bernie,

I was getting some low-level mildly annoying spam, so I've changed the CAZypedia setup so that only "sysops" can add users.

(Modified from http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Preventing_access )

New users will still be able to be created by sysops, in the following manner:

  1. Go to Special:Userlogin, when logged in as a sysop.
  2. Click on "Create an account" to get to the account creation form.
  3. Enter a username (use Firstname Lastname), a valid email address, the person's real name, and click the "by email" button. (NOTE: make sure you use the "by email" button.)
  4. The account will be created with a random password which is then emailed to the given address.

I've also changed Help:Getting_Started_Guide and MediaWiki:Loginprompt to reflect this new policy.
