[pmwiki-users] action = copy?

My site has gps tracks (bus routes and foot/car routes) and points of
interest. It contains my own data, which I trust, and an area for users to
add their own data, which I don't trust as much.

Since it is easy for a malicious user to enter false GPS coordinates and
send someone to a nasty part of town, an unpassable road, or just an
inappropriate place, I don't let users edit my data. I don't let them see
the source for security reasons.

I want users to be able to copy and edit pages so they can use he same
templates I do. This way, the can maintain the same style as I do, and once
I verify their data, I can move it to the read only groups with ease.

I have a different template for each group, but only one for the users area.
If you have the time, check out the wiki part of the site,
gps.words2u.netand you'll get the idea. I am still working on the
site, so the design needs
to be improved (more graphics, less intrusive borders on the ads, etc.), but
the general strcture and templates are close to final status.
