Full creation protection does not prevent non-admins from creating boards
Open, HighPublic

Description

To reproduce:

  1. Full protect ("Block all non-admin users") a talk page (e.g something in http://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Flow_test_talk: namespace) that doesn't exist.
  2. Log out.
  3. Create the board as an anon.

Step #3 should not be possible.

Regular edit-protection works (except for the error formatting being broken, which is T121137: [betalabs] Blocked user creating a new topic gets malformed error message).

Create the board as an anon, how is it possible ? Perhaps topic is the word you want ?
