How to limit user privilege to prevent unwanted modification
#2
I would look at the profile functionality as you can restrict some things in the profile, however for maximum lock down ability consider using advancedsettings.xml to manually configure the GUI settings you do not want them to tamper with.

Any GUI settings which are configured via advancedsettings.xml are actually removed from the user interface entirely - so for example say you set the option to disable deleting of files (through the context menu) in advancedsettings.xml - that option will no longer appear in the GUI in system settings so unless they can figure out how to edit your advancedsettings.xml then you've locked that setting away from them. (This works in Confluence - not 100% sure about other skins)

A bit of work to set up but it should do what you want. Settings hidden this way will actually be hidden for all profiles so you may not even need to use a profile at all. (you may also need to temporarily disable your advancedsettings.xml if you need to go in and do maintenance work that requires accessing the settings you've locked)
