[Mediawiki-l] User Variable for Use in Templates

Hey guys, here's what I'm trying to do.
I'm setting up a MediaWiki website for a scientific association and
instead of relying only on collaborative writing, it's also important
that members be allowed to write "signed" articles on a subject that
may already exist.
What I'd like to do is include a string in the
[[MediaWiki:Nogomatch]] that would allow the user to create the
desired article after a failed search, redirecting him to this page:
The original article page would then act as a disambiguation page
listing all articles written on a particular topic.
It should be simple enough but I just can't find the proper variable
to use for the username in my template. I looked at theses pages:
but couldn't find what I'm looking for. Any hints? Is there a built
in template maybe for "wgUser"? Or maybe even a simpler way to
achieve this goal?
I originally posted my question over here if anyone's interested on
