I'm a little confused by the definition of "user generated content". Are 
we referring to things like blog posts and tutorials?

If so, then I think a static site generator + git still works. The 
author would just need to create a patch (using git format-patch) and 
then email it to this list. Someone with commit access to the www repo 
could then apply the patch and then a post-commit hook could regenerate 
the web site.

Granted, you would need some degree of technical savvy to do that, but 
not much more than it would take to clone the repo in the first place.
