I run brainstorms in Miro and have new users coming in all the time. They are usually not tech savvy and have challenges navigating. 

I’d love if I could set up the boards with blank posits and lock everything BUT the writing, so they can write, but not move, resize anything, just write their idea.

This is really something that would increase the usability of miro and other requests have been made. Hope that the developers listen to the users!

I wholeheartedly second this idea. It would be great if board privileges could include a “switch” so that everything on the board EXCEPT the post-its either becomes locked, or unlocked.

I totally agree, I would really need the option to lock the structure of what you created but leave the writing open to defined objects!

This also causes issues with Zapier,  I will lock a Google Sheet so it will not move but then Zapier can not update or change any of the setting because it is locked.  Having it functionally unlocked but locked Position-ly would be much less frustrating.
