I tried to on MediaWiki 1.35 but it doesn't intercept article creation process for any user; everything is still as if the extension isn't registered on the wiki. I'm I missing something?

Who knows how to setup Extension:ArticleCreationWorkflow ?
You should read the documentation. I don't think this is designed the way you think -- it doesn't appear to meant to "intercept" the article creation process.
I've read all that, nothing of value. Besides, That page is obsolete. It is being retained for archival purposes. It document extensions or features that are obsolete and/or no longer supported.
Please, no more referral to a documentation; only those who have actually implemented the extension in their wiki should reply to this thread.
there is a general expectation that you read and make a reasonable attempt to understand all relavent documentation before asking for help here.
@Bawolff: I would not ask if a documentation on the web was enough. Nothing of great value anywhere including at CommonSettings.php, but the IniSettings.php have a little clue but unclear.
Many people are lost on the practical application of this extension. Just look at the extension talk page.
if you have specific questions that aren't covered by the documentation, by all means ask them. But if you start the conversation by implying you have no intention to read the documentation, nobody is going to help you.
p.s. in fairness,the documentationon extension:ArticleCreationWorkflow was kind of lacking so i added some stuff to it about under what circumstances interception happens.
The following is all you added:
ArticleCreationWorkflow helps users create new pages, intercepting article creation for new users and giving them wiki-configurable options such as using the Article wizard or creating a draft as a user subpage.
In order for users to be intercepted, they must have the createpage right, must not have the createinmainns right, the page they are trying to create must be in the main namespace (and not yet exist) and the page pointed to by $wgArticleCreationLandingPage must exist.
But this is something any admin would readily know already.
I looked at your user rights and noticed you have a lot of them; I would be grateful if you can test the extension in a test environment and feed us.

Maybe that is why the extension has been largely abandoned?
But it works seamlessly on Wikipedia.
