Thursday, September 08, 2011 best practices

When a user gets new rights, there is always a hiatus between the moment of requesting such rights and giving such rights. Localisers are valuable to us; we do not want to lose any and particularly we have high hopes for any and all new people willing to do the work.

Some of the bureaucrats at send e-mails to those new users who they grant user rights to, welcoming them and occasionally providing some extra information. In recognition of this practice it is now possible to send e-mail directly from the User rights management special page.

As a bureaucrat you do not really know who you send a mail to. The logging system that is being revamped however will have more of a clue. The User rights log is only one of the logs that will be modernised and support plural and gender. The first four associated messages are now available at translatewiki.
