The "Interaction diagram of a successful account creation process." illustration in Extension:ConfirmAccount#Usage does not include any New User "talk page" creation. It is the most persistent place to that the Admin/bureaucrat has to give newbie instruction to the new account holder about how to begin editing.
Our site's welcome message is a "Welcome to Gramps! We hope you will contribute much and well. You will probably want to read the help pages. Again, welcome and have fun! <approving admin name> (talk) <datestamp>"
Pretty useless. We've created a "Welcome survey" transclusion template but have to manually add it after each new user creation. (See https://www.gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php/User_talk:JohnRSibert)
But it has been SO long since the site was set up that we cannot find where to customize this message. The Manual:User creation page does not any obvious place detailing the New Account creation process... it says what triggers the User creation but does not have a flowchart of the overt steps performed by the wiki nor how to find documentation on controlling those steps.
I'd really appreciate a section on this Extension:ConfirmAccount page that lists the template pages (or documentation pages) used to generate content communicating with a new account applicant.
It should be easier to find all the interaction generators/templates if admins/bureaucrats want to customize the verbiage on:
- the new account web request form
- the eMail sent to the admin (so they can add links to New User Approval policy or blacklisted user lists)
- the confirmation eMail sent to a New User
- the Welcome message created on the New User's Talk page
- the temporary password eMail
- the log-on and change password page
I also do not know if these are the same communications that the user normally sees from the MediaWiki during "direct account creation". Googling for that "direct account creation" term only finds the ConfirmAccount extension documentation. Is there a searchable term for this process?
