Re: [proposal] manual create new user on upgraded wiki

2012-12-10 Thread Helen russian
I've verified for the new account: Testaccount. The manual
registration a new wiki user works fine:
* Email with a random password has been sent. I received it normal.
* When I first login as Testaccount with this password, Wiki offers me
change the password and shows me the form for it.
* The password is changed successfully, the login with the new
password is successfully too, but with the second trying. First Wiki
showed me LogOut page

Probably, new users have some problems when Wiki not immediately shows
the data of the user after login, but it can happen in case of any
method of the registration.

 Some users think they need an account just to read, but that might not be
 the case with these users.

 Helen: you have the procedure in your head, could you not simulate a new
 user, and verify it works ?

 I have no problem with the old automated procedure, as long as sysop
 understand the risk of a new spam attack (which are higher then 98%, now
 they know we can be attacked).

  The most efficient measure is a manual creation, and if I count correctly
 we talk about less than 10 new users in a month.

  I think the manual registration for new wiki users is not good.

 We have created 12 new user accounts since 24 November. These users don't
 make any edit on the wiki. Maybe they can't edit the wiki pages or they
 can't login or can't change a temporary password? I don't know.

 One new user wrote me: now I can't edit wiki with my new account. Other
 new user wrote: Unfortunately I have not received the email with password.
 I have checked my Spam folder.

 I have replied them but I have not result yet (no emails from them).
