            Bug ID: 60756
           Summary: creating a user account using the "Create account"
                    link at the top doesn't create a sandbox account
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

Creating a user account using the "Create account" link at the top doesn't
create a sandbox account.

A common user scenario for this is the case of calls-to-action in blog posts or
emails that invite people to translate a project by linking directly to
Special:Translate. Creating an account using the top link doesn't put the new
account in the sandbox, but creates a usual account without translator
permission.

Clicking the link for getting a permission under the editor in the TUX
interface brings the user Special:MainPage, and then clicking the green
Translate button on the main page brings the user again to Special:Translate
and not to the stash. This is confusing and at least one user complained about
this.

(All of the above was tested in translatewiki.net.)
