David Weir brought to our attention that when he signed up for a Webmaker account this week he got two separate emails welcoming him. One from myself and one from Mark Surman. Not sure if this is a bug? Or error? But I agree with him that only one should be sent to users. I've pasted the email he received from Mark: ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Mark Surman, Mozilla.org <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Tue, May 27, 2014 at 8:33 PM Subject: Thanks for signing up! To: email@example.com Hi there, Thanks so much for signing up with Mozilla. We'll be in touch with more soon, but here are a few ways you can get started today, helping us make the Web a better place for everyone: :: Join Mozilla with a donation: https://donate.mozilla.org/Join-signup :: Download the latest version of Firefox: http://www.mozilla.org/firefox/ :: Then share it with a friend or family member: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/connect/ :: Volunteer on a Mozilla project: http://www.mozilla.org/contribute/ :: Join the Army of Awesome and help Firefox users on Twitter: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/army-of-awesome Sincerely, Mark Surman Executive Director Mozilla Foundation P.S. -- If, at any time, you want to unsubscribe from Mozilla email, simply go here: https://donate.mozilla.org/page/unsubscribe/
This isn't a bug. When you get to the modal dialog where you create a username, there are two checkboxes. The first says "Send me email updates about Mozilla Webmaker and other projects" and causes the new user's email to be signed up for the BSD email list if it is checked (it's not mandatory to check it) Once the account is successfully created, we fire an event into out Make this then that system, where it'll process the BSD list signup, if necessary, and *always* send the welcome email.
As we move to deprecate the Webmaker Product from Bugzilla, I'm going to close down this issue, which hasn't seen activity in a very long time. If more work is required here, please re-file this in an appropriate Product/Component/Github Issue.
