Based on bounce notices from landfill, people *frequently* sign up for accounts on landfill using fake email addresses. There is wording currently on the create account screen that says your password will be mailed to you, but it doesn't actually say that you won't be able to get in until you get that email (until after you submit the form, then it tells you that). Perhaps something like: "A randomly generated password will be emailed to you. You will not be able to log in until you receive that email." I'm open for better suggestions, too.
Comment on attachment 134920 [details] [diff] [review] Patch We should probably tell them who to contact if the email doesn't arrive, too. (Param("maintainer"))
Created attachment 134922 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v2 I agree. I've added "reasonable amount of time" as well in order to discourage playing the "oh, mail is not here after 60 seconds, let's bug the admin about it!" game (in this way, people will hopefully wait some hours or so to allow the mail to reach before disturbing the admin about it).
Comment on attachment 134922 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v2 Yeah, but Bugzilla is now a customizable term
Comment on attachment 134922 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v2 how about making the maintainer address a mailto: link, too, while we're at it? :)
Created attachment 134923 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v3 I patched the wrong file last time.
Yes, but it's still wrong <wink>
+ To create a [% terms.Bugzilla %] account, all that you need to do + is to enter a legitimate e-mail address. The account will be created, This phrase is clumsy. We can change the initial part to "... all you need to do is enter a ..." It might be a good idea to boldify the "You will not be able ..." phrase given that it's supposed to stand out from the text, but that's your call.
Created attachment 134925 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v4 Sure, mailto: and terms.Bugzilla are good things. :)
Should also say "until you receive the password" since if the email never arrives and the admin gives them one, they can get in. ;)
Created attachment 134926 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v5 *nods*
Comment on attachment 134926 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v5 It would be easier if I could pester you on IRC :-) Sorry for the bother.
I'm away from my regular localhost until Sunday so probably connecting to IRC will be difficult this weekend. :)
