Description

8 years ago
Currently (at least last I checked):

Anon user makes a new question, gets email that says "Confirm your question" with info on confirming your question which links to a page that directs to the question.

On allizom:

Anon user makes a new question, gets email that says "Confirm your account" which links to a page that confirms that they confirmed an account that also lets them log in.

Goal:

Anon user (but not a registered user) makes a new question, gets an email that says "Confirm your question" (except it REALLY confirms the email so they only do this if they're anon) and then takes them to a page that redirects to their question.

This way, the user is asked to accomplish the task he set out to do (asking a question) rather than a secondary task that may seem unrelated (setting up an account) and is helped to finishing said task.

Of course, when making a new account, we should still do the confirm account the way we do now.

New text for confirm email.

Sending a different user confirmation email based on the place they registered is a little more complex than changing the text.

Cheng: this registration confirmation email may well arrive before they've finished asking the question--even if they never finish asking the question. Is that OK?

Yeah.  I may slightly tweak the wording but I suspect most people will power through and finish the next page before even checking their email so it's not going to be a big deal.
