Change staff-email adress confirmation message unclear


(Bas van Leeuwen) #1

tl;dr: js.user.change_email.success should be slightly altered

Reproduction path:

Expected:

Actual:

Suggested fix:
Change js.user.change_email.success to “We’ve sent an email to your original address. Please follow the confirmation instructions.”

[edit] changed to show it only happens for staff-emails

This behavior should only happen for staff (but I agree that the copy should be edited for them).


(Bas van Leeuwen) #3

Ah, that behaviour makes a lot of sense! Thanks Discourse for watching out for us :slight_smile:

Makes the fix less trivial though :frowning:

It should have its own message for staff. I agree it’s confusing.


(Neil Lalonde) #6

I made a change for this. The new message for staff is js.user.change_email.success_staff:

We’ve sent an email to your current address. Please follow the confirmation instructions.
