The site I admin (here) has a rather unusual sign‑on policy. We screen absolutely everyone and then start new users at trust level TL2. That screening often takes place via personal email traffic completely unconnected with the site. And the details of those processes are not relevant here.
What is missing (if I am not mistaken) though is an automatic email for the “Application pending” use‑case. This would be dispatched directly after consenting to the terms of the site and submitting the application. For the record, here is what a pending application looks like for an administrator:
But problems can arises when a new user expects to apply, sign‑on, and start editing without screening. Indeed we have had one request for a notification email as described to remove that particular source of confusion.
Can I program this missing boilerplate email or do I have to wait for it to be developed and added to the mainline? Or is there some other solution perhaps? TIA, R
