I found 2 confirmed bugs since I first installed Discourse yesterday, maybe I get a trifecta?
Using 1.8.0.beta8 (upgraded live from beta7). I invited a user, and they created and confirmed their account. Upon first login, they get the default welcome message, which at the end says:
(If you need to communicate with staff members as a new user, just reply to this message.)
This suggests that if the new user replies, then the staff members will be notified and will be able to communicate in that message chaing. However, that welcome message is owned by the predefined user
system which does not have an email address, so nobody is notified or sees thereply.
The new user then cries (violently) at the lack of attention and blames Trump. We don’t want the former.
Perhaps the sender of the welcome message should befault to the first site admin (user_id:1, created upon installation)?
