I would like to poke this bug into activity again and see if possible to get it done before the end of the month.

Wikinews should be doing a WikiVoices session getting people to write on the site; WMUK have just issued a press release recommending Wikinews as the answer to Newspapers going behind paywalls, and we would very much like to launch a writing competition towards the end of January.

For all of these reasons it would be extremely useful to have an auto-welcome - either when someone registers an account on enWN, or makes their first edit with their global account.
Comment 2 Rob Halsell 2010-01-13 16:22:44 UTC
The above extension has been added to enwikinews with the specified options.
