Description Alex Monk 2012-03-16 22:53:58 UTC
The logentry-newusers-newusers-* messages are inconsistent:

'logentry-newusers-newusers' => '$1 created a user account',
'logentry-newusers-create' => '$1 created a user account',
'logentry-newusers-create2' => '$1 created a user account $3',
'logentry-newusers-autocreate' => 'Account $1 was created automatically',

Either 'Account' should be appended to the start of the non-autocreate messages, or it should be removed from the autocreate one.
Comment 1 Dan Collins 2012-03-17 02:28:55 UTC
I don't see the inconsistency. In the first three there was an active action of registering committed by $1, so it's written in the active voice. In the last one the passive voice is used because $1 did not perform any active action worthy of a log action, he just tried to log in on a new wiki. Since it's a different message referring to a different event (new registration vs SUL first time on this wiki) it makes sense for the messages to be different?
Comment 2 Alex Monk 2012-03-17 10:57:23 UTC
It makes sense for them to be different in that it marks automatically created accounts as '$1 was created automatically'. But the 'Account' bit is just unnecessary and makes the messages inconsistent.
Comment 3 Nemo 2012-07-25 09:44:02 UTC
Are you sure that you're not mixing old and new logging system' messages? Niklas would know.
Comment 4 Alex Monk 2012-10-27 18:33:15 UTC
These are all listed under "# New logging system" in languages/messages/MessagesEn.php.
