On getting the third step done, maybe we can use the Recent changes category template, see for instance:, where all related recent changes are listed. Special:Recentchangeslinked/Category:X is the model.//Hannibal (talk) 12:02, 11 April 2011 (UTC)[reply]

This looks fantastic, it would be brilliant to implement this. I'd struggle to think of any objections. A big thank you for making this :) Acather96 (talk) 15:11, 15 April 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Just one quick question:[edit]

I work on the Request-an-account process on En-WP for users who csn't otherwise create an account, we do not however always know a users interests so would there be any means that we could bypass this when creating the account and then when the user logs in for the first time once they have changed their password, could they then complete steps 2 and 3 themselves so they still get the benefits of the suggestions?

Another Question:[edit]

Are you going to keep the old system for Users creating accounts whilst logged in (for BOTS etc.) as they won't want to go through those forms for a BOT or Public Computer Account? Thanks again, Jamietw (talk) 12:37, 8 May 2011 (UTC)[reply]
