Some important problems appears on the frwiki recommendation: on the feedback page, a lot of people (based on the total amount of feedback) are complaining about:

  • they don't speak French bu received the email;
  • they are not active on frwp or not since a very long time, or were not active on ns-0

Please review the next batch of emails to prevent this.

@Tgr The way the users were chosen is explained here. The issue the users experienced was a mistake on our end not to put the bar high enough for choosing users. We have documented how we have changed this based on user feedback here.
