@Purodha, so the message should be change from {{GENDER:$2|You}} just made {{GENDER:$2|your}} first edit to {{SITENAME}}; thank {{GENDER:$2|you}}, and welcome!" to something like: {{GENDER:$2|You}} just made {{GENDER:$2|your}} first edit; thank {{GENDER:$2|you}}, and welcome!"

That still makes sense though, so if this is accepted, i can make sure i remove all the various instances that uses {{SITENAME}} like;

  • notification-header-thank-you-1-edit
  • notification-header-thank-you-10-edit
  • notification-header-thank-you-100-edit
  • notification-header-thank-you-1000-edit
  • etc...
