Add maintenance script to clear user_email_authenticated
Closed, ResolvedPublic


It would be nice to have a maintenance script that can be used to set the user_email_authenticated to NULL for accounts that are known to have bad email addresses. One common source of these is Wikitech accounts with addresses for former WMF staff.

Ideally the script would provide a message on the user's talk page or maybe an Echo notification when the script is run.
