Welcome back email notification after renewed account activity


"Welcome back" emails should be sent to users on renewed account activity who have been inactive for longer than X months with more than Y edits or advanced permissions. X and Y should be server-side variables, with possibly X configurable by the user.

The benefits of this proposal include likely improved established editor retention and detection of account cracking.

Discussion on en.wp: [[Wikipedia:Village pump (proposals)/Account security#Notify users after renewed activity]]; suggests Y ~ 1000 initially.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
