Link the account creation message

Wikisysop creates an account for a user, and sees

"Account created
The user account for Habo has been created. "

Well, don't you think those words could link to User:Habo and / or his Talk page or something?

The second line is accountcreatedtext => 'The user account for $1 has been created.'

Yes, it could usefully have links "Habo (Talk)". Both would likely be redlinks as the user didn't exist before. I tried changing MediaWiki:accountcreatedtext to:

The user account for [[{{ns:User}}:$1|$1]] ([[{{ns:User talk}}:$1|talk]]) has been created.

on my local wiki and it worked!

So wikis can make this change. As to whether it *should* be in core, does the convenience of providing these links outweigh the confusion from the message getting technical and adding redlinks? Note that this message appears when someone who's already logged in creates an additional account, for someone else or as a sockpuppet. I would expect mostly advanced users do this.

Anyway the core change is gerrit 37606 (Gerrit Change I4e88829d8665c5c61a59877962a8a14b55c91aa0) | change APPROVED and MERGED [by jenkins-bot]
