Our need is basically to stop the flow of requests from the list and enforce the use of VRTS. The first option is good enough for this.
The autoresponder can be something as simple as:

Can we use it as a workaround? I've seen many complains about this error at pt.wiki.

@jwang, it may be interesting to insert another graphic, indicating the total number of protected pages in each week. What do you think?

Setting it to 100% is possible, but having 20% of new users not get the homepage is deliberate, so as to create a control group for the experiment.
Oh, OK. Sorry for the confusion. I had seen that euwiki was set to 100 and I had assumed it was sort of customizable. So, I don't see a problem with staying at 80%, but is there a plan of how long the tests will stay? After that, the number could be raise to 100%.

@Trizek-WMF As far as I could verify, everything looks great! I didn't find any bug or missing translations, except for the link to the edit page that was incorrect on the commit, but I managed to solve it with a redirect. I couldn't look at WelcomeSurvey, because when I tried to open it, it redirected straight to the main page.
Meanwhile, I was wondering... Is it possible to customize the activation rate for new users with an on-wiki control? Something like a page that we can define an integer or something like that. I ask this because only 15 users have signed up as mentors and, if several new mentees appear at the same time, some mentors could unsubscribe from the list. I think that starting at a low rate and gradually increasing it may be wiser at this point.

After the deploy, the bug no longer occurs on my tests. I'm marking here as Resolved. Thank you all!
