I just wanted to see if other people agreed with me on this...does anyone like seeing new users on RecentChanges? I don't see any value in it. Wikia told me they will turn it off if we reach a consensus to do so. Let me know your thoughts. Thank you. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 01:29, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, it's a good idea. Recently more and more users are creating accounts and it has starting to get annoying. Benitoperezgaldos (talk) 01:34, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
The User creation log? I see no use for it. Kill it with fire.--SWM2448 01:45, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
It serves no other purpose than to welcome users before they edit or monitor for sockpuppets or inappropriate usernames. If neither of these are a concern, I don't see why it should be enabled. — Charitwo (talk) 04:25, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, they're not. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 04:34, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
Yea, it does get a little annoying... especially since they get an automatic welcome when they first make an edit now anyways. User:Coobra/Sig4 07:05, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Turn it off. The only use I can think would be if someone creates a bunch of sockpuppets in a row, it could serve as a sort of listing, but that isn't much help. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 9:27 PM PST 31 May 2009
Sounds like a consensus to me. Done. Should be noticeable soon. Kirkburn  talk  contr 16:04, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

*burns it with fire as the resolution was far too anti-climactic* --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 19:31, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
