Hi all,

A belated e-mail to announce a feature that has been running for a week or so.

Every three minutes, ErfgoedBot retrieves the list of users who uploaded, in the last few minutes, pictures marked as participating to WLM. If an uploader has not enabled e-mail, the bot leaves a message on their talk page explaining that it is necessary to win a prize (unless it has already notified that user).

You can help translating the message in more languages at:

We hope that this will help to avoid situations of winning pictures with no email enabled, only detected much later when the uploader is not around anymore.

You can see the original requirements at

Thank you to:
* Lodewijk for the original idea
* André for the code-review
* Michael Maggs for some much needed polishing of the message prose

Hope this helps,
