- On April 4 2018 there was an error which resulted in broken subst of invites to a batch of approx. 300 new editors. The invite pointed to the wrong template location, so the subst didn't render correctly. I fixed the error (for most of the affected users) by creating a temp copy of the invite template in the expected location and then sending out duplicate invites to re-render the page correctly. This resulted in most invitees receiving two invites instead of one for the day. The underlying error has been corrected in the code. J-Mo 19:39, 4 April 2018 (UTC)
