Prompt user email address updates
I think it can be hard for people to figure out how to change the email address they have associated with the Commons -- sometimes because of confusion between the display email in the profile and the one associated with their account, sometimes due to trouble figuring out where to go to change the email address.
In a separate ticket (https://redmine.gc.cuny.edu/issues/3657), Boone wrote:
How's this for a plan: For all gc.cuny.edu users, show a prompt on next visit that says something like "The Graduate Center has recently migrated student accounts from the gc.cuny.edu domain to gradcenter.cuny.edu. If your email has changed, we can change your Commons profile for you. [No, keep firstname.lastname@example.org] [Yes, change to email@example.com]"
I routinely run into such alerts on social media services, and I think running a one-time alert for Commons users that appears after log-in would be really useful in that it could enable people to either confirm their email addresses or quickly take them to a space where they can change their address. I think that most people are under the misapprehension that they need to use CUNY addresses for the site, even though we just require that at sign up.
Luke, Chris, Sam, Boone -- what do you think?
