#25687 closed enhancement (invalid)

Consider the date a user registered when showing admin pointers

Description

The admin pointers in core take into consideration the first database version number of the installation, to avoid showing pointers from previous versions. It doesn't, however, take into consideration the date that a user registered. This means that a new user joining a site can get bombarded with several admin pointers in quick succession.

We should look at hiding some of the older admin pointers for newly registered users.

We do:

add_action( 'user_register', array( 'WP_Internal_Pointers', 'dismiss_pointers_for_new_users' ) );

When I was added to the make/core blog I got shown all the old pointers. Maybe this was because I've actually had an account for years but up until now never had access to an admin dashboard on that particular site.
