>4th: "Upon initial login, the system displays the new user welcome

Upon initial login of what or whom? Is this the first login experienced
by the entire system? Or just /your/ first login?

Also, its very... dry.

It's a good reword, and I can see why some people would prefer it. But
as a user, I'd simply be happier with 'the first time you log in, you
will see the new user welcome message.'
