In 1.5 there is a field for "Notice at top for new registered users" - what exactly determines a new user here? Is it time since registration, points, or something else?

Also, does this show the message in the same way as the "first time visitors" one, the pink banner at the very top of the page?

If this option is set when a particular user is created, that user is marked with QA_USER_FLAGS_WELCOME_NOTICE=64 in their flags column as requiring the notice to be displayed. The notice will be displayed as the pink banner at the top of the page, until the user dismissed it. It's not based on any characteristic of the user like time since registration or points - just the presence of this flag in the database.
