Description charitwo 2008-10-13 00:48:38 UTC
I noticed something earlier today on a wiki outside Wikimedia servers and thought it might just be a problem there, but with the help of kylu, I tested it on Meta and confirmed it doesn't work on Wikimedia wikis either.



Kylu flagged herself as a bot to perform this test and made the page and it indeed did not show as one would expect.

You don't need to put "User:" before the username on Newpages.
Comment 2 charitwo 2008-10-13 01:11:40 UTC
Perhaps it would be best to clarify in the default messaging where "User:" is required and where it is not.
