Update the "this page is protected from editing" message one gets when viewing the source of a protected page. make it friendlier, again linking to where one *can* suggest changes and explaining this in postive rather than negative terms. Add a separate "this is the talk page of a protected page" message for the talk pages of protected pages, noting that discussions can continue to take place there. Add yet another message for talk pages that are themselves protected.
* Updated Mediawiki message
* 2 new Mediawiki messages (
*- one for talk pages of protected pages
*- one for talk pages that are protected... linking ideally to some other suitable [generic] place to comment.
Edit as appropriate for your wiki's community.
NB: This bug suggests 2 new MediaWiki messages -- messages which don't currently
exist and so cannot be edited as appropriate for the local community -- and a
change to the default of 1 existing message.
*sigh*, this is just another db query, and if it has to check cascading
protection then its even worse off (we don't even want to do that on a page on
view). And if we do this for talk pages (cascading too), then we have to for the
page itself so as not to be inconsistant.
I am leaning towards wontfix on this one.
Doesn't seem particularly necessary.
