Wikimedia Bugzilla is closed!

Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description Purodha Blissenbach 2006-09-02 04:19:29 UTC
Sorry, you are not qualified to vote in this election here on Wikimedia Meta-Wiki. You need to 
have made 400 edits here before 00:00, 2006 August 1, you have made 119. Also, your first edit 
on this wiki was at 14:34, 2005 June 20, it needs to be before 00:00, 2006 May 3.

You could vote from another Wikimedia project. Then please visit the project you are active and 
try again. Thank you!

The 2nd sentence of the above statement does not appear quite correct, or locical.
It rather qualifies as a good example of the common prejudice:
"hey, computers *are* stupid, aren't they?"

Of course had the 2nd condition triggered this message but not the 1st, things
were reversed.

Thus, the message either needs rewording, or to be split into two independent ones.

This bug is no longer relevant (2 years old), so closing for housekeeping purpose.
