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 Jesse (Pathoschild) 2007-10-27 01:33:06 UTC
There's no way to know if the database is locked when registering an account until the form is submitted. The form locked message should be displayed on that page, just like it is while editing a page if the database is locked.

(This is a little annoying when registering accounts on every Wikimedia wiki.)

Alternatively, the "create an account" page should be outright impossible to reach.

Created attachment 4703 [details]

Made an attachement, shows readOnlyPage() on Special:Userlogin, it could probably be made to show it only when your creating an account.

Fixed in r35885 with a change to only show it on signup, not on login/logout.
