Description Roan Kattouw 2008-01-08 16:01:27 UTC
The [[MediaWiki:protect-level-autoconfirmed]] message currently contains (by default): "Block unregistered users". This is not what autoconfirmed is about, however. [[MediaWiki:protect-level-autoconfirmed]] should either say something about "autoconfirmed" (like [[MediaWiki:group-autoconfirmed]] and [[MediaWiki:group-autoconfirmed-member]] do), or something about semi-protection (in lieu of [[MediaWiki:restriction-level-autoconfirmed]]).

Are you asking to have the default massage changed or or have it changed on wikipedia, cause that can be done by administrators.
Comment 2 Aaron Schulz 2008-03-02 23:18:59 UTC
Probably the default. The thing is, what spro does depends on the site settings. It *can* just be unregistered users, and that is what it is by *default*. So the message is correct. If you change it to require edits/days, then you should edit the message.
