Description MF-Warburg 2013-08-27 23:38:50 UTC
The message centralauth-admin-status-locked-yes (current English text: "Account is locked from editing") should be changed to "Account is locked from logging in" to reflect what actually happens.
Comment 1 Victor Vasiliev 2013-08-27 23:48:57 UTC
Weren't they allowed to log in long time ago? The code definitely suggests so.
Comment 2 MF-Warburg 2013-08-27 23:58:47 UTC
Not according to what documentation pages on Meta say. I've also tested it myself already; users get told their password is wrong, cf. bug 15294 comment 26 where it is suggested to change that message.
Comment 3 Nemo 2013-11-19 12:35:48 UTC
Adding many blockers of bug 38638 to the list of "easy" bugs, to mark them as candidates for [[mw:Google Code-in]] tasks (gci2013). If you think this bug is not suitable, remove the keyword.
