Fail to display login error; instead displays block notice
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

WP:ACC https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:ACC creates accounts for users having a number of difficulties, many of which have blocks. We have received several emails regarding users attempting to login to their account and receiving an account creation block notice because they are mistyping their username.

An account creation block notice is displayed instead of "Login error: There is no user by the name "xx". Usernames are case sensitive. Check your spelling, or create a new account."

A login error needs to still be displayed to alert the user to check their spelling.

We are still experiencing this issue.

Please get this fixed, as soon as possible. It's a bit of issue for ACC and new users.

What is the exact English text of the "account creation block notice" displayed? That would allow someone to look that up in the codebase and adjust that text...

Setting 'stalled' status as noone seems to be able to provide the string :(

This bug report is confusing (I can't decide if it's even talking about login or account creation) and all login/account creation related code has been rewritten for AuthManager anyway, so the behavior probably changed. Please reopen if you run into it again (and provide clearer reproduction steps).
