Display message on user registration form if database locked
Closed, ResolvedPublic

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

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.
