SimulateTwoColEditConflicts does not work for protected pages
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Currently, you can choose any page for simulating an edit conflict but if you choose a protected page you'll get an error telling you that you're not allowed to edit that page. If there's a non-hacky way to simulate edit conflicts also for protected pages, let's do it. If not, we have to add a hint to the special page and also don't suggest the Main Page of the wikis as default as it is mostly protected.
