Going to Tool Creation interface without logging in gives confusing error page
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

If you go to https://toolsadmin.wikimedia.org/tools/create/ without logging in first, it gives you a confusing error page that doesn't even look like an error page. Instead of giving them the Wikipedia definition of HTTP 403 and a request ID code, it should just show them a simple error message and tell them to try logging in first.

Or just redirect to the login page, which is IIRC what mediawiki does.
