Description

I want to unhide a post of topic. But failed and show this message (example). In fact the reason is the post has been unhided by others. The words "Insufficient permissions" is not appropriate.

Is it this message you need to change?

I am translating from en to zh. Do I misunderstand the meaning of "Insufficient permissions"?

"Insufficient permissions" means you don't have enough rights attached to your account to see a deleted post; only admins can see the post. That kind of message is also displayed if you try to access a deleted article.

But the post was not deleted. It was hided only. I wanted to unhide it but conflicted with other's action. In fact, I was unhiding a post already unhided. Then I got this message.

The issue was first reported as T66568: Flow: moderation action when already moderated gives misleading Insufficient permissions error

If one user unhide a topic, and another user within a short interval will attempt to unhide the same topic - the error message will say: "Insufficient permissions to execute this action." The error message is misleading - no specific user rights are required to hide a topic/post (anonymous users can do it too).
