Clarified user interface needed for pages that are protected from moving
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: Aphaia

When a page is protected from moving, this page has an "edit" botton but no
"move" bottn for normal users. But for sysops it seems to have three bottons:
"edit", "unprotect" and "move". In other words, it looks for sysops as same as
unprotected page from moving. So it causes confusion sometimes. And on
Protection.log there is no difference between totally protected pages and only
protected from moving unless the sysop who protected the page clarified in its
summary. I expect the interface on the page will be improved and "protection
from moving" will be recorded on the log automatically.
