Ambiguous "Password:" header on Special:ChangeEmail
Closed, ResolvedPublic


[[Special:ChangeEmail]] currently

[[Special:ChangeEmail]] currently says: "Complete this form to change your e-mail address. You will need to enter your password to confirm this change." The password field is located right after the "New e-mail address" field and simply titled "Password:".

The preface and this layout makes it unnecessarily easy to think it wants your ''password for your e-mail account'' and not the current wiki. (I for one momentarily thought so despite being experienced enough to know it probably didn't mean to.)

I suggest the "Password:" header be changed slightly, to say "Your {{SITENAME}} password:"

Pranav and Jani: Thanks for the patch. Are you interested in using developer access to directly suggest it into our Git source control system?

Sumana: Thanks. I'm fairly new here and to Git in general, so I'd rather not, but it's fine by me if Pranav wants to.
