CreateMassMessageList source text input field accepts non-existent categories
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When I go to http://mm-ch.wmflabs.org/wiki/Special:CreateMassMessageList and select the "Import pages from an existing list or category" radio button to activate the "Source" text field input, I'm able to enter and successfully submit "Category:Fofjdsfidsjflds", which does not exist as a category description page and has no category members. We should either prevent or warn here.
