           Summary: "Login required" should forward to login page
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: User login and signup
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

When attempting to access a resource that requires a login - eg.
Special:Watchlist - an un-logged-in user receives a message to that effect,
with a link to Special:Login. Submitting that form returns the user to the
required resource.

The intermediate page is redundant; a better user experience would be to
forward the user to Special:UserLogin and present the message there. This is
how most modern web applications handle the process.

This is quite similar to bug 10868 which was closed in 2011 as WONTFIX for
reasons to do with secure login. I don't believe that should be an issue with
this improvement.
