            Bug ID: 61704
           Summary: action=createaccount should do checks in the first
                    request, not second
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized

Should check for blocks, existing usernames, and other issues in the first
request, and then ask for a captcha. Right now, if the user tries to register a
name already registered, we ask them to solve a captcha and *then* tell them it
is taken. And then they have to try again, and we ask them for a captcha
solving before proceeding. This is terrible UX, and I can't think of a reason
why this has to be the case.
