Help texts are needed for user 1 edit page:

- "user/1/edit"

[removed old path and reference]

Suggested text (adapted from #4)

Be careful, you are editing the admin user. Changes made here could lock you out of your site completely.

I can't find any Rules page in Drupal core, but there is still no help text for user/1/edit, so still a valid issue in Drupal 7.4.

user/1/edit is just the Edit profile page. Is there any reason to have help text on this page that is not the same as on every user/%/edit page?

If text should be added, what should it be?

Something saying 'This is the admin user. Changes made here could lock you out of your site completely.' might be handy here.

Having a warning (or help text) about User 1 would be nice.

Is there any UX enhancement planed for the user profile edition form?

This patch displays the warning in the issue summary in user/1/edit.

I Reviewed the patch and the "warning" message is:

Warning message Be careful, you are editing the admin user. Changes made here could lock you out of your site completely.

It works great.

This is not in line with our UI standards, were we explicitly avoid words such as "Please" and/or other forms of asking the user to apply a certain emotional state.

If users are logged in with this account it makes sense, in all other cases I am not sure about special casing it?

We can do something much more friendly and more explicit about which change might lock them out?
