Will you please change this? It should be:

Oops! Something went wrong with the ability to do that, for the following {{PLURAL:$1|reason|reasons}}:

Why should it say that? That implies that you should have permission to perform the action, when in most cases you shouldn't. For example, trying to edit this page. --SnorlaxMonster 08:20, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

Because Bulbapedia has the protected page text that says:

<big>'''You do not have the permission to edit this page.'''</big>

* If you are not logged in, please '''[[Special:Userlogin|log in or create an account]]'''.
* If you have not confirmed your e-mail address, please '''[[Special:Confirmemail|confirm your e-mail address]]'''.
* If this page is protected, then only [[Project:Administrators|Administrators]] may edit this page.

Until then, try changing it to this:

Oops! Something went wrong with the permission to $2, for the following {{PLURAL:$1|reason|reasons}}:

Until when? Changing it to your suggestion implies that you should have permission, when in a lot of cases, you shouldn't. I don't see any advantage of the suggested one over the current one, which makes more sense with the list of reasons that the interface provides. --SnorlaxMonster 23:01, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
