The Issue

Breaking out issues discussed (mostly by me) from #214

Currently, the LBRY publish feature does not allow you to publish to an existing claim name unless you outbid the current claim. I'm pretty sure we want to allow users to do this but need to clearly explain that the content will only be available at the long URL and not the vanity URL.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Go to Publish, type one in URL
  2. Says "A deposit of at least "50000" credits is required to win "one" and Publish is disabled

Expected behaviour

Allow publish at existing claim name without a takeover, but explain this to the user

Actual behaviour

Cannot publish without takeover

System Configuration
