 I like this idea of cutting it down and pushing the user to their profile
 page. Here's the form without the Profile info.

 > @mapk Concept 2 seems to be the way to go, maybe without the profile
 information section. How should we display error messages? That's what
 WordPress does: https://cloudup.com/cSPVngF3NkH

 Keeping the same error pattern is good. Here is an idea incorporating
 @melchoyce's error example from above. It's just a thicker border and in
 red. I understand that some users might be colorblind, but the weight of
 the border and error msg above should be enough to indicate the problem
 and where it is. I wouldn't mind adding an error icon next to the input
 field, but am unsure the structure of the markup allows for that (it may
 not even allow the border change as it is).

 If we do add in an input change on error, we should make sure that pattern
 gets carried over to the login and forgot password pages as well.
