 Similiar ticket, but description of a specific case
 [http://trac.buddypress.org/ticket/947 Ticket-947]

 One of my guys saw this type of thing too.

 There are a couple choices here, more detailed backend reporting or
 javascript front-end validation prior to submit.

 If the error messages are coming from an ajax response I feel that the
 more ambiguous the better.  This is a good security practice, as not to
 give too much away and limiting the attack surface.

 The existing validation does work. It displays an error, it prevents the

 I believe using javascript validation in addition to the already existing
 backend validation could be a viable added solution.
