Description

bp really needs to get an overhaul in the error messaging front. It's not the style or appearance, it's the detail level that needs improvement.

Multiple sources of errors percolate up the chain to the same or similar messages.

==Agree==
Similiar ticket, but description of a specific case 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.

==Security==
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.

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

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

This is a very general ticket, and as of BP 1.2, significant changes have been made, including, most if not all of Jason_JM's suggestions. Closing this in favor of more specific patches like #947.
