Ambiguous error text when inviting a user already invited


(Michael Downey) #1

Anyone agree that this error message is ambiguous? (e.g., When inviting a user ID who that had already been invited to the topic.)

Validation failed: Topic has already been taken

Perhaps something like this?

Sorry, that user has already been invited. You may only invite a user to a topic once.

(A different question is whether or not it’s a good idea to limit 1 invitation per user… in my use case, I needed them to come back to the topic to participate again.)

Sure this is a good change, @techapj can you add it to your list?

Okay, we now have better error message for this, via:
