When previewing an IRL post and you get an error, the error is kind of in the middle of the page and in normal text, so it's hard to see what's missing from the form. Having it at the top of the page and with IRL's alt-color beige, would help a lot.

Yeah, I think we can highlight them a little more. They are in bold, but we could probably set them off with a different background color. The location of the error messages is standard across all of our new post forms, so I don't think we'll move it to the top of the page, but we can discuss it.

I just updated new post errors at IRL to bring them in line with how we show them in other places. There's now a bit more space between the error messages and they're set off with a different color background.

Wait, where's the people decrying this idea? This is not how things work here!

There's no decrying in inside baseball.

For one thing there is no space inside a baseball. Now, if we're talking lightbulbs, there is no amount of nastyness that happens in there, so I'm told. Surprised the Republicans haven't waged a war on lightbulbs... O wait.

IRL is found just outside of the maybeth dimension.
