Misleading error message when registering a username that already exists
|Reported by:||mintindeed||Owned by:|
I tried to register a new account today and the username already existed. Instead of getting that message with a red background, it just said "required" next to the field. I had no idea what the problem was, on a lark I realized there may have been a user already with the name I was trying to register. Indeed, that was the problem.
When I just tried again to get the exact error message (or lack of it), I would sometimes get "Required" and sometimes get "Username already exists" with a red background, I couldn't figure out the rhyme or reason.
