error messages

I suggest you change the error messages box somewhere else, it bothers when I´m trying to fix/resend my message. I suggest you send it to the middle of the screen.

    We’re always reviewing how to best display error messages. But, no matter what, we want to make sure users see the errors. Hence the current placement.

    Regardless, if there’s a better way to display them, we’re all ears.

        My issue is that when having a message publishing error, the message only displays for a fraction of a second. Thus unreadable.

        I have been getting this error for the last week or every time I try to bulk post
        500 Internal Server Error The server was unable to complete your request.

        Why did this happen?

        Our servers are just too busy for our own good.
        The internet broke (ie. The tubes are full)
        The date is Sunday, December 23, 2012.
        We had a little hiccup. Try reloading the page.

        Above the textbox or maybe below the network account icons (not sure if that works when someone has a ton of linked accounts). Pretty much anywhere other than directly above the network icons, which I need to click on 9 times out of 10.

        I agree. It hampers the user experience when the error message pops up directly over the social network icons, especially when the error is that I forgot to select a social network.

        This would make posting smoother and save time if posting a lot each day
