Error message too generic.

I just tried to post a new topic in our forum at
www dot music-similarity dot com
and i accidentally left the Subject field empty,
the error message box that shows up when you try to post is very generic.
Something along the lines of "No authorization to post".
It would help greatly if the error message were more descriptive, so the user knows right-away what to correct.

(not sure what version Similarity forum is running, and I am not a member of this forum, so this may have been already fixed, but I just wanted to give you a heads up just in case)

We already know about such case and it's not a bug. Read here:

" You are not allowed... " Alert Box when posting a message

However since we are receiving such requests too often last time, we might consider to implement it in the next version, despite it will increase the code in size a lot.
