    Description

      When a user creates a new forum, doesn't enter a title, and clicks "save," an error message appears: "Validation Error: Field does not have minimum number of allowable characters." (See screenshot) This error message can be confusing because it doesn't indicate which field should have inputs. It should be changed in to "Please enter a valid forum title."
