Currently any problems are just show as a status message (usually green), errors should be shown as errors.
Here's a patch that will set 'There was a problem with your newsletter signup' as error messages.
I appreciate that drifter, but I disagree it should be an error message. This is an information message to users, not necessarily sign that there's an error on the site.
levelos I think your reasoning is wrong here. Can we at least make this a warning? When a user makes a mistake in any drupal form it's not shown as a normal status message. This does not mean there is anything wrong with the site either. I think if people see the green "ok" symbol they presume everything went fine and wont read the message.
Hi, I wanted to log an issue for this and found this issue in the queue.
As Freakymage I also think people will assume everything went fine when they see a green message.
In my case I got this message:
There was a problem with your newsletter signup: Invalid Email Address: email@example.com
Thanks for looking again at this issue!
Sure, lets make it a warning.
We rolled this into the latest batch of commits: thanks for the suggestion & patch! New release coming shortly incorporating the changes.
