Validation Error Messages
Short, concise description of the idea
Validation error messages need to be consistent throughout the site. In addition, there should be a spot on the site where a user can check as to whether he or she is currently validated.
Full description of the idea
Currently, when you try to post to a moderated community via Semagic without a validated e-mail address it returns the message that is described here. However, other areas on the site refer to it as 'validated' rather than authenticated--which can lead to confusion. In addition, there does not appear to be a page that allows a user to check whether s/he is validated. I only found out when I viewed my support request, and I only knew that would tell me because I did Support for a year. I think there should be a page (as there is whereami.bml for checking cluster) for checking validation status.
