I was filing a proposal for a Tekom (European Association for Technical Communication) conference. I selected subject area for my proposal from the Assignment of subject area dropdown
and got the message in a modal box:
Choose allowed format
Choose allowed format for this topic area
The only visible exit was an x button at the top-right corner
- The text of the message is completely unintelligible. I was not able to figure out what it tells me.
- There is no visible exit at the bottom – a button for example – which is the expected thing from a message box.
- The text of the message repeats the title. Unnecessary tautology.
- There is no visible reference to anything on the screen.
Design for humans: Do not show the message.
