Yes, I absolutely know there are other threads on this.

Yes, I am posting this one anyway.

The problem with consolidating and then closing separate threads is that the importance of the topic is then lost on the developers. "Hey, there's only one thread so it's no big deal".

It is a big deal. The bright red error messages spamming endlessly in the dead center of the screen is asinine. It's an easy fix, regardless of the comments made by BW over the last YEAR. Just allow the frame to be moved elsewhere.

Leaving it as it is now is ridiculous.

Wait what error text are you talking about? Are you admitting to macroing?

I believe he's talking about the red text that pops up to warn you of an error. For instance, if I'm on my scoundrel and try to take cover near the edge of a piece of terrain I'll get an "Unknown effect result" error. I don't find it distracting but it's also only popping up once or twice.

Another example would be in Voidstar where it's warning you at the attackers have already cleared the room and you need to move on to the next room.

It is better to disable these freaking warzone intros and spacebar-screens...
