We all get error messages - pop-ups generated by computers or other technology when something goes wrong.
And "something went wrong" is often all we get told. There is a current trend in error messaging towards being totally and thoroughly unhelpful.
Error messages are meant to explain the problem and offer solutions. This is what we, the users, need them to do.
It is not what they always do.
