comment Explaining “circular reference” to a non-technical end user
Mark them unavailable and why. Otherwise the user is, again, confused. And now that we're telling them why, we're back to the original question - how to explain it to them? And now we've come ... ahem ... full "circle".

comment Explaining “circular reference” to a non-technical end user
I want to upvote your answer for the simple error message but can't because I completely disagree with pre-filtering the list. It's bad UI design, IMO, when the UI changes in front of the user's very eyes. It's a proverbial "pulling the rug from under their feet." "Where the hell did my choices go!?" is likely the reaction.

@BartGijssens I don't want to use "circular reference" or "loop". Both are too technical, IMO.

comment Explaining “circular reference” to a non-technical end user
I like this but there are multiple situations where this could happen so I was hoping I could explain it more generally. Two specific examples are: 1. adding a part to a list of subparts and 2. adding a task to a subtask.
