I just got done with my Sign Up form set up for my File Sharing & Hosting service and now I'm at a point where I'm developing the returning of form errors.
There are 6 fields, and they are all mandatory which is said in the paragraph above the form. Error messages will be displayed in red and under the input it is about.
I came up with some error messages, but I am not sure if they are the most user friendly or if I need to reword them in any way for more consistency?
