and we should not ignore the error messages, if it is red it should not be ignored. You can ignore the green ones.
If you don't understand the error message, post it here, or create an issue page and track ticket. If it is an expected error,
e.g. you cut your wifi connection and try to save the page, the error messages should say so -- or at least try to.
Should we add a "report" button that sends the error messages back to us?
There are also a lot of little error messages that can be fixed by some checks for 'undefined', there where some errors that where
triggered when a halo was forced to align without being in the world. For this I did not even open a ticket...

But based on them we could easily implement preferences that could then also be accessed/modified using UI/Parts inside Lively. This would solve the show-or-show-not error problem, I guess.

This allowed you to read the messages as long as you wish, let you see them without having to open browser tools and change windows, let you easily cut/paste/eval and especially do a -find- operation on any of the text, all almost for free (ie, a tiny amount of code). This, and an LK debugger (and changeSets ;-) would catapult us to a higher level of productivity.
