We have this large HMI application that splits into 3 distinct softwares. One is an editor which user uses to define the plant and other stuff related to it. Pretty big software!
We have pollshed it through the years and I'm sure we have little to zero bugs.

In it, users are informed about their input mistakes by message boxes and it's pretty common that a client calls and complains about the bugs the software has. When we ask them to whatsapp us an image of the bug they usally send an image of a messagebox. They don't event try reading the message it shows. Their first assumption is always is every messagebox shows a bug!

This has lead me to think about different way of showing user erros/mistakes.
