Kunena 5.2 RC 1 Released (Yesterday)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public release candidate of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 RC1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

Question Validator Starts out highlighted upon new topic

The Blue Eagle template did not highlight the title field when first opening a new topic as seen here:

This made a lot of sense because you have not yet clicked outside of the field. As soon as you click outside of it is when the validator fires. In K5 you can see the title validator fire right away:

This gives off the vibe that the user "forgot to type something" even though they just opened a new topic and did not click outside of the required field. I'm guess the intent of this was to indicate to the user that the field is required from the get go. Most people who have ever used a forum know that the title field is required. For those who are new to this, the validator nicely reminds you to fill out this field in case you missed it.

I'm proposing that the validator not be fired right away or that it having the basic border highlighting (currently when clicking outside of it, the box-shadow goes away and becomes a red border). In addition to this, the validator seems less highlighted when clicking outside of it when empty into the body area. I would actually expect the styling to be swapped (super highlight when clicked out of the title area and lightly highlighted when in it upon first view of the page).
