Maintain error message on page

Is there a way to keep the error message on the screen?  When a user clicks the error/info/warning message, the message goes away.  Is there a way to keep it on the page permanently?

For starters, what is the origin of the errors – Salesforce, Skuid, custom JS?

I’m trying to use the info message on page load when a customer hasn’t entered all information meeting our data quality standards (missing zip code or something like that).  I created an inline javascript that posts messages to the screen on page load with: 

           editor.handleMessages(                [{
                    message: "Contact is missing XXXXXX,

It works just fine, but I don’t want the user to be able to clear the message.  If they click on it, they need to reload the page to see the message again.

I think we’d have to add an option to the api like 

clearable : false

or something like that. Otherwise, you’re stuck with hacking the DOM.

That’s what I was afraid of.  Thanks though.
