Recently I worked in a titan based project. Depending on the issues I found, I tried to prepare the following checklist. This checklist specifies some generic issues that may occur in this innocent looking create form. Some of these issues are so trivial that we may take those for granted. But these issues do exist. Merely depending on a checklist is never a good idea, however, having one can prove to be a valuable aid in our testing. Moreover, this will help developers to BAT their fixes.

Please comment if any of the points is confusing to you. Your comments / advices / criticisms will be highly appreciated.
