Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Using the url to open a deleted run
404 error page is shown
TCMS tell the user this run is deleted, and give the link to go to home page.
Are you sure it's necessary to tell user the concrete reason why a TestRun does not exists, or any other object, such as TestPlan and TestCase, don't exist. 404 page is just being used to describe the fact that a requested resource does not exists, whatever reason causes the fact, for example deleted, disabled, or just hided temporarily.
In my opinion, the status code 404 in HTTP protocol can be treated as a notification against an error. It just tells requester the requested resource does not exist. Based on this opinion, what do you think to redesign the 404 page to provide more friendly messages rather than some simple error words.
