If I understand correctly, they have to enter the digits one by one from left to right. This is bad interaction design for the following reasons: It violates the principle of least surprise. Users see a text boxe, they expect it to behave like a textbox. The conventions may not be ideal, but you have to take them into account. There's a lot of work between ...

currency input is a pain because everyone has different locales and expectations. (This is actually true for any kind of input). A solution I like (my liking this is not a good base for any usability standard) is the following setup: Present 2 boxes with a decimal separator in between +---------+ +-------+ $ | 0 0 | | 0 0 | ...

If you want to enter 50$, you have to type "5000" or "50.00", etc. I think this question speaks for itself.

I don't like the "5 minutes ago" or "two months ago" convention at all. I can tolerate "5 minutes ago", but when a dozen posts are all "two months ago" I want to know more granular detail to determine who posted first. I'd much rather see a real date and a real time, adjusted to my time zone, which I can select when I register to the site. If that is not ...

Why not set up one link that shows "Forgot username or password?" and sends an email with the username, and a link to optionally reset your password? If I had the decision, I would set up the site to sign in with an email address and only have a "Forgot password?" link.
