You could only allow the user to add items through the selection screen, and force them to use another, more complex, avenue to remove them. Some ideas for removing: Only letting them remove things at certain times of the day Make them submit a request to remove something, have a fifteen minute or so wait period, then let them remove it Have a puzzle, ...

You can also think of time limiting the immutable property. Like once a website and max-allowed-time is set, it is immutable for 3 days. User need to wait for 3 days to make any chages. You can also feature limit (display ads or slowdown the site on client side) after max-allowed-time to discourage site usage beyond set time limits.

Grid views can indeed allow for bigger thumbnails - although not necessarily, as the height of a row on a list view could be the same height as a cell in a grid view. The main differences, IMHO, are: Grid view offers a greater number of thumbnails to the user, at any one time, than list view given the same screen real estate. This is because a list view ...

If you are aiming at desktop and mouse, have you thought of user resizable dropdowns? Image from Google: You could even remember the last size, and let users decide the best number.

The only recommendation found is to not use a List Box when there are only two items (male/female) selection. The popular list box example is the country selector, where ...

There's no research that I can see from my own quick Googling. The above answers are quite subjective also. If we are talking subjectively, I agree with @BDD - jumping to the next item is preferable considering it's user ordered. But let's be objective. I would recommend: Look at your competitors. I've screen shotted "Reminders" from iOS for you. They ...

I think either would be acceptable, but I would conduct user testing to see what your users think. In general though while I'm developing lists, I like to it jump to the next task, so it would go with this example and have all the tasks shift upward. So it would be something like this example. Task 1 item 2 is deleted Task 1 Task 2 ** ...
