Switch them around, and stick to plural: Whilst "1 Errors" looks rather clumsy, "Errors: 1" is ok. Errors 0 Errors 1 Errors 2 ... (Drawback is that the list of numbers is harder for the eye to scan in a table)

Firstly, I commend you for getting some genuine testing done on your design. Many products don't allow themselves this and suffer with a poor performing site as a result. However: ...Several users found the contact form section very big and loud and wanted me to get rid of the background I was using on it. After thinking about this for a while and ...

I would take a step back and look at what you need to accomplish for this product. Some factors that should come into play for this particular question: Which "tone" is the product speaking? Do you want it to be very technical, or to feel more friendly and talkative? How much space do you have available? How much development time is reasonable to spend on ...

If your audience is anything like software developers, they will report the bug over and over and over and over and over again if you don't implement number agreement. Save everybody lots of trouble and implement it from the start. It's not that much work.

I wouldn't use the word "mandatory"; "need" is better. Also, I'm not sure what the first alert about the KM is even supposed to convey to the user, so it's hard to give any suggestion on it. Here are my suggestions for the other three alerts: Also, if the user must have a Home Location setup for the app to work properly, you may want to have them set ...

That is quite a loud background, but I think there's a problem with the contact form as well. I don't think it's impossible to open with a contact form, but it doesn't work here. I'd pinpont the following (potential) flaws: The site doesn't follow social norms. You don't ask questions before telling people something about yourself, and why they should ...

This may not be an answer to the specific question you are asking ("Any specific site, application or book...?"), but perhaps it can help... A drag-n-drop, graphical interface for Set-Manipulation should have a strong mapping of screen-geography to some aspect of the data being represented. When viewing a selection of Sets, the arrangement of those Sets on ...

Well in short - and I'm sure your team has come to this conclusion already - users won't be able to run all of these in one fell swoop. The closest you could get would be to mimic Excel-like functionality whereby users can add cell-level functions to manipulate the values. My gut reaction/solution: Grids. 3,000-5,000 records is a trivial amount. Minuscule ...

The requirements sound like a good fit for a spreadsheet-like application to me: the primary focus should be on the data - display as much info as possible about the records (5000 is not that many data, but you could use infinite scroll techniques) autofilter-like search on the data, saved searches and tick-box selection would provide the best way to ...

"Any specific site, application or book where I can find more about such an approach?" None I know of. Your best bet may be some Ph.D/M.Sc visualisation research thesis. To get the UX design right need to understand the Users Domain and create a model of this in the system that they can interact with. What not many people realise is that SQL is a textual ...

Most websites seem so make use of the words "back" and "top" most of the times (see this list for examples) in various combinations (back to top, back to the top, to top, top,...). I do not completely understand what you mean with it not being "classy" enough. What is your definition of classy and which analysis shows that users find it insufficiently ...

I use an up-arrow and the word "Top". Regular Hovered Here is why I use it: It is intuitive - Everyone knows where it's going It is clear - Don't have to worry about ambiguous wording like 'Back to Top' It is simple - Minimal wording to reduce crowding of the button.
