I believe a gradual sign up process is better. In the sidebar somewhere, you can show a cool graph denoting the percentage of profile completeness with a message that higher percentage leads to better content(or whatever you have). LinkedIn does a decent job in pushing the users to complete their profile. Also you can take a cue from various dating sites ...

It all has to do with effort and reward. If the user feels that the reward (getting to use your service/product) is greater than the effort (following through with the sign up process) , the product will be used. For example, if there's a long log in/register process to see a funny cat very few will probably log in. If there's a long log in/register process ...

The days of registration via any kind of form i thought had died, especially on a mobile where text input=hell on earth. My advice is that you need to go back to business and figure out if you can allow signup and signin to be the same and that the login can be accomplished via an API such as google + or twitter

Why does the user want to link their other accounts to your service? Some apps ask for this in order to pull existing information off the user's other accounts. In this case, there would be oAuth and other APIs available to allow you to access the data once the user has signed in. Many games use this mechanism to allow you to invite your facebook friends to ...

When you have non-native English speakers, you should AVOID at all costs the simultaneous use of "Sign in" and "Sign up". It is not distinct enough for them. My first times using these logging-in sites, I was several times loosing time, till I got the meaning. Consider replacing "Sign in" by "Log in" or "Log on".

The initial screen should simply present the standard username/email and password fields and the button should be something generic like "Proceed" or "Go" (or even just a right-facing arrow). If the account exists and the password matches, then you simply proceed with the log-in as usual. If the account doesn't exist or it exists but the password is wrong, ...

In general, always confirm email address you receive unless the sign-in is done via the email provider (OpenID/OAuth). This prevents sign up with the wrong email address both intentionally and by mistake. Specifically regarding this question: If the account is a cooperate account (an account officially affiliated with the company with privileges to act on ...

I'm not sure what you mean by 'company network' but I hope my thoughts may help you clear your question anyways: If you offer two ways to sign up with your service thats fine. But don't try to over-think it. Sign-Up through linkedin: You know that the person has a valid linkedin account – but a.f.a.I.k. there's no way you can find out if the email address ...

You answered your own question! :) I think you should allow users to sign up without JavaScript. Users want an easy experience, they don't want to follow steps like how to enable JavaScript - they just want to sign up, do want they need to do and they're done. It's simply too much work to enable JavaScript. So I think the solution you gave in your answer ...

Jakob Nielsen warns about using automatic popups (even though old javascript popups aren't technically the same thing as modal windows, they have the same basic function) - http://www.nngroup.com/articles/most-hated-advertising-techniques/. These surveys are based on ads and not regular site content, but I think that there's a big chans that the users will ...

There seems to be a common misconception that different apps should have different UX. I contend that what is good for ECRM is also good for a supply chain application. Ask them if they would like different UX design in Work versus Excel. Find some standard guideline to support that UX design. I personally don't like modal. I found this in some Microsoft UX ...
