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 ...

download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups I think you're looking at this the wrong way; It's less about the overall time consumption (because the difference, if done correctly, will be almost not so different). As mentioned by other people, having the social login will allow people to have less accounts to deal with (to ...

In case you want the user to sign-up to your service/ feed and fill in details about him/ her self, then using the term sign-up can be used. Rather than using 'sign-in' or 'sign up', many apps 'use continue with' as seen here ux archive The link should give you some inspiration on what works as it contains some of the most widely used apps along with ...

You may indeed get more interactions, but conversions could easily go either way... why should I sign up if I can vote anyway? I would be far more concerned with vote manipulation and would suggest the risks of that would outweigh any benefits. You could allow votes and add them to a "pending" list and apply them when the user signs up (based on a ...

I think a simple 'Sign In' gives you many more advantages. When its time for adding a mobile app, authenticating users through Google+ sign-in is easy. For users, its easier to remember that they just 'signed-in' for this app, so there is no confusion about remembering additional usernames etc. Major social sites are advocating a 'sign-in' as well, for ...

There are many reasons why you need to signup users. Perhaps one of the most important ones is to collect their data (name, email, etc). You can monetize these data later sending email offers, showing targeted content, enhancing their user experience etc. If you use a social login (Facebook, Google+) you have multiple additional benefits, for instance: ...

However it might be done, logging in and signing up are two different things. The sign up path is almost certainly more complex than the login path, regardless of whether social login or a more traditional login are used. These crucial differences are not negated just because the technology allows the process to be done in one click. For example, you may ...

Registration is only necessary if there is functionality or data associated with a logged in segment of users. For example, if you want to keep track of and persist a user's preferences or interaction on the site for the purpose of informing them later. You can track both of these for yourself without the need for a particular user registering. 3rd party ...

I think it's because there are two different data sources. Your Google information does not automatically show up on SO database, you have to be placed in there. By signing up, you create the instance of the user, and by doing it through Google, you are just moving your data to SO's. Then you sign in through Google, using the connection you established when ...

Let's tackle this from two sides: 1: On the perspective of Design: It provides options to the registering user. By having social plugins used for form completion and account registration, the user can expedite the process and the site can drive more turnovers/accounts by doing so. Its an easy solution to a common problem: Driving Usability. 2: On the ...
