Great to see you are building a case for not doing this. From a User Experience perspective, here is some ammunition to help build your case: Norman Nielsen Group - The Most Hated Advertising Techniques: 95% of users (based on 605 respondents) said that their web experience was impacted "negatively" or "very negatively". I recommend reading the full ...

I'd combine a push notification with an in-app confirmation option. For example, if you want everyone to confirm within 6 hours before the meeting, you can send a push notification to everyone who opted in for the meeting 6 hours before the start time of the meeting. If a user clicks the notification, they are taken to the app where the top confirmation ...

It might be instructive to look at how other big players are handling this. If the 'big guys' are doing it then it's a reasonable assumption that many of your users will be familiar with the approach. Here's a non-scientifically selected sample based on what I happen to have open in Chrome right now... Facebook Avatar | Name Twitter Avatar only Stack ...

There's no right or wrong way in doing this. It depends on who your users are, the overall look and spacing of your UI and the purpose of your application. If you look at Google support threads there are several discussions about users who are having trouble finding the "Sign Out" button after it was moved into the dropdown. I myself worked with users who ...

Think about the user's tasks. They're using the app for a particular purpose, working toward certain goals. Ads are, therefore, distractions or hurdles in the way of reaching those goals. You might also be interested in reading about Banner Blindness.

It depends on many factors. Please avoid using popup unless you really want to get the users attention. Here in Sign in/Register popup is unacceptable. Number of fields in your sign up form If there are many fields say more than 6 it is better to go with a separate page. A Tabbed Modal or a Pop up will not match here. If your sign up form has less number ...

One thing you must consider for this particular comparison is what happens if the user has Javascript disabled? Without Javascript your AJAX call will not work (Asynchronous JavaScript And XML) Ajax without JavaScript Also it is likely that your popups will not work without javascript, sliders maybe with some clever CSS which can also be disabled How ...

I've experienced similar feedback from users, i.e preferring forms on a separate page rather than a modal box. Sign in and register are no exception. Don't think there are any prefered design patterns but personally I also think modal boxes are associated with pop ups, which can be pretty disruptive to the user.

It all depends upon what you are trying to achieve. If it's simply to prevent the user taking actions (such as posting in a forum), it seems overkill to destroy everything they've ever done and prevent them from actually logging in. Bear in mind that forum posts that are randomly deleted cause confusion when others have already replied - context is ...

It's bad practice to assume every user is familiar with keyboard commands and contextual menus, because many aren't (I know someone who just found out about CTRL + C/V, and he's college-educated and has been using computers for years). While they can benefit UX by streamlining commands, your interface and functionality should be able to stand on its own. ...
