This is how I would try and do it.. I would also color code the numbers so that if you have a good mark it's green, but if you aren't doing so well then it would be orange like this... You could just do something in your code like if (PERCENTAGE <= 30) { makeColorOrange(); } if (PERCENTAGE > 30 || PERCENTAGE < 50) { makeColorYellow(); } else ...

Users will want to have full control of the content they post. This will be the case whether the context is a social networking site, a discussion forum, themed communities etc. If you block the possibility for a user to remove content they have added to the site you will produce agitation in that user. And if you keep content posted/accessible that a user ...

Have the "add new" option within each level of the hierarchy at the place in which it would occur. This is simpler and removes some ambiguity about where the new element will be created. download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups

The tree model is more visual and easier to use than the "folder hierarchy model" (but certainly harder to code) You can grab inspiration in the genealogy website like myheritage but also on some hierarchy builder like Writemaps. Here is a quick mockup, I hope it will help.

I would repeat the selected items with their checked box on the top of the table when the user navigates to another page. This has the benefit of keeping them visible and allow the user to uncheck one of them any time. The drawback is when the user wants to select a lot of items, there isn't much more room for the paginated items. How to handle this ...

The CTRL+F search in current versions of browsers perform search which treats the entered phrase as case insensitive and finds only exact matches, treating the text on the site as a one big object. Also it makes user "go to results" not "results go to user". I've implemented search on my page because: words user entered could appear in a single record in ...

Jakob Nielson describes the 3 time limits which he calls the 'Response-Time Limits': There are 3 main time limits (which are determined by human perceptual abilities) to keep in mind when optimizing web and application performance It is an article written in 1993, but three years ago he published a new research report on website response times ...

Word clouds are completely useless. Two patterns here (making a bunch of assumptions about your needs) might be: Perform semantic analysis on the answers to strip away filler words (and possibly group together phrases), and then display words by frequency in a simple bar chart. Bar charts are one of the easiest-to-understand visualizations of categorical ...

I recall that 2 sec is when some start dropping out nowadays. Of course it depends on the site and the situation. Also it depends on the timing of separate parts of the site. For example, layout, text, and image placeholders might load earlier while images load later. Other stuff can happen in the background. Perceived performance is more important than ...

What about displaying the next page of results below the first page? Show the first 10 results, then have a "show next 10" button at the bottom. It loads the next "page" of results below the existing set. The context remains the same so you can maintain the selected rows. I've never seen this pattern before but I can imagine it working well.

An analogy first: A pig looks different than a horse. They have different uses and characteristics, and seeing them we instantly set our minds to their specific context. A mule and a donkey look similar, but they have very different abilities and uses. If you could make a mule and a donkey from scratch, wouldn't you make them look more different than they ...

A good example of editing/commenting is also Google Docs as well as HackPad. More in general, I think what works well is something that clearly identify the wrong part (i.e. red color or strike through line), the solution (i.e. uppercase or bold), and having the ability to have additional information about the specific issue––maybe a little "i" icon that on ...

As Dan pointed out, consulting a lawyer is the best thing you can do as they would understand those details better and can highlight the nitty gritties you need to be aware of that. That said, this link should be a good starting point for you as there is a website component mentioned as per the highlights. To quote the article If a large organization ...
