I would blame it on bad form design. Often personal information like address, city, phone number and email are considered to be standard inputs for forms. It's used because other forms use them too. When I worked for an ecommerce company I asked them questions about their forms. I asked them why there were two input for phone numbers (optional). They said ...


I'm a little unclear on the form you filled up; it sounds like an online coupon you filled out and not an actual membership form. I can see legitimate reasons for collecting phone numbers for gym members (e.g. a way to contact you if they find a lost object of yours, emergency contact in case of accident) but in this case it sounds most likely like they're ...


Potentially for further identification of the gym member. i'm not sure what other information they may have asked for in the form, but it is possible (not probable) that two members have the same name, birthday, and several other identifying features, but they're not too likely to have the same phone number.


Here are three reasons: Collecting numbers database for spam Use phone number as a login (not your case) Bad form design


Although it's true that some domain have had bad reputation and a lot of misuse, we can't predict what is going to happen next, a lot of things change and many of the things that have changed in the past few years involve more trust, better behaviour (in some aspects), more regulations about domain purchase and more education about Internet related things. ...


No. People place the most amount of trust primarily in .com, .org, and .gov and secondarily in .net. All other TLDs are subject to additional scrutiny by your users. In addition if I just know your domain, but not the TLD you are using. I'm going to guess, and I'm willing to bet most of your users will guess ".com". .com should always be the primary ...


Just bought a few of the new TLD domain names as they fit with certain businesses. For example bought http://www.bagel.coffee for a bagel shop. And bought http://www.Lawyer.coffee for a Los Angeles Family Law Firm. So it really depends on who is going to be using these, and their purpose. My thought is they are good marketing and an easy way to say the ...


Copy / paste is the clunkiest thing when it comes to mobile. You can at least ease the pain of copying by embedding the functionality into a one-tap button and have that perform the copying part for you. This example is from addthis.com. Clicking on "Grab It" automatically copies the code in the box. This solution is also super convenient for users on ...


There is a clear distinction: Helvetica is a type family. Helvetica Bold is a typeface. 12pt Helvetica Bold is a font. I remember the definition this way: Family > Face > Font


There isn't a clear difference. There is no hard-and-fast definitions of the two. As other's have pointed out, common usage is that the font is specific to a set of actual letters (be it physical or digital) and typeface is the overall design (that would usually be applied to a number of fonts as a family). A physical example would be: Futura Bold 12pt ...


A typeface is a distinct design of glyphs, a font is a specific variant therof, consisting of a full set of glyphs. Helvetica is a typeface, as is Courier. They are different typefaces, and by definition different fonts. Helvetica condensed bold is a font, as is Helvetica italic. They both belong to the Helvetica typeface, but they are different fonts.


I think the best explanation I have found was in this article which explains how fonts constitute a typeface. To quote the article A typeface is a family of fonts (very often by the same designer). Within a typeface there will be fonts of varying weights or other variations. E.g., light, bold, semi-bold, condensed, italic, etc. Each such variation ...
