comment How should I indicate an added row of buttons above the iPad's keyboard is scrollable?
I am not a fan of this approach, not only does it look broken in design, because the interface is using buttons that look like the keyboard (which is hyper-realistic of an actual Apple keyboard), this could never happen for real. All design principles are broken, and this will likely confuse the user.

I would seriously reconsider your approach of using the same style buttons as the keyboard. This would confuse me and I think the issue you are facing in indicating this area as scrollable is a deeper problem with the button style choice. Have you tested this with any users?

comment Creating Login Processes
I wouldn’t say it is about “your beliefs” as you put it, as user-centered designers we should be exploring what is the best process for our user base. To say “without doubt” that evidence is not required is foolhardy. I find this particularly presumptuous. I also think that competitive analysis of other websites with large UX teams, such as Amazon can be a useful resource and a good benchmark to design something that is better for your audience.

comment Is the color red really appropriate for form validation errors?
Not a problem at all, happy to help. The stop light works in that it commands attention and has to be noticed, much like the user needs their attention and focus drawn to an error.

comment What UX implications should I be aware of when designing an enterprise website/intranet on SharePoint
Thank you for this Nick. Apologies it is such a big question, I was trying to make it accessible to a number of viewpoints (I hope I pull it off). What I didn’t mention was that there is a possibility of pursuing a Microsoft Metro style for the interface design too. I get the impression that SP might struggle with this?

comment Where do campaign landing pages belong in my site architecture? How do I manage them?
I wonder if you could come to a compromise with the client by seeing if they would agree to visually ‘knocking back’ the regular UI items if they still need to be in the view. This way you would still have emphasis on the marketing campaign message while maintaining full functionality. Worth exploring.

Absolutely, the idea is to influence the required action and then once this has been completed, provide some further rabbit holes for the user to progress down. A dead end would not capitalise on the experience.
