comment 3 column layout for a video player page?
You might also review ojr.org/ojr/stories/070312ruel which includes studies by Nielsen. And Tom Roberts has a nice article on white space: idratherbewriting.com/2007/07/09/white-space-in-web-design. Findings generally come out across all these articles the same way - it improves comprehension, is easier on the eye, focuses attention, etc.

comment Why Do Long, Ugly Sales Pages Convert?
"the more you write, the more is can fool the reader into thinking that the product is authentic" Whoa. No. I don't believe this is true. Any research to back up this claim?

comment Managing a list of tasks for students
@dnbrv Correct - which is part of what the OP is looking for, advice/direction because "I'm having trouble giving a rational reason as to why it's not ideal because I can't find any related research".

comment Is adding commas to numbers a cultural thing?
"Cultural" arguably. Countries tend to adopt guidelines for usage when they adopt their official numerical system. For example, when decimilization was adopted by Australia in the late 60s, the government published ways in which numbers would be written. The guides included notes regarding preferences from various institutions (eg. banks). In effect, they were publishing a style guide for the country. Many other modern states have done similar. FYI.

comment Should field labels be nouns or verbs?
Assaf, I think natural language - such as your example - has it's place, but I was more concerned with the concept of noun vs. verb as other posters have addressed.

comment Should people be able to change their usernames?
You're right, user6. Admins should always have a method to get in there and make the change.

There's a lot to be said about determining "the best option", but I take your point.
