comment What is the reason behind the upper-case-lower-case behaviour of the Apple iOS keyboard?
Just to clarify: it's not that lowercase characters don't become capitalized on iOS, it's that they're already capitalized.

comment Selecting many elements from a long list
If you go with HTML checkboxes, be sure to use <label> tags and set the "for" attribute correctly. This'll increase the size of the click target, and users who have to click 100 times will appreciate it!

You're right Monica, the question is clear--I apologize! However, the original poster links to a form where there is no default option and Afganistan is already selected (hence my confusion).

It might not be clear enough how to select March - November instead of November - March (esp. for the colorblind)

comment Is there any research into whether using the word “free” in a call to action button or any offer would enhance conversions
Good question, but someone else's research might not work for your specific case. This is just the kind of thing A/B testing is useful for (see optimizely.com/ab-testing).

comment Why don't most forms have a hover state?
Not sure I understand how Bootstrap/Zurb forms have a "hover state". FWIW however, Google search does use a hover style on non-focused form inputs: google.com/#q=foo

Or: "Less is more."

Monica, any data to support that? I'd hypothesize the opposite--once they are forced to go through the effort of opening the dropdown and choosing an option, they'll spend the time to at least find the correct one. Only testing will tell for sure.

This is trivial to implement and would help considerably (if not completely solve the problem). More upvotes!

comment What control to use to select multiple months?
Good point--hence, "as long as it truly is within a single year." (Pesikar wants to find a way to select "months within a year".) I'm assuming a year is one calendar year... if not, we'll need a different method :)
