comment When conducting guerilla testing, do you ever offer any incentive, or just rely on people's goodwill?
@Erics That might work. But I was working for a university at the time and they tend to frown upon using school money to buy drinks for people :D

comment Better Term for “Web Design and Development” Company
Interview your customers or people who you'd like to be your customers. Ask them what they think. Do card sorting. Use a term that resonates with your customers, not what you'd like it to be.

comment Is a “repeat password” field necessary in a signup page?
This doesn't address the issue. Users still have to sign up with OpenID/Facebook/Twitter etc in order to sign into other sites/apps. You can't assume that they have those accounts or would want to use those accounts to sign in.

comment Can stairs have a user experience?
Everyone who visits me at my apartment always comments on the stairs leading up to the door because they are horribly designed. The rise height/tread depth ratio is terribly out of step (pun!). The rise height is very tall so you have to make awkward steps to get up and down them. +1 for considering ergonomics and safety as a part of UX.

+1 for providing the only appropriate answer to this question and not just a wild guess disguised as a thoughtful, measured response.

comment Home button vs Logo link?
From a cost/benefit perspective, what do you have to lose if you have both?

comment Helping participants in usability tests
Thanks for the feedback. So should I have annotations with the participant's results indicating that I helped them? I like the idea of turning the test into an interview. That way I can gather some legitimate feedback.

comment Helping participants in usability tests
Thanks for the feedback all. @Kaz, yes I know there is a balance. My question, again, is what is the balance? Where does one draw a line? How much help can I give without invalidating the test?
