comment What is the best way to inspire users to choose strong password?
@AndreyBotalov: "If attacker has the same IP as ordinary users" - how could this be? :) У вас в Белоруссии IP-адресов мало? :)

comment What is the best way to inspire users to choose strong password?
@AndreyBotalov: There are about (approx.) 10% of users under NAT and about (approx.) 10% of these users could exceed 10 times login limit. If they will exceed the limit, then these users will simply restore the password. Because of this (approx.) 1% of users you are trying to force all 100% to invent long and complicated passwords. IMHO it is not useful for users.

comment Removing placeholder text on focus
+1, thank you for description of the user testing. Could you tell (if it is not a secret) what else confused users except placeholders? Or what other improvements you made after user testing? It is very interesting because users surprise me a lot sometimes :)

comment Removing placeholder text on focus
+1, I agree, that in most cases placeholder not needed at all, label is enough and input should be blank (without placeholder text). But there are situations when you are limited in space (like login forms) and placeholder solve this limitation. By the way, what was the average age of tested users?

comment Why do most dashboards use capital words?
@BartGijssens IF ALL WORDS WILL BE UPPERCASED THAN IT WILL MORE PROMINENT THAN USER USED TO READ. BUT IT IS HARD TO READ FOR USER. IMAGINE IF ALL THE WORDS IN THE BOOKS WILL BE UPPERCASED. Natural case of letters is easier to read.

comment Removing placeholder text on focus
+1 I completely agree that using placeholder in most cases is the bad practice. But there are some cases when using placeholder is good solution. Example: login form in the topbar of the site. There are no extra space for labels and it is better to use placeholders in this case.

comment Submit button on top of the long form
Someday I will found the example of such form and I will post the link to that form here :) About "can't just press the submit button" - Submit button could be disabled if not all required inputs are filled and the form is not ready to be submitted.

comment Submit button on top of the long form
@BenBrocka Similar approach is used for 2-level menu on Bootstrap site - twitter.github.com/bootstrap/base-css.html (try to scroll the page) and imho it would be useful for forms too as you described.

@BenBrocka +1 Great solution. IMHO fixed block with "Submit" button solves all the problems with long forms.
