comment Should I put “.” at the end of messages for mobile users?
Personally, I would say that by including the fullstop it is showing that you are clear with your error, your sentence has ended - as has the message. One more character isn't going to affect bandwidth or display so I would recommend going with it.

Yes, I think it goes without saying that a skinned dropdown needs to have at least the same functionality as a native dropdown. My dropdowns certainly do that, although in saying that dropdowns don't exactly have a massive array of features ;)

comment Should “Like us on Facebook” be a required field on a form?
I honestly think this is really bad practice. Forcing someone to like your page is just bad IMO.

@RogerAttrill Interestingly, I notice that Asos www.asos.com do ask for an email address twice. I know they spend a lot of money on their user journey and UX in general.

comment Preventing a user from pasting from the clipboard into a mandatory form field
I'm not sure I follow you. Are you saying it is bad UX, or isn't? The confirmation email field is fairly standard I would say, and is used to check the two email addresses are the same so that email communication to the customer is going to the right place. It's hard to tell if this method of forcing the users to check their email address is preventing bad email addresses being entered.

If you copy the original text and paste into the second field, the text that is pasted is what was in your clipboard before the original email copy. To answer your question - there's no error message to tell them they can't copy/paste these two fields.
