Marjan, yes, why? How can you solve a task without knowing why it's needed? :)

comment Why should we ask the password twice during registration?
@EricBréchemier, what was a reason for bad feeling? I see poor implementation problem rather than problem with pattern itself.

@SteveWortham, user don't have to remember his password, there is checkbox "remember me" for that (proven recognizable UI element). Yep, that would be really interesting, I'll try to get that stat.

@EricBréchemier, You can't speak about security in absolute values "secure" / "not secure". Nothing is absolutely secure. The question is "is it secure enought?". User will decide it himself, if he like, he will keep default password. If not, he will change it. In your case user will have to ALWAYS think about password, in my case this is optional. Please fill the difference.

comment Nested Creation Forms
As I can understand, your use case is to give user ability to create a new person and then fill person properties, right? Why you have to do it in a single window?

comment Is it good user experience to only require an email address at signup?
Im sorry, Im bored to argue. Here is example: serverdensity.com monitoring service, they send password in email when you register, so according to your comments "those loosers have security issue"? Im not sure. Great and friendly site.

comment Is it good user experience to only require an email address at signup?
@JoshuaDrake excuse me, can you be a bit more clear. I can't get your point. What im trying to say is that ussualy email is not displayed, So if someone will register on facebook with same name as mine, my friends won't be able to determine wich account is fake. Is that clear? Of course its more secure not to send password, use two stage verification using mobile phone maybe. But you have to understand what kind of data you protecting if data is not critical, there is no need in complex security processes! Can you provide real life example to confirm im not right?

comment Which is the best way to select a language from 400 possibilities?
Maybe its a bit offtopic, but I can't belive anything can be translated to 400 languages. Most popular pages on wiki has a bit more than 100 translations (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia). What kind of business task can requre this universal language selector? I see a clear picture of this selector in real life: Frame 1 "Choose language using 1 of 10 possible options", Frame 2: "Sorry, there is no content in selected language". Are you solving real life problem or something abstract?

@AndreasBonini, nothing will stop me from registring on facebook with newly registered email like randomEmailG72Fzs@gmail.com, set name to "Andreas Bonini" and post whatever I like. it doesn't matter how password will be delivered. Since email is actually hidden, no one will be able to validate identity.

comment Is it good user experience to only require an email address at signup?
@DannyVarod, I care about security a lot. Your example is bad for a following reason: If someone can read my email the war is already lost. As attaker, I can start password recovery process, read password recovery link form my victim's email and im done. So hiding password from mail won't add extra securitiy. Unless someone have acess to your PC/Email account. But in this case I'd rather worry about my paypal account, corporate KBs with where live servers data is stored etc..

@JoshuaDrake NO! simple example: we have a local mountain bike club, and we counduct some races during summer. I've made a simple online registration app where you have an account and can register to races. You can only register/unregister and enter name. No one cares if someone's identity will be stolen: nothing will happen. You just come to race and if you'r not in list - register again.
