I'm amazed by these figures over using the scroll wheel. Is there any indication of how much scrolling was involved in the page? I tend to find users use scrollbar dragging when they need to go a 'long way' and the scroll wheel when they want to slowly scan the page at reading pace

comment What should be considered when launching a Wikipedia-esque site to make it as useful as possible?
Take a look at Wikimedia (The wikipedia people) as they provide an infrastructure you can use. Apart from that I can't offer any more except to use wikipedia as a baseline. Wikipedia is pretty all-encompassing and offers all users the ability to add and edit content - is there any reason you can't achieve whatever it is you're trying to achieve using wikipedia itself?

comment How to design a form that requires the user fill in one text field out of three
Agree completely. Having come from a dev background and now being a UXer I sometimes feel VERY guilty when I tell the devs how I need things to work. It rarely lasts.

Rather you than me! I think I'd be conscious to back everything up with citations - a lot of people think UX is made up BS! (then again a lot of people supported the Nazi party. People are stupid)

I did wonder that too. Auto-detecting the format is one thing, autocomplete for a field like this seems very odd!
