comment Why is it important to focus on user needs as opposed to requests?
Urban legend or actually documented? Sounds weird enough to be true...

comment What is the least ambiguous way to select a date range?
I like the idea of a calendar (and not a simple start-stop) as well. Normally when I'm burning vacation I end up using staggered days (Tues/Thurs off for 3 weeks... Mon/Tues/weds off for two weeks... etc). Taking days off aren't necessarily all going to be contiguous. This way as well, you can select days off and not worry about weekend/holidays being included.

comment Is the discount more important than the price?
I remember the flop that was "JCPenney's no sales" 2012... and reverting back in 2013: business.time.com/2013/05/02/… forbes.com/sites/barbarathau/2013/05/08/…

comment Learning “The Art” of Community Creation, Curation and Driving
The Amazon link has a "Newer Edition Available"/"Preorder" link - July 25th (without trying to devolve into conversation). Definitely looks up my alley.

I'll look into reworking this to remove extraneous information to see if I can get it unholded... I'll also look into that book (New edition due in July apparently btw).

comment Why we don't use wider interfaces on wide screens
Screens aren't built for highlighting or note taking in the margins though.

comment Preventing users from closing browser tab. Bad idea?
@AndroidHustle For example, if you start typing something HERE and go to exit, you get a warning. Why? Loss of data when you lose the half typed post. Something like THAT is understandable You haven't finished your post, are you sure you want to leave?. Not sure I'd feel good about other pop-ups. I'd put them in the same league as pop-unders.

comment How to “force” users to upgrade their browser?
@greenforest Take the fact that CF is going to be a subset of IE - and a subset of OLD IE at that... and that not many sites put forward something like my example - I would expect the % of CF users to be very low. I would also separate the options on my site (Want/Need to keep IE? Use CF. Want to try something new? Try on of these: C,FF,S,IE10). Its a valid option for those without other options.

@naught101 Yeah... More information on the "We can't help you, Try this:" page couldn't hurt. I posted this example (basecamp) because its the one example that I've ran into that just worked easily (Plugin and Done).
