comment Communicating optional, non-exclusive paths through a registration process
First of all, thanks for the effort! We actually have something in place similar to top portion of your suggestion. We had initially shied away from including all the courses together, so as to clarify/emphasis the failed courses. Given your suggestion we might have to revisit that layout.

comment Communicating optional, non-exclusive paths through a registration process
In this scenario that would encourage users to miss the red panel entirely—they'd then wonder why only half their registration has gone through. If that sounds unlikely, I can assure your our user base is large enough, and young enough this would happen quite frequently.

comment Password field in cleartext
I recommend defaulting to a masked field, but having a "reveal password" checkbox close by. This way the user can judge if they're in a secure enough environment to display an unmasked password.

comment Taking input from user on the homepage
While @JimmyBreck-McKye asked some pertinent questions required to answer this question fully, at first glance, you may want to think about changing the 'continue' button to be more descriptive of the action the user is taking e.g. 'Subscribe'. This may not prevent all mistaken sign-up attempts, but it's a start.

comment Colors for the date period
Can you add more detail to your question? Why do you think it'll be distracting? Can you provide a mockup?

comment Buttons replacing a link for a consistent style
Per your title, I wouldn't suggest trying to aim for a consistent style, but a consistent user interface. They may or may not be the same thing.

comment How to indicate container is scrollable without scroll bars
Wouldn't removing scroll bars also qualify as going "against the plaform"?

Are you saying fading the bottom edge isn't possible? That's nuts.
