comment Best practice for no records found?
As I see it (without beint a native English speaker) the word "records" in an IT context means the parts that make a computer file, but it also has a meaning to normal people like when somebody says "let me check my records", that is similar to the computer file related meaning but is not IT specific. So I'll go with the generic "no records found".

comment Should I avoid changing a “clunky” UI?
@Gutblender: before doing anything I'd check if this behavior is really annoying for the users, or it annoys me and only me.

comment Is this rotating cube interface user-friendly?
I think the cube should rotate much faster, to give the user more opportunities to enter data. This would allow to add more fields to the form!

comment Next vs. Continue
"Next" is informative, while "Continue" is imperative. I try not to tell the users what to do so I'd use "Next".

comment Is the term 'field' too technical when giving messages on a form?
@Bart Gijssens: it is terminology from the 80-column card punch; a "field" was the term for several consecutive columns containing a single data item, like for example 6 cols containing a pre-Y2K date. The set of all fields is a "recod".

comment Should image overlays have a close button?
There are two use cases: 1- The user wants to play safe 2- The device doesn't have an "Esc" key (mobile) and touching somewhere else might trigger some other action.

comment What is the best way to deal with very complex forms?
There is another suggestion I recalled after my prior comments: in long forms it is very handy for the user to highlight the "current field", the one that has the focus. Browsers now apply an "outline" automatically, which can be configured. I also like to slightly change the background color. This helps the user to get back th where he was working after having looked somewhere else, his papers usually.
