comment How to gently lock a form when user is still typing (after finished countdown)?
I really like this approach. I think its showing your users how far they got in the allotted time, but it also lets them complete their last sentence. Since you know the position to show the bubble, you can also note this with the submission and store both the complete and partially complete story

comment When the username is an email address should the field be called 'username' or 'email'?
How do you solve for this at the login screen? This helps at the signup process but when I access your site a month later and have to log in, how am I to remember which email address I used?

comment When the username is an email address should the field be called 'username' or 'email'?
To add to what @Mariusz observed, my question was motivated by a website with a field labeled username and some additional text saying "your username is your email address". As a user it took me a few ticks of remembering my username then noticing the extra text. I was asking to see if it was a stupid user or a less than ideal design.

comment Can higher speeds harm the user experience?
I think the reason for the downvote is that a really fast Pacman is more of a bad game mechanic rather than a bad user experience.

comment Can higher speeds harm the user experience?
Upvoted. I think the Pacman example is a bit of a stretch, bit the general rule is well stated.

comment What fields to drop from the registration form?
Sort of offtopic, but have you considered a single sign on option like OpenID, LinkedIn, or Facebook? This provides your users with a fast way to register and may provide you with info about that person.
