@edthethird I thought it was a hell ban

comment Automatic calling system: “Press star” or “Press asterisk”?
FYI, asterisk in Spanish is asterisco, which sounds very similar, so no problem here. On the other hand, we'd have a hard time guessing * as star.

comment Why do some keyboards extend the Return key up into the backslash?
In the old Europe, that's kind of the standard (with our wéírd ñ and ç).

comment Credits or Money?
There's even an ISO 31 for the comma-dot issue. However, it basically says that both of them are okay (not much thought was put there): the decimal sign is either the comma on the line or the point on the line.

comment Are people sick of logins?
I only visit that question/answer site when I forget to check the google link before clicking on it. However, I'm probably not representative to the average visitor (nor other programmers in general).

comment Best way to create a timespan GUI element?
It's a good idea for scientific people. But what does being in the middle of "an hour ago" and "a minute ago" mean for the average Joe? probably ~30 min ago, which is not true in a log scale.

comment Why are vote buttons on Stack Exchange shown when they can't be used?
I think this is also missing another important point. It will show the non-logged in users what they are missing out. As well as to the users with not enough reputation of what they'd be able to do with more reputation. So surely it'll help boosting the conversion ratio.

comment Tests on more “human-ish” forms
I just did, and it nicely expands the other answers. It answers the second part of my concerns: does it depend on the context? (yes)

comment Tests on more “human-ish” forms
That article is exactly what I was looking for, thank you so much. I'll also add Luke W website to my favourites to read more articles from him. I think that, for repetitive use, a simple form would perform better but for a single use per user (as in register) the narrative could add up, as seen in the article you linked.

comment Having an icon to replace 'Forgotten username and password?'
As a sidenote, that @stackoverflow.com gave me the hope that there was the possibility to get an email account here for a moment.

comment Why do credit card forms ask for Visa, MasterCard, etc.?
Sorry, but IMO it doesn't make much sense... There is already a lot of redundant information to check for errors from the supplier (number + name + date + CSV) to see if it was a valid card. It's just another barrier for the user because that's how it's been done. Avoid setting up as many barriers as you can.
