I'm the Product Manager for Stack Exchange.

I'm told my job is to clean up messes and make things easy to use.

My first job was as a janitor, so the former is covered.

For the latter, I just need an infinite team of monkeys with Balsamiq. Seeking a dealer.

comment Multiselect value into a table
Yes, but I'm looking at your columns in step two, and they don't match up with the columns in step three. So, I guess my question is, where do you get the data to populate the table at the bottom just based on information the user put in in step two?

comment What factors are the most influential in the usability and UX of a mobile app, that utilizes crowd sourced information?
+1 for a good answer to a vague question.

comment Multiselect value into a table
I'm a little unclear about how you get from step two to step three. Where does the information come from, and what does the information in step two have to do with the table at the bottom?

comment Start form disabled and require “edit” button to enable it?
@LeslieM I try to avoid making pages look different depending on how the user got there. It all goes to predictability. If you must, I would prefer just segregating users and having different user groups get different versions.

How often is the form referenced versus how often is it edited?

comment Pop ups soliciting user comments on websites, good or bad?
@KitP These type of comments are most useful for finding bottlenecks or UX failures. And for that, it did help. I'm afraid we were too early-stage to be able to measure whether it affected other site metrics.

comment Session is about to expire
Miller Agreed, but I still think the correct compromise is to show nothing until the last 30 seconds or so before timeout

comment Session is about to expire
I'm not sure I'm a big fan of this idea, as a ticking clock will cause some degree of anxiety for users that may not have otherwise been affected by it at all.

comment Session is about to expire
Maybe I misunderstood, but I read the question again and it still sounds like he's asking the question I answered. Also, the bank website case falls into the "as long as your security needs will allow" caveat.

comment Email address as username--how to reduce incidence of bad entry
Disagree pretty strongly with the "copy paste not allowed". Nothing is more infuriating to me than when my bank website started disallowing copy and paste in the password field. I use a password manager, so instead of copy paste I had to manually enter the whole 20 character random string. A step too far, I think.

Choosing this as the correct answer because we decided to go with the nonstick wand linked in solution three.
