comment How to enhance user profile information (add a user nickname) after the fact?
Also, I tend to use an email address in this format <web@example.com> when signing up to websites (where "example.com" is my domain).. and some website's do initially address me like so: "Hi web!"

comment Should we restrict signup for a service to Facebook accounts only?
I preferred it when I didn't have to click "Show more login options ..." to provide my OpenID URL, but maybe I'm part of a minority on that one. To aid discussion, here is a collection of OpenID/OAuth screenshots.

comment Why do people clear the screen multiple times when using a calculator?
+1. I even find myself pressing the shortcut keys for both of those buttons on the (older) Windows calculator: <kbd>Del</kbd> + <kbd>Esc</kbd>

+1 purely for mentioning Google Analytics. That is the place to check to be sure about your customers' resolutions.

comment Is there a recommended location for a submit button in relation to a cancel on the web?
There should be no cancel button. More people will click it accidentally than on purpose (eg. by pressing <Tab> then <Enter> when on the last input). :)
