comment Is it worth having custom 404 pages for different features of a web app?
I guess we have different definitions of "fact" then :). gmail.com/lkjhlkj, facebook.com/lkuhkl.

@JamesRyan Outdated or not, it's a fact that 404 pages exist. The question wasn't whether they should be used - I agree that it's best to avoid them whenever possible. The question was how to use them, as long as they are already being used. Also, your assumption about the uselessness of search is unwarranted in many cases, especially in the case of webapps, which is what the OP explicitly asked about. And I actually never mentioned search :).

comment Is it ever useful to show the Password Requirements on page load?
But it didn't turn out yet. Neither of us has the data, and in the absence of data displaying the rules is the safer path, because they at least get the option to read the rules. Hiding the rules makes sure that exactly 0% of users read them. The error rate will by definition be higher (unless you're operating under the assumption that noone reads them ever. I can assure you that this is not the case, because I read them sometimes :) ).

You're right in that these are both assumptions. But in times of uncertainty we should follow the rules of thumb, that's what they're for. And they recommend error prevention :).

What makes you think that it's a fringe case? Users know that passwords must meet certain criteria. We don't know how many of them read the requirements. There's a pretty wide consensus that says that error prevention is preferable to just easy recovery (e.g. Nielsen recommends it).
