comment why is microsoft word so hard to use?
there's probably no point in discussing whether opinions qualify as models :). I just think that if you're describing something that has a well-established professional term for it (or very close to one), the term should at least be mentioned.

It's called a mental model (the user's opinion in your words) and a conceptual model (the actual way, or, practically, the developer's opinion).

@ALoR I went with my initial instincts, which matched your suggestions. But the most useful answer to me was the one that made me critique my design the most.

@Gary I apologize if it sounded offensive, I didn't mean to.

comment Long scrolling form or 3 compact pages?
Because users shouldn't be bothered with this.. Setting up the form they're going to fill? The whole point is to let them go through the form as quickly and accurately as possible, and asking them "would you like this form to be presented as one page or as three pages" seems completely pointless and harmful to me. Usually they aren't even aware that it matters. It's like asking them what typeface they prefer, or whether labels should be left- or right-aligned. The user just thinks "wtf? why should I care about that?". At least, that's what I think.

comment Long scrolling form or 3 compact pages?
Please don't :). Of all the decisions we dump on the user because we can't make up our minds this would be one of the most useless IMHO. I mean, come on, "How would you like this form served"? Why not let them rearrange the fields while we're at it? I hate the reference to Don't Make Me Think which seems to come up in every other question recently, but this one is just begging for it.

comment Automatic UI without explicit “perform action” controls
I agree on everything except the last phrase. Try to come up with an improvement in MS Office that would be so effective that it saves 10 minutes a day (which is a lot) for 50K workers, at the same time being so decidedly clear that it doesn't confuse the other 50K workers into spending an extra 20 minutes a day on it.

comment Automatic UI without explicit “perform action” controls
You can't become a millionaire by saving a penny every day. This shaving off of milliseconds has no impact on the UX or on productivity. It's like counting clicks, it should be done only when you repeat the same small steps dozens of times in a row, not when you turn on your computer. Also, when I bring my computer out of sleep, I just hit the keyboard blindly with my fingers - if these strokes meant something, I'd have to delete these letters in the best case, or it may cause serious damage in the worst. Why would I consciously remember the exact state the pc was in when it went to sleep?
