comment Variable Password Requirements Help
@Renaud Many are hacked due to insufficient length. Those database hacks are (mostly) stealing encrypted passwords. Having shorter passwords means that those encrypted passwords are easier to crack. See lockdown.co.uk/?pg=combi for some out-of-date numbers.

comment Variable Password Requirements Help
@JonW The problem with password strength indicators is that most people misunderstand what a strong password is. They tend to add more "odd" characters rather than increase the length - when length is often the "best" option.

In addition to A/B testing - some good old fashioned usability testing can quickly show whether it will be a problem.

Ah - good point. Didn't read it that way. The "harder to open accidentally" still applies ;-)

comment Psychological pricing vs. being fair?
If you've not got the numbers then you never going to know what's going to work best. So best to focus the energy spent on figuring out exactly the right copy for the sign up page to the parts of the service that are getting you more people ;-)
