comment How to design form that requires users to validate email or phone number?
If I understand what you want from this question: Next to the submit button on the index page, put a link 'I have a validation code'. The validation page can be generic for email/phone, but can detect the validation type because the format of email and phone validation codes can be made to be different.

Also of interest: Can I reformat personal names obtained from a single form field?.

comment Why do so many organizations collect first and last name on the sign up page?
Because the alternative would be likely to be asking for the full name and what do you actually want to be called - ref: Merging firstname/last name into one field. Some notable examples of those that only ask for full name are Amazon, Twitter, Quora, Vimeo, SourceForge, and um... nope that's all I know of. As a sidenote, I've found that something of the order of 50% of 'popular' websites don't ask for your name at all.

comment Is there a minimum viable number of personas you could use?
It depends... on the data that is backing the personas. However I think two extreme personas and the assumption that 'catering for both would meet in some middle ground that covers the corpus' might be a an invalid theory for many cases! I'd suggest not having the 'extreme' personas sitting so close to the end of a long data tail, and at least a third which uses the researched evidence to represent the corpus and is identified as the 'primary' persona.

comment The coding monkey dilemma
@PariyaKashfi The FoolProof link above recognizes that this is the case and that it's no easy task but does suggest that the 'UX Champions' can try to act as 'agents of change' in trying to improve the situation where it matters.

comment When should a text input be auto selected?
Well said. Only by an unbiased introspective look at the reasoning and the clear benefits can a decision be made, and whilst we can help provide the framework for understanding this, it's bound to hinge on generalisations unless we have all the pertinent facts. As a result, only the OP can answer his own question for their own scenario.
