comment When you have to fill up the rest of the page…
As per Steve Crug, remove more from the display. Always, if you can, remove rather than add. So decide which of the three entries you can do without ( or rahter, do in a different way )

comment How long should a temporary notification appear?
If you can, is there a way of allowing the user to recall the message? This makes a difference, because ifthey can, the notification that there is a message is all they NEED to note, whereas if they cannot, they need to note at least the essence of the message.

comment Credit Card input format
@Marjam - another factor that needs to be accounted for. But I am puzzled - why do people keep their card number somewhere they can copy and paste it? That seems strange to me ( but is interesting to add to my understanding ).

comment Credit Card input format
That would do, as long as it would also display it in groups. Accepting in any format is cool. But the feedback to the user of whatever grouping the number is displayed on the card.

The alternative is to have a formatted version displayed below, with the ability to click on a set of 4 and have these highlighted. There are ways around the issues, and I think something different would make it easier, if carefully done - as everything, if done badly, it is bad whatever.

It needs to autotab, so you can type it in one go and it will split.

But it is not unknown - I have done it - to verify the card type and provide appropriate formatting. In particular, to check for start/end dates, 3/4 digit cvc.

comment Is this domain name idea suitable for companies, business men & sellers social network?
As a starter, FirmMeet, for example may be a possibility, or something similar to that. It does have the correct connortations or something solid and something business-related. You need to get the "meeting" word correct too. And avoid any dangerous innuendoes.

comment Good solutions for boolean filter with sub conditions
Yes definately. I cannot look at it and get an idea of what is going on ( Tufte was hot on this ). And - more critically - I cannot be certain that what I think it says is what it does say. I would run a mile from this, speaking as a user, because it is not clear.
