comment Is it ok to require certain users to have JavaScript enabled?
@MonicaCellio I'd have to agree with this. I think most of the time the people who have this installed and are actually more user savy. These are also people that will most likely have an up to date browser installed. Javascript that is used for the UI is used to replicate things that can now be done in HTML5. So, if i had to choose to code in HTML5 or javascript, i would choose javascript right now to cater more to the non savy users.

comment Get user Birth location
@MarjanVenema You don't have to. I don't even know why you posted that comment. I don't understand why so many people on this website assume the worst is going happen when you don't understand whats going on. All i asked was input on the UI, I didn't ask for your opinion, i asked for a non-subjective answer.

comment Get user Birth location
Yea, it doesn't jump right into this question. This information is not required, but it is required to make full use of the website. This information is not even shown publicly and it's made pretty clear that, that's the case. What you are saying is basically what i am thinking. Basically, if you go to google maps and start typing a place, this is exactly what I am talking about, except for the fact the map would be shown after they selected the place.

comment Is Amazon's layout good or bad from a UX and conversion optimization POV?
I for one hate hate hate amazon's layout. I still shop there, but only if i know exactly what i want. Overall i find it very displeasing. Amazon is one of those special websites. I wouldn't follow their layout.

comment Get user Birth location
Yea town/city may be close enough, but with what I am using this data for, it may also be very far off. Like i said, it needs to be as accurate as possible. I don't need an address, but like the hospital they were born at would be fine, as long as it's close. In most situations it won't matter as much, but there will be some cases where it really does matter. That's why i was thinking of doing what you said, asking for city/town/hospital (any of these) and let google do the searching. Then plot a point on a map to make sure it's close to where they were born.

comment Is this hard to read?
I'm not colorblind, but this hurts my eyes. It's just too loud. You can have green, but not that much. Make it whiter by lightening the green and it will probably be just fine.

comment How to discover what users NEED and not what they WANT?
Nice, If i ever get a client that needs something similar, ill just say I know exactly what to do :p I'm just always curious on how people solve problems, because you never know when you will be in that situation yourself and what's better than taking advice from someone who has already been there?

comment How to tell the user his login credentials are incorrect?
I personally like the combo. Makes me fell warm and fuzzy. This means people just can't put in an email and see if it exists. This happened on facebook and people got pissed about it.

comment Why is it impossible to deselect HTML “radio” inputs?
jsfiddle.net/f4vXj/2 from stackoverflow.com/questions/2117538/… I don't recommend this though, I've never heard of anyone try to "uncheck" a radio button. But if that's what your client wants, then give it to them. They will be the only ones that knows how it works though.

comment Form - time input
after some consideration, i think i like this answer. While a lot of the other posts said the same thing here, it wasn't quite as complete. I think i will create a time input like the windows input as you have above and what was mentioned elsewhere and get the locale, defaulting to AM/PM, since this is a web app(javascript could be blocked), only way to get that info is from javascript and maybe html5

@user9109 i should have mentioned this is a web form. So getting locale may not be 100% accurate.

comment Should date validation allow “091011”?
@TomasCokis curious, how do you say a date? As mentioned before, in the US, we say something like May fifteenth, 2012, how would you say that?

I'll look into those, but as i stated in other comments, the Jungian types are used in an algorithm to come up with a personality type for a person. Jungian is only a small portion though. I need to keep the form as small as possible though. Would there be a way to give a description and have the user select what they are? I've never heard of the big five, so i really don't know.

i have actually tried this, but for some users it was hard to understand what to do. While i do care about the overall result, i do want to know what the user thinks where they find themselves at. This can later to be proved useful in an algorithm that is used.

@GaryFranceschini I can't really give you the setting because it's proprietary, but it's basically a calculation about the person's personality. Jungian portion is only a small part of it. Like you said, i didn't come up with the calculation, I am only implementing it.

comment nice way to display a text message for two dates (range)
I like that, never really thought about it, but it does make it very easy to read just like that.
