comment Preventing users from closing browser tab. Bad idea?
@AndroidHustle I assume that was in relation to "articles with user data" and not the rest of the list. Would be weird to ask for "Your opinions" and then "not opinions".

@Kevin No, he asked for "opinions, help, sources, links to articles with user data"

comment How should we prepare users for a site overhaul?
@georgiosd "I would advise keeping the designs separate", so in other words, if I interpret it correctly, there's no need to keep the feel and even look of the existing site in the new version.

I'd also change the label on the button from OK to <verb>

comment When should auto-correction occur?
Agreed! Silent auto-corrections, no thanks. Clear auto-suggestions with quick "correct" action, yes please.

comment When should auto-correction occur?
I can't say anything backed by data on that issue, but in my personal opinion I tend to prefer suggested-correction rather than auto-correction since auto-correction in many cases gets things wrong and then you have to fix it. Or you miss the auto-incorrection completely and end up having typed something else than what you thought.

comment When client and server side validations occur, doesn't it make for a better UX to only do server validations?
Remember you can use the server side validation through ajax calls as well. Meaning you'd be able to use the exact same rules in both places. Yes there's a short delay compared to a fully client side validation, but not much.

comment Do people really want to look at multiple windows at once?
I wouldn't necessarily use the term multi-tasking for this either. As a programmer I'm very often using multiple windows at the same time, but I'm working on a single task. Reason for the multiple windows is because this single task requires parallel usage of multiple tools at the same time. And if I have to do full screen switches between them I quickly lose my train of thought. By having them next to each other it's easier to have them "all in my head at once" so to speak.

comment Should we use a sound/jingle when users arrive on our site or open our app?
@PeterOlson Oh I've been annoyed by those, but depends a bit on how smooth and long they are, and if they can be skipped by pressing anything. Love one of those short Ubisoft jingles for example, but hate plenty of others.

@eskimo Me too. And then I go straight to Sounds and turn off everything, including the startup jingle.

comment Why do sites split 'password' and 'username' retrieval into two separate operations?
Must say I disagree with point #1. Adding a second step doesn't increase security when the email is still the only key you need. For #2 I believe we shouldn't design our UX based on our backend services. Solutions should be easy to use for end-users, not developers ;) As for #3, it's a bit of a difference case you describe. "Email" OR "Client ID AND Username" ask for two separate kinds credential. In my case I was asked for "Email" to get username and then "Email AND Username" to reset password. Or did you mean that the password was only reset when you provided "Client ID and Username"?
