I do Technical Support for two businesses; a small ISP and a large University. On the side I run a Minecraft server, fiddle in various Linux distros, and program (mostly Ruby).

Why do you ask for Address and Mailing Address? In general, you should ask for one, and have a 'My mailing address is different' button that they would select before they had to fill it in separately.

comment How to enter separate amounts then give feedback if the total meets a given amount?
None of the answers deals with a text-only interface. They all are graphical interfaces (primarily mouse based, or with illustrations to exemplify the relative amounts). I do not think this question significantly overlaps.

comment Is a website sidebar a user blind spot?
You can't get empirical data on sidebar blindness without doing your own testing. The data will be about someone else's sidebar, and the design makes all the difference; your design is different, and you'll need to do testing on your site to see whether the layout is inducing users to miss the content.

comment How to ensure a user knows a box is clickable/hoverable
"blinking" has a very specific meaning. I would edit your question to use the word animated if you intend for a different effect. I personally cannot think of an animation that affords clicking however. Attracts attention... but not encouraging the user to point at the button.

comment How to sell people on the benefits of user research?
Businesses value money and proof, so buy that report (bonus: get the company to buy it) and use the specific examples of ROI it has to show the benefits of investment in UX. This is a site on UX... not on debate strategies or marketing. We can point you to the information you need to be convincing, but the actual convincing is still up to you.

comment Is the label orientation on this product a message from the manufacturer?
Unfortunately, the answer to whether this is deliberate or not isn't answerable without knowing if the orientation matters. A few google searches didn't find me an answer to that.

I believe a plain blinking animation would actually drive attention away from the control, due to advertising blindness. useit.com/alertbox/banner-blindness.html

Well, that's his entire question @BartGijssens. How to make it look hoverable.
