comment How to not make my website have a “1990's” look
The problem is you don't have any animated gifs or marquee text. Also there are these JavaScripts which you can make something follow the mouse cursor. You should do a Webmonkey tutorial on these, go to Lycos in Netscape Navigator and search for them.

comment Do people really want to look at multiple windows at once?
I'd say it completely depends on the scenario. It's not a simple case of "It's good" or "It's bad"

comment Why do checkout processes place payment info last?
I'd feel uneasy if someone asked me for payment details before I saw what I was getting, like real life.

comment Do user experience practitioners ever have to worry about code?
I've seen some very poor HTML output from developers, using the completely wrong tags making it markup soup and very inaccessible. I am forever trying to move away from writing HTML / CSS / JS jQuery but I don't think it's realistic at least for the near future!

comment Should I increase or decrease items in a wizard progress?
+1 - % is a possibly but in my circumstance the users needs to know what each step is. I agree 'The risk of showing only the minimal set of steps up front, then adding items, is that the user feels like the finish line is moving farther and farther away.' could be an issue, you'd have to weight up the context of the form and if it's appropriate.

These were my thoughts too. We had gone for this approach in the first place but your answers helps clarify my decision. Thanks!

comment Limiting access before email address is confirmed
Having read this again I think the OP title is misleading. Can it be changed to something like "Limiting access before email address is confirmed"

Ah my mistake, I misread the question and thought you meant delaying the email and not allowing them to continue into account.

Personal opinion - I don't see how delaying it is going to help. If they are not going to confirm right away what makes you think they will confirm 3 hours later?
