Cultural Differences in Discussion Board Usage

I was talking to someone recently who had heard that there are cultural
differences in the amount of usage of discussion boards. In particular,
she heard that discussion boards are not as frequently used in Europe as
they are in the US, in general.

I would be interested in hearing about your experiences with image
collaging in UX. What's worked, and what hasn't?

Sort order for listing languages in setup / settings

Two projects in a row where I need a list of languages available on
the device, either for setup or settings. Possible options:

Alphabetically, by native language name.
But where do non-phoenician alphabet languages go in that list? Sub
in their English language (so Chinese is written in Chinese, but
placed in the list as if it was "Chinese")?

By likelihood of use. Seems somewhat arbitrary, and the least
apparent to the user.

Is it just me, or are the RSS feeds whacked?

Good design examples of conversion.

I am conducting research on how to best represent a conversion of one
content item to another. Does anyone know of some good design
examples or websites that feature this type of switch? Could be
anything, currency, weight, metric, etc.

Thank you.

Websites that remember you

I've hunted through Pattern Tap and Konigi and am struggling to find
interface examples when websites 'remember' you.

We're looking at developing a tiered remembrance:

1. Unknown - the site knows nothing about you, you see the default
2. Remembered - you've been to the site before, but you're not registered or
logged-in, we just know what you've looked at.
3. Known - you're logged-in and we know lots about you and your history with

Can anyone think of examples that demonstrate tier 2?

Product "training" and orientation: anything surprising/interesting?

Looking for some inspiration about how to orient people to a UI in a
novel way. Of course, no training should be required, but there's some
legal reasons why we need to do it for a project. Anyone seen any cool
vids/demos/tutorial modes out there lately I could check out?
