Re: [IxDA] Username vs. Screen Name

Are you asking about the concept or the labeling?

For the concept, there are valuable "identity" consideratinos from social design patterns at http://habitatchronicles.com/2008/10/the-tripartite-identity-pattern/.

For the labeling, I understand "username" as authentication, and "screenname" as display, which despite bound to the same person, must be kept separate for many reasons you can read on that link above.

Good luck!

Gino

Closed Caption on Mobile Video?

A client we are working with is coming up with a project with a lot of content presented in video, and they want to make sure that a mobile audience can see the videos as well.  We're investigating the best way to present mobile to both a desktop and mobile audience but one of the concerns was how to offer an text-based alternative for those who need it.

RE: [IxDA] Username vs. Screen Name

Hi Kbnova, If you want personally my opinion then I like ----- "screen name" for chat programs & "username" for websites. Because its simple to understand by anyone.

Preserving Filter Selections

Hello everyone,

I do not have the ability to do any usability testing for this, but I wanted to know if there was a best practice for this scenario:

The user lands and on media asset viewer (default view w/another view option) with options to filter the media asset viewer by category and media type. After making a few filter selections, the user then flips the media asset viewer to another view - would most users expect that their filter selections from the previous view to be preserved?

Your opinions are very welcomed.

Thanks

Username vs. Screen Name

I'm working on redesigning a website that uses the term "screen name" rather than "username".  Personally, I am more used to seeing and using "username".  The last time I regularly used "screen name" was back in the '90s with AOL.  However, that is just my personal opinion.  I'm curious how others feel about it - which term do you tend to use?  Are "username" and "screen name" exactly equivalent or would you use them differently - e.g. "screen name" for chat programs but "username" for websites?
