Capitalization in username

We're currently having a debate around capitalization in usernames (not display names).

  2. Capitalization is allowed when signing up, but is not enforced when signing in, e.g.

Building a Portfolio

Hello,

I'm relatively new to the field of IxD/IA/UCD and was wondering what constitutes a good portfolio. Are there any examples anyone would be willing to share? 

Also, as I'm looking to build my mine and get more inxperience in the field of IxD, any information as to where I can find part-time work (as I'm currently working full-time) in the NYC area would be greatly appreciated.  I've hit up some of the usual hot spots such as eLance and Craigslist, but have not had any luck so far.

Thanks, and I look forward to your replies.

Newspaper company looking for a UX mentor

I work for the newspaper division of E.W. Scripps, and - due to an increased interest in user experience by the execs - our small UX team is tasked with defining the term as it relates to our business as well as defining a strategy for applying UX principles to existing products and new projects.

What a mouthful.

New to Interaction Design - how go about basic concepts?

Hi there, apologies if all this seems utterly trivial to most of you, but I am new to this world and need some guidance. I am  trying to get the basic concepts underlying interaction design - any ideas on sources?

I got "Interaction Design: beyond Human-Computer Interaction" by Dr. Helen Sharp, would this be a good start?

Many thanks

How many users confirm their email addresses?

Hi all,

I'm looking for stats or anecdotal evidence (yeah, I said it) regarding email verification--that is, you register and a site says your registration will be complete once you click a link they've sent you. The purpose, of course, is to confirm that the user's email address is valid.

If you work(ed) at a site that practices email verification, how many users actually clicked the link you sent? In other words, how many users did not complete registration because of the email verification step?

Re: [IxDA] Simplicity is Not Overrated, Just Misunderstood

Simplicity should be overrated, just to understand it's importance in any design or system. I believe the key is integration, therefore needs to be understood.
