Personas: how many is too many?

There is this project I'm working on that is for pet owners, breeders
and vets. They have identified 15 consumer types between the three
main segments I've mentioned. The client is requesting we create
personas for all 15. In my experience I've rarely have had to create
more than 4 on any given project. For this project I believe I can get
away with 3.

Does anyone have any thoughts as too what is too many or too few
personas? Have you come across a similar client request? And how did
you deal with it?

Thanks,

Why would you do email verification for people who sign up?

We're having a debate about this.

You could do email verification so that there's something of an audit trail back to a person, but since anyone can set up a new hotmail or gmail at the drop of a hat, does that count for much?

You can do it so that you know it's a working email address, for data quality, although you could just delete non-verified accounts after a period of time.

Persona Workshops

Hi all,

I was wondering if someone would have any ideas for running an
'interesting and entertaining' workshop where the client reps will
be involved in the process of creating personas.

Thanks a lot for any thoughts or ideas on that.

Cheers

Telecom Self Service (Web & Mobile)

Hi Everyone.

I am doing an impossible research. Currently I am trying to find out how all the different telecom self-service portals work. As it's almost impossible for me to be a customer for all mobile carrier (around the world), I am asking the community to help.

This thread can act as a resrouce gathering for pattern study in telecom self-service. (if we manage to gather enough screenshots) I think this would be benefitial to everyone as this is not just a portal, not just a website, but more of a service design on the web.

An alternative phrase to "Buy Now"?

Hi -

I am currently working on a website for a client in the
'spiritual/healing/meditation" space and she has a playful, whimsical
yet vibrant, interactive website with "guided journeys" that unfold
insight to one's personal development through a game-like interface
where one choses tokens and is able to enter various rooms,
environments, etc.

The site has about 30k+ registered users, more than half of whom are
active each month, with 1/3 of them returning daily and an equal
amount spending 20+ minutes on the site with each visit. So, plenty
of active users and deep users.

Software/Hardware for UX Designer

Hello, 

We're starting to build the case/need for a UX designer internally; however, I need to provide a list of anticipated software/hardware requirements. Might anyone have any insight as to what items might be basic for a new UX designer? Mac or PC? 

Thanks!

UX to Developer ratio

What is the ratio of UX individuals to developers in your organizations? I realize that the timeline of a given project, size of the project etc has an effect on this number. I just want to get a general idea of the trend of this ratio today. Further, what do you think it should be? If you could mention the size of your company, that would give me a  better idea too.
