Asking twice for email address in a form

Hi,

Me and my collegues have a discussion about how to minimize the problem that
people are (apparently) not able to type in their own email address
correctly. In the application we developed for a customer this turns out to
be quite an issue.

One of the possible remedies could be to ask people to type in their email
address twice, just as it is often done with passwords.

However, we wonder how effective this will actually be. This trick will not
help if people 'copy-paste' their email adress.

Call for Your Participation – Session: “Practicing what we Preach”

As researchers and practitioners we help companies and organizations to design easy-to-use, usable, useful, and pleasurable websites. Sometimes, we seem to be "the shoemaker's children." We sometimes lack the time to put as much effort in our own websites as we advise others to do.

Label left or right align

Basic stuff I know but...

Putting political persuasion aside, does anyone have an opinion on aligning
form field labels left or right to the form field.

I generally prefer to right align so that they remain in close proximity to
the device they are describing. Left aligning (which does have it's pro's in
defining a bounding area) can cause issues with marrying the label to the
device unless using a background colour to suggest the relationship.

Kind regards

KN

Next & previous button order

As discussed by LukeW in Web Form Design, it's best to have the primary
action of a form be the first button that the user sees. For left-to-right
languages this means having the primary action on the left and any secondary
actions on the right (see A in this illustration
http://www.flickr.com/photos/rosenfeldmedia/2366430953/ ).

Searching for UX principles for designing an Arabic language website

Hi,
I'm sat here in Doha [Qatar] in the middle of a week of user-testing an English/Arabic travel website. One concern for our design approach is to not just "flip the text RTL" for the Arabic translation. We'd really like to actually do something meaningful for the Arabic version [yes, its early in the project and our hopes flourish].

Primarily I'm trying to find UX principles for designing an Arabic language website. From both Western and Arabic-based UX practitioners. Articles, thoughts and examples on designing Arabic language websites.

Setting up a UX department at an agency from scratch

I've been given the chance to set up a UX department from scratch at an existing digital agency.

The agency has about 70 really good people (designers, coders, the works) many of whom are interested in UX design. And at the moment we do a bit of usability testing and the odd bit of research. But my mission is to really put the user at the center of everything we do.

Obviously I've got a lot of ideas for how I want to approach it, but basically I'm looking for advice from anyone who's done this before.

Interaction Design Career Path

Hi all.... I can't remember whether there was a conversation about career
paths in our realm, so I thought I would start one. Currently I am a senior
IxDer and starting to plot out my career path. Would love to hear from
those who were in my shoes before that made the transition to the next step.
I'm curious as to not only your personal view on the career path, but the
employers' view on career paths in this realm too.
TIA,
David
