best practice for security questions

Hi there

Can anyone point me in the direction of sample security questions that could
be used to verify a user's identity if they don't have an email address and
have forgotten a password? EG Mother's maiden name, first school etc etc.

I think best practice would be to let a users set the question themselves,
but in this case we need to offer a set of questions for the user to choose
from.

Thanks for the tips,
Sam

Relocating to Europe - Visas and sponsorship explained + great opportunity

For those who have read on the site - apologies, repost due to email list being down.

Hello everyone,

Happy New Year to you all.

So then, as part of my job I speak to hundreds of folks based in the EU who ask if I have roles for them in the US or Canada etc, and vice versa. My answer is invariably no, not due to a lack of opportunities, but due to the lack of the candidate having a correct work visa or the hiring firm not sponsoring said visas.

How do I start a career in IxD? (already have bachelor's, but not in design)

Hi IxDAers,

What would you recommend for someone interested in getting started with interaction design, but who already has their bachelor's?

My plan was to make a website and gradually fill it through designing my own projects (or volunteering if I can find something nearby), but first I wanted to know if there was a better way of going about this.

If it's relevant, I have degrees in Cognitive Science and Studio Art, can teach myself programming languages, and have some experience with counseling and scientific research.

Mega Drop-Down Navigation menus

Hi all,

I’m putting together some recommendations for using mega drop-down
navigation.

http://www.useit.com/alertbox/mega-dropdown-menus.html

I’m interested in the opinion of the iXDA list on whether the
top-level navigation items should lead to pathway (or landing) pages,
or whether they can simply act as non-hyperlink triggers to the
drop-down (so no hand cursor)?

Also, if there is no pathway page, how should this impact breadcrumb
trails?

For instance:

Home > Sports > Windsurfing

- Should ‘Sport

MSc User Experience Kingston University

Hi,

I have been looking into the Masters in User Experience Design in Kingston University.  I was wondering does any one have any experience of it?  Good, bad or indifferent?

http://www.kingston.ac.uk/postgraduate-course/user-experience-design-msc/

I know it has recently chaged from being an MA and MSc to just being an MSc.  My background is in design and advertising and although I would like to know all apsects of the field research etc, I would not like it to be at the expense of my strengths ie. design.

Why are personas written from the third-person perspective so pervasive?

First-person personas are more engaging, and by mimicking tone patterns, grammar usage and other linguistic characteristics that may be possessed by the persona would result in the ability to communicate more with less writing.

Best practice for for number of items in a dropdown on a web form?

Hello everyone. This is my first post on IxDA. :) I've been
developing web applications for a few years now, and usability has
always been a priority, but I have only really started obessesing
about usability in the last year or so.

A colleague and I had a discussion about the maximum number of
elements that should be used in a (select) dropdown menu on a web
form.

He thinks that fifteen is the maximum. Me? I'm not quite sure what
to think.
