Can anyone point me to research about hiding interface elements?

A project that I am involved in has raised an interesting debate about
reducing clutter in an interface.

Specifically, one side believes that it is ok to completely hide some
interface elements and only reveal them on rollover. I don't mean
disable or dim them in a normal state and then make them obviously
available on a rollover state, I mean make them magically appear out
of nowhere when the user mouses over a specific area.

Job advertising in the main discussion forum

Hi all,

I have seen a lot of jobs advertised in the discussion forum, no doubt as people want to avoid the charge. Is this seen as acceptable by members and moderators? I've had to stop advertising with the introduction of the fee as recruiter as the ROI is not there for us, but it's a little unfair for those who are paying or not paying and refraining to post to see others posting here instead.

Thoughts?

Cheers,

Sean Pook

animation patterns for things moving

I'm looking for good examples of an item moving from one place to another and how to make that clear to the user. The specific example is a selected line within a grid; the user will click an "accept" button on that line, and then the item will leave the grid of items to be reviewed and appear in a grid of approved items. Has anyone seen a nice animation that could help make it clear what is happening?

reason behind the decision, and not its impending acquisition by Adobe
Systems--which current sells a competing product called Illustrator.

UCD, UX and Usability Courses in London (3 for 2)

(Apologies if you receive more than one of these.)

Thanks to everyone who completed our courses survey questionnaire. Oliver Pink at SAP was the lucky winner of the Amazon voucher.

Based on the feedback from the survey, we've set up a regular programme of UCD, UX, usability and related soft skills courses in London. We may extend this to other locations if demand dictates, but we are always willing to run courses in-house or in specific locations if requested.
