/- impacts of 'address verification systems' on online forms

>From a user point of view, yes, complexity will always increase
abandonment rates, however one of your stakeholders is the business
and if it keeps the data "clean" and data maintenance costs down
then that benefit has to come into the pro and con equation.

Validation and verification CAN help a user fix simple typos and
assure the User that the address has been entered correctly.

URLs without 'www' - having them work anyway


Just noticed on one of our major web properties (1 of our 2 most important
in fact) the site gives an IIS "under construction" notice instead of
resolving to the site proper at the www space. I sent this in as a problem,
that the site should still work correctly (and should not be hard with a
.Net site, I don't think). While not common, people do tend to key urls in
sometimes that way (especially geeks).

Standard message display time

hello, all,

is there a standard formula for determining length of time a message
overlay should display, e.g. 1 sec/word?

so that if you have a message overlay that automatically shows up on
screen load:
"Click on the green play button to start reading"
how long should you wait to fade it out?
