Would love to hear your thoughts on what is the best time to ask someone to log in/sign up. Do you think it is before they perform the action (for which signing up is required), after they perform the action or as part of the action itself?
We have tried all three on our site and haven't noticed a real difference in our metrics.
I'm in search of some statistics and advice for a meeting I have on
Monday. My situation is that we've designed and are nearing
completion of developing an online membership activation form. It has
a reasonably complex set of business rules which must by met and an
offline activation form will also be made available, although one of
the project objectives is to streamline the activation process. In
this, the 11th hour, we've received a new requirement to include a
new set of 'terms and conditions' the user must agree to in order
to complete the process.
I want to introduce my new eBook for your interest
Creative Thinking for Interactive Media Design (e-book)
Oguzhan Ozcan, A. Evren Yantac, 2009
Although it was founded only ten years ago, Interactive Media Design
has been one of the leading field where the most creative design ideas

I've been involved in a few debates about this question lately and
would like to write an article summarising the different positions.
It would be great if you could spend a few minutes emailing me or
posting your personal position on the following query:
"As a matter of best practice, should forms on the web be designed to
look like their paper equivalents? Why/why not?"
I recognise that this is a fairly "open" question but there are lots
of different ways that one could come at this issue and I'm keen to
hear about them all!
I just finished this book, and thought I would share my book review with the
Web Form Design, Filling in the Blanks
By Luke Wroblewski
Publisher: Rosenfeld Media
The scene is all too familiar. You're presenting wireframes of the
registration process for a new web application when the discussion veers
down a dark alley. The sky has turned the color of black ink, and you can
smell sulfur in the air as one team member after another debates the
alignment of form labels.
