Marking Required vs. Optional form fields

When creating a form, do you feel that it is more advantageous to mark
the required fields, even if they are in the majority? I ask because
I'm working on some guidelines for a client, and there is some debate
about which way to go with this. After reading Luke Wroblewski's book,
"Web Form Design: Filling In the Blanks", I have to agree with his
sentiment about indicating the MINORITY of the form elements:

FROM 'Web Form Design': "Many times there actually are
good reasons for indicating what is required when updating or creating a
record online.

Adobe Fireworks for wire framing

Recently I have been getting increasingly frustrated by the
limitations of Omnigraffle and the complexity and bugs of using
Visio, not to mention having to switching between operating systems
to use Visio when i am a mac user.

So I am very interested in the increase in talk of people using
Fireworks for wire framing, what i read about it makes perfect sense
with the ability to share layers across specific pages, making
symbols to reuse across the document, so a footer for example can be
a symbol, you edit the symbol and the footers across the sites pages
will update, not to mention master pag

How to prototype selection-dependent inputs

Hi folks,

When you're designing a form, being able to change the inputs based on a user action is really powerful. It lets you hide complexity from the user and makes your form easier to complete.

My latest post on Boxes and Arrows shows you how to prototype this kind of behavior in HTML (with a little help from JavaScript). You should give it a look:

email address as username

Hi
I'm reviewing a web based blogging service. Currently on sign up, the
user has to enter a username, a display name and an email address. I
suggest that that username be replaced by the user's email address.
(from any email, say yahoo, gmail, hotmail, rediffmail, etc)
How would this impact the security of the product?

Best practices for designing Terms and Conditions/Customer Agreement Interactions

I'm looking for any research or information on best practices for designing interactions where users have to accept some legal terms and conditions.  For instance - what are the advantages/disadvantages of presenting terms to the side of the main form vs. below or in a pop-up?  Or - if the terms are going to be in a scrolling window, are there any guidelines about how big that window should be?  How many lines should show at once relative to length of the whole agreement?

Hi all,

For one of my project i have to design interface for handheld devices. Does
anyone can point me to a good BOOK and any other literature which could help
me in knowing the guidelines or more importantly patterns of application
design for mobile devices.

Also do any one know any particular studies where people qunatify these
guidelines and standards and generated user interfaces for different mobile
devices automatically?

thanks a lot!
