the user is blamed by default...

Just ran across one of my pet peeves. Putting the user at blame when
they are not. I was trying to log on to manage some of our benefits.
I use macs... we both do. Not a windows machine here. I used
Safari... then tried Firefox (both up to date).

How to help a new employee to get started

I am looking for insight and best practices to how to help a new designer
get started with the team, company and the product. I haven't been in a
situation where I was responsible for this so I am slightly at a loss.

How do you approach getting a new designer familiar with everything. What is
a good way to spend the first day? What is a good day to spend the first
week? Is there anything you ask them to do specifically to benefit from
their fresh status?

IxDA DC Local Site


I just opened up the IxDA DC local chapter website. Anyone can join, but
profiles still require approval so we can make sure marketers and spammers
don't get through.


*From the site: *Why another social networking site for IxDA folks?

We really have only a few focused goals:
1. Keep track of local and national events of interest to the IxD and IA
communities, but with emphasis on DC.
2. Serve as meeting place for local (DC, VA, MD) UX professionals for
networking, socializing and community building.

principles of content placement hierarchy?


Sorry if this is not the right way to start a new thread. I'm new to this
site, and couldn't find a way to start a new topic. I know the summary
sounds somewhat cryptic, but I'm not sure how else to put this. I know each
website has its own requirements, but I'm wondering if anyone out there has
any "industry standards" (ie Jakob Nielsen, etc.) for "best practice"
principles of layout in terms of where to place content on a page according
to how important it is to the user. For example, I have a client who has 2
"functions" he wants on his homepage...

Ungraceful degradation of HTML emails and conversion rates.

Hi everyone,

I'm currently doing a bit of desk research on HTML email, and I've been
really unimpressed with how many sites use templates that degrade very
ungracefully when images are turned off. I'm wondering if anyone has any
stats on the proportion of users who have images turned off by default, or
any stats on the proportion of users who click "display images below" (etc)
to reveal them.

What I'm really interested in is the impact on conversion rates.
