Need Help on Election Results Website & Mobile Service



I would appreciate any help by way of links to any online resource or
documents that describe models of best practices for designing a
service for delivering national election results.

I am involved in a project that is developing the website and an
SMS-based service for delivering the national and local election
results, starting on the day of elections all the way to the final
count, for the upcoming May elections in the Philippines.

The results will be for all the candidates for th 14 national
positions and 17,662 local positions.

Usability of Usability

Usability is an important aspect to be looked at for making any system achieve its ROI and to give its users an ‘experience’ that will help foster a better culture in the organization. As the ultimate target of any system is to establish change management and to promote organizational innovation via modifying the behaviour or culture of the people in the organization, it becomes imperative that aspects of usability are engrained into the goals and processes of the organization.

Persuading the Product Team that there is too much copy on the site


If anyone out there can help me or has come across a similiar situation..

I need a persuasive argument to back up my claim that there is too much copy on each page of the website (member system) we are putting together. The copywriter is literally explaining all the things that can be done on each page, which, if the navigation and buttons are clear enough, should be self-explanatory! The PD team are treating each page like a brochure, when in fact there is some pretty complex functionality per screen.

Standards for power indication, LEDs?

Anyone know of a standard for power indications on equipment?

Specifically, I'm looking for any international standards that discuss
LED color, state, etc. for when a device is:

1) Connected to mains and ON

2) Connected to mains and OFF

3) Connected to mains and POWER SAVING

If there are standard iconography for these things, I'd like to know
about the references as well...

Animotion Sickness?

(no, that isn't a typo)

Has anyone encountered motion sickness on a website or webapp that animates
the interaction too much?

I am in the middle of designing a new navigational paradigm for enterprise
webapps that would heavily use the scriptaculous animation framework. The
idea is that each click of diving deeper into the application and content,
each layer deeper would animate onto the screen to show the relationship of

While watching a coworker demonstrate a prototype he developed, I started
getting concerned that too much animation might be a bad thing.

Good Examples of Physicality in Web Visual, Design

This question is a little confusing. What is exactly meant by
"physicality?" It sounds like your client is saying "I want my web app
to feel like a desktop app." ITunes, although it has a metallic-looking
"finish", doesn't really do anything special in terms of a "physical"
