And disabled buttons are low contrast and not keyboard navigable, so many users with disabilities will struggle to get the subliminal message that something somewhere else entirely is broken.

I’m saying don’t disable the form submit button. That button is an interaction opportunity. I know there are special cases where you can kinda get away with it, but as a rule, it’s best to not disable the submit button.

If you disable the submit button, many people wont notice it as a hint that they omitted something above. Some people will just sit there thinking WTF IS WRONG WITH MY TOUCHSCREEN... NOT AGAIN!

Another lil form design tip: Don’t disable the submit button before a form is filled out. This button allows a moment of dialog between the user and the interface. The user says “Hey, I think I’m done!”, which means the UI can reply “Sorry, you forgot to do this..."

To add to this - don’t use date pickers for date of birth. People know it off by heart and it’s easier to just type.

We are all joined by a unifying thread of UX. It’s like Cloud Atlas!

Interesting thing about me and . We met at a conference in 2015. Got talking. Turns out we’re the same age and grew up in the same village (population: 600 people). And we’ve worked in the same industry since the early ‘00s. Never met before that moment. Super weird.

A while ago, I remember having a UX/content design book on photography. Might have been published by five simple steps. Anyone know the one I mean? I’m trying to track it down.

One of the problems is that many people don’t understand the underlying maths (myself included, it’s complex) and treat it like a magical black box.

p-Hacking and False Discovery in A/B Testing [pdf] It’s common for researchers to leave AB tests running until the minute they reach significance. This gives bogus findings.

The new Spider-Man “Far From Home” movie features him on holiday in Europe. And the U.K. is part of it. No Brexit!
