stu.pid.us password usability is.su.es
Hmm, I need to log in again to del.icio.us after clearing out my passwords. I wonder why my regular passwords don't work... oh well, time to start the forgotten password process.
Cool, got the email and now I'm on the site -- this should be simple:
I enter a weak password -- this isn't too important an account after all. Submit.
What's this? It's too short? Well why didn't you tell me on the first screen? Mumble, grumble... I type a longer password. Submit.
Aaaaaaaaargh!!! You fool!
- Why does a simple social bookmarking service need such strong passwords?
- If you do need them, give people the criteria on the first screen!
This is how the form should look:
I love you, del.icio.us -- please fix this!
