Just a quick note on web forms. Everyone likes short forms (i.e. 5 or less fields). In fact, if you’re designing forms, you should almost always aim to breakdown yours into smaller and more digestable chunks of fields rather than have 20 fields vomited onto a single page.
But, sometimes it’s unavoidable. If you’re editing your profile on one of your kajillion social networks, for example, it’s acceptable to have a lot of fields on a single page. Nonetheless, you still run into longformitis from time to time (fatigue from filling out long forms). One technique I’ve seen that combats this is to have multiple save buttons throughout the page, evenly dispersed between sections of the form. This is the web form equivalent to having checkpoints in Super Mario, and it’ll allow users to save their changes without having to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page.Картини
