My scenario:
I landed on, filled in the subscription form with my:

  • Email
  • Password
  • Surname
  • Name
  • Phone number

and I got my instance:Scoala De Eficienta screen

My problem:

  1. this page has no title! Now I have a funny Untitled Page button in my taskbar. I can easily lose focus on my activity - just switch to another tab for a second and the former tab has no personality whatsoever.
  2. Great, I have a new account, let's log in... Username?!? But I never got the chance to chose one in the first place! Oh, wait... do they mean my email?
  3. ...not to mention that the rest of the site is in Romanian ans all of the sudden there is a field which requires my input but who has a label in English. Where is the consistency?

My conclusion: Why make your user think instead of making him be more efficient?
