Description (last modified by lemon-head)

(this can be started when other problems on the signup page are fixed!)

Currently the SignupPage on can be quite frustrating.


  • How to handle invalid user input?


  • Where possible, detect invalid input when typing, and display a live error indication next to the input textfield.
  • If the user sends a form with invalid input, then present the form again, but
    • with all the input fields unmodified
    • one message on top
    • a colored indication and message next to each input field where information is missing.
  • When the user sends a form with no invalid input, show a *confirm page*. With one button to confirm, another to go back and correct. The important fields are highlighted on the confirm page.
  • Get rid of unpleasant javascript alerts, whereever possible!
