comment How to maintain different, customized versions of the same software for multiple clients
@PavelShved: Maybe I didn't name them correctly. I should likely just use term branching or client branching. The main idea is to keep a master brach where features are being committed and these are then committed to client branches as required.

comment Two HTML elements with same id attribute: How bad is it really?
@JoachimSauer: When you use data attributes you can have key-value pairs which is not true when you use CSS classes. In that case they're all like boolean properties. An element either has a CSS class or not. If you'd want values with CSS classes then you'd have to somehow combine them into CSS class name and parse that afterwards. I hope you can now see benefits of using data attributes. And they're also supported directly out of the box by jQuery when you simply refer to data-something="123" attribute with $(elem).data("something").

comment How to visually document interactive user interfaces for fast consumption
@ThorbjørnRavnAndersen: That's a good idea but... Videos of what? Me explaining the whole interface? Anyway... It has to be printable.

comment I would like to improve in writing goal-oriented user stories/features
@DXM. I tried to keep some order with my questions, but you may be right that I should split this question... I'll probably do that.

@S.Lott: I've removed the General part that did make it more duplicate because it introduced other techniques to the question. Without it this question is strictly about user stories.

comment I would like to improve in writing goal-oriented user stories/features
@S.Lott: Not a duplicate. The other one talks about alternatives or supporting techniques to Product Backlog user stories, while this one strictly talks about user story improvements. It just seems as if it's a duplicate, but it's not.

comment Agile product planning alternatives to aid goal-oriented feature quality
When you say stop writing those sometimes it's not easy when you define features for your own product where you have to do planning, managing and developing. Sometimes certain stories seem viable, but may turn out to be total crap...

comment Agile product planning alternatives to aid goal-oriented feature quality
You can remove (strike through) the first suggestion because my example user story in the question has been changed some time ago.

comment Agile product planning alternatives to aid goal-oriented feature quality
My intent is not project estimation but rather filtering the good features from the bad ones. This will eliminate some requirements that don't add much to the overall goal. What I'm after is a great prioritization technique that will get me faster to First Release.

comment What is the difference between user stories and features?
Aren't those associated stories actually user story tasks? I would say they are. A user story would be: As a user I would like to comment on articles so that we as users can improve article content or express concerns. This user story would be broken down to tasks that you described...

How do you suggest we should hierarchically arrange user stories? By roles? By benefits? by anything else?

comment What language and topics should be covered when teaching non-CS college students how to program?
+1 for the practical problem of their study and implement a simple solution using programming. They would easier see value (benefit) in this.

Why? document.write can easily just output text. They don't need to take any inputs. They can do all that in code directly. This is a crash course for total beginners. Since they'd most likely do something like add(x, y) and then fibonacci() or similar. Output a number and a comma would suffice for simple results. OP can always tell them to answer those questions at the end. Not everybody will be that interested or knowing those things by some degree. I suppose some will be total beginners not knowing anything about it. Answering those HTML+CSS questions would confuse them big time.

Not until they come to eventing. Otherwise they can easily output results using document.write(). Thanks for the observation. I also edited my answer to include this information.

comment What is a reasonable and secure password requirement for user registration?
This is very clever. Use a spaced evey day phrase... Clever. Although I'll stick with my system of a common strong password with added number and letter depending on the service I'm logging in. Only I know how to form those and it's always the same but the resulting password is very likely different (not always different though but I don't care much about those rare duplicates).

@Qwerky: What? You live in a window-less or non-transparent windows house? I've never seen one before. Can you make a photo of it and send us a link? :) Seriously...
