Content copied from blog edit

I left a message on the unregistered user's talk page questioning the permission to paste the entire article from the external link into Wikipedia. Spalding 16:22, 1 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In spite of a few minor changes made since the article's inception, it is pulled straight off of someone else's blog. At this point, I don;t know if the blogger is also the IP user who made this article or not, but we might want to ask him. The blos is at Demystifying Usability, the blogger's email is (allegedly) frank at would someone less shy please ask this guy if he's alright with our using his blog text? Thank you!
It's a terrible article: Progressive Disclosure is about hiding the details until the user needs them: the marketing and "teasers" issues that the author spends most time exploring are about enticing the user to explore for further details. Completely different goal. Daniel Barlow 13:38, 6 November 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I suggest removing all content from the blog. It is not a reliable source. --Ronz 03:39, 6 November 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

disclosure triangles edit

The folding editor article mentions "disclosure triangles". They work about the same as the little "+" and "-" icons used in the tree view of many file managers. Is there a better name for those little icons? -- (talk) 02:53, 21 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I would leave it as-is. The term "disclosure triangle" is in common usage in interface design. For example, the Apple Human Interface Guidelines chapter on Controls documents the use of disclosure triangles (among other progressive disclosure widgets used in Mac OS X).

Plagiarism edit

As mentioned above, the bulk of this article was copied bodily from [1]. That is not only a copyvio and plagiarism, but also the result is not up to our standards. There are incomplete references like "Carroll and Rosson (1997)" -- and I couldn't find a Carroll and Rosson article that addresses progressive disclosure. It mentions "consultancy research (including our own)" -- who is "we"? It is written as a how-to, not an encyclopedia article. It addresses the user: "you reveal only ...". It is incoherent (especially the "effective use on the web" section). I have removed the plagiarized material. --Macrakis (talk) 21:38, 12 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
