- Icons should never be much larger than the text or labels they sit next
to, images and text need to work together in harmony to create instruction
and action (adjust microphone size next to Record Pronunciation)
-We aren't quite using Black as a color for 'call to action' you might want
to try a blue:
-Avoid indentation with license selection.
-Interfaces must meet the squint test (when you squint at them you should
be able to see the call to action and general information hierarchy. Color
acts as a guide and helps users break interfaces up. In this case, Upload
action should carry color.
-Simplify your Success Message !! (Use color and iconography) and avoid
bullets. Success means done, not keep on reading. This approach of having
lots of copy doesn't work anymore with users (yes, even users on Wikipedia)
We are competing for attention spans, please be aware of this. Deliver the
information but work hard to stay concise.
-All modals: The title bar carries an X and it carries a upload action. You
might want to remove the 'x' and go with a simple cancel which is a light
link on the left of the upload.
-You dont need an 'X' or a finish for the last modal, it should ideally
auto close within a few seconds after doing its job unless there is a tech

Thank you for helping!
On-list is good! Or in the talk page of his project.
This is good practice in general, and we are insisting on having all GSoC
/ OPW technical discussions in our community channels.
