True. The wording absolutely stunk. However, I (and I know for certain, several other women) overlooked it and used the restroom anyway!. Of course, this was after yelling loudly before going in making sure it was empty. Probably would have been more willing to find that other restroom if they had stated it a tad bit nicer. What a great “usability” example!

LOL, ShanyeO, at your “taking it back” response … well played!  

By the way, I noticed the next day that it wasn’t just the third floor (Developer track) that featured the ladies room closure/messaging, but also the first floor (Business track), leaving only the second  floor (IT Pro track and Exhibit Hall) unobstructed.  I’m not entirely sure what to make of that, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

Agree!! It will be more considerable if used with AgilePoint for SharePoint. It has really simplified the biz processes and executions. Nice post, have got it and would like to read on a regular basis. Thanks
