I wrote an application system and tried to make it as simple as possible. The idea is to get enough for us to run credit and some of the basics out of the way. Things like detailed assets and odd job history need to be discussed on the interview anyway.

I have a comments tab that is accessable at any stage. The funny part is a minor amount of our customers will leave comments on the comments page that there is no place to leave comments. The comments page can take 2000 characters, so they can get rather verbose.

I don't get it, but it explains how people can get into financial and other trouble and claim they had no idea.

Rule #1: Never, ever underestimate the ability of people to be stupid.

Who is going to answer the phones if you are pretending to create new systems?

They're probably not seeing the comments tab as part of the system and think it is something to use to comment about the system.

except the comments 'tab' like the other navigation, also happens in sequence.

Account setup, customer info, customer address, customer employment, etc...last screen is comments, then final submit.

People are morons in general. Whenever I have to sit next to someone try to navigate the interface of any type of software I generally want to strangle them for being so slow and dimwitted.

i said CHARACTERS. We used to have 300 characters but people said they didn't have enough space.

See, that just proves your point.

By the way, I think reading comments for 5-10 minutes on any video streaming website is a good indicator of how our species is ROYALLY fucked.
