    Where to put Field Requirements on Form

    Any suggestions where to put Field Requirements on my Form?

    I just added a new field, Username, and want to let Users know it must be 8-30 characters in advance.

    Here is my Form...

    After the User submits the Form, I display Data Validation Errors in red to the right of each field like this...

    I was thinking of just adding a note to the right of the Username label like this...
    Username: (Must be 8-30 characters)

    What do you think?

    P.S. For the Password Requirements, I think the "Post-It Note" look works well, but for things like the Username, it is overkill.

    That's what I would do. It's the clearest and most accessible option that I can think of.

    Looks OK to me, except I would lose the period and the capital M.
