I think this should be accepted: Kolik měříš Matěji?, Matěji, kolik měříš?, Kolik měříte Matěji?, Matěji, kolik měříte?

the word order - "Matěji, jste jak vysoký?" is incorrect - why is that? One of the moderators included a link to a more extensive resource on word order in one of the discussion threads but I forgot to write it down - is there a way to access an archive of the (very informative) discussion threads? Excellent program, many thanks to the moderators!

You are violating the second position rule for "jste".

I answered Matěji, jak vysoký jste? , between that answer and jak jste vysoký, which sounds more natural?

"Jak jste vysoký?" is the most natural default.
