OK, how about this? Should be unerstandable by everyone, irrespective of culture.

I think icons are the best possible way to convey the information about different flushing amounts. I see too much uncertainty by relying only on button relative sizes and ease of use. It can be a simple pictogram showing the tank in the relative size of water what will be flushed upon pressing that button. download bmml source – Wireframes ...

I've seen flush buttons with: . .. I think it's fairly obvious that . is the shorter flush and .. is the longer flush. Obviously text, "Short" & "Full" are self explanatory, but from a manufacturing point of view it becomes a logistical problem and those terms may not translate well in other languages. Example image:

Make it Green I'm surprised no one has mentioned colour. The easiest solution is to change the button colour to Green. Green means "Go" in traffic lights. the type of button that's usually used as a kill switch on a factory floor If this is your reference, I know that in Factories, they have "Green" buttons that start machines. This is likely the ...

A google image search for toilet flush buttons brings up a surprising variety of designs. I didn't realise there were so many! I reckon the small and large buttons representing small and large flushes respectively are the best. And then couple this with separating the buttons apart so that the large one is not easily pressed when you try to only press the ...

The toilets my college use have a fairly intuitive design. (Focus on the water droplets label on the handle itself.) That is, pull in the direction of 1 water droplet to flush with less water, and push in the direction of 3 water droplets to flush with more water. This is me speculating, but I can also see how pulling/going up could relate to something ...

One button. (or lever.) It only flushes while pressed, so that the user decides how much is enough. You could also control the water flow by pressing the lever only a little bit. I think a single lever was common in germany a few decades ago. Then there was a short hype 15 years ago, because they are saving water. But now they disappeared completely. ...

Because litres are a unit used everywhere across the world, a non-language dependent text solution is to label the amount of water used. Typically the symbol "L" is recognised as litres in almost any scenario. Here is an example: In addition, the two labels could be used as "wave to flush" sensors, if spaced far enough apart, preventing the spread of ...

A possible alternative could be a slider: PUSH RIGHT small BIG FLUSH -------------------------------------- | |===\ o O O | | |====> o o O O O | | |===/ O O | -------------------------------------- You push it half way to the right for a little flush and all the way to the ...

Usually, and IIRC, services such as one drive, google drive, picasa... will direct you to an empty page, with a clear message stating that the folder/collection/tag/array does not contain any element. If your application offers it, you would also have a strong emphasis on the action of adding items to this collection, using the easiest method available for ...

Could you create a graphic that wraps around the area where the button connects to wall? This would suggest that the instructions/text refer to the button, as well as appearing to be one cohesive thought rather than a button and a sign as an afterthought. Could the graphic be the same height as the light switches for consistency? I realize attaching or ...

Why don't you get a sticky label and label it 'Door release' or something similar? You could use one of those machines that stamps the letters into a bit of tough sticky backed plastic and stick it either on the button or above it. There could be no confusion then, surely?

‘Liking’ something is easier for users than ‘Sharing’ it, mainly because casual Internet surfers don’t like to be burdened by the text box. But, sharing accompanied by a positive comment could potentially add more value to the webpage. Source: http://www.829llc.com/facebook-like-vs-facebook-share/ So 'liking' is a passive action, and 'sharing' is a more ...

Similar to a 'do not disturb' attachment that goes around the knob of a hotel room. You can create a version with your clear instruction of button on a material thats is suitable for the outdoors. And as another person has commented. Change the other switch labels so that it is clear they do not open any doors.

I've never seen a physical middle click on any laptop but I've seen those implementation: Press both left and right click at the same time Three-finger tap/click anywhere on the trackpad My analysis on the lack of physical middle button is that its usage is not that common and thus not worth to use precious space for it. Many, many users do not even use ...

Among those I have seen, I prefer the "small droplet" <-> "large droplet" one. If I want much water, I press the large droplet. If I want less water, I press the small droplet. (Both buttons are equally sized.)

It is always preferable to help user by preventing mistake(or unexpected or least desired outcome) rather being reactive after least desired outcome. So in the first place where you show the button "go to gallery/array of photos" rename it to something like "add photos". If you still wish to display as "go to gallery" then the yielding page should have a ...

Keeping in view one of Nielsen heuristic "Match between system and the real world". Red colour is perceived to be for ending anything in progress in real world, for example in tape recorders to stop recording stop button is used which have red dot or circle for identification. Similar, is the case with the televisions in which red colour identifies the ...

First I'd like to say that not all laptops lack a middle mouse button. I had a Lenovo Thinkpad laptop with a middle mouse button for the trackpad (picture below from web). As for how to achieve the effect, you can use AutoHotKey which enables you to write a script to assign the middle mouse button (or any other button/key) to a keyboard key, CapsLock for ...
