Ω (Alt 234) will push an item to the bottom in windows file folders; I like it because it's intuitive.

Based on code page 437, here is a list of characters that come after z. Note they are listed in sort order. Omega is probably the most appropriate for this use case, because it is the last letter of the Greek alphabet. α alpha U+03B1 Alt 224 Γ gamma U+0393 Alt 226 δ delta U+03B4 Alt 235 ε epsilon U+03B5 Alt 238 Θ theta ...

I suggest using option A. Since we read (and view pages) from left to right this will allow users to explore more. In option B going back seems like a weird experience, I expect people to browse through less blocks this way.

Generally, time-based lists, as you have described in your sketches, would normally flow in the standard reading direction so that the earliest item is read first and the latest, last. This also works in a vertical sense (top = earliest, bottom = latest). This can be seen in all sorts of applications such as calendars or schedules where both the vertical and ...

Just my thoughts looking at your wireframe, I think it depends whether you want to influence the answer of your user. Looking at it, it shows that you wanted them to answer YES (because it stands out from the two other options). However, if you want them to have unbiased answer towards how they feel/see, maybe putting the three options in similar color might ...

It depends on your target audience. Notice that Amazon US has "View Cart" but Amazon UK has "Your Basket" because UK users think of a shopping basket and US users think of a shopping cart (we call it a trolley not a cart). Also note that "view cart" and "checkout" are two different actions. I may want to review my purchases, change quantities, and delete ...

Could the list be organised hierarchically instead of alphabetically? Then you could use an accordion or a collapsible tree. e.g. MATERIALS Metal Copper Gold Iron Lead Mercury Silver Tin Wood Ash Beech Cedar Maple Oak Pine If using the alphabetic approach, I think tabs would be better, as it is analogous to a card index.

Yes tags can be hierarchical and there is actually a lot of (not yet widely recognised) potential in it. Although some people (probably like the question asker) have been curious and/or after hierarchical tagging for years, the reason it is not present on the CMS market now is more because of technical obstacles rather than not seeing point in it. With pure ...

I would definitely keep the rank order, as you will probably never have thousands of roles and users need to clearly understand. Ideally I would put a kind of gauge beside the role name to indicate that the order is linked to a rank in terms of access rights.

You can use the swipe left or right option to have reorder list option and if you already have the swipe reserved for some other options then you can use it in same side as I showed in the attached image. If the user wants to reorder the list up by one or two steps then they can easily move it by taping the arrow up or down otherwise they can enter the value ...
