Generally, a few such websites include a link of Family Filter: ON or OFF. By default the filter is ON so the adult content is not visible to anyone who visits the site. If the user clicks on the ON link a system shows confirmation message to user to confirm that he/she is 18+, if the user confirms he is, then the Family Filter is turned OFF allowing the ...

I'll answer your sub-questions below and I'll give examples related to your question Examples: Do you ever experience that you've get curious on a Facebook video (for example) that has many likes/shares/views and then clicked on it to figure it out why? Imagine a Youtube video without a views count or a like and dislike result I'm really sure that a user ...

I agree with you: I doubt counters were ever useful in any way to users. What purpose did they serve? Did they bring more readers somehow? What I'd do in your situation is compare the analytics between now and before you removed the counters. Granted, it sounds like you've made multiple changes, so more visitors can't be directly linked to the removal of ...

The above answers were not useful. Sometime we dont have the keyboard handy. (Have people not heard of wireless keyboards I wonder :) This is what did the trick for me.

Simple answer: yes. You can use a Simple Menu. https://www.google.com/design/spec/components/menus.html#menus-behavior There are no specific guidelines around this exact case but you can get a good idea of how the Simple Menu can and cannot be used in the above link.

The benefit of a 'card' style UI is for important information to be surfaced where it is required to allow the user to perform a task or achieve some goal. While there's really nothing to say that you can't put a dropdown (just think about how many Windows Metro or Apple standards/guidelines don't get followed), perhaps you can consider other ways to surface ...

You should use type-ahead when You know which option you are going to select. For example, you are likely to know product (in an e-commerce site) that you are searching. Number of items are so huge that a drop-down may end up having a scroll bar. You also want to show categorization such as example below Otherwise show drop-down, if Number of items ...

As a general practice searchable Dropdowns are used when there are a lot of Dropdown options or the Options are Categorized. It makes it easier to search and select the Option required. Whereas simple dropdowns can be used when the options are very few like 3-5. Another thing to consider is the Context of the user, typeahead in dropdown menus are good if ...

As a starting point for you I can help answer the following part of your question: I am curious as to whether there have been studies of elevator dispatch algorithms combined with human behaviour to optimize such systems According to Cortés, Larrañeta and Onieva (of Seville University), researching elevator systems is only a fairly recent phenomenon: ...

I think the second and third question has already been answered quite well, so I just want to focus a little bit more on the first one. There are actually a number of strategies that have already been suggested, but I'll summarize and see if it helps you identify the one(s) that is most applicable. Tracking reputation: it can be similar to the points ...

If fast response time is paramount, you won't have time for a triage step to filter out bad reports. Accountability/auditability is your only other choice to limit false alarms. Patrons who cry "wolf" will eventually need consequences, but maybe they can be identified other ways (cameras, door access records, computer logon records, etc.) The good news ...

I would consider these things with your solution: Do you think your users will navigate to a separate page to view top content? Are there other examples from different pages of that being an effective place for this type of content? What language will you use for your "posts" and "categories." What kind of language invites people to click and learn more? ...

This is an extremely large question, but I'll do my best. How can I discourage false reports? It sounds like you're talking about this in terms of a university environment. I assume people already have assigned email addresses from this organization, so it seems like you could use their existing account to enable a one-time registration of their device ...

Accountability is a good way of ensuring proper use - If a user knows that a report will come with their name and ID and that records of reports are kept for analysis, they will be less likely to use the tool for fun. Another way to deal with the problem of false or unreasonable reports is to build some sort of triage into the tool - make it a tool to solve ...

There are also hotels with room 41 or 42. The reason is usually because there might be 10 or more rooms per floor. Thus 2 digits are needed for the room number (from 01 to nn where nn is the number of rooms per floor) and one (or more) for the floor. Room 13 would be at the bottom floor. Room 1120 is the 20th room of the 11th floor.


1

Why not? From a natural language perspective, it's easier to say "four oh one" than "four dash one" and "four one" sounds like two separate numbers. Since most buildings will have less than 100 rooms to a floor, you don't need the added flexibility. and once you get past single digits, you'll be using more space: 421 vs 4-21. And dashes just aren't that ...

There's too many elements and components in your question to be able to answer fully, so I'll just address the one about learning UX in your spare time. Short answer: Talk to people, listen to people, observe people whenever you get a chance, and find out what it is that makes them 'tick' (both in a good and bad way). Long answer: I think transitioning ...

If you want a great into to UX then this course by David Travis is worth investigating. https://www.udemy.com/ultimate-guide-to-ux/learn/v4/overview He also runs an active Facebook page for students. I don't know about the coursera one.

In some elevator lobbies, I've noticed where 1 lift will only service odd number floor and one will only handle the even numbers for instance. i believe this would optimize time taken and efficiency in the elevators. Another way to approach this is by numbers. have some kind of tracking set-up to record the frequency of which floors were serviced per ...

One way to encourage people to follow your social media is to have contents that fit your user groups. Content strategy is always heart of social media. Most of people would follow BuzzFeed on Facebook because they have great amazing feeds. They know who their audiences are. You might try to have a free content or contest or webinars on your Facebook and ...

Short answer: My experience has been that non-profits tend to make more 'noise' about UX (after all, they are doing it for the 'poor' and the 'suffering'), but it seems that corporates do more about it because they have more resources at their disposal compared to non-profits in general. That is to say, the ratio of 'noise' to action seems to be higher in ...

This is not clear in Material, kind of a grey zone. While you won't find any text edition example on a dialog, you will find other kind of forms in dialogs, specially on the Confirmation Dialogs sub-section. You'll notice there are all kind of form controls in dialogs, exception made of... text fields. However, read this (bold font added to show you the ...

After asking this, receiving information about this concept, and brainstorming, I'd like to mention a solution that I'm strongly considering for this problem: A hybrid of the "nag-screen". Rather than throw a pop-up to annoy the user, or a timer to delay the user, I think the best approach is, as a gateway to the service (in my case, playing a video in ...


5

In software, what you are describing is generally know as a 'nag screen' - a popup or interstitial screen that the user has to dismiss in order to use the content. The only warning I would add is that you will be walking a fine line between encouraging your users to purchase the full content and annoying them to the point where they abandon the product. ...

I'm pretty sure that has to do with the side of the road you drive on. You didn't specify which Asian countries, but as a quick test I looked at Chinese car interiors (wheel on left) and Japanese ones (wheel on right), and that conforms to right/left side of the road. Red = Right on road, Blue = Left on road. Via wikipedia. The question then becomes: 'why ...

This is a historical issue that goes back to horse-drawn coaches. In the UK, coaches would pass on the left so that the coachman (driver) could fend off any attack from the passing coach with their stronger right arm. (Why do some countries drive on the left and others on the right?) In the US (and other countries) The idea was that if coaches passed on ...

History and origin In the late 1700s, however, teamsters in France and the United States began hauling farm products in big wagons pulled by several pairs of horses. These wagons had no driver’s seat; instead the driver sat on the left rear horse, so he could keep his right arm free to lash the team. Since he was sitting on the left, he ...

It is simply that countries where you drive on the right side of the road the driver will be positioned on left side of the car. Countries where you drive on the left side of the road the driver will be on the right. In effect this means that in countries with right-hand traffic, the driver and the vehicle controls would normally be located on the ...

There are certainly differences in non-profit and for-profit organizations, and their management, that may change the ultimate product, but your job shouldn't be terribly different. The organization will have a goal that needs to be met in relationship to their public. This is not necessarily the same, although likely also not all that different, than what ...

One difference is that you may actually be able to focus on UX when often traditional businesses can not. A lot of times UX is put on the back burner for companies because profit is more important. Interface decisions will be prioritized by conversion rate before usability is taken into account. Leads, specials, and other various marketing centric ...

Not at the core of it. UX is about discovering what your users are trying to accomplish and providing tools that help them to do that. The people who visit your particular site/app have unique needs, but that's the case with every organization.

You could add a countdown timer - i've seen it on some websites, or a captcha, or do something else annoying like reduce video quality. However, these just discourage people from using your app (as do ads), and your number one problem will be getting people to use it, not making it uncomfortable enough for them to pay for an upgrade. Your question is ...

This pattern is definitely not good. It increases user's cognitive load which might end up users saying: 'I don't know how to select multiple messages', and leaving your website; assuming you don't have that feature at all. Because the number of curious/tech savvy users on web is a lot less compared to the ones who just visit web to complete their tasks and ...

As said by anthonyryan1, it is required for American Express. So either you ask for/require this information only for American Express (which would mean you would either have to ask the user for the card type or start by letting them input the card number and then asking for the rest, or you disable the field if you see it's not required once a Non-Amex card ...

To start with I recommend you use colour combinations with high levels of contrast. http://webaim.org/resources/contrastchecker/ You can also play with the alpha opacity (CSS3) to distinguish between hierarchy with the more opaque element being the most prominent. Primary: background-color: rgba(203, 244, 203, 1); Secondary: background-color: rgba(203, ...

Yes, it is really important to notify user that all the changes n hard work they have done will be lost if they move to another webpage. This will definitely get really irritating and frustrating for the user to make all the changes over again. Ideally, you can have an auto save feature that will automatically save all the changes.


0

Users don't like to lose (and have to re-do) work. This should be obvious, but a workflow that allows moving between screens without prompting to save progress will result in frustrated and irritated users. We generally design to avoid these emotions, so alerts that warn of the risk of lost work have become commonplace.

While you're correct that Visa and MasterCard do not validate this information, that's not true of all credit card providers. American Express actually does validate the "Name" field if you collect it as a merchant and by not collecting it you're more likely to have legitimate payments declined with this card.

You can use 7 bars for a week because that makes sense (7 days in a week). You cannot use 7 bars to represent a month because that does not make any sense (you recognised that). As a suggestion, look at this a different way. Think about changing the granularity as you move further way from the current period, e.g. Weekly View - 7 days in a week (7 bars) ...

NO. HTTPS increase confidence of user’s and ensure them about a secure connection. It does not mean that your website has sensitive content. An SSL from trusted CA will provide the highest level of encryption. CA verifies domain ownership and organization detail before issuing the certificate. So, HTTPS connection offers security as well as confidence.

This question comes up quite often. The bottom line is if your are designing for someone, you must understand who that someone is, why they will be using this software, and what are their goals.

From my experience, my advice is that if you want to remain in the aeronautics domain, to learn about the domain e.g. attend some fast-track courses, spend sometime with the experts etc. This will make you even more effective and invaluable to your team.

Yes! The buttons have to be close to each other and vertically center aligned. And move the settings icon to header. Here's a quick edit - EDIT: Also the 'What would you like to do' text should behave as a title in the page, so, keep it above the buttons in a little large font.

Do follow the conventions. I have heard this from many service providers voice answering machines: To go back to main manu, press 0. # is used after dailing the number. Please enter you pass-code and press # * is used for many messaging service like the one you mentioned in your question *123.
