This is a technical option, but if you have the means it's worth investigating: Define a similarity metric between answers. You can use simple metrics, like cosine similarity (ie. basic word frequencies), or go more complex. You can enrich the metric by using synonym dictionaries, tf-idf, and edit distance techniques. Apply a clustering algorithm ...

Word clouds are completely useless. Two patterns here (making a bunch of assumptions about your needs) might be: Perform semantic analysis on the answers to strip away filler words (and possibly group together phrases), and then display words by frequency in a simple bar chart. Bar charts are one of the easiest-to-understand visualizations of categorical ...

If there's a lot of complex interactions where the admin needs to handle but the user doesn't, then what bzav suggested of having two separate views: admin and user is preferable. If there isn't or the devs can't support two separate sections, you can try putting in permission based controls directly on the page. I've worked on a previous project that ...

In your particular case (where you know that the language suggested by Accept-Language is wrong), I would do the following: Use GeoIP data to set the defaults; When the GeoIP data doesn't match the Accept-Language, offer the user to preset locale to the value in Accept-Language (if it does match: great!). Regarding offering the user to set alternative ...

Users will want to have full control of the content they post. This will be the case whether the context is a social networking site, a discussion forum, themed communities etc. If you block the possibility for a user to remove content they have added to the site you will produce agitation in that user. And if you keep content posted/accessible that a user ...

Jakob Nielson describes the 3 time limits which he calls the 'Response-Time Limits': There are 3 main time limits (which are determined by human perceptual abilities) to keep in mind when optimizing web and application performance It is an article written in 1993, but three years ago he published a new research report on website response times ...

I recall that 2 sec is when some start dropping out nowadays. Of course it depends on the site and the situation. Also it depends on the timing of separate parts of the site. For example, layout, text, and image placeholders might load earlier while images load later. Other stuff can happen in the background. Perceived performance is more important than ...

I think that being able to edit their recipes is important because the authors might want to add alternatives (gluten free etc.) or correct their texts (typos etc.). This is especially important if you wish to have high quality entries.

Between 'Dollar' and 'Coins' I would suggest Coins since it is a more generic symbol. Dollar is just a type of money(currency) whereas coin represents a form of money. Moreover dollars isn't used everywhere but coins are. If you can use other symbols, then something like an accounting book perhaps would be a better symbol since accounting is not money, but ...

There is no useful symbol for "accounting". There is a very useful word for "accounting". The $ symbol is well understood as a unit of currency of some people but by no means an worldwide symbol of accounting, or even currency. To be brutally honest none of the in your illustrations have any useful meaning - that is they have more potential to be confusing ...

Here's my current solution: I chose to use pushpin icons instead of checkboxes. I use @Mart's suggestion to repeat the selected items at the top. I also like the suggestion to move the selected items to the top right away, but have not implemented this. The buttons with selection actions are visible only when at least one item is selected. I have set the ...

What about displaying the next page of results below the first page? Show the first 10 results, then have a "show next 10" button at the bottom. It loads the next "page" of results below the existing set. The context remains the same so you can maintain the selected rows. I've never seen this pattern before but I can imagine it working well.

I would repeat the selected items with their checked box on the top of the table when the user navigates to another page. This has the benefit of keeping them visible and allow the user to uncheck one of them any time. The drawback is when the user wants to select a lot of items, there isn't much more room for the paginated items. How to handle this ...

An analogy first: A pig looks different than a horse. They have different uses and characteristics, and seeing them we instantly set our minds to their specific context. A mule and a donkey look similar, but they have very different abilities and uses. If you could make a mule and a donkey from scratch, wouldn't you make them look more different than they ...

The answer is quite simple. All you have to do is make your Active column a computed column in your database where it's value is based on whether or not your Leaving Date IS NULL. In T-SQL, the formula would look like this: CASE WHEN LeavingDate IS NULL THEN 0 ELSE 1 END Then in your GUI, simply make the Active Status a label.

Basically it means that you have 3 different employee statuses: active [toggleable] temporarily inactive [toggleable] permanently inactive Unless I am not getting your situation correctly, the solutions are rather simple and more than one: Add toggling functionality (show toggle button) only for first two user statuses. List current employees and past ...

In matters of UX, a webpage IS allowed to force a certain orientation. The problem is, browsers are not allowed to access a phone's native functions like the camera and the accelerometer. It is expected webapps will have the same access as native apps in the near future, meaning phones will give developers APIs to access the camera and the accelerometer, we ...

Have the "add new" option within each level of the hierarchy at the place in which it would occur. This is simpler and removes some ambiguity about where the new element will be created. download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups

The tree model is more visual and easier to use than the "folder hierarchy model" (but certainly harder to code) You can grab inspiration in the genealogy website like myheritage but also on some hierarchy builder like Writemaps. Here is a quick mockup, I hope it will help.

A good example of editing/commenting is also Google Docs as well as HackPad. More in general, I think what works well is something that clearly identify the wrong part (i.e. red color or strike through line), the solution (i.e. uppercase or bold), and having the ability to have additional information about the specific issue––maybe a little "i" icon that on ...

As Dan pointed out, consulting a lawyer is the best thing you can do as they would understand those details better and can highlight the nitty gritties you need to be aware of that. That said, this link should be a good starting point for you as there is a website component mentioned as per the highlights. To quote the article If a large organization ...

The CTRL+F search in current versions of browsers perform search which treats the entered phrase as case insensitive and finds only exact matches, treating the text on the site as a one big object. Also it makes user "go to results" not "results go to user". I've implemented search on my page because: words user entered could appear in a single record in ...

This is how I would try and do it.. I would also color code the numbers so that if you have a good mark it's green, but if you aren't doing so well then it would be orange like this... You could just do something in your code like if (PERCENTAGE <= 30) { makeColorOrange(); } if (PERCENTAGE > 30 || PERCENTAGE < 50) { makeColorYellow(); } else ...

I usually work in multi-language systems. Is your system multi-language as well? That would not have worked in Turkish as well as English. It is better to edit and view from the same type of structure. I would also guess that the "fill in the blanks" approach would work better.
