If you have a lot of elements represented by cards, and you are including multiple actions in those cards then perhaps another design pattern like list or table should be used instead because cards are not suitable for organising and manipulation large amount of information (that's what lists and tables are for). I think a good way to deal with the need ...

Don't waste space or create confusion When you duplicate information, you make the user look at it twice. This creates some disorientation. You can treat the top categories like tabs then expose their sub-categories at the top portion of your left nav. This has the benefit of encouraging subcategory discovery and providing a sense of place within the ...

The best example I've seen for this kind of demonstration comes from Bret Victor: http://worrydream.com/#!/LearnableProgramming http://worrydream.com/LadderOfAbstraction/ Both pages are rather long, but as you read through the articles there are many cool examples that have inline videos and interactive graphics that you can scrub through to see the cause ...

I agree with what everyone has said, dismissing the URL extension is a bad idea. Several brands use the extension as part of their branding. A good example is about.me while coexisting with about.com.

This has a lot of implications, going from technical to usability, from marketing to legal issues, from internet neutrality to international affairs and everythign in between. Your question has a basic answer: NO WAY. Obviously, from a technical point of view, this is easy. Now, how do you plan to cope with people using it? what if they want to copy it? what ...

I think that a better answer is to allow a name of a business to be typed in and it invisibly leads to the proper site, hiding the URL entirely. As soon as you have many choices for something, it ceases to be meaningful and becomes confusing instead (a large number of top-level domains - eg: more than 5). This is also true if one choice dominates, as with ...

This would seem like a good idea but it could also be misleading or confusing. If I told you to visit my website at mycoolwebsite, then lets say you waited a month, by the time you tried visiting my site, another website came out at mycoolwebsite.club. There are 2 problems here: The first one is that it would take a long time to become standardized, due to ...

No. The .com is what signifies something as being a URL. More specifically, these days ".anything" is the signifier. It provides context. context is important. It's often necessary. Do top-level domains really serve a purpose now? Yes, of course. the TLD is a necessary part of the URI. monkey.com and monkey.org can be two entirely different web ...

In these cases, I tend to 2 two things: 1) Use a list approach, something similar to Material lists (when not Material lists directly) 2) Limit content length However, since it seems this might not be an option for you, I'd go with a Masonry grid, like teh image below: This will allow you to play with both vertical and horizontal lengths without ...

A common solution for things like multilingual customs or banking forms is either to stack translations vertically, or to write them horizontally but separated with a slash "/" : Not exactly pretty, but functional and makes good use of rather restricted space. Depending on the required languages and their use within the target audience, you could also ...

In my experience of multi-language applications, they bring their own complications. As you don't know the exact size of the prompt that is brought forth from the localisation item, you will need to design your form to be flexible. If you have a set of defined languages and the resources have already been translated you can get a feel for common terms (form ...

In your situation, i would design this very simple solution by Showing Status at all times A control to easily switch to default and customize settings with single click any time No need of repeating and showing advanced/custom settings toggle bars inside user creation/main task area Use one line to show status if user is using customized settings ...
