comment Pros and Cons of a grid/dot grid based Futuristic UIs
I agree, as I pointed out most of these UIs are intentionally flashy and unpractical. But I liked the concept of the grid as the scaffolding for UI, to know where UI could expand too and act as a cue to better understanding the law's behind the UI. I'm just trying to find out why it shouldn't be used, since so few people use this.

comment Should a toggle button show its current state or the state to which it will change?
@n.1 Typically you wouldn't mouse over and stop if there was a change of state, you would go in and click with one intention and all of a sudden the button flips on you hoping you will pause long enough to recognize the change. Mostly this results in accidental clicking more often than not.

Makes logical sense, but I was looking for a more technical scientific study on this, relating to how human beings read. But I guess your right if you use basic logic.

comment How should you represent a short Unordered list
ya, everything is incomplete when you start, when you focus then unfocus it checks if completed correctly or not

comment Starting Instant Search as you type
"you should accept sub-optimal practices" why? What's wrong with defying the status quo when it's arguably not a deadly feature and may even provide that extra "delight" we try to infuse our UX with? I don't really assume PC Gamers to be stupid users, they usually are power users and can understand simple navigation features such as WASD and I don't think I've ever seen WASD used in any application or web app, has it been tested to show a bad UX or are people just afraid to try new stuff like this?

Also I should mention, their is a prompt on the bottom left hand side which displays keyboard icons along with a one word description as to what it does, so for the library their would be an an icon showing arrow keys and an icon showing the WASD keys and beside them is a simple label that says "Move" that way its a bit clearer for those people that want to use the WASD key thats what it does. Another solution would be having WASD an optional feature that could be off by default, maybe that's a better solution?

the lack of intuitiveness and the awkwardness involved if you think of having to search for a game starting with say Z or X for left ALT or M and L for left alt completely eradicates the efficiency gained by simple type and search and I might as well just have users click on the search box at this point.
