comment What are the most common mistakas people do when wireframing?
Allright. I'm trying to improve the delivery of wireframes in general and I'm hoping that the answer (or answers) I receive here could lead to a wireframe checklist that contains the most common (not everything) misses. I will use this checklist for the current and future projects that I'm working with and for me that list would be highly practical.

comment What are the most common mistakas people do when wireframing?
If you were in my position – how would you rephrase this question so it will follow the rules? I don't want go into an argument about the rules of this site but there are quite a few questions on this forum that could have several different correct answers and I feel that this is one of these questions. This very strict way of defining how a Q&A forum should behave will eventually kill it because people will hesitate to post stuff.

comment Should PDFs open in a new tab?
Another benefit with this approach is that if the pdf is heavy modern browsers such as Chrome is build around the sandbox principle. Each tab behaves essentially like a separate browser. So if the pdf is heavy and crash it shouldn't affect the viewing of site it came from.

comment Where should I place a “live chat” link on my page?
For what it's worth – I've been using a e-commerce website and when I start using the search bar a small chat window appear at the bottom of the page and a "live" customer support guy asks if I want any help. It works actually pretty good.

comment Are hover states necessary?
I would also say that adding visual hover states on buttons gives the user positive feedback for his action or a sense of an mental award.

Yes, I'm thinking about processes rather than individual methods. I edited the question.

Basically yes. As long as the labels are clear it's ok to mix and match.

comment Is user centered design only about hygiene factors?
@FrankL I tried to interpret Bennys statement about "user experience has nothing to do with the business plan" and making sure "new ideas and innovation works the way users expect" Therefore an agency need to document those ideas that the client have come up with and be sure that the user understand and likes them without adding new features.

comment Is user centered design only about hygiene factors?
I like your answer. I think the thing is how much a ux agency should own the tactics in order to solve the problem with attracting users to re-visit more often. That way UX isn't "only" about making the clients idea work. We should be a major part of creating ideas. This is what's being done in for example advertising. The client wouldn't approach an agency telling them about this great idea that only needs a good image and a nice headline. The client would explain what business problem that advertising should help him with.

comment Is user centered design only about hygiene factors?
I have a background in advertising. When the client has asked for our help with for example increasing brand loyalty we could have approached the problem with creating a online service that complement his products. An agency that focus on user centered design would ask the client what he thinks should be done and built something that meet those requirements (and being user friendly). Therefore an agency like that wouldn't come up with any new ideas and it would've to accept the clients level of expertise. The client should also know what he would expect to get in return.

Sounds legit. I have a discussion with a client and I want to show him some hard facts.

comment How to document user interviews
Oh, thanks for your answer. My question was more about user interviews in order to understand for examples the scenarios behind using a website than regular usability tests.
