comment How to group users into personas
Please do. But in your job portal example, we are seeing two personas? The job seeker and the administrator? You are telling me that the creation of the personas comes after the interviews but shouldn't I figure out before the interviews begins that the job portal will be targeted against job seekers and administrators? Otherwise I don't know who to interview right? So I have to start by picking out some high level target groups? And then interview them about the goals, needs, problems and thinking? If I see a one or two patterns during the interviews I know that I have one or two personas?

comment Breadcrumbs: ok to place at the top of a page?
@CharlesBoyung I was apparently a bit unclear. My point was about search engine optimization. You don't get banned from Google if you put more than 100 links on your web page. From the same article: "Does Google automatically consider a page spam if your page has over 100 links? No, not at all." But from a user experience perspective I fully agree that something could be wrong with your site architecture if need to put more than 100 links on your page.

comment Breadcrumbs: ok to place at the top of a page?
Sure, download their pdf "Google search engine optimization guide" and navigate to page ten. This is what they say "Ensure more convinience for users by using 'breadcrumb lists'. By the way, the 100 links per page rule isnt that valid today - check out this blog post by Matt Cutts about the subject mattcutts.com/blog/how-many-links-per-page

comment Visual language for fixed and fluid widths
I agree that you might not want to specify exact how wide the columns should be. That is something that the web designer should decide.

comment Usability research on sticky headers?
Personally, I really dislike the concept. I always find it irrating except on Facebook and Twitter for some reason. Maybe because it's kept to a minimum.

comment Should we include a “Back to top” button for mobile websites?
Yes, that is correct. The question is about accessibility.

comment How do left-handed people hold smartphones?
I'm left handed and I always use my left hand and my left hand thumb to navigate and write. Both in landscape mode and portrait mode. If I need to pinch (for example to zoom) I use my right hand while holding it with my left.

comment Is there a convention for identifying final vs. placeholder text in wireframes?
I think they could be. Sometimes we perform usability tests on wireframes and in those cases text is important. Also, it's a good idea to hint the amount of text we want to use.

comment What reasons are there for “go to bottom/top” links no longer being used much?
Since a Back-to-top link is very easy to implement you could just add an event in Google Analytics and check how many people do click on it. If no-one does then remove it. (provided that the link is fairly visible)

comment Should social sharing buttons be at the top or bottom of an article?
Hmm, I'm not sure what you mean. Could you rephrase your question?

comment Most intuitive settings icon
IMHO - the main problem with the hammer and the wrench is that when you need to use the icon in a smaller size (such as 8*8 or 16*16 pixels) they become pretty unrecognizeable. Therefore it's better to only use the cog wheel or the wrench.

Yes, that is a correct interpretation of "unfancy multi-level horizontal menu" :)

comment How to deal with multilevel menus
Yes mega menus is a neat way to handle it. But in this case I'm forced to use a unfancy multi level horisontal menu.

comment Can a salesperson be a good UX designer, as compared to who are not?
Well, my experience with interviewing sales staff is that they are generally good at thinking what type of basic content that should be on the web site, since they have a lot of contact with the customers.

comment How to work with visual designers who treat wireframes as literal graphic suggestions?
You're lucky to be working with designers that tread your wireframes as blue prints. The other way around is what driving me crazy. Some of the designers I have worked with are "creative" enough to come up with implementing menus and interactive elements that don't even even remotely resembles what I done. :)

- Doesn't matter if it was a technical question, we'll answer it from a UX perspective anyway. Deal with it! ;)
