@BenBrocka You are still referring hierarchical links to breadcrumbs! It is a common misconception, and the giveaway really is in the name.

comment Breadcrumbs and selected page
I think you are confusing breadcrumb trail with hierarchical links. A breadcrumb trail will track exactly where you have been, so the example shown by @rlemon is valid. What you are describing in your answer is hierarchical links, which yes, will follow the directory structure. Think of Hansel and Gretel when you think of breadcrumbs, they need to retrace their steps, so it is in fact a history!

comment Piloting end-to-end UX process for IT staff on intranet
The only issue I can see arising from such a pilot test is that IT staff have a higher tolerance for sub-par UX, which means they'll complain only about overly convoluted elements. Can you back this up with evidence that this is true?

comment Piloting end-to-end UX process for IT staff on intranet
Previously worded question: Will completing an end-to-end UX process for IT staff on the proposed intranet as an initial pilot cause any detriment to future user-centred design on the system?

@DA01 as I understand it, Microsoft chose the sizes which conform to effective DPI that humans can see on a screen.

Excellent answer, this is really carefully considered and very thought provoking.

comment Is there a scaling behavior guide for designing sites & system interfaces?
Shai, I don’t believe you will ever be able to get general guidelines that will be universal to all projects. These are the types of parameters that need to be set on a project-by-project basis depending on the requirements. Also, this is more of a front-end development question rather than related to UX.

@DA01 I disagree, the information is for Metro, which is used on XBOX Live, Windows 7 Mobile and Windows 8, but the principles discussed work for the more general mobile web.
