However, users typically care neither for the developer, nor for the business.

comment Best way to enter/display relative time in a text box
Yes, localisation is a potential issue. However, many email applications and file managers use a similar UI for searching for files and emails, and are available in many different languages. So I presume they've managed to overcome those issues somehow...

comment should I ask for a phone number even though it is not required?
If you do ask, you should also be sure you are complying with the relevant data protection regulations. Storing personal information that is not required for the service the user has signed up for may constitute a breach in some jurisdictions.

comment Why do credit card forms ask for Visa, MasterCard, etc.?
This, I think, is the most convincing UX reason. By forcing the user to select card type first, also reduces the risk of pulling the wrong card out your wallet and charging something to it by mistake.

comment Is Repeating a Word in a Navigation Panel Bad?
The swatches could, of course, have tooltips. Slightly more inconvenient for colour-blind users, but how much more so is something you'd probably want to test with some -- luckily they're not all that hard to find.

comment Preventing users from closing browser tab. Bad idea?
But would it not have been a better experience if the better plan had been suggested to you in the first place?

comment Absence of negative feedback vs. presence of positive feedback
As with a lot of questions on the UX board there's no definitively right or wrong answer, at least until customers start complaining six months later :) But I've marked the one that's closest to what we've decided to do in our latest prototype iteration.

comment Should websites require e-mail addresses?
User names really only make login easier only if a) you can remember which particular user name you chose for that particular website, and b) you're not using some kind of password manager to auto-fill the login details anyway. Most websites want or need your email address for something or other sooner or later anyway. So why bother forcing a user to enter two bits of information about themselves, one of which they'll probably have to invent and remember, when they could enter just one that they already know?
