comment Datepicker UX showing Quantitative Data
Be wary of the designs below that try to communicate "fullness". In reality, the number of tasks we can usually do in one day varies widely depending on the type of task, the person, unscheduled issues, etc. What if I have five tiny tasks to do? IMO a heat map is actually the better metaphor.

comment Toggle Buttons vs Tabs
Take this page for example. Upvoting and "Add comment" are buttons that don't change much of the view. High-level navigation ("questions", "tags", "users", "badges" at the top of the page) are styled as links. Unfortunately, there aren't any tabs :)

comment Toggle Buttons vs Tabs
I mostly agree! Though if the whole view is changing, I think link or navigation-menu-item styled are best. I like buttons and pills for "actions" or "switches" that might not change the view at all.

@Itumac I think we're comparing tabs and buttons (not pills). Here's the bootstrap equivalent (scroll down to "radio") getbootstrap.com/javascript/#buttons

comment UX for a system that converts between units of weight and volume
Thanks for answering! My main concern with this solution is that it puts a large burden on our users. How many people know off the top of their head how many gallons 900 lbs of fertilizer pellets fill? Many users (but not all, obviously) will only ever need to record fertilizer in weight.
