comment How to push items to the top or bottom of the list in alphabetically sorted lists?
@GrahamHerrli I'm guessing because omega (Ω) is the last letter of the Greek alphabet--as in "the alpha and the omega"--so it makes sense for it to be last in the list.

comment How to handle reordering lists in iOS?
#1 is good if it's ok if lots of people don't find the feature (ie more of a power user thing), #2 seems weird but I could see it if the list was made of categories that you'd only ever sort once, #3 is a decent option if you need most users to actually sort IMO

comment How to handle reordering lists in iOS?
This model isn't intuitive to me since the act swiping side-to-side doesn't match the end result of moving the item up or down. Also, if I'm reading it right, passatgt mentioned in his post that each row already has a swipe action.

comment How to convince a client that the website doesn’t need to be too animation-driven to stand out?
Not very helpful, but sometimes problems like these are best solved by establishing your expertise as a designer and only working clients who have trust in that ability.

comment Use of TWO hamburger menus in mobile app
There's another piece you may be hinting at... our job as designers is to create UI that solves people's problems. If you allow clients to dictate the solutions, you're cheating them out of the value they're paying for: an expert "UI maker". Showing the client their concerns are heard is essential... now explain to them that this decision is yours to make, and that they're in good hands!

Good answer. Showing user tests is a great way to convince clients.

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.

comment Toggle Buttons vs Tabs
@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.

comment What is the reason behind the upper-case-lower-case behaviour of the Apple iOS keyboard?
Just to clarify: it's not that lowercase characters don't become capitalized on iOS, it's that they're already capitalized.

comment Selecting many elements from a long list
If you go with HTML checkboxes, be sure to use <label> tags and set the "for" attribute correctly. This'll increase the size of the click target, and users who have to click 100 times will appreciate it!

comment All my users are from Afghanistan; or, how to get users to correctly fill out a form
You're right Monica, the question is clear--I apologize! However, the original poster links to a form where there is no default option and Afganistan is already selected (hence my confusion).

comment What control to use to select multiple months?
It might not be clear enough how to select March - November instead of November - March (esp. for the colorblind)

comment Is there any research into whether using the word “free” in a call to action button or any offer would enhance conversions
Good question, but someone else's research might not work for your specific case. This is just the kind of thing A/B testing is useful for (see optimizely.com/ab-testing).

comment Why don't most forms have a hover state?
Not sure I understand how Bootstrap/Zurb forms have a "hover state". FWIW however, Google search does use a hover style on non-focused form inputs: google.com/#q=foo
