I'm a dual citizen of Ireland and the United States. I'm currently based in West Virginia, though I've lived and worked in Europe and Asia, and have traveled the world.

I'm currently operating as a UX Manager at a large internet security company, and provide web optimization consulting on the side.

I like tech stuff, learning new things, and picking up my cats with one hand to make myself feel big and strong.

Why not just stick with convention and use the "confirm email address" method?

comment Personal Websites - Simple or Animated, how to balance between creativity and content-ambiguity?
Regarding your note: Yes, this is a question that is phrased in way that it solicits subjective opinion-based answers. And no, most UX questions (or answers) are not subjective. This site is full such questions. User-centricity works because helps to remove subjectivity from the design process. You should consider rephrasing your question so it's more about a specific use case or design problem - an answerable question that will provide ongoing value. When a question is as broad as the one you've provided, the answer is always "it depends".

comment How to represent user interest in more sectors of same category?
What have you got so far? Can you provide a wireframe? or some extra context? You'll probably get a better answer if you provide a better starting point. Who and what is this UI for? These categories and subcategories; are they fixed or can user create them, if so, how would that work?

comment Can we expect users to close popovers by just clicking away?
@Andrew This may be true, but it doesn't mean they're infallible, or incapable of deploying something imperfect. My take is that big companies sometimes get things wrong because they're big (Microsoft being the extreme example) or simply because they can afford to. This all reminds me of sending an article to a (ecommerce site-owning) client, explaining multiple ways in which carousels are bad. He sent back a link to the Nike homepage. One big carousel. Something we can demonstrate to be a poor practice, in use by one of the biggest brands on the planet.

comment Should language be part of a website url?
Also, no need for the scare quotes or italics on "Domain Authority". This is not an arbitrary term or concept. It's a metric developed by the Seattle-based company Moz (formerly SEOMoz) that had been embraced by the industry.

@earthmeLon - You can use rel="canonical" to distinguish between pages on different sites. Yes. But canonical URLs don't make any reference to language or region. hreflang essentially replaces and can be used the place of rel canonical. As for requiring a single domain to which you give whatever. Doesn't really make sense. Two different CCTLDs; .com and .com.mx, both can deliver similar content for the same brand, canonical or hreflang can be used, but they are obviously not one single domain.

@corsiKa - Flags may be used a lot, but in a lot of cases they're used incorrectly. The site flagsarenotlanguages.com shows the multitude of ways of getting the flag/language/country thing wrong. Most designers put a lot less attention than necessary into this feature. As you've mentioned it, I'll edit my answer to work it in. Thanks.
