comment Adding new service (with navigation) to existing layout
Then it sounds like the sidebar isn't going to work for you : ) About the Category/Service relationship; do the services change as you click through the categories? How are they related?

comment Adding new service (with navigation) to existing layout
What is the real problem here? Is it the 4 levels of subpages? or the need for filters?

comment Reconciling temporal relevance with awareness of existence in categorized item tables
I'm happy and interested to continue helping, but I still think that it's too complex a series of interactions to solve from your wireframes and explanation. Your vocabulary isn't the issue, it's just that you're describing concepts that need to be unpacked more. It says a lot that your question title reads like name of an article from the Journal of Quantum Psychology ; ) A good next step might be to make things more concrete, by either showing what the UI currently looks like, or creating a more complete and realistic wireframe. That way the actual problems can be visualized.

comment How to intentionally make an action difficult to do?
@JonasDralle Haha! ; ) I honestly didn't realize you'd said the same thing in your answer, but I think that's the point - I didn't read that far. While there's probably some relationship between images and upvotes, I think the difference here is between an almost 500-word field of text, and 40 words with a compelling image to back up (even though your answer is arguably better and more thorough than mine). Not every answer can or should be as concise as this, but the key thing is to be succinct and get to the point quickly.

comment How to intentionally make an action difficult to do?
As in, a user has selected multiple items to delete at the same time?

comment Reconciling temporal relevance with awareness of existence in categorized item tables
I'm sorry. I'm usually quick to get this kind of thing, but I'm still not clear. What exactly is the user try to do here? What action are you trying to enable? Also how many potential categories are there? Could you try to re-ask the question in a less complex way?

comment Reconciling temporal relevance with awareness of existence in categorized item tables
This still doesn't really clear things up for me. Your question says "On the overview list, only one item is shown per category" but in your example you have two items from Cat. A and two from Cat. B

comment How to make meaning of upvote clear?
@travisbickle What's an example of a scenario (e.g. on IMDB) where you don't like something, but think it should have a higher score?

comment How do Enterprise Softwares validate A/B testing?
I considered adding a paragraph to my answer with the subheading "In your case, it might not matter that much". That is, it might be difficult to get meaningful results from timing interactions and significance testing. Not just because you might struggle to generate enough numbers to get valuable results, but because you have access to users and can answer questions more directly.

Yup, I'm probably going to go with something like this, thanks.

comment How to avoid big banks of buttons?
Good input, thanks. Regarding the provision of more helpful information, unfortunately we're not really in a position to approach developers with anything more than "strip and tweak" changes. Right now, if it's a costly change/update, it's not going to get approved. Your advice is good though, but perhaps for a time when we can make some real changes.

comment How to avoid big banks of buttons?
I'd like to avoid hiding stuff in dropdowns as much as possible, but it's a good point about color. We could just change to an empty button shape, like the "default" button in Bootstrap 3.

comment What should be displayed when the user selects an overall category?
This seems like it would depend a lot on the implementation. It'd be really helpful if you could put together a quick wireframe of the current set up, or of your suggested fix (i.e. showing subcategories)

comment How can a retractable pen design be enhanced to discourage users from clicking the pen frequently?
We just landed a probe on a comet 4 billon miles away, we could use appropriate materials and noise cancellation technology to make a pen that made no perceivable sound - the problem is that one would retail for $5,000-$10,000. Your question should make reference to the challenge as being cost prohibitive, not impossible.

comment Is a product feature list suitable to display in a table?
@shahar - in that case everything is just a table without the gridlines : ) Saying that, there was a time on the web when everything was actually tables. Surely it's the containment within a grid that makes something a table? That's what we've gotta be talking about here. Otherwise, anything(s) that have visual linear relationships could be called "tabular", and that doesn't sound right, does it?

comment Should you sketch out each page/section before wireframing?
You sound like a good match for Interactive Sketching Notation. I'm not sure how I managed before I found it. linowski.ca/sketching.php

comment How can I prevent the user from deselecting all the checkboxes?
I think you've got a pretty good solution here. All of the answers below make things less clear or more complicated. Add some JS that shows a message when the user tries to deselect the last option.
