comment Where to put personalized recommendations feature?
@NirupamaPrasanna Sounds like your manager is going to determine what happens here. As a manager he or she obviously know the right answer to every problem ; ) If you can't push back against your manager, then you don't really have an option but to do what s/he says.

comment Save untested connection when testing is possible?
Edited to make the question more about the core problem here. "User Experience for..." is a redundant phrasing on this site. I appreciate there are other questions, but those are dependent on the crux of the interaction, which is whether or not you should force saving.

comment Manual entry for missing items in datatable
@Mutmatt If you're still interested in working something out for this, I have a question about the secrecy aspect. What about the items is supposed to be a surprise to the user? I understand everything about your question except this.

comment Is there an optimal position for user polls on a website?
@JeromeR This is a good point - research is specific to contexts. So many questions on this site looking for research to show something that in all likelihood wouldn't apply to their situation.

comment Nested edit states. What to do when edits are save-able at local and global level?
Then you can just make sure that you differentiate between "Save Requirement" at the local level, and "Save all changes" at the global level.

comment What is the best interface for multi selecting from a list?
I think you should dig deeper, but into this technical restraint that prohibits the use of the slider. Seems like a development shortcoming.

Sounds unconventional : ) What's the issue with just using buttons?

comment Nested edit states. What to do when edits are save-able at local and global level?
Nice wireframes. I think the reason this question has gone a whole day without any input is that, despite your excellent explanation, there's just a little too much reading/thinking required to get into a position to answer it. It's also no obvious quick slam dunk answer that's going to win a lot of points. It's sad, but that's the way the site has become : /

comment More clicks while using “Noun” or “Verb” for actions?
On a quick related note: in this specific examples, "Become a member/donor" is a more natural-sounding verb to use here

Hi @Jesper - you're more going to get more attention and better input if you can supplement your question with some visuals. The ux.se editor has wireframing functionality built in for this purpose.

comment Combining menu navigation with numerical survey results
It's hard to tell if the end result is going to be confusing, because all the repetition of the placeholder content (menu item, menu item, menu group, etc.) is in itself confusing, or at least, it's not clear. I think it would be much easier to assess if you were to use some real content in the wireframe. If you can use real data for proprietary reasons, use something equivalent that gives the same experience.

comment User experience justification for completely eliminating selection graphics for inactive windows?
There's a chance that the justification went something like this: "Testing has found that we add functionality X, cell (and other) highlight graphics are lost when the app isn't in focus. To maintain this behavior would require Y weeks and Z dollars. Is the value to the user enough to justify this expense?" And the behavior got cut in the balance.

comment Best way to create responsive sidebar content
This question is too broad in its current format. Here's what the documentation says about questions that might be closed because of broadness: "There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs." You will see more success if you make your question more specific, perhaps by adding some wireframes/screenshots and describing a specific UX problem.

comment Should call to actions (CTAs) be included in product search result listings?
The nature and phrasing of this question will likely result in it getting closed for being too opinion-based, leading to a discussion based on subjective feelings, which is not what this site's for - ux.stackexchange.com/help/dont-ask You should consider reconstructing the question so that it can be answered objectively in a way that provides general and lasting value for future readers ux.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic

comment What's the best place to put terms and conditions on an ecommerce?
@Stratboy I think you both might be exaggerating the effect of having to click a single checkbox, and one that is asking a very common question is very conventional location. "Quite some loss in sales"? Seriously? The counter argument is that you don't want users to have to think about the T&Cs, which goes against the point of having them in the first place. If you can justify taking the same approach as Amazon, then go ahead, just make sure all your legal documents reflect this strategy. I think you'd be messing with sensible pattern, for a tiny gain in usability.

comment How to tell a user a menu is a page or not
This question could use a little more context? You call it a website, but users are adding and removing menu items? What's the reason users can do this?

comment best ux for users to input multiple strings
+1 - The tagging right here on UXSE works in a similar way. This answer would be even better if it was supported by a screen shot that communicated the interaction ; )

Thanks. I think sub-processes might be the way to go.

comment What to do when process diagrams become too big?
Thanks for the suggestion, but writing JS isn't a core competence, so this will just add to the complexity of the deliverable.

comment What to do when process diagrams become too big?
@nightning - I'd love to be able to go analog with this, but our product and engineering people are spread across the globe. Also, this problem is more about the design of the information than of the format it takes.
