comment how to implement a style guide for a team of 2-4
I'm a fan of live style guides as well. You can actually see, right there on the page, what the elements will all look like, and get access to the underlying code either via a textbox, or just viewing source.

comment Research on scrolling within modal (web)? pros/cons?
I'd say DA01 hits the major pain point. As long as you make sure that there's only one scrolling area, you've already fixed a big annoyance. When you have more than one scrolling area, it's very easy for the user to accidentally move their cursor to the wrong spot and start scrolling what they didn't intend to.

comment Do “add” or “edit” functions need a confirm button?
To add on to Joshua, in general, I think that anything that is not able to be undone easily (i.e. no Undo button), there should be a confirmation.

comment Is the browser back button still the second most used navigation feature?
Could opening a link in a new tab, reading that tab, and then closing it to land on the original tab still be considered going "back"?

comment When user testing, how important are representative users?
Sorry, I should have included a little more background. The company I work for has been established for over 10 years now, and it's used on a daily basis by several thousand users. So, finding users isn't the issue, but rather the friction I run up against in the process.

comment What kind of design do users like the most at the time of this question, 'Flat' or 'Skeuomorphic'?
Not to rebut your question, but rather to add onto it... was there every any research or work done into finding out whether people liked skeumorphic designs in the first place? I've always seen them as being a rather contentious issue among designers in different camps.

comment Should we be designing for touch first?
I'd also add in that if Windows 8 is a hint of the road where Microsoft wants to take future editions of Windows, touch will undoubtedly become bigger than having a pointer available. Discussing Win8 is another topic in and of itself, but I can definitely see the traditional desktop moving towards a touch environment.

Upvote for saying audience is important. However, just because it's a majority audience doesn't mean that minority audiences shouldn't be not thought of.

comment Should I increase or decrease items in a wizard progress?
Just want to say +1 and add emphasis on the fact that big long forms will be largely detrimental to conversion! Less, in the case of web forms, is always more. However, also be careful not to let the fact that you're hiding form elements upfront as an excuse to overload. Your user can drop off or decide the form is not worth filling out at any time, so it's best to be choosy with what you ultimately include.

comment Is there any vaild free or paid tool that help measuring the effectiveness and usability of products?
User testing is pretty generic in that it doesn't really matter when you test... the testing will always show you what is currently wrong with your product. Of course, it's always nicer to get the usability issues ironed out before release, but it definitely does not hurt to test after release. (It can probably only help!)

comment What do users think of try[productname].com style domains?
Hah, you hit it spot on. I'm going for this kind of domain because the domain without "try" is taken. :P
