comment Which input control is recommended for a large value range?
IMHO the user doesn't need to understand logarithms - it's very intuitive. I'm sure I've seen this approach in some very non-technical apps and it's worked great. (But may not be appropriate here.)

comment Should I avoid changing a “clunky” UI?
Yep. Ultimately, who matters more: old users, or new users?

comment Why does the Caps Lock not toggle upper and lower case for selected text?
The simple answer which I'm not seeing in other responses is that Capslock is a property of the keyboard, not an action key of some kind. But as noted, there are many more useful things that key could do (Backspace being my preferred).

comment Does the Oxford Comma increase readability?
I would have gone "to my parents and to Jim and Beth". But I guess this isn't english.stackexchange.com.

comment Alternatives to “Like”, “+1”, “Bookmark”, and “Favorite”?
Star seems like the obvious choice. It's used in Chrome, GitHub, Gmail, probably lots of other places.

comment Why don’t we remove door handles and let doors open both ways (inwards, outwards)?
Ok, so dumb question: why do restaurant kitchens even have doors?

comment Credits or Money?
As a user, I'm very distrustful of any attempt to use "credits" instead of dollars. I assume it means the company will do something shady in the future, devaluing them.

comment Why does the close (cross) button in Windows gets special attention?
Sorry, but that's not a great explanation. Close, minimise and maximise all basically work the same way: Windows sends a signal and the app responds, hopefully by doing the conventional thing. And the "red for danger" thing is just a wild guess - no other mainstream window managers do it, nor did Windows prior to Vista.

comment When should a top bar be fixed?
Another option I've seen a few times is a bar that disappears when you scroll down, but reappears whenever you scroll upwards (even if you're still very far down from the top of the page).
