comment The Usability of “Lightbox UIs”
Hmmm, not sure that taking user to a new page every time is always a better alternative. With a lightbox you can still see some context. With a new page user is out of context. You could also have a lightbox that closes if loses focus so you don't really need to be forced to do anything. If think we really need some data and also it depends on details of lightbox implmentation.

comment What's a good alternative to lightboxes?
Modals/Lightboxes are not wrong by default. In some cases, when they are limited to small amount information they could work well. I think they give user reassurance that the context is not lost. Airbnb is a nice example (favorite a place scenario). It also allows user to focus on limited amount of information without distractions.

comment What are some design paradigms to follow when I want to put icons over an image (instead of using header bar to show icons)
@MikeMilla think if you slide the screen down it might be more obvious that there is more content below. But yes agree that it's more likely that it will be missed.

comment Checkbox or radio button
Would it be possible to provide a bit more context to this question? So we could understand what the datasource is? It's a bit hard to relate to it :)

comment Why Amazon, Walmart, Fab and others have “login” only under main menu? Why not both login and register?
I think since so many sites put sign up and login on the same page, Login has a more broad meaning for a lot of people. But Login/Register might be a good option too, I am not arguing with that :)

comment Singe table where items can be filtered and reordered
Thanks Izhaki! Excellent ideas. Interestingly we arrived to very similar idea at a little brainstorming session just right now. So hopefully the design will be intuitive.

comment What symbols should be used for YES and NO when the user can't read?
Agree, Yes and No also requires users to read question (do more work). More expressive controls could make it easier since you may not need to read the questions. Unless it's one of a very generic forms where you know I just need to says "No/Yes" for all of the questions.

comment Why does the email subject appear before the body when composing an email?
The question is specific to the writer and not the reader.

comment Long page trend: effectiveness and guidelines
I don't have a specific website in mind. The question is about general guidelines. Once you have these guidelines, you can use them to determine whether the site justifies long page design. And also you will have a set of guidelines to make the long page more usable.

comment Long page trend: effectiveness and guidelines
I am looking for some guidelines; the question you list doesn't really provide the guidelines.

comment Borders editing control usability
+1, Agree with double click confusion and no need to show the look of the borders in the little rectangle. Other controls that are shown on the right of the control show the state already.

comment If you can't improve loading time, is distracting the user a good technique?
Hipmunk hipmunk.com does a nice job with animation: cute chipmunk flying and on ipad they give you tips about using their product. Cute and informative at the same time.
