comment Country switch / selection on mobile site
... I guess it would be better to list "Latin America" directly below "North America". Else I find the labels pretty common and clear. Something like a flag filter seems to be a nice approach. Though I wouldn't follow up on it as it seems to be a very playful approach that would not suit my audience and seems not quick enough to serve as an acceptable solution.

comment Country switch / selection on mobile site
Thanks Crissov though I find awful a pretty hard criticism. 1. The country switch does not intend to list all countries in the world but only the ones where products are available (=countries with their own site). Therefore, North America only includes 2 out of 5 countries. 2. Regions go back to the 'Classification of countries by major area and region of the world' by the UN. So, they are not wrong – and I assume Latin America is a valid and understandable counterpart for North America – even if it doesn't have "South" in its name. ...

comment Country switch / selection on mobile site
Honestly, I doubt that a map is a good experience considering given requirements – especially on mobile. 60 country websites compared to approx 200 countries in the world The map would be a dead-end in many cases or at least require an extra case if there's no site for a country – e.g. direct the user to the global site, inform him that this is because his country isn't covered A map will always require interaction like the zoom Imagine selecting Monaco ... It would be possible to make the map accessible by regions – but then again you'd have to group countries which you say is a bad idea.

comment How do you deal with too many bullets in a slider?
The question is: What's the purpose of the pagination? In my eyes the following reasons are applicable (sorted by priority) 1 indicate the user's current position within the sequence of pages 2 provide the total number of pages 3 enable users to navigate Using more than a certain number of dots (maybe 6 or 7) will still give the user an orientation about his approx. position but will already make it hard to capture the total of pages. Adding more and more dots will make it impossible. When dots overflow the viewport you won't even be able to navigate. So does this solution still make sense?

comment Icons vs. Dropdown for primary mobile navigation
Very good points! I'd always have voted for icons but now I had a project where we used icons in the first place. Now we are facing these problems: - the navigation has to grow but there is no real estate for more icons - not all sections can be representd well by an icon - the icon bar already requires many pixels - as well we have to cater for more elements like page titles and back links. all this takes away to much room of the content area

comment Sort by recent / popular: Use tabs or buttons?
Hi, I have two questions when I read this. Do you sort your content by "Recent" and "Most popular" or do you want to use these as filters. Can one content/article only appear in one of the categories "Recent" or "Most popular" or could an article be related to both. At a first glance I'd tend to say, you want to apply filters - in that case i think a button or a link would be the better choice - I'd even say tabs would be wrong in that case.

comment Dropdown vs map
That's what I'd do as well: combination of map and dropdown(s) as alternative. A map might cause issues as stated above if it's a static map. But a map can create much better involvement and far better experience if it's interactive, working well and is designed nicely.

comment Best solution to inform and enable users to save changes on a page
:-) I guess nothing. It just felt unfamiliar as I've never seen sth different that version 1, 2 or 3.

comment Why do my / sent text messages appear on the right of the dialogue?
good point. Thanks for your comment. This as well pointed me to the fact that I see the message I'm answering directly above the text field - not somewhere on the right ... might be a reason too.

comment Would Breadcrumbs be effective if they incorporate Dropdowns?
thanks Karen and Joern for this example! To be honest I realized the Windows Explorer offers this but never really used it. Guess the alternative navigation options in the Explorer are just to various to really make use of all of them.
