comment Changing button label based on input status
Some designers tend to get rid of the inactive state, like in this blog entry at UXbooth. While I'm not sure if it's really necessary, I would advice to give the user a hint, why a button is deactivated. In this case "Nothing to update right now" or "Change the amount first".

comment When should a dropdown be used?
@mervinj It might be intuitive to them, but that doesn't mean it's intuitive to their audience. You should really pin point that out. However I don't get the mock-up completely. Why is there a store list? Can I click on a store and vote then? Or is it just an adress list, so I have to physically go there and make an X on a sheet or something in the store?

Just a hint: You might get it in almost every bigger library as PDF. The membership fee is for sure less than buying it.

comment How long should a temporary notification appear?
@BenBrocka: Yes, display them differently (they can still be in the same basic style). especially when you say that you're using colored dots for different state. Don't forget, some people are color blind. So when displaying error messages, go for texts like "ERROR: ..." or something similar. Also I would advice not to fade out error messages but to clear them an other way, like an (X) or that they automatically disappear once the error has been eliminated.

comment Should I provide template functionality?
@Ben Brocka: Well that's also a possibility I was thinking of. How ever, it would still require to implement some kind of template handling. And I'm just not sure, if the majority uses templates at all. My oppinion is, that templates are an expert functionality.

comment User friendly language for notifications?
It's a little bit difficult to answer this question, since it lacks context. What are the items? Why do they need to be re-arranged?
