comment Alternate to gantt chart
From your description, it seems like dependencies is what's causing your chart to look confusing. Can you tell us more about the kind of linkages between your tasks? Do you need to support multiple type of dependencies: Finish - Start, Start - Start, Finish - Finish, Start - Finish ? The more complex your dependency relationships, the more you should stick with a conventional display. In this case, a gantt view.

comment Nonparametric vs. Parametric tests
I'm not sure this is type of discuss is on topic for UX.SE. But nonparametric tests are less powerful. Your first step should be to be visually inspect the data to see how it's distributed, then you decide what tests to use.

comment Is it worth spending time to design a tablet-friendly site in 2016?
+1 for this "maybe users aren't choosing to view your site in tablet because it's not designed to be therefor not a pleasant experience." See if you have budget to do user/customer research.

comment Representing Chronological flow in a table
Putting the sort arrows control next to the "most & less recent" indicator might be helpful.

comment Representing Chronological flow in a table
Why should the order of entry matter? Consider adding a date range field to your table. Allow users to enter this however they feel like, then sort the results appropriately.

comment How would you handle pluralization of irregular nouns such as “person”?
This is more of an English language readability question for developers... majority of us UXers aren't engineers who commonly use APIs. You may have more luck directly asking your API consumers.

comment How to hire a UX professional?
From the developer, UXer interaction perspective, constant communication is the key. A good UXer shares ideas with the Dev early to get feedback on feasibility and technical concerns. Similarly, if the Dev runs into implementation difficulties, reach out to the UXer to discuss the issue and work together to come up with an alternate approach. If you don't know something, come chat. Don't make guesses.

comment How to hire a UX professional?
This feels like a far too broad a question to be asked on the forum. As a client requesting UX service, it's best to keep an open mind. Describe the perceived problem to them and allow them to suggest possible solutions. e.g. try not to go in with the mindset of I need a mobile app to do XYZ. Often times a UXer will follow up with lots of questions so they can understand the full picture. Bonus points if you can arrange opportunities for the UXer to speak with & test ideas with actual users.

comment Smartphone indicator light colors - conventional meaning?
In other words, the guidelines say to use the standard "white" for LED. However, app developers customize the color way more than is recommended by the guidelines without explicit user request. Thanks!
