@varun86 But how do you know if the wow factor has been achieved? Testing doesn't have to mean asking the customer about their expectation. I use it to mean anything that can build your understanding of the context within which you are designing.

comment Layout for adding one or more contacts to a record
+1 I like some of the ideas in this. I wonder, when a user first arrives at the page could they have a moment where they say "Oh no, I only see one row. But I want to add 5 contacts"? Is there a way to reassure them or hint at the ability to add more?

comment Graphic design critique parameters
Thanks. I was cautious in listing parameters to critique a design because I don't think this is the best approach. Its when the elements of design combine to form a story to addresses the goals that any meaningful judgements occur. A designer might describe elements such as line, shape, shade etc. But these are given meaning by a story.

comment Is “Tweet to Unlock a Free Download” a dark pattern?
My answer on dark patterns might add to this: ux.stackexchange.com/a/24517/15613 . In my opinion there are a lot of irritating or restricting things that don't necessarily fit into the definition of a dark pattern.

comment What are the available options for choosing an area by latitude and longitude?
@MSalters Good point. You should never assume knowledge until you know your users. This is probably not something the average person has ever needed to learn. However there will be some audiences that have. I'm guessing some emergency services, military, pilots, some farmers. As for me; I spent a lot of time in wilderness areas navigating at first with a compass and highly accurate maps then later on a GPS. Therefore I needed to know a little to find water, shelter and stay safe.
