comment How should I visually represent multiple three-state flags?
@Urbycoz I'm not sure your statement that it would be much quicker is correct. I see no evidence for that.

comment Are confirmation messages for visible changes necessary?
Excellent. This really captures the types of decisions you need to make

comment Can placing dark and light elements or blocks next to each other in a UI lead to problems in visual perception?
Can you see a scenario where the dark area draws attention first?

On the contrary, I think that is certainly one of the effects that needs to be considered

The 'signal element' will not be the same and that is part of the point. Sometimes it might be data that summarises a category and can be used to navigate, other times it will be a chart, other times it might be a list of tickets or clients.

comment How can I keep up-to-date with the latest thinking about designing complex, rich applications?
@Lode I'd have to agree. This is what I was referring to when I said it was easy to find simple controls, website or mobile app inspiration. However truly complex applications and interface techniques is a lot harder.

That could be quite a good idea.

Thanks. The issue I have is the systems and interactions I am designing for are quite a bit more complex than Google Finance for example. Also, as a comment, it is quite difficult to find good infographics among the piles of bad.

Thanks. Do you know of any good twitter feeds/users relevant to this?

comment Include user requirements in the persona document?
Are these requirements stated by the users? Or are they a list of 'requirements' that map to functions and features based on an interpretation of user needs?

comment Are verbs necessary on field labels for a survey?
General statements are always true....except when they aren't :) Less is more ... until its too much. The principle of simplicity is an excellent aim, however it might be more accurate to say "just enough" (to get the job done).

comment Are circular menu / button interfaces intuitive?
@BenBrocka Very true. Though I was making a distinction between a wholly touch interface and a partial one.

comment Are circular menu / button interfaces intuitive?
I've awarded the "Accepted answer" to you as I felt you gave the best answer by far. I appreciated the thought and links included. One thing I will add is though this could be used in a touch interface, the design was suggested for desktop use.

comment What is the best voting system
And why would this be the best? I'm sure it has its benefits but it might be nice to explain. Thanks.

comment Is it true that “the only 'intuitive' interface is the nipple”?
+1 Probably the most coherent and well explained answer here.

comment Graphic design critique parameters
@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.
