comment Should dropdown menus be indicated by arrows?
Providing at least a visual indicator which shows the dropdown functionalitity would be prefered usability wise. I do not see how adding arrows to a design would make clutter. Unless you have a poorly designed website offcourse.

comment Why don't most elevator panels let you unselect?
Sorry, I misread your answer. But in the picture shown, I see a keyhole. I do not expect this keyhole to be asking for my carkeys ;-) Maybe we should have an 'elevator man' in every elevator again?

Seems like a troll, why would I press the alarm button if all I want to do is unselect my selection? I don't press the escape key when I want to unselect my text selection?

Had not yet seen that website. Have seen some others though. At pricerunner they don't seem to differentiate color or icon wise, only position wise. Which is an interesting point of view...

comment Pattern to display Many to Many Relationships in two grids
What would be the primary point of entry? Would the users always search for the clause corresponding with a document? Or could they search the other way around. Not that you should provide all the options to the user. But a single point of entry makes things and decisions a lot easier...

Im having a hard time understanding what you are trying to archieve. Could you elaborate by giving a bit more context?

This is denitetely the best of options. It prevents irritation with 98% of the users. +1

comment How to display date and time
Why is the purpose of the site not important. The purpose is the ultimate argument in narrowing your options down to a single format. - What type of items will they leave on the site? - What is the typical 'waiting time'?

comment Amber outlined required field
Why not create a quick user test. Setting 1: a form with asterisks Setting 2: a form with amber highlighting. Have them fill out a complicated form and check whether the first or last setting makes users fill out the form in one "go"..

You are right Michael, I'll continue with trying to find some budget for the ethnographic part. I would like to use the input from my 'developers session' in (hopefully) upcoming end-user sessions.

As of right now, there is zero foundation or whatsoever. By foundation I mean documentation, existing user needs, user requirements or even a proper styleguide. But yes, I guess I know some of the user's goals. I just finished a short session with two developers, which resulted in some clear user needs. I'll just start from there.
