comment Is there any conclusive research about mobile user scrolling habits?
It's not published research, but during a recent user study on a mobile checkout we found that on page load most users flick the screen down to see how long the page is before returning to the top to start filling in the form.

comment for a marketplace slogan, is it better to use the word “discover” or the word “buy”?
I think we just have different but equally legitimate opinions here. I think a marketplace which is nervous about talking its users in the language of buying and selling is also likely to be nervous about the clear labeling of things necessary for good information architecture. But I very definitely respect your opinion, it makes a lot of sense.

comment for a marketplace slogan, is it better to use the word “discover” or the word “buy”?
I do see what you're saying, but to me the primary thing is that they've deliberately gone to an online marketplace, and so they've opted in to being in a space that's about buying things. I don't think it would be unexpected to for them to see messages about buying things. It's the same as if they've chosen to go to a shopping mall to get inspiration. In that case they'd be unlikely to be surprised that the messaging they see relates to buying things, since that's the expected messaging in that space.

comment Tables with a lot of rows - where should the delete option be?
Your first column should be the item in the table the user is most likely to want to scan their eyes down to find the right row. An actions column in that space hurts the table's usability.

there's an opposing argument that if they've arrived on the site with the intention to buy something, then they want the journey to purchase something labelled clearly with the word "buy".

comment Arranging a tall narrow rectangle with a short wide one
Can you arrange a visual hierarchy between them? If one rectangle is pushed back so it's much less prominent than the other, they won't clash for attention so badly.

comment Ask users to input or just show the field
If there are only two choices, I'd use radio buttons rather than a dropdown, so both options are visible when the user loads the page.
