comment Frameworks for web applications with UX focus
@cathro oh I agree entirely about testing for your local audience, I just thought it was an interesting example to pick, since it's one of the things I'd found that tested well.

comment Frameworks for web applications with UX focus
That's an interesting observation. When we tested it with our users it tested very well, with no cases at all of user confusion.

comment How effective are banners in the left sidebar on ecommerce websites?
There might be a low number of clicks, but have they seen any uplift in sales for products featured in the banner due to the additional exposure? In my experience, those banners are valuable more for impressions than clicks. Since every product featured in them is visible on every pdp on the site

comment Why are keyboards, Mouses designed to make sound when pressed and clicked?
Personally, I feel crippled when typing on a silent laptop keyboard, and feel noticeably slower when typing on an ordinary keyboard. I'm only really happy when I'm typing on model M or another keyboard with the loud cherry MX "blue" switches.

comment Compare engagement of different push mediums
+1 for interesting question, but be aware that open rates signal different things across different media. 95% open rates for smses just tell you that there isn't a delete button on the list view, not that 95% of people actually read them once opened. It certainly isn't comparable to an email open rate, since the interaction workflows are so different between the two.

comment UK Locations, permalinks, and textual representation
@JonW Those are good points. I think you can partially mitigate against a and b with good use of alt attributes, and I'd argue that c is more likely than recognising the name of the county a particular place is (esp with regards to pinned locations on a full country map), but I'd have to know more about the specific audience being targeted to make better recommendations.

comment Asking location in the UK
@jonW The issue is that the post office's list of postcodes isn't guaranteed by them to be comprehensive or accurate. It's designed to be good enough for a local postman who knows the area to get post to the correct place. So their list doesn't actually cover every dwelling in the country. New build locations sometimes don't have postcodes for up to several years.

comment Asking location in the UK
Postcodes have a big drawback. Not all locations have a postcode, and some postcodes are recorded against places that no longer exist (e.g. derelict buildings that have been knocked down), if you're using postcode as the only differentiator, some people simply cannot be classified, since their house doesn't have one.

comment What is “elegant” design?
I wish I could +1 once for the explanation of elegance, and then +1 again for the paragraph about the UX advantages of an elegant design.
