comment Testing OK/Cancel buttons
Thanks for the informative response, Michael. Do you know of any good tools I can use to record the test that might help with measuring response time too?

comment Testing OK/Cancel buttons
Excellent points - in this case I've actually changed all the buttons from OK/Cancel to more descriptive exactly the same as the examples you've given, e.g. Save/Cancel, Confirm Delete/Do not delete etc. - but a well raised point all the same!

comment Floating submit/cancel buttons
possibly confusing wording, I must admit, but what I believe may happen is the users might not fully understand the size/length of the entire form and think that the above-the-fold items are the only ones

Brilliant link, worth a read for any UX person who works with web

comment Floating submit/cancel buttons
Thanks for your answer, +1 for covering both sides. The form is rather variable and will show different fields based on context. The more fields filled in the better, in all cases.

comment Re-plotting items on a map
Thanks for your answer Aadaam. I'd considered a click-and-hold time based option but this does seem better. +1 for the very informative example

@MattObee to answer your question regarding non drag-and-drop options we've not currently implemented a text only way of moving a marker but we'll need to consider one for accessibility

comment Re-plotting items on a map
Hi Monica/Matt - The left click action grabs the map to pan, but there is no static left click actions currently. In the future other ico types will require left click for further information windows. As far as density goes it's massively variable. There might be only one icon on screen at a time or there could be a cluster - these are the 2 most likely scenarios.

comment How to make an interface look touchable?
I've seen people around and about assuming touch screen more and more recently. You get those kiosks with a screen and a keyboard and sometimes a trackball at train stations and the like, I see a lot of people poking the non-touchscreen displays. Maybe we're learning to assume touch is OK?

comment Why avoid the word “please” in error messages?
I'm not anti-MS at all, don't have emotional attachments to OS's like many do. I don't know WHY MS would care I'm merely wondering whether they're doing it for the sake of THAT UI that you're wording, or if they're doing it to try and solve the bigger problem of the word 'Please' becoming a cliché - all within the scope of "on a computer" - I'm not suggesting MS should be the custodian of the English Language's usage.
