comment Should Front-End UI and Back-end UI be designed by same person?
There is no such thing as 'back-end UI'; back-end, by definition, has no user interface - no presentation layer. A better term is admin interface.

comment Better approach to design sub-menu for item management menu
What's the context of usage? What are the user goals? What sort of tasks they may perform? How often? How many items are involved?

comment graph exploration and data overload
There are A LOT of papers on this topic. Just put 'Graph visualisation' in scholar.google.com. But you can't push an elephant through a key hole, and in the case of the brain you can't make the key hole any bigger. So you need to make the elephant smaller, slicing it, and communicate the best slices, while possibly using progressive disclosure.

comment Icon Visual Alternative for “Keep Open” functionality
@ChrisW. There's a wealth of cognition that pours into UX and is based on years of empirical studies, not quite on opinions. We like Nielsen because most of his publications are the result of systematic investigations. Even the stuff that is opinion-sourced, when properly done, goes through some rigorous data collection and analysis methods. Remember that even Einstein's general relativity is ultimately based of beliefs.

Most of UX is about opinions? Max Wertheimer and quite a few people would turn in their graves, or if still alive - in their beds.

comment The Personal in Personas
It should be noted that personas are not without some controversy. The concept is seemingly great, it helps many (including myself sometimes), and is a standard part of the UX curriculum. But it has its opponents and there's actually quite a bit of empirical research that casts doubts on their usefulness, whilst also revealing some key issues, especially when used with non-UXers. Believability, which personal aspects are largely to serve, is one of these issue.

comment How would you have avoided the Miss Universe 2015 mistake?
I love this answer! I think that the folding matters less, it's the idea of not presenting them all at once. Admittedly, myself, like many of the other responders, were blind to this line of solution and focusing too much on trying to rearrange the lines on a single card. You could easily adapt this idea to 3 separate cards @K.AlanBates.

comment How would you have avoided the Miss Universe 2015 mistake?
@PandaWood, definitely something worth considering - can't really see a fault in it. I didn't mean to come across as evasive - on the contrary, I was apologetic for not following the problem solving process.

comment How would you have avoided the Miss Universe 2015 mistake?
@PandaWood, if I'm honest, I wasn't giving to the redesign too much thought. I was just combating the issues I've mentioned. Personally, I think the winner is the first thing to draw attention (which is the most important thing), from there the announcer will have to scan upwards. These sort of things are already at a level where you probably want user testing rather than informed analysis.
