comment Colored circles to signify status - a violation of accessibility guidelines?
@A.L, sorry for the misunderstanding, I wasn't sarcastic. Greyscale mode does what it says on the tin - the whole iPhone display becomes greyscale so no more colours (like B&W TV), which simulates monochromacy. On desktops, Chrome plugins like See help to simulate other visual impairments. These are just some of the tools used to accessibility-check designs.

@A.L, much as vaseline on glasses simulates cataracts.

@plainclothes are you suggesting that discriminating against the impaired is just? And as for the greyscale mode, have you ever heard of Empathic Design?

comment Not including a 'first page' and 'last page' button in a data table
There isn't a direct specification for pagination in their design documents. I think you infer something from the screenshot which you shouldn't. Last page links may or may not be useful for users depending on the data presented. My guess is that for exactly such reason there is no direct reference to this issue.

comment Should there be a space after the copyright symbol ©?
@Kevin Despite the wikipedia article, I'm next to sure this is no longer the case. See "LIMITED RIGHTS AND CLEAR NOTICE NO LONGER HELP USERS AVOID INFRINGING" in law.uci.edu/faculty/full-time/reese/…

comment For death year, should I use N/A or — if person still alive?
@TotZam Still not explicit as writing "Still alive".

comment For death year, should I use N/A or — if person still alive?
@TotZam. I'm actually with Vitaly on this. Providing N/A can be confusing, because it may be interpreted as ("We don't know"; "We haven't got these details yet"). I think the solution proposed is a good one, if truly concerned, you can always have "Died: still alive". This will make it as explicit as you can. But I'd refrain from using "N/A".

comment Need a prominent way to show the sorted column
There isn't really a standard because each UX problem is unique. With this in mind, making something prominent is of little challenge. Could you elaborate on "I have a design problem where multiple factors affect the sort order."? The sort is often initiated by the user, is this not the case with your system?

comment Austosave causing clearing of input data
This seems more like an implementation question, but nevertheless it is unclear what you are asking. Could you explain what happens better? Does the user has two comment tabs open and when clicking back on one, the it saves empty comment?

comment Any recommendations on horizontal scrolling on tablets/mobile apps?
Highly relevant: Beware Horizontal Scrolling and Mimicking Swipe on Desktop (Nielsen Norman Group).
