comment Use of TWO hamburger menus in mobile app
What does each icon do when you click on it?

comment Lazy context menus
What sort of worse-case delay are we talking about here? Some system can take 20-30 seconds to respond (data mining). My whatsapp takes about 12 second to become responsive on my iPhone 4s.

comment Support consistency or primary user journey?
@Sarah, I don't think 'Muscle memory' is the right term here - it is used to denote motor actions that require no conscious attention.

comment Accessible and Responsive Tables?
@Pdxd A) This discussion should really move to the chat room. B) I'm really interested in your experience, working solution and feedback/criticism. C) Do remember that the question was about accessibility AND responsiveness. D) I wish I could test it with users, but we only tested it with Voice Over. E) God knows when I'll find the time, but I'll try to share with you the recording of the screen reader and the DOM.

comment Accessible and Responsive Tables?
@Pdxd. Correct me if I'm wrong but <ol><li> elements is semantic markup - a list item within an ordered list. Accessibility wise, you can put whatever markup and ARIA in the DOM to help AT usage. I'm not sure why quantity is being attached to semantics here: the semantics of 15 fields are these fields, and 50 rows is just 50 rows. Say you'd have to read to a blind person all the football fixtures of his favourite team for a whole season, what semantics you'd have in mind other than the information of each fixture?

comment Accessible and Responsive Tables?
@KRyan I'm not sure I get it. The header is marked aria-hidden. Each 'ol' and 'li' item has aria-label and other cross-readers attributes. Am I missing something?

comment Ideal breaks for long numbers?
Where is this thumb rule from? Because in UX you will rarely find identical, or even similar problems - context changes a lot in what already involves many many variables. Michael Jackson (not the late singer) said that rules of thumbs are for people who apply a solution without really thinking about the problem.

comment Ideal breaks for long numbers?
Seriously doubt the Word Superiority Effect applies here - the process involving word recognition shares little with that of numbers. You could tell what the missing letters in le_t and b_rd are, but you wouldn't be able to tell the missing digit in 38_1.

comment Is there a research about effectiveness of swipe interfaces vs tap interfaces?
There are quite a few relevant hits if you search for swipe tap touch on Google Scholar.

comment How to show that items in a “Filtered” List will contain only a portion of what would be in the unfiltered item?
The question is unclear - could you please try to elaborate or make it clearer?

comment How to show validation messages on a modal/dialog form
Only slightly related - this seems to be a fill-and-forget type of form; meaning users enter details and move on, without being able to view the filled form again. So instead of labels you can use placeholders. That will buy you some space.

comment Displaying statistics: Use spider graphs?
Hi Farbod. The question is very broad. There is a lot of theory out there on what graphs can be used with different types of data sets, and their pros and cons. Just the fact you wish to plot shooting accuracy cannot inform the type of graph to be used - what are the other dimensions? And what sort of information users would like to extract?

comment Alternative to View Panes
It is unclear what you are asking. Are you interested in a comparison between the horizontal/vertical/split layouts, or in an alternative to such layouts altogether?

comment Process layouts and userflows
In addition, you'll have to define - ideally via an example - what you consider a user flow... some do not see it as the same as others.

comment Should “Deletion successful” confirmation be red, or green?
@Luc you are in a bit of trouble if a seemingly optimal solution is denied because colour semantics is already 'hard-coded' into the interface. The maxim 'more colours more problems' comes to mind here - and it seems you are already facing issue: the semantics of colours is a dangerous territory. From a cognitive perspective - colours (like red) can be used to draw attention, but otherwise should ideally not convey semantics (users have to make sense of what each colour mean). The colour templates provided by bootstrap et al can be easily misused if one keeps UX in mind.

comment What are the possible/best ways to allow a production mobile app to switch API endpoint to a development server?
I think this is much more of an implementation issue than a UX one. A typical solution for this is to produce a dev and production versions of the app itself, which can use whatever API one wants.

comment Should I keep a consistent pattern of colour and purpose for detail-master and similar multi-paneled website views?
I'd recommend you add some visual examples to your question - I'm sure you know what it looks like, but building a visual image from words is not easy.

comment What's the best way to show this particular data to a user?
Could you kindly make the title more specific? It's very generic and one cannot tell what the question is about by reading the title only (in listing pages). You should get better answers if the people this question attracts specialise in what you are asking - and a good title will help achieve this.

comment Lowering opacity on hover. Isn't it totally wrong?
Really useful CodePen share. Personally, with hover the two feel semantically similar. You also have to consider that there might also be an 'active' (or selected) state, for which the highlight might be reserved; still doesn't stop anyone from making the hover opacity between that of an active and non-active state.

comment How should breadcrumbs be marked up? Are lists appropriate?
I can't really challenge that (despite H50). From what I've seen <nav> is much more popular. I'll amend my answer.
