comment How do you make sure users know that there is a tooltip attached to something?
what extra information would you want to offer over a text? if there's a text, why not just the tooltip into the text?

comment How do you make sure users know that there is a tooltip attached to something?
when the user hovers above or clicks the ? icon the tooltip appears in a bubble. Another option is to show the tooltip in a fixed box on the screen, and it shows the tooltip the moment the user hovers over a field. You can get many more ideas here: uxmatters.com/mt/archives/2007/05/dynamic-help-in-web-forms.php

comment Does adding a click count next to a hyperlink enhance the user experience?
click counts shows you what others have done. Like's counter shows you what people voted for. The psychological mechanism of following the herd is the same.

comment Does adding a click count next to a hyperlink enhance the user experience?
@SnakeDoc, the answer is sound as it gets. The explanation is very simple ("Social proof"), even if it's short. Note my answer does not rely on FB, rather just reinforces and clarifies the argument with a common sensible example.

comment Tree View Alternative for Form Input on Website
also, do you validate the data on the fly (in-line) or when the user clicks "submit" or "validate"?

comment Why would I use a validator when I can use a spinbox?
to be more accurate, there are spinners for touch interfaces (they tend to take the bottom half of the screen when the field is tapped).

comment Are “Thank You for Unsubscribing to our Newsletter” emails necessary?
Many sites I unsubscribed from their lists presented me with a screen going "we're sorry to see you go". The more constructive websites showed me how I can re-subscribe easily in the future, in case I change my mind.

sometimes I have real data I want to show, but most times I have only mock-data (that's the nature of designing before implementing).

comment Ask users to input or just show the field
go check out what hipmunk.com did in a similar situation. The user who lands on their page has to choose flights or hotels. They show a hint of the needed input, and expand the relevant box according to the user's choice. If not a straight answer, it sure would give some inspiration.

comment Alternative to accordion for large search filters?
I don't understand your question, or how it relates to accordions. Are you asking weather to show the filters by default?

comment Sharing mockups with annotations
(Sorry, I have to repeat my comment on an essentially repeated answer) Easier said than done. When your a vendor working for a big corporation ruled by high-rank managers and committees, you are often required, not requested, to provide your mockups annotated. You're in no position to educate them "let's get lean, and reduce documentation efforts". This is not always realistic.

comment What is the best way to display language changing option?
Indeed, guessing the language automatically is just providing with the best default. It doesn't eliminate the need for a way to change the language, just makes it a lot less needed.
