comment Wording: 0% or NO?
I'd argue those mean different things. %s could go into the negative if you actually gained weight, whereas 'no weight loss' wouldn't.

comment What are the core tools and processes an organization should have in place to test web application accessibility
This is a pretty broad question. What your org needs specifically is impossible for us to say. If you have the ability to hire staff, though, hire someone that specializes in this. They will then help you figure out the rest of your needs for you.

comment Is iOS's spell checker good UX?
@Majo0od actually, that's often how things did end up the way they ended up at Apple: Steve Jobs wanted it that way (which, at Apple was a valid reason. :)

comment What are the “spinning dots” in Windows supposed to represent, and why do they stop?
It's because the designer designed it that way.

comment Why are the “Undo” and “Redo” arrow icons commonly round?
In the context of your user's request, it actually doesn't matter why they're curved. Rather it matters that they are curved in nearly every other context. So for your buttons to have the same meaning, you likely want to match the accepted norm.

comment Hiding vs. disabling actions and show a message on mobile
I actually find the apple example a good example of why you SHOULDN'T disable at all. Apple has become less and less consistent with things like these over the years and that's not helping things either. That said, this is maybe a forgivable situation. And potentially one remedied through learning. But I'd still advocate that that ADD should be active and if you haven't filled in the correct fields, it tells you that when you try to tap it.

The catch is that disabling a control doesn't explain to the user why it's disabled.

comment Hiding vs. disabling actions and show a message on mobile
@castorda I don't know if there was general consensus formed on the answer you linked to. I would agree that in application menus it'd be acceptable as its become the norm, but in general I still want to see a good argument as to how disabling a control is better than leaving it active (but with a message) or just hiding it.

comment Types of questions to ask yourself when deciding if a company is a right fit
What I look for in a company is likely different than what you look for in a company. In other words, what would be a fit for you is really hard for us to say, as we're not you. :)

This question is pretty broad. What would be most effective for your needs would depend mostly on the specific needs of your users and the specifics of the UI that's being built.

comment How to indicate that something isn't to scale?
@sgryzko ah! That's some good info. If order is the key, I'd say focus on that. Look at things like the London Tube Map where scale is thrown out the window in exchange for clarity of order. Then, instead of the numbers, I'd simply state "not to scale" clearly. The numbers perhaps are adding more clutter than helping.

comment How to indicate that something isn't to scale?
But, beyond that, I'd ask, what is the problem you are trying to solve here. I understand the scale issue, but what's the larger problem. What, specifically, are you trying to communicate to the end-user? Are the specific numbers what's important? The order they come in? Both? Neither?

comment How to indicate that something isn't to scale?
You state that 'zig-zags' (which, btw, are called break points) would clutter things up because you use them everywhere would lead me to the conclusion that a linear graph is simply the wrong tool to be using in the first place.

As great as knobs are in the physical world, they can be a real pain to use in the virtual world.
