comment Extroverts vs introverts - user profile design considerations?
I don't see a correlation between having conversations with people in person and UI design for said people.

@Mayo that's true, but then why mention them as two separate things? I, too, count 6 breakpoints, but really you need to ask the person that gave you the quote.

comment What is the best font for extremely limited space, i.e. will fit the most READABLE text in the smallest space?
(Actually, this specific question may not have been a hot-topic...just a popular old one...still, same issues...)

But do leave this answer. It's a good one. Don't be too discouraged by the down voters. They likely just aren't UX folks.

Dirk...this is a 'hot topic' question. Alas, a big problem with hot topic questions is a) the question is usually not that good--just popular and b) the people voting on answers are coming from other sites, so not actual subject matter experts. I think hot-topics are a problem on the SE sites. I opened up a META discussion regarding it: meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/288471/…

comment Font size in actual iOS differs from Photoshop mockup?
You could ask this on Graphic Design. But to answer your question, how PhotoShop spec's type in points is different than how a browser will do it. Never assume your Photoshop file will match code.

comment What's an excellent example of tips integrated on a web page?
Are you sure you even need these? I'm a big advocate of getting rid of tool-tips and the like altogether. Either fix the problem that requires the tooltip in the first place, or consider making the copy you see on the screen explain things better so that you don't need a secondary bit of content.

comment Online store, best way to display a shirt with front and back graphic
perhaps nod fiddly, but cumbersome if you're scanning a large selection of items. It lacks 'scanability'. (And gimmicks can be useful...sometimes it's the gimmick that provides delight. So they can work. I'd just consider them carefully)

comment How do I make a photo look like a checkbox?
The problem with hover is that it's non-existent on so many devices today. Do not rely on hover as your only bit of user feedback that it's selectable.

comment Readability of overlaid text on images
This is a graphic design question more than a UX question. I'd suggest it be migrated to GD. As for an answer to the question, asking if there is a consensus on a rather subjective topic is going to be tough.
