comment Does Unisex gender need to include in form?
what is the next process? Understanding that may help in understanding what to do with this particular field.

comment Does Unisex gender need to include in form?
"unisex" is a type of clothing, not a gender identity. As for the UX part of this question, I'd first ask why you need gender information in the first place.

comment For help desk feedback, what's the best Yes/No question to ask?
+1 for pointing out 'yes vs. no' isn't much of a metric. :)

Oh! This is a good answer. I didn't make the Visio connection when I read the question. Yes, this is a perfect description of 'flow chart connector' handles and why they are the way they are.

comment Why aren't HTML5 typed number inputs right aligned, and should they be?
Good visuals. Though note the left example has decimals. At least on the web, this is still kind of a pain whether left or right aligned (though some JavaScript solutions exist). There is a specification for being able to align decimals, but no browser support yet: css-tricks.com/almanac/properties/t/text-align

@bjb568 while true, I'd argue there's better ways to give a visual cue that the field is only for numbers, but I digress...that's really a whole other topic...

#2 is a good concern, though likely remedied with some thoughtful CSS. (I actually find the up/down arrows a bigger issue...I've never found those to be particularly useful UI element.)

From a UX POV, I'm not sure going from one checkbox to a dozen is an improvement. However, the idea of bullet-pointing the actual agreement is a good idea.

comment What is the resistance or usability considerations for new or interactive inline text behaviours?
It appears quite impractical as it requires either extreme double spacing of text or a lot of text-reflow as you go. It also means that--at least on desktop--people now have to deal with two separate menus (one for spellcheck, one for contextual options)

comment Using an image for a website background, and implications of changing screen size
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is more about graphic design and implementation than it is about UX.

comment With 2 types of users: should I provide 2 separate forms or use the same one for both?
It depends on the form and the users.

comment Flat design worsens UX. Could/should the pendulum swing the other way?
I do agree completely with your first paragraph edit, though. Good points!

@AditGupta the point is if the sample is only minimal web sites, then that's not data one can use to prove there's a trend one way or the other. In other words, the sample data set doesn't validate the statement about the trend not going away.
