comment How to allow for 'exploration' in your user testing?
Agreed. And I suppose the problem is simply having overly structured test scenarios. Alas, business often wants to test very specific things which can interfere the concept of 'play and figure it out.

comment How to allow for 'exploration' in your user testing?
@Izhaki oh, absolutely. That's a good point. Actually, that's probably a good answer: "questions should be task based". Alas, that's still somewhat of a problem it that there's still this mentality sometimes that the user is being tested rather than the app. :)

comment How to respond to “We already have a (non-UX) designer; don't bother us”?
It's hard to get companies WITH UX TEAMS to 'get' UX so I can only imagine how daunting it is to do this via cold calls. I wish you luck! :)

comment Does Computer mean Desktop and Laptops?
Mobile first. There's a reason for this. Well, many reasons. But a big one is that more and more people are now accessing the internet solely on mobile devices. I'd suggest that you're better off investing in making these forms less text-heavy and optimized for mobile. As a bonus, it makes them that much easier for those that do have keyboards as well.

comment General name for the website style that appears in wide pages
No particular name. Just a trend away from 'many short pages' to 'one long page with the sections clearly delineated visually.

comment Why Does Google's Material Design Not Use Proper Cursor?
Does Material Design even have disabled buttons? Those are usually a bad idea to begin with.

comment Which icons can best represent “portfolio”, “process”, “motivation”, and “reflection”?
@SeanC if this is a UX portfolio, I'd be wary of overly small navigational text (which is typically bad UX broadly speaking)

comment Which icons can best represent “portfolio”, “process”, “motivation”, and “reflection”?
This is really a graphic design question. That said, don't overthink icons, either. Icons are great for task-based navigation but it's hard to nail abstract things like 'thoughtful reflection' in an icon.

comment Client Lists on website - Best practice: hyperlink to client or static image?
Also, while there may be a definitive answer, it's most likely subjective, and in this case, highly dependent on the particular objective you're after.

comment Client Lists on website - Best practice: hyperlink to client or static image?
adding link shouldn't significantly add to the page weight. I'd included the links.

comment Which way do arrows point on a tabbed web page?
This is mostly a style issue. As long as the tab 'looks' active, it really doesn't matter.

comment WAI-ARIA & HTML5 - Why should I favor the latter?
@JitendraVyas no. I'm saying screen readers, like commercial browsers, tend to take time before they fully support new standards.

comment Should the volume be ON by default? ( for OUR type of Site )
(complete aside, your own video is fun, but are those all licensed clips? If not, you may be running into some legal issues...)

and if I have headphones on, I'm probably already listening to something else anyways. :)

comment Why don't ATMs show blank arrows for unused buttons?
This would help, but feels like a band-aid rather than fixing that actual UX issue (alignment)

comment Why do modern keyboards have Scroll Lock?
I don't recall the last time I saw a floppy drive on a machine.

comment What would be an appropriate visualization for the arabic language?
Another case to consider: Plenty of people are American and prefer to use a language other than English.

comment Is it better to center align section headings or left align?
@Pacerier because I see no benefit to doing it in the example that was given. Yes, centering is a way to make something stand out. As is increasing text size. As is choosing a particular typeface. As is using a bolder typeface. As is using color. All are valid options. Rarely do you need to use all the options.

comment What are the differences between desktop app UX vs Web App UX?
This question is simply too broad. The title (web vs. desktop) is also unrelated to the question you ask (ecommerce sales focus vs. specific user tasks).
