comment Lesser technical term than hierarchy
I'd argue a tree structure is more technical of a term than hierarchy. (the former being mostly a UI term, the latter a more general term)

comment Lesser technical term than hierarchy
Context will be key here, but in general, I don't know that 'hierarchy' would be seen as 'technical' at all. It's a not uncommon word.

comment Preference of paper prototypes over paper-in-screen prototypes
While I don't entirely disagree with this, I will say that suitability of a prototype has more to do with how it's being tested and presented to the users. In otherwords, any fidelity should be testable. You may just have to test it differently depending on the fidelity.

comment What's the design pattern at the end of infinite scroll?
if there's an end, it's not infinite... :)

comment What makes this POS design look dated
It looks dated because it appears that no thought was put into the visual aspects of the UI design at all. There are definite UX problems as well, but in terms of why it "looks" dated, I'd suggest hiring a talented visual designer (be it a graphic designer or UI designer)

How does it look? Usually like crap. :)

comment Is copying other app's UI okay?
@bdsl in some ways, it's complicated, in other ways, it's incredibly simple: If someone feels you are infringing, they complain (either via informal methods such as 'report a violation' process in an app store, or formally via a lawsuit).

comment How to avoid 12:00 AM midnight/noon confusion in a time input field?
@PhillipW I notice that you're in the UK. It never occurred to me that 'noon' would be obscure. Looks like it's maybe an America-centric term?

comment How would you have avoided the Miss Universe 2015 mistake?
I'd have avoided it by cancelling the entire spectacle that is televised pageants.

comment How do I know if my site is not using material design?
In that case, you need to ask this question to the UX team you are working with, as the only answer that will matter is theirs if they are the ones 'certifying' it.

comment How do I know if my site is not using material design?
From a UX perspective, I'd ask "why does it matter?". From a technical perspective, there is no officiating body to grant your app any sort of official material design status. Whether an app is considered 'material design' is going to be as much about subjective opinions as it is objective.

comment How do I know if my site is not using material design?
I didn't downvote, but it look like people are thinking this is just too broad. I tend to agree. There really aren't a list of "don'ts" for Material Design. It's just a set of guidelines that you should be free to use as you see fit.

comment Should I use initial pop-ups that cover the entire screen for advertising?
Users hate ads. The UX answer will always be: no.

comment How do I know if my site is not using material design?
ux teams most definitely do NOT make material design a priority. It's an option, but not in anyway better or worse than a multitude of other options. As for 'material design certification' I don't know who would do that or what value that would even bring to the users of your site.

comment How do we go about designing for Touch based desktops & normal desktops?
@gurvinder372 If you're saying one has to hold a laptop while using it, then yes, that makes sense...one hand operation. That said, holding and using a touch based laptop would be really annoying...after all, that's what tablets are for.

comment How do we go about designing for Touch based desktops & normal desktops?
I'm confused about #2...why would standing affect which hand one can use?

comment Whay are senior UX leaders/gurus like Don Norman and Alan Cooper not on this community?
@AmitJain note that the 'hot questions' aren't usually 'good questions'.

comment How do you close a website for business?
@guest, can you provide us with some context here? Why doesn't your boss want the site to be open during non-brick-and-mortar hours?

comment How do you close a website for business?
@guest then it's ultimately not a UX question, but a 'what the boss wants' solution.
