comment Why do we say UX for User Experience rather than UE?
Is this really a UX question? Seems much more of an English.se question. :)

I agree with everything except for "e" being the same sound as the i in international

comment Are design frameworks, design guidelines and design languages essential for UX design work? If not, what is used instead?
Can you clarify "work separately with developers"? Do you mean work separately independent of each other?

comment Ideal breaks for long numbers?
@Supr for sure. Alas, we have no control over the back-end. We're strictly dealing with the data we get. :/

comment Ideal breaks for long numbers?
@JonW it's a record. You could call it the GUID but one that the user sees directly. If they call in to ask a question, they'd need to reference this number to look up the item. A user would likely see many of these (list of records). It's purely numeric (no alpha).

comment Can we use ghost button as drop down button?
There's no rule here. It's a visual design question that you have to answer in the context of your own particular site.

comment Remember the State of a Page when navigating to other pages?
@AlannaRose "Hod do I..." isn't really a UX question. I was answering it from a UX perspective (or at least trying to). But yes, cookies are a way around this (as I mentioned). Also, that was 4 years ago. These days, I'd concede that it's more common to expect certain sites to retain some level of 'stateness'.

comment Why do browsers use white text on a blue background for highlighted areas?
Probably not. I don't know the answer, but have a strong hunch it is "because someone on the OS UI team decided to make it that way"

I'm pretty sure this is an OS-level thing--not a browser implementation.

comment Why do speedometers (in the US, at least) go so high?
yes. Though I do worry about crossing over to the dark side (ie, marketing. :)

"that it's pointing up" doesn't seem any better/worse than it pointing in any other direction.

I like this answer but in terms of UX, this is almost black-hat patterns we're talking about.

None of these are really user experience reasons, though. (Granted, the question isn't all that UX related to begin with.)

The answer is: marketing (as such, this isn't really a UX question)

comment Best Practice Users and Businesses URLs
@AlGallaf we definitely want to help. It's just that I don't see a question in your post. Or what criteria you are using to judge which one to go with. Or what your user's needs are. Context is important.

comment Best Practice Users and Businesses URLs
What's the question? If it's which of those should you use, I don't think we can answer. It depends on your needs. Generally speaking, they're all fine, human-readable URLs.

comment lorem ipsum and mockups for personal projects
(All that said, I've never met a recruiter that I'd put much value in their opinion of my portfolio. Recruiters aren't there to necessarily judge your portfolio...they're there to get you the interview in front of someone else that will then judge your portfolio)

comment lorem ipsum and mockups for personal projects
@JonW in the context of 'selling a design' I don't know that it matters. Whether you're selling your skills for a job, or for a dollar, you need to sell them. While Voltspecter's answer is perhaps opinion, it is an opinion shared by a lot of people--myself included--based on experience.

comment lorem ipsum and mockups for personal projects
@JonW eh...semantics. In both cases you are 'selling your design' to someone. I agree with Voltspecter...Lorem Ipsum is something useful for design teams, but shouldn't be something seen outside the art room.

comment Is the OS and browser used important when taking a screenshot?
"is the OS/Browser combination I use to make the screenshot important?" = in the grand scheme of things, likely not. If it bothers you, use a different combo for each example.
