comment What's a good way to transfer a user from a mobile site to a desktop site?
@VitalyMijiritsky unfortunately, at that point, I don't think there is any good way to handle this. The email suggestion is the best that I can come up with so would agree with that answer. Alas, it's far from ideal in that you'll likely have a rather large drop off of users getting from mobile to the actual desktop demo.

comment Optimising urinal use
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about bathrooms.

Do we really need more bathroom questions on here? They were cute the first dozen times. Not so much anymore.

I think this is likely the most pragmatic solution. Alas, there's still the issue of the mobile person then checking their email via their mobile device (which I often do) so now said email is marked 'read' and will likely be ignored next time I log in via a desktop.

Context is everything, of course, and we don't know anything about this app, but in general to say 'adjusting it to a mobile device is meaningless' is a difficult thing for most UX folks to accept at face value. Can you provide us with any more details to provide a bit of context?

@VitalyMijiritsky but is it broken? Whether it is appropriate or not is one thing. But if it works, there's no reason to not let people view it if they desire to do so on their mobile device. If it's broken, then you're going to have to somehow convince them to visit your site again from a different device. To do that you may have to rely on email notification or the like. But there's a risk there...if they are already engaged via a mobile device, you really want to try and do everything you can from that particular device.

Is the main site broken on a mobile device? If not, let them go to it.

before deciding if it's the best way to show it, decide if it's even a useful feature for anyone.

comment Design: Custom code UI desgin Or Framework like Bootstrap, Foundation etc
This isn't a UX question. You should ask this on StackOverflow. As for your UI designers, I can't speak for them, but while they have a point that customizing frameworks can sometimes be a chore, so is writing a responsive grid layout from scratch.

comment Are italics on the web bad for accessibility?
@belacqua certainly not arguing. And defining terms is likely an ongoing challenge in the world of typography. I don't think people have agreed upon typographic terms and likely never will. They all tend to be fuzzy. :)

And also note the study studied 12 typefaces. There are thousands upon thousands of typefaces. So, it's hard to believe that the particularities of the 12 faces studies are necessarily universal truths that would apply to all typefaces.

@belacqua in traditional typography, italics isn't an effect -- it's a type of typeface. It was carefully designed to be readable. Granted, computers often use a 'fake' italics (automatically slanting the typeface) which is an effect...but not a true italics typeface.

Well put. The research in to 'best typeface for readability' are so few and far between, and those that exist relatively weak in terms of conclusions, one shouldn't put too much weight into them.

In addition, edeverett's answer points out some other valid concerns with this particular study.

That second quote isn't about italics, per se, but about low resolution screens, which the OP states (and I agree) is less of an issue with mobile as well as things like cleartype. As for the last quote, while serif monospace fonts might be great for a subset, they are likely a detriment for a larger subset. I'd be wary of making decisions solely on this limited research of dyslexia.

Not sure this is a UX question.

comment Best design for 'undo' in rich web apps?
Also, I don't think that's a very good article at all. It's based on some misconceptions. One, a web app shouldn't disrupt the back button. They often do, but that's do to bad software development--not any inherit limitation with the concept of a back button. Another is assuming 'back' is always an 'oops' decision. That's not true at all. For example, often a user goes back because they are done with whatever they were looking for and now are ready to go look for something else.
