comment Whay are senior UX leaders/gurus like Don Norman and Alan Cooper not on this community?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because we can't speak for individuals.

@Mayo is the web server also Jewish? :)

@Mayo that's silly! :)

comment How do you close a website for business?
You don't, as that'd be silly. Why would a web site need to "close"?

comment Where does user-testing happen in LeanUX/Agile?
@plainclothes what kind of artifact do you usually test with unmoderated testing?

comment Where does user-testing happen in LeanUX/Agile?
Ah, so that's interesting. Sounds like your testing artifacts are essentially "screen sharing" and your data is really just feedback rather than a scripted test. Is that correct? Do you fit these tests into the same sprint as dev, or is this outside of sprint work?

comment Where does user-testing happen in LeanUX/Agile?
I don't see anything specific here, though...which tends to be what I read elsewhere too. Do you do user testing the same sprint as development? How do you prep a prototype (even with something like Pop), schedule a test group, perform the moderated tests, and re-incorporate that in one sprint?

comment Should clicking on a playing video take the video to fullscreen?
No, nothing should go full screen without the user's consent. Yes, Facebook likely intentionally did that.

comment What are the barriers to developing a UX culture?
I'd say it's way too broad. The barriers to developing a UX culture tend to be deep and broad in a lot of organizations.

comment Number of items in skeleton loader
@NirSmadar note that facebook is doing this with an infinite list/scroll--which would be a bit different than a finite list of users.

comment The Profile Page at Work?
"they are recognizing the value of open individual knowledge sharing" = do you write brochures for Microsoft? :)

comment What is the best email address format for people with the same first and last name?
Not sure 'taxonomy' is the right term here. I think perhaps you mean 'format'?

comment How to design an app for multiple platforms, say iOS and Android?
Again, you don't need to. It depends on the app and the needs of the app.

There is no requirement that I know of that iOS have a back button.

comment Are these typical product pages distracting? (Aesthetics vs. UX balance)
I think that's a valid theory. It could be bloat, though it could be validated content as well. Regardless, I think #2 is where you really want to go given that you are a startup. Start with the MVP. Build up as you validate the need.

comment Are these typical product pages distracting? (Aesthetics vs. UX balance)
So, to answer the question directly: I don't know if Amazon's pages are distracting, but they are the way they are because they work for Amazon. If they were detrimentally distracting, then Amazon likely would have changed them.

@user3210476 it's be hard to give any specific list of pros/cons without a whole lot more context and details. That said, realize that there's a lot more to Amazon's UX than 'the look'. But also note that Amazon puts a ton of time and money into their UX.

comment How do blind people cook?
"sensors vibrate or make a sound when the heat is encountered" = I think you're over-engineering here.

comment What control should I use to indicate multi-select lists on iOS?
As an aside, these are essentially checkboxes. So they work well for this.

comment How do blind people cook?
@JackMaddington what does being able to see have to do with knowing when you can pick up a hot pot? Heat isn't visual on a pot. Whether one can see or not, they have the same challenge in figuring out if a pot is too hot to touch.
