comment Is there a recommended height for text fields on high density mobile screens (retina, etc)?
@myklee are you talking about a mobile web site? Yes, it does apply, but you also need to tell safari about the viewport settings: developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/AppleApplications/…

comment Is showing product price after registering bad UX?
I'd consider this similar to bait-and-switch techniques, which are never good UX.

comment Four states, one checkbox - any way for it to make sense?
@Izhaki radio buttons aren't for multiple choice, checkboxes are.

comment How to tell Facebook users don't be afraid to sign in?
For those that are concerned about this, the only real solution is to offer options other than Facebook sign in.

comment Is there really a content strategy just for mobile?
While it may be easier to consume said content on your laptop, there's no good argument to prevent people from getting to it on any device. In fact, the biggest argument for allowing it is that more and more people are accessing the web only through mobile devices.

I like this idea, though it's sometimes frustrating to have to give an answer to something you truly are ambivalent about. And I think, at times, it's good to know which features/products your users are ambivalent about.

I agree with this but would argue that 3 points is typically enough. Like, neutral, dislike.

comment How is it called when you have 2 links that lead to the same page?
Generally, this is simply how hypertext works. There's no real rule as to what links to what or how many links link to what. UX-wise, I'm not sure there's a particular name other than it's perhaps a couple of feature call-outs (that just happen to link to the same page). Of course, I'd question the need for the separate page. Why not just call out the two features on the landing page itself?

comment Why do websites disallow the plus sign in e-mails
Well, 'properly' means different things. I agree, from a UX perspective, neutral analysis is ideal. Alas, I've seen user data used as much to defend business's personal preferences. :/

There is no 'best' here. It all comes down to your particular implementation of these and how it fits with your particular content and reader's needs.

While I always prefer data over personal preference, it should be noted that data can lie as much as personal preference can. (lies, damn lies and statistics...)

comment Should ergonomics be added to password strength meters?
users don't like entering the same data twice. Any one slightly skilled with a computer just cuts-and-pastes into each field anyways, therefor bypassing the purpose of asking multiple times. You could block pasting, but now you're just annoying those skilled users.

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.

comment What's a good way to transfer a user from a mobile site to a desktop site?
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.

comment What's a good way to transfer a user from a mobile site to a desktop site?
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?

comment What's a good way to transfer a user from a mobile site to a desktop site?
@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.
