comment Multi-threaded Instant Messenger UX Implications
Aren't all chat apps multi-threaded? You typically don't multi-thread with one person, though, as that would be rather bizarre, wouldn't it?

comment Clients and mockups
I think the answers given are all great and summarize down to this: Showing mockups is always a problem. Best to avoid them.

comment How to incrementally transition from large legacy system with poor UX?
Those are 3 excellent but very different questions. I suggest asking each of those as a separate question.

comment Adding a “none of the above” option to a list of checkboxes
@Izhaki I wouldn't call the recommendation idiotic. It's actually how radio buttons originally worked. It's just that with common usage in UI design, the omission of a default state is now common as well.

comment Adding a “none of the above” option to a list of checkboxes
This would be my recommendation as well. It's the least complex of all the solutions and does exactly what is needed.

comment Adding a “none of the above” option to a list of checkboxes
I think this is overcomplicating things a bit. Having to choose from two radio buttons a distance apart, along with the additional wording of them is adding necessary overhead, IMHO.

comment What do you do when the user interrupts the purchase process?
@JClaussFTW you should ask before saving--but should you save to begin with? I'd say if they are leaving on payment screen, they likely have good reason to and you asking to save their personal info might seem a tad over-the-top. But that's just a hunch/personal opinion.

comment Do material design's floating action buttons provide a bad UX?
If that's the biggest flaw, I'd say Google did good with Material Design. :)

Can you quote the particular guidelines you are having difficulties with?

Which one is 'better' depends entirely on what the problem is you are trying to solve.

comment Ways for a company to organize common/shared Icons Images and Graphics
"Corporate IT" and "Easy Way" are typically contradictory concepts. In the larger companies I've worked at, the 'easy way' is to go ad-hoc skunk works and do everything off the network via something like Google Drive. Obviously not the best solution for buy-in from the company as a whole.

Marketing is often diametrically opposed to UX. :)

comment Useful college minor for an aspiring UX Designer?
What's your major? In the end, if you're specifically wanting to get into UX, then you likely want to pursue a degree program with some direct bearing on that.

comment what happens when my vertical finger tab navigation is longer than my content area?
I'm thinking that if you have 50 tabs, you have a much bigger issue than the height of the content area.

comment How to let the user decide to keep the state of a site
@perry that's true...to an extent. There are memory limitations with local storage. But it may be a good option. The catch there, though, is if the data has to truly persist across devices (in which case you do want to sync directly with the server as much as you can).

comment How to let the user decide to keep the state of a site
Oh geez...I think you're right. I completely misread the question! Yes, your suggestion is spot-on (single page with AJAX)!

comment How to let the user decide to keep the state of a site
I understand AJAX. I'm not clear how that resolves the 'preserve state when user leaves page' issue.

comment How to let the user decide to keep the state of a site
AJAX is good, but I don't see how that solves the issue in the way you propose.
