comment About fullscreen scrolling webpages
"Any thoughts about this?" = alas, that's not a great question for this format. That said, note that most (if not all) of those examples are essentially ads. And ads can get away with being annoying if they draw the right kind of attention.

comment About fullscreen scrolling webpages
"Dots on the side, hovering shows the title of that page" = typically referred to as 'mystery meat' navigation and not usually ideal. Though Apple can get away with it for marketing sites. :)

comment Using radio buttons responsively
What, exactly, is the problem? I'm not clear on that.

comment What's the deal with the “Shake to send feedback” on Google Maps for Android?
We can't possibly answer this unless we work for Google. That said, one theory: when people are frustrated with a device, they often shake it.

comment Typography in landing page
This isn't a UX question. It' a graphic design question so should be asked there. And it needs a lot more context for it to produce truly helpful feedback.

comment How to allow for 'exploration' in your user testing?
Agreed. And I suppose the problem is simply having overly structured test scenarios. Alas, business often wants to test very specific things which can interfere the concept of 'play and figure it out.

comment How to allow for 'exploration' in your user testing?
@Izhaki oh, absolutely. That's a good point. Actually, that's probably a good answer: "questions should be task based". Alas, that's still somewhat of a problem it that there's still this mentality sometimes that the user is being tested rather than the app. :)

comment How to respond to “We already have a (non-UX) designer; don't bother us”?
It's hard to get companies WITH UX TEAMS to 'get' UX so I can only imagine how daunting it is to do this via cold calls. I wish you luck! :)

comment Does Computer mean Desktop and Laptops?
Mobile first. There's a reason for this. Well, many reasons. But a big one is that more and more people are now accessing the internet solely on mobile devices. I'd suggest that you're better off investing in making these forms less text-heavy and optimized for mobile. As a bonus, it makes them that much easier for those that do have keyboards as well.

comment General name for the website style that appears in wide pages
No particular name. Just a trend away from 'many short pages' to 'one long page with the sections clearly delineated visually.

comment Why Does Google's Material Design Not Use Proper Cursor?
Does Material Design even have disabled buttons? Those are usually a bad idea to begin with.

comment Which icons can best represent “portfolio”, “process”, “motivation”, and “reflection”?
@SeanC if this is a UX portfolio, I'd be wary of overly small navigational text (which is typically bad UX broadly speaking)

comment Which icons can best represent “portfolio”, “process”, “motivation”, and “reflection”?
This is really a graphic design question. That said, don't overthink icons, either. Icons are great for task-based navigation but it's hard to nail abstract things like 'thoughtful reflection' in an icon.

comment Client Lists on website - Best practice: hyperlink to client or static image?
Also, while there may be a definitive answer, it's most likely subjective, and in this case, highly dependent on the particular objective you're after.

comment Client Lists on website - Best practice: hyperlink to client or static image?
adding link shouldn't significantly add to the page weight. I'd included the links.

comment Which way do arrows point on a tabbed web page?
This is mostly a style issue. As long as the tab 'looks' active, it really doesn't matter.

comment WAI-ARIA & HTML5 - Why should I favor the latter?
@JitendraVyas no. I'm saying screen readers, like commercial browsers, tend to take time before they fully support new standards.

comment Should the volume be ON by default? ( for OUR type of Site )
(complete aside, your own video is fun, but are those all licensed clips? If not, you may be running into some legal issues...)

and if I have headphones on, I'm probably already listening to something else anyways. :)

comment Why don't ATMs show blank arrows for unused buttons?
This would help, but feels like a band-aid rather than fixing that actual UX issue (alignment)
