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)

comment Why do modern keyboards have Scroll Lock?
I don't recall the last time I saw a floppy drive on a machine.

comment What would be an appropriate visualization for the arabic language?
Another case to consider: Plenty of people are American and prefer to use a language other than English.

comment Is it better to center align section headings or left align?
@Pacerier because I see no benefit to doing it in the example that was given. Yes, centering is a way to make something stand out. As is increasing text size. As is choosing a particular typeface. As is using a bolder typeface. As is using color. All are valid options. Rarely do you need to use all the options.

comment What are the differences between desktop app UX vs Web App UX?
This question is simply too broad. The title (web vs. desktop) is also unrelated to the question you ask (ecommerce sales focus vs. specific user tasks).

comment Male Female Selection
@Hennes binary data means 'only two states'. For gender, there's no reason you CAN'T have more, but if we're only asking male vs. female, only 2 are needed.

comment What is more accurate “Click in the checkbox” or “Click on the checkbox”
@17of26 I don't know that it'd be incorrect. Just not the style that Windows prefers. When talking about web sites, we want to avoid OS-centric language anyways.

comment Should Portfolio Site Backgrounds Be Static?
we can't really answer this without context. Even then, it's mostly subjective opinion.

comment Comparing and merging user interface revisions from multiple people
@MichaelHogan there's a big difference between 'equivalent visual look' and 'equivalent UX'. Yes, there are multiple ways to come up with the same visual look--no, they won't necessarily produce an equivalent UX. This is an important distinction. Your idea about using diff tools is a good thought. But it's going to be really hard to do. As there are often good reasons to make something visually the same, yet coded in a different way. And vice versa. It's all about context and, unfortunately, diff tools have no care about the context.

comment UX Patterns for Multi-Monitor Thick Client Apps
I don't think it's so much that you design FOR multiple monitors, but you design the app so it doesn't INTERFERE with those that use multiple monitors.

comment Does my website still have to support Internet Explorer 8 and earlier?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is too localized. Whether to support a particular old browser has to be decided on a project by project basis based on target audience, technology, budget and a plethora of other factors.

comment Is there a comprehensive list of modern mobile UI/UX design patterns related to view navigation?
Comprehensive? That's a matter of opinion. But there are plenty of UI pattern libraries out there. Google 'mobile ui patterns' or 'mobile ux patters'

comment What are the best IxD/UI Pattern libraries?
@JonW we redirect some questions here as being duplicate. I think this is a question that should be reopened and made community wiki (my 2 cents)

comment Is designing in photoshop a thing of the past?
@VitalyMijiritsky yes, definitely good point. And even when designing in the browser, Photoshop is still heavily used. Just in a different way.

comment Is designing in photoshop a thing of the past?
I know it was said in jest, but typically, a desktop app offers a whole lot more control in terms of consistency that you don't typically get with web sites. As such, if you were to design in Photoshop, it would make a bit more sense to do so for desktop apps than web apps.

comment Is designing in photoshop a thing of the past?
Ha! Well, maybe. But I design in the browser all the time. Tools like Firebug or Chrome console means you actually can design directly in the browser if we want to pick nits. :) That said, the term 'designing in the browser' while perhaps technically debatable is the common term used to refer to 'designing with actual code/markup rather than photoshop'

comment Use one page design for website with a detailed “request a quote” form?
There's also no reason a OPW can't be SEO friendly either. In otherwords, it's all about the specifics of implementation--not the number of pages the site has.

comment Use one page design for website with a detailed “request a quote” form?
There's nothing more/less intuitive between one page site and a 100 page site. It's all in the design and implementation. Both can be good options.

comment Use one page design for website with a detailed “request a quote” form?
Again, what do you perceive is the benefit of a one page site? There's really no general way to answer this. It's all going to depend on the particularities of your site.
