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.

comment Useful college minor for an aspiring UX Designer?
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).

Oh geez...I think you're right. I completely misread the question! Yes, your suggestion is spot-on (single page with AJAX)!

I understand AJAX. I'm not clear how that resolves the 'preserve state when user leaves page' issue.

AJAX is good, but I don't see how that solves the issue in the way you propose.

This isn't always viable on mobile, where you tend to be severely limited by network speeds and the like. Having to download the entire app as one page can add frustrations when on mobile.

comment Why is it called the fold?
@harbichidian there is no fold. So, there may be no side content below the fold on your particular computer screen, but there's plenty on mine. That's one of the points they're trying to make.

comment What percentage of Internet keyboard users are hunt-and-peck typers?
Well, that's actually not a bad idea. Maybe add it is a survey to your site?

I have no idea how they'd even come up with that statistic.

So, in other words, it's not a relative term at all for UX on the web.

It should also be noted that 'the fold'--as being an issue on the web--is a myth: boxesandarrows.com/blasting-the-myth-of-the-fold cxpartners.co.uk/cxblog/… uxmyths.com/post/654047943/myth-people-dont-scroll

comment Why say “verify you're a human” when only humans can read it?
"and are necessary" I agree with your post except for that. Captcha's are never necessary. They're just often the easiest solution for the developers.

I don't get the question. What does 'verify you are human' have to do with there being (or not being) a 3rd entity?

comment About fullscreen scrolling webpages
To be fair, that's not even truly navigation. It's really just a pagination tick...ala your iPhone screen. Is it useful? eh...it shows you how much scrolling you have to do. But it doesn't actually help you navigate. Which, again, isn't all bad as these one-page sites are really linear ads. Ads aren't the best UX, of course, but I suppose they have their places.

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. :)

What, exactly, is the problem? I'm not clear on that.
