comment Checkboxes - Is better to check exceptions or to uncheck exceptions?
The logic would be the same, but the outcome reversed in that they'd have to check the features they want to turn off.

Unfortunately, we often have to deal with unfriendly business logic. :/

comment Checkboxes - Is better to check exceptions or to uncheck exceptions?
The answer is really "it depends". But I think there's a bigger question here: if the software is easier to use with fewer options, then why are you turning all the options on by default? I

comment Checkboxes - Is better to check exceptions or to uncheck exceptions?
It's a ridiculous answer with a lot of truth in it. I think the serious take-away from this answer is "Really think about the options and cull it down to the absolute minimum of options whenever possible...and then pick the defaults for them."

comment Is it mandatory create new Android apps in Material Design only?
They are guidelines, not laws. Following UI guidelines is good, but if you have good reasons to veer from them, no one is going to fine you.

comment Splitting page layout
Why are you redirecting at all? Let people get to whatever page they were going to without a redirect. If people don't know what the site is for, that's a broader branding/graphic design/content issue that needs to be resolved.

comment UX principles for maximizing web page visibility at a distance?
I'd suggest a variety of things: go with a dark background, lose the chart junk, bold type, bigger type, etc.

comment How much is too much when it comes to letting the user know what page they are on?
What problem do you feel the breadcrumbs are solving? Does the tree menu solve the same problem? If so, you probably don't need the breadcrumbs.

Given the left menu is a tree menu, is there really a need for breadcrumbs? A tree menu is, essentially, vertical breadcrumbs

comment Why do browsers use white text on a blue background for highlighted areas?
I doubt dyslexia was part of the criteria. After all, you're highlighting something typically after you've already read it. While there may have been very specific rationale, keep in mind that just as often, it's just a pure subjective aesthetic decision made by someone back in the day that we've kept using out of habit.

No idea if it's true, but certainly a plausible theory!

But it's a highlight color. All that is important is that it's different than the non-highlighted text. As such, colorblindness isn't an issue in this context.

comment How can a very long (100+) breadcrumb trail be made usable?
@arthur.00 I think that's a great idea!

comment How can a very long (100+) breadcrumb trail be made usable?
I'd rethink the feature to begin with. The idea of going back 100 steps to choose a different path sounds appealing, but is it really? Would users actually want to do that?

comment How to track and report UX changes to a website
@DLM we've had this issue where I work. We're finally trying to resolve it by switching to Agile. Not convinced it will work for us, but it's so much better than trying to maintain monolithic change documentation.

@AlbertLang that's for prototyping fake sites, not updating actual sites.

comment Why do showers have “hot” and “cold” knobs rather than “temperature” and “quantity” knobs?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because like many 'object' questions on here it's not about UX but much broader product issues (cost, manufacturing, history, etc.)

comment Justification for Page Titles
that, unfortunately, is a toxic work environment. So, I sympathize. There are organizations that believe that UX is pure science and that only data can make decisions. If you need actual documentation, you probably need to look at 'web content strategy'. There's several books out there on the topic.

comment Justification for Page Titles
Well, the primary justification for page titles is wayfinding. It let's the user know where they are. Your developer's opinions don't make much sense. It'd be like a bookstore without any of the books having titles on the cover.

comment Justification for Page Titles
By page title, do you mean the title tag in the HTML or are you talking about on-page content such as an h1?
