comment Should you use hamburger / hidden navigation on larger desktop sized screens?
Yet it's something that's becoming increasingly common. So I think this may be a situation where implementation will eventually trump the concerns. The big one right now is discoverability but more and more people know what a hamburger menu is. I think over time, the discoverability issues of a hamburger menu becomes less and less of a concern.

comment Is product material in a category or product title unnecessary
It depends, do users typically make buying decisions on a tub being fiberglass vs. acrylic? Regardless, I agree, usage is perhaps the best way to categorize, and material is a good way to filter/tag.

comment Upper Limit of Items for a Browse Experience
To me, that sounds like you have an audience that is very intent on finding what they want, which I think allows you to err on the side of 'more' than 'less'. So I think that's beneficial. I wonder if you could borrow heavily from Amazon? Their filtering system works well, and this might be a place where "users also viewed..." to surface related degrees and programs.

comment What's the maximum number of individuals registered to one UK postcode?
Define 'postcode'. It appears to be like a ZIP code that some commonwealth nations use? Regardless, this question seems unanswerable short of being able to ask your nation's postal service do do a query on their own database.

comment Upper Limit of Items for a Browse Experience
As for what an upper limit would be, I think it's entirely dependent on the user and how intent they are in finding what they are looking for.

comment Upper Limit of Items for a Browse Experience
I'm not sure people 'browse' degrees in the first place. Maybe some research should be done before hand. From my past experience, picking a degree often comes with 'interest surveys' and the like. Not sure if they are valid at all, only that's what I've seen in the past.

(Also, this is more of a Graphic Design question than UX)

As always, context is everything. The answer to this depends on the specifics of your needs/goals.

comment Why is sugar not in a shaker?
@KennethK. yes, but this site is about user experience design. In other words, ideally questions here would relate to conscience design decisions that affect the UX. Many of these "why is x the way it is" have little-to-nothing to do with any design thinking that when into the product's development. Often they are due to other factors--often including a complete lack of design thinking.

comment Most efficient way for users to accept terms when registering?
Well, a TOS is a legal contract. So you likely shouldn't be using one unless you are fully aware of the legal ramifications of what is in it. To answer your specific question, I'd say: If the TOS are relatively benign, use just text. If the TOS is complex and has real ramifications for the end users, make sure you encourage them to read them in any way you can and a checkbox (opt-in) would help with that.

If you have a TOS on your site, you should have a stance on it. Do you have a lawyer helping with the TOS? What is the TOS? Context is going to be really important here.

comment The use of false counters/statistics on webpages
This is more about black hat marketing than UX.

comment Most efficient way for users to accept terms when registering?
This is actually a legal question (opt in vs. opt out). Your client/company may already have a stance on this.

comment Why is sugar not in a shaker?
@JonasDralle I have no issues with physical questions. That's not the problem. The problem is that "Why is product X the way it is?" rarely has to do with UX design. It's usually business/economics/habit/etc. The problem is that these get upvoted way more than actual UX questions, which really is misleading for people not familiar with this site.

comment What is the best way to implement tags?
There is no 'best' way. Some may be better than others, but it all depends on your UI and your users as to what works best for you.

comment Why is sugar not in a shaker?
@SirPython there may be a misconception that why a particular product is the way it is 100% because of UX Design. It's rarely because of UX Design. Often it's due to all sorts of other factors.

comment Shouldn't the logo be linked to the About page of a website?
The question Tohster linked to is pretty much the answer to this question.

I think this is really the only UX-centric answer here.

comment Why is sugar not in a shaker?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's not a UX question. Plus, the premise of the question is incorrect.

comment Is there a journal, dictionary or database of fonts and their established usage?
But note that that flow chart is talking about font visual styles--not any particular context that you'd use them in.
