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.

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)

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.
