What do you mean by 'graceful degradation' in this context?

comment Do UI adjustments for people 45+ harm younger user UX?
To spin it a bit: Why would they harm younger users?

comment What is the best method for making mutiple wireframes derived from the same data?
There are many ways to brainstorm. This question seems pretty broad. It'd help to know why you are being asked to design 3 wireframes of the same data.

comment Alternative to power-hungry screen displays
@Frozendragon I agree, but not sure what you're asking for, then. Are you asking for something viable for your needs? If so, then we need to know your needs.

Why do you think it helps with SEO? What problem will breadcrumbs solve for your users?

Breadcrumbs don't increase the 'number of web pages'.

comment How to display information too long for a select box
The concern is that breaks the standard expectation of a drop down. This might be solvable via UI design, though.

comment Where do you put your UX and UI stories in your agile framework?
@JohnHatton I actually agree with that, though find that that only really works on small agile teams with more narrow focus. At a more enterprise level, I find that it's hard to combine both the 'what' and the 'how' in the same sprint a challenge.

comment If a user has created an account on my iOS app using Google, how should I handle their effort to also create an email account?
I guess I'm confused. How can they log in with an existing email that's already attached to a different login? Or is Facebook suggestion people be allowed to create multiple logins with the same email, but all accounts are merged into one? I think you are on the right track, though. If they try and make an account with their email that's already in use, simply say "this account is already in use via "google/facebook"...

comment Is multistability a good thing on a donut?
Well, I'd say it can also represent 'unused state'. But you are right, it could go on the used side as well. Point being, both colors have the same intensity right now. They both seem equal in meaning, when they really mean opposite (used vs. unused). Adding contrast either through value/intensity and/or darkness may help.

comment Is multistability a good thing on a donut?
Seems the interaction element here helps. The fact that one visually sees labels and highlights change should make it clearer as to what is what. That said, it seems that this donut represents a 'bucket' and how full it is. The 'empty space' green seems too emphasized. I'd consider changing the green to a light gray or very light pale green to help emphasize "empty space" (Disclaimer: I am also not a fan of donut charts!)

comment Multiple choice control for region (6 regions) and countries (all countries in the world)
Who's the target audience? I'd be more concerned that people aren't entirely clear on what countries are on what region (especially in areas that are 'fuzzy'...is Middle East Europe? Asia?

@user654227 they can't as then they'd have two accounts with the same email. So that's going to be an error situation. If their Google account is not the same as their custom login, then there's no conflict. As far as you are concerned, that's two different users.

As for b) that's a question entirely dependent on your code base. We can't answer that.

comment If a user has created an account on my iOS app using Google, how should I handle their effort to also create an email account?
It depends on specifics. Is the email address the username? If so, that needs to be unique. So they couldn't have two accounts with the same username in the first place.

comment Color palette for website I am working on
Context is important. Are we talking UI colors here, or general page design? If the latter, you may want to ask this on graphicdesign.se instead.

comment Is there any evidence-based study proving (or disproving) that “click here” in touch interfaces could lead to confusion for the user?
The question is slightly flawed in that it's not an issue of click vs. touch, but the idea that "interact with this item" is a bad way to phrase an action in the first place.

comment Progressive vs. Optimized jpegs
Progressive JPGs were kind of a thing during the dial-up era. They're likely still a good idea, but just haven't been used that much since then. BTW, I believe these concepts aren't mutually exclusive. A JPG can be both optimized and progressive. As for the user, I think they simply prefer whatever loads faster.

comment How to format a web page to reduce the need to horizontal scrolling?
The ideal way is mostly dependent on the specific of your data. We can probably safely say that a simple spreadsheet view is not the ideal way if reducing horizontal scrolling is key.
