comment Innovative search filter design needed
This is impossible to answer without a full understanding of what you are filtering and what the user's needs are. as it stands, this is just a brainstorming question.

comment When should I use a condensed font?
Please don't cross post. Flag the question and ask for it to be migrated. There's so much overlap between UX and GD that having questions cross posted between the two can be rather annoying--especially when both remain open.

comment Which is the landing page and which is the homepage?
@VilleNiemi no offense or anything taken! Just like to try and improve my answers when I can. That said, I'm also a fan of short-and-to-the-point. I'm not convinced this question needs a long answer. :)

comment Online courses: Open structure versus Closed structure
To me, the main advantage of online coursework is that, if I choose to do so, I can follow it in a non-linear fashion.

comment Is marketing the closest career to UX?
Sadly, I'd say few organizations even realize UX is there to impact business and marketing goals. Often UX is simply 'that group that draws pictures to show the developers over seas where I want them to put the button'. :)

comment Best way to verify Email/Mobile
After a person validates their email, there should be a link on this 'dead tab' page to let them go log in.

I guess I don't understand what you mean by 'dead tab'. What makes it 'dead'?

Also, a 10 minute time limit seems very heavy handed, though maybe it's necessary for your situation.

Explain the 'dead tab'. Why is that? Does your software not support running in multiple tabs?

comment Hyperlinks replacing buttons for desktop software UI's?
I think those are valid concerns--but not necessarily solved by buttons vs links. One could argue that on a busy app like the stock app that strong visual contrast between options beyond color, alone, is also very important. i just think it's an oversimplification to imply 'pro' = button. There are many other key factors.

Good improvements, though I'm not convinced there's a pro/consumer split here. The Amazon example is great...but isn't really an example of consumer vs. pro, but rather simply emphasizing a primary action vs secondary actions--which could be equally useful in an 'expert' UI as well (in fact, that second example is rather cluttered with too many buttons, IMHO. It could stand to have some of the secondary tasks visualized more as hyperlinks.

+1 for testing. That's the issue here more than anything else.

comment Hyperlinks replacing buttons for desktop software UI's?
I agree with a lot of this, but much of it seems highly dependent on implementation. For example, buttons aren't necessarily any more/less accurate than a link. It's all in the implementation. I don't now if I understand your 'buttons are for experts, links for non-experts' logic, either.

I'd agree with this if this was several years ago, but I think today--especially on the web--that mental model isn't rigid at all anymore. Buttons and links are now used interchangeably in a lot of situations.

I mostly agree, though the reality is that UX teams do have to deal with what is 'with it' quite often as well. Like it or not, we often are dictated by marketing trends as much a business objectives (which, granted, are often marketing related to begin with)

comment What kind of people are unable to use mouse and how many are out there on avg.?
@Alph.Dev note that interactions that REQUIRE a mouse...such as 'hover' should probably just be avoided anyways, as the world is increasingly becoming 'mousless'. (or perhaps not avoided, but just be made non-essential)

My standard is: make it look good. Then speed it up a bit more.
