Gave you an upvote, that's pretty much what I've done in the past with some embellishments.

comment Why do Microwave oven UIs fail?
Yes, my combi microwave/grill/oven does 1,2,3,...9,10, 15, 20, ...Really frustrating for all the pre-made stuff that says heat for 12 or 14... I mention that half because it's bloody irritating and half because if designing a standard for microwaves, it needs to support microwave/oven/grill combos too.

comment Is it good practice to force users to give us their email address before showing them our site?
There are a lot of web sites that sell wine, I'll just go to one of the ones which doesn't treat me so contemptuously.

Conventionally it's three people for a user group icon.

comment Can I use “Prev” instead of “Previous” on a button?
Could you use "Last" instead? Don't if you use previous in other places, but just a thought. Also, keep both next and previous buttons the exact same size and use a narrower font for the word previous. It can look ok, it really depends.

comment Tooltip with copy to clipboard action
It depends how often the user is going to want to use that interaction as well. If you have to wait, even if it's like 1/2 of a second for the tooltip to appear, that becomes frustrating after a while, waiting for it so you can click.

That's the example I was thinking of (Office) +1 for you :)

comment Different look and feel between administration and end user experience?
Absolutely, I don't disagree, but at the same time, time and money are finite. I think it is safe to say you don't have infinite time. You actually need a target "ship date" to focus your attention on delivering something as opposed to not delivering anything because it is not currently "good enough". As a part time perfectionist I know all about that :)

comment Different look and feel between administration and end user experience?
Yes, focus on the goal. Ask does the UI achieve the goal making the best of the constraints (resources, time, money). And it's interesting you say modestly. If the application took feedback from 5 year old children on their dining experience, the difference could be dramatic (fewer dinosaurs in the admin module?). Because money and time are finite, and because everyone needs a textbox, it's useful to use the same text box "widget" but be able to present them differently (themes). With that technical ground work you can vary the presentation more easily.
