comment Best way to allow entry of shop open hours
IMO this design would be better off with a single 24-hours timelline.

comment Where to undo “don't show this message again”?
Steve is right. There are occasions when the user will not want to be stopped by a repeating modal message, but might anyway want to see daid messages. The suggestion is, after the user opted not to be stopped each time, to stack said messages in a notification pane. IMO this pane might have a [stop] button for the user to recover control when needed.

comment OK/Cancel on left/right?
Sam has a point here (which I was about to raise): the question mentions 2 buttons, but there might be a single one, tha positive OK or accept or whatever action. The other actions, like [cancel] but also other options like [clear all] or [whatever] need not to be buttons, and they are better off being another kind of click target. In this case it might be helpful to display them as buttons on hover, in order to communicate the user their hierarchy, but this is not essential.

comment What is the best color combination for on screen reading?
"Legibility depends on high contrast" among other things. For not-so-youngs, black-on-white might be preferable because as the screen is more brilliant the eye pupils reduce their diameter, which makes easier to focus and cancels somewhat the presbyopia. What's the pilot's average age?

comment Why are CSS cursor types so rare on the web?
To show your user exotic cursor types you must first be sure that they already know them, else you don't. Thus, they don't see those fancy pointers and they don't learn them. You need somebody else to teach your users about them :-)

comment What is the best UI for multi-selecting from a list?
Programmers fancy this arrangement because it is featured in database column selection artifacts and the like, but IMO normal people don't know it.

comment What is the best UI for multi-selecting from a list?
There is another option: a list where each element is a label and bound to hidden checkbox. Clicking the label trips the checkbox and the label gets a "selected" style. With this arrangement you avoid the ugliness of the checkboxes and the unstability of the multiselect dropbox.

comment Best way to fit text in a limited amount space
Also, wrapping the header text allows for narrower columns meaning more columns visible at once, which is usually good for users working with tables like these of MrZander seem to be.

comment Does confirmation dialog need a close ('X') button?
Things have been said about the "importance" of the dialog. Importance, for whom? Albeit the site owner might care about the answer, there are also users who couldn't care less and would like to dismiss the modal dialog in an hygienic fashion and leave. A good approach is to use the [x] button, which is supposed to do nothing but clearing the dialog. IMO the button is the escape way for the non-committed.

comment Mobile Web: Remember Me Checkbox?
IMO it's a matter of security. If your cellphone was loaded with all your passwords (like, the banking one ...) and the cellphone is more exposed to theft or loss then it would be a real threat. The newer devices, with fingerprint readers might change the future of the mobile "remember me" thing.
