comment Clicking twice to edit filename - what are the reasons for this pattern?
I used F2 for renames, it's much faster because you don't have to wait for the second click.

comment Why don't most forms have a hover state?
Because it's annoying. Most major OSes on major browse highlights the "active" form element because you usually only click form element that you want to interact with. With hover, it's not necessarily true that I'm interested in the form element where my mouse is.

comment All my users are from Afghanistan; or, how to get users to correctly fill out a form
@Nrgdallas: telling the user that you're geolocating by IP Address is IMO not more evil than not telling that your server log contains IP address or using some Analytics service, which almost every site does.

comment Should we use a sound/jingle when users arrive on our site or open our app?
Skype's startup sound IS annoying AND intrusive. And worse, there is no option to turn it off in the mobile client. There's a reason I get nervous every single time I need to start Skype.

comment Why do users erase all the password when they hit one wrong key, instead of just the last wrong character?
another issue is that if you have a long password, then you really don't want to waste your time counting all those stars, only to count it wrong and have to retype everything again anyway.

comment Is it good practice to force users to give us their email address before showing them our site?
selling boutique wines to high-end clients that would only work if you already had a credibility to do it, or you are confident you can build that credibility.

comment Why does ux.stackexchange.com use a darker colour to indicate visited links?
IMO the lighter color are easier to miss, especially since ignored tags are supposedly shaded in lighter color.
