comment Traffic lights: “yellow” is progress, not state
@BaGi: When the traffic light means "don't start, do finish", the yellow light means don't panic (i.e. don't sudden break or speedup) if you're already in the intersection as you will have sufficient time to complete the intersection.

Do you have Google Analytics or other analytic tools on your website? If you don't, then you really should. Analytic tools helps you make informed decision about stuffs like this, and not rely on the general statistics from other websites, which vary widely.

comment So how big is the mouse pointer?
The physical size of a touchscreen controls do matter since you can't shrink down your fingers, however the physical size of the mouse pointer is not very relevant, as long as the pointer is not too small to be difficult to see, it will work well. Although one could argue that pointers that is too big will be aesthetically disturbing. A more useful comparison is the size of the actual mouse itself, it will depend on habit and hand size; I know people who preferred laptop mouse size since they have smaller hands while I'm most comfortable with the regular sized mouse.

comment All capital titles: good or bad?
@Jon Purdy: I somehow know what you wrote even before trying to unrevel this: I sternly don't cxxxxxxxxxxxg sxxxxxxxg revealing particularly zero letters (containing not nearly the same information) is so sparse. If your centerline is true, then this context ought to pose you no difficulty.

comment No output vs slightly wrong output
I'm confused, what are you displaying in the caption if it is neither the GPS location nor human readable location name?

comment No output vs slightly wrong output
why have a caption that says the GPS coordinate? I would recommend geocoding it into human readable names, therefore exact GPS position wouldn't be strictly necessary and you can use heuristic to determine -- by the accuracy -- whether to display precise location name or broad location name.

comment All capital titles: good or bad?
-1. Everyone would unanimously agree all caps in body is bad. However, the OP specifically asks about all caps in title. AFAIK there is no (widely known?) research about the use of all caps for heading or menu text, on which all caps may perhaps be validly used to grab attention.

@Matt: although the carousel in the camvine.com site do look cheap and unprofessional, IMHO.

comment Should menu items be listed alphabetically or in order of most common use?
adaptive menu that sorts itself by usage could still be used in addition to static menu or a shortcut to the last used menus (e.g. Windows' Start menu). Just make sure that the dynamic part of the menu is idempotent (i.e. opening an item in the menu wouldn't cause an irreversible actions)

comment Are these religious icons clear enough without supplementary labels?
while this question is about choosing color and iconography rather than design, I would recommend you should find a proper graphic designer to refine the icons so they look more pleasing to the eye; these icons and menu bar -- as it stands now -- looks like they come straight from the early 1990s. While they're OK for scrap work, IMO they aren't good enough for a final product.

comment Does changing behaviour of a link depending on which mouse button is clicked affects usability?
+1 for middle click, that's the primary way of opening new tabs, don't ever open a new tab for me, let me decide if I want a new tab or not by middle click. But -1 because that hover idea is horrible. So +0.

comment How to accomodate a large set of filter controls horizontally on a page?
@Kartik G: the most common filter is usually a no-brainer uber-textbox that will search on all criterias, like Google search. For the common case, the user shouldn't need to think which filter they should use.
