comment How patient are users at wait dialogs?
That will also depend upon how attractive/interesting/reliable/visible/clear that waiting indicator is! ;)

comment Large set of options in a dropdown
@wcdomy - They are supposed to work in tandem. It can be of great help if user doesn't remember a word like "maserati" and type in just "mas" or navigate using the bottom provided links by clicking "m", "ma", and then "mas" to find "maserati" eventually. He may not remember the word absolutely, but when he sees a limited list showing him the only available options, he will be sure of where he is going.

comment What's the best way to conduct user research at a trade show?
Tell them 5 and take their 15 minutes? ;) and perhaps make those 5 minutes the most interesting ones so that they lose track of time! :)

comment How to best indicate navigation menu on mobile
I like 3 dots better than 3 lines as they are less intrusive and take up less space on screen, but again, they are small and have a smaller hit area and users' eyes can easily miss them or mis-hit them!

comment Prefer buttons over text links when designing for mobile?
But text can also be a "button"!! :) And moreover, size of the text-button is not a problem if the whole interface is basically typography based and there are sufficiently big hit areas defined for the text-buttons! :)

comment Equal Opportunities Button
If it is "required by law", one would wonder you will need to use the terminology used by "law" in this context.

comment Should I Put a Phone Number in the Header?
as @msanford said, try to elaborate a bit here. If that number is core to your business or website and is a primary means of communication with users, you may want to do it. It depends a lot on the context.

comment Is usability gender specific?
Its more of a comment than an "answer". Please limit such comments to comments section.

comment What happened to “What's this?” help?
@kuntur - I believe it was a wonderful tool for beginners! I didn't notice it because I am a pretty advanced user (at least I think so) and used to Windows interface. I still remember seeing it in Windows Me and in fact using it!

comment How do you recruit users for usability evaluation?
Although the question in itself is good, I have no idea why would anyone hire random people, which you have given as one of your options. It could have been phrased differently.

comment Footers on Website with infinite scroll
I think this question can be tweaked by OP to may be try and find out the reasons behind such big websites not implementing floating footer concept. And I don't seem to agree that it is a duplicate of the question referenced above. It could be termed as "Also See" but definitely not a "duplicate". OP's question intends to discuss "floating footers' practicability and application in current mobile world" and not "how floating footers can be implemented and the mechanisms behind it". I rest my case.

comment How to give users feedback about rejected input?
@fredley - And you do have a help section? or a startup screen? Alternatively, you could try to gauge the efficiency of users to take good photos by using some algorithm and then suggest them more ways to take good photos by pinging them subtly/nicely about it. People who consistently take good photos may not see those help pings!

comment How to give users feedback about rejected input?
So the control of "focus" is on the app and not in the user's hands, as far as I can understand. And if that is so, is there a sure shot way which you can suggest to users for using that aspect of your app, so that they don't fail much? And if there is one, then accommodate a description to that way in the most user friendly way in help section!
