comment How should long loading times be handled?
Scenario #2 is the best. Don't call it downloading the file. Instead, it's "Get a Report" or something similar. That way, the user can move on to other tasks without waiting for this one to finish up.

comment What is best practice for driving users to a web form?
I assume you're talking about a popup over the homepage. In that case, I think you need to find another option. (My rule of thumb is "No homepage popups, ever.") Instead, present compelling information on the home that will convince users that they want to fill out a form.

comment How to write text with only 5 buttons?
This looks similar to the Roku keyboard. I agree that this is the way to go, and I'll add that it's a huge pain in the neck, even for short text entries. So, @N Alex, pre-populate and auto-fill if you can.

comment UX vs Product Design, what's the difference?
Except that posting seems to involve more visual design and less user research than I'd expect in a UX position.

comment Visualising assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses - together
I would be careful about using 2D and 3D displays for 1D numbers. In your example, the 161.1B difference between assets and liabilities looks a lot bigger because you see them as a pie slices rather than lines. (The 3D example below is even more out of scale.) See this wikipedia article for details.

comment Would you hide prices for a B2B software on products' public site?
Yes, these are the reasons I see repeatedly. Also, sometimes a company handles sales only through their sales staff, not via an online checkout process. In some of these cases the purpose of the site is to show product details rather than prices.

comment Is the lack of interactive design in SLA a barrier to helping users to understand the information?
Apart from the legality, I love your solution. It would be great to see, at a glance, what the SLAs that I accept say.

comment Fling cells in table view
Netflix has a "Send to Top" icon on each item in your DVD Queue (desktop site). It's not flingable, but if it were, I'd be flinging DVDs all day. Looks like a fun interaction.

comment Identity Verification for Remote Usability Testing
A sub-optimal solution to this is to avoid letting legal know about this stuff.

comment Should I use a captcha in my sign up form?
The way I discuss this topic with clients: For every hurdle you put in the way of the user's task, you will lose some number of potential users/customers. How many are you willing to lose?

comment What perceptual mechanism governs this road indicator design?
"...the sign painted on the road (or lane marking) should not be used alone..." Indeed. Some parts of the world get snow on the ground.

That makes sense, Devin. Good technique.

comment Need Help Identifying Audience & User Motivations
That's a great Mentalfloss article. I'd recommend, though, finding actual users as subjects, rather than interviewing site owners. In my experience, clients are happy to tell you about their users, but actual user behaviors tend to be quite different from what you hear from clients.

comment How to display long lists of nested filters?
I like this better than your original. I usually try to avoid having scrollable bits within a (scrollable) page. Showing both levels of filter as drop-downs avoids that.

comment Is there a list of conventions and standards for notifications, warnings, and messages directed at the user?
I assume you did a "competitors'" audit so you've seen what everyone else is doing. ("Competitor" in quotes because you'll want to see what sites in general are doing, not just your direct competitors.)
