comment How far should UX venture in graphic design territory?
DA01 - I was trying to convey that UX encompasses all aspects of design. If someone calls themselves a UX Designer, they should be familiar with all of those aspects. If they are a specialist, then they are a specialist. I agree with you that the team needs to be complete. @Okavango The biggest difference between CX and UX is CX is a customer and UX is a user. A customer implies they have purchased. CX is a subset of UX, in its broad definition.

This is similar to my thoughts. Visual Design is an aspect of UX. UX encompasses a lot of things. If you are a UX designer, then you should also be decent, at least, with visual design. Just being an information architect or interaction designer doesn't make you a UX designer.

comment Are there documented UX processes for dealing with full site redesigns in an Agile environment?
Although the name is a misnomer, "style guide driven development" is a term some use to describe this. Here's one presentation speakerdeck.com/mattfordham/styleguide-driven-development There was an article out a few months back about overhauling vs building new, but I can't remember the name. It cited a lot of sources. I should probably be writing my own stuff on this :)

comment What is the maximum recommended number of item to put in a drop down list?
It's important to note that the reasoning for the 7 +/- 2 bit is not strictly for data that is to be memorized - it also applies to data that will be scanned. When content has more elements than that, much of it will be missed when it gets scanned. So that general rule still applies. For example, if you provide users with a list of four, all three will most likely be read. If you provide them with 30, you'll be lucky to have three be read. Often the entire list is skipped. 7 +/- 2 still helps ensure content is absorbed and not ignored.

comment Is designing in photoshop a thing of the past?
I think it's actually easier to design full detailed buttons in CSS than in Photoshop. Photoshop doesn't even have an editable border radius. After the box is drawn, you have to redraw it to change its size and border radius. In CSS, it's a matter of just changing the attributes of the box. And it's easier to make global changes. Plus there's a good chance that detailed design will have to be converted to CSS anyway. And as I mentioned, years ago people said it took people too much effort to design in Photoshop - that it inhibited the design process.

revised What is the name of this UI message element/dialog?
Reverted title. Don't need help naming, want to know the name. Secondly, has nothing to do with hover.

comment What is the name of this UI message element/dialog?
I've found many other places where the element in my screenshot is indeed called a "pointer" or "feature pointer". Lots of close answers to this, but I'm marking this one as answered as it is the correct answer for the screenshot I provided.
