comment Collapsible content vs. static text for FAQ/Information page
+1 very good solution, it actually stimulated me to update a FAQ section on one of my sites as well. I used a static only page which forced users to scroll far down to find an answer. Initially there were just 5 questions but by now the client has entered many. Clearly your solution is the better way.

comment Refresh button on a website
Yes I understand that, I was just saying that I couldn't come up with a use-case that justifies another refresh button, and the example that you give is in my opinion not justified either because technically that screen shouldn't exist. Perhaps your use-case in fact justifies a second refresh button. So that's why I say "it depends on the use-case". Can you describe your use-case a little better?

comment Refresh button on a website
I think it depends on the use-case in question and to be honest I couldn't come up with a use-case that justifies an additional 'refresh' button. Your example is IMHO a horrible piece of UI where I strongly believe that the session should have silently recovered itself and the application should have continued working.

comment Should we use a sound/jingle when users arrive on our site or open our app?
@JonW I must say that after your comment I looked for a more recent article by Jacob Nielsen but didn't find it. I noticed that in this article the result is not a result by a research of Nielsen himself but a response by a reader. Nielsen responds though that he agrees.

comment Should we use a sound/jingle when users arrive on our site or open our app?
The arguments given in the article regard the way the human hearing apparatus works and multi-user environments like workplaces. So if human ears still work the same way as 13 years ago and we still work with colleagues in the same room, I'd reckon the arguments still stand. Admittedly at that time "apps" weren't included in the article and one could perhaps getting away with playing a sound effect at the start of an app because they imply a different user experience by definition.
