comment UX to consider on a business card design
@tillinberlin, when I get business cards that break too far from the norm, I throw them out. They're no longer meeting my needs as a user, which is typically to convey contact information and remind me of the person's name.

comment UX to consider on a business card design
@jkuss, QR codes convey data, and can be a quick way to import contact information, which is what would be appropriate on a business card. I'm not saying it's necessarily a good choice, but it isn't necessarily a bad choice either.

comment Non-technical term for AD Credential
I had to google what AD credentials were...and I'm a dev. I use a lot of TLAs in my job, which makes it easy to get them mixed up.

Modifying a query string is not "hacking", although it may be invalid input.

comment What is considered better UX - have tooltips on important features or provide a tour
I am reminded of the classic quote "UI is like a joke; if you have to explain it, it's not very good."

From the title alone I would say blue and brown, but as always, context matters.

comment Why should our website be made handicap accessible?
Ask your boss if he's ever walked up a wheelchair ramp. Implementing features for accessibility makes everyone's experience better, not just a small segment of the population.

comment Are breadcrumbs still in?
I know at least one large ecommerce platform that still uses a breadcrumb style approach. You might argue that they're search facets rather than breadcrumbs, however it's worth noting that you can't remove individual facets in this particular area of the UI.

comment What is the best way to show my users that buttons in the same line have different functionality?
That "valid cultural reference" you speak of is an example of actual radio buttons hence the name.

comment Why are messages on the road printed in reverse?
@LightnessRacesinOrbit, i've updated my answer to clarify my intent. It's not so much about seeing the text as being able to discern what it says.

comment Why are messages on the road printed in reverse?
@LightnessRacesinOrbit, if this message had a third line, do you really expect everyone to reasonably be able to read it?

comment When should a text input be auto selected?
Generally, selecting the text on click is used on readonly text fields meant for copying content. Consider the share field on this youtube video. It's obvious that the use case is to copy the text, so selecting all of it makes sense. It also happens that this behavior is trivial to add.
