comment Is a star rating more user-friendly and valuable than a simple up/down vote model?
...and continuing what @RedSirius said, you shouldn't use an average rating for comparing items in a 5-star system.

comment Is there a recommended and consistent way of adding social buttons?
"Is there a recommended and consistent way of adding social buttons?" It would seem that, according to Matt Mullenweg, the recommended way would be to avoid them.

comment How can I improve this large grid of checkboxes?
I would also recommend variation on the colors across rows (you'll probably want a pre-approved color palette) and the ability to sort or filter the people listed.

comment Should I use a dropdown with only one item if in future this control might have more options?
And even in your shoe example, the dropdown could still have options 5-14, but show all unavailable options as disabled to cue the user in that they might be available in the future.

comment A common and classic UX interview question
@DA01, that really depends on how the company is structured, but you're right in that this is very much related to managing a project or product for a business.

comment A common and classic UX interview question
One thing that's missed here is the opinions and feedback of the engineers/developers. It's possible that they may have some important information such as security requirements or implementation details that the new design doesn't account for. Understanding why they don't want to make a change goes a long way toward convincing them that a change is necessary.

comment A use case for popups?
While popups should be generally discouraged, popouts can be appropriate in certain circumstances. Gmail allows the user to pop out email and chat windows which can be helpful for users who do have the screen real estate to support multiple windows. JIRA uses a popup for a formatting help dialog which is useful to keep next to the editing screen when composing messages.
