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 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.

comment Will using “X” for both “close” and “remove” cause confusion
do you have any evidence that the x's are confusing? The comp shown uses proximity well that I can't imagine it would be an issue.

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.
