comment Is it better to put the action in the href or in an onclick event?
I have to disagree. HTML belongs in .html files, CSS belongs in .css files, JavaScript belongs in JS files. You should not be adding inline event handlers at all, instead bind events from a JavaScript file, and leave the [href] as an actionable link.

@ChrisBurgess, have you used StackExchange's tagging field? Did it take you long to figure out?

comment Best UI to allow expert users to enter an ip address? (IPv4)
@ChrisBurgess, "Our primary target "user" is a small business IT administrator." I think an IT admin would be smart enough to figure it out.

comment Best UI to allow expert users to enter an ip address? (IPv4)
It's possible to separate fields but allow them to seem as though they were a single text field by reacting to arrow keys and backspace. The problem is that it's much easier to do it wrong than it is to get it right.

comment Computer login with password only, without username
With a username/password scheme you can only test one password against one account at any time. With a single password scheme, you'd be testing the same password against every account every time.

comment Why is Facebook using two Form styles in their homepage?
It looks as though you're using some sort of custom form theme, possibly as a browser extension. Not all of those styles are what facebook uses by default.

comment Should the order of add / edit / delete buttons be based on the frequency of their use?
The order should remain the same for consistency, but that doesn't mean the buttons themselves can't change. The quick example I threw together isn't particularly elegant, but it might be possible to design a system that tracks long-term usage so that the buttons a user uses most often are presented with the largest hit box.

comment Do user experience practitioners ever have to worry about code?
@JonW, counter to that point, if you know the limits, you can come up with creative solutions to get around them. If you pretend that there aren't limits then you're ignoring reality, if you abide by the limits then you're stuck at status quo.

comment Ratings: 3 stars vs 5 stars. Why 5?
I'd argue that the most common rating system is the ± system.

comment Why are progress bars horizontal?
It should be noted that numerous games break the trend by using custom animations that match the theme of the game.
