comment 'Open' signs on commercial buildings - why are most of them red?
Oh for heaven's sake. How is this question any more opinion based than something like this question: ux.stackexchange.com/questions/24255/… With regards to cross posting, I originally posted here but somebody advised me (rightly) that I would get a better response elsewhere. Quite frankly, I think that advice stands for any question on this particular section of Stack Exchange because it seems to be extremely over-policed and anything but a shining example of what a good user experience should be.

Well it certainly couldn't fare much worse. I had my office in stiches this morning when they asked how I had got on in my investigation.

comment 'Open' signs on commercial buildings - why are most of them red?
Brandon, you are quite right. If you google "open sign" and look at the images, you will see that the most common colour is red. The green ones you see tend to be signs instructing you to push to open. The most common sign for open for business is red. I really don't see how I can be any clearer than that.

I've made the question clearer and added an example. How do I flag this as no longer being on hold?

comment I bought lean ux and ux for lean startups. The diagrams in both books are similar. What is the software used to generate the diagrams?
Have you tried asking the authors? They normally have contact information somewhere in the literature.

comment Infinite scroll vs Pagination in E-commerce websites
Perhaps you should check. I just did and they definitely have pagination now. You can select from either 25 or 50 items per page.

comment What explains the current shift from glossy UIs to matte UIs?
Well, a lot of web sites are also all about BANG! and grabbing the customer. Those flat designs in that showcase site all strike me as fairly uniform and dull; generic bootstrap clones.

comment Do I really need a login button?
I know this was posted three years ago, but it you are still puzzled how it was done Tomas, I would guess that the application was checking to see if the browser being used was from the local network (it would have an IP address in a specific range). From a security point of view this is pretty poor, but I agree it sure would be convenient if we didn't have to log onto our local browser-based apps.

comment Navigation Design for GoogleTV
From that link: TVs are always in "landscape". On a TV, available space runs left-to-right rather than top-to-bottom. Put on-screen navigational controls on the left or right side of the screen and save vertical space for content.

comment Which is easier to use: List of people sorted by FirstName, LastName or LastName, FirstName?
When you say "order them by" are you referring to the display order or the sort order, or both?
