comment What's good colors for illustrating Up and Down?
Nice idea. This also ensures that the curtains won't clash with any existing color scheme in the room.

comment Using “Sign in” vs using “Log in”
I think "common use" is a pretty poor argument here. Plenty of UX antipatterns are in common use, with the better alternatives represented far less. It's quite possible that designers use "sign up/sign in", because they like the symmetry, but that it it increases the cognitive load and probability of capture slips.

comment Alternative to dropdown with over 6000 values
Will users tend to log in to the same store? If so, you can delay the issue by always letting them log in to the store they last logged into and letting them reselect when logged in.

comment Define the word “parse” for a non-technical user in 1-2 sentences
@Frisbee I see. Then I misunderstood your question, sorry. I thought you were looking for something to replace parse, rather than explain it. "To read a file" might still suffice as an explanation, but it may be too simple for your context. Paper testing should help decide between your favorite options.

comment Define the word “parse” for a non-technical user in 1-2 sentences
What I meant was that if they can read, they'll know what the word "read" means. Something you can't say for "interpret", "parse" or "analyze". It doesn't have to be technically correct, it needs to convey the message well enough that users will understand that this is what they're looking for. The behavior of the application and the associated form will tell them the rest. If you are worried that users will misinterpret the message, you should do some quick testing with a paper mockup.

comment How to add the feeling (perception) of complexity to an interface?
Think of google as an example. Consider the vast amounts of data centers, storage, and processing they do, all for that one page with nothing but a logo and a text box. People are fine with your complex application looking simple.

comment Selecting age between 6 and 18
Since it's for touch interfaces, I think this would work really well. I'd present it mainly as checkboxes, so that the user can just tap each if he doesn't get the painting metaphor, but provide a subtle hint for the power users.
