comment Why are jail bars vertical and not horizontal?
@user13107 Bars can also be fixed to window frames to prevent home intruders from getting access to the house through the windows.

comment Why are jail bars vertical and not horizontal?
I am a bit curious about what prompted you to ask this question. I guess you are only talking about the context of imprisonment and not the use of bars for household security purposes?

comment Why are jail bars vertical and not horizontal?
Can't vertical bars also be used to hang themselves? It is just how you tie the knot.

comment Why are developers ignored by UX?
I'd love to see this topic get asked in the appropriate areas of the site, since there are some interesting things that can be looked at in more detail. Programmers/developers are a specialized group of users too!

comment Is the ELMER form design guidelines still current? Any other good government guidelines out there?
That's right, I almost forgot about that one. Although I think it would be good if they provided more examples to go with the guidelines, as the ELMER guide does.

comment How much scrolling is too much scrolling?
@DisgruntledGoat I am referring to extensions that has a button which takes the user to the top of a page, which is useful if the website implements infinite scrolling.

comment Pattern to show related fields with Boolean value
If they are read only fields, then you should also consider a table going horizontally across the page if you can find good groupings for similarly related fields.

comment Nonlinear Wizard Progress Tracking
Seems like a Breadcrumb might be tricky to design if the user goes into a workflow and also has a progress step indicator combined with a Breadcrumb that changes depending on user input.

comment How much scrolling is too much scrolling?
I think the question is not how much scrolling the user would accept, but whether you have put in something to indicate the amount of content available and if there are good mechanisms to filter/search/navigate the content easily. If you solve those issues then having a lot of scrolling won't matter so much (and you might not have to do much scrolling at all). But if users just want to browse casually like a random search, there's no need to design for it specifically.

comment How much scrolling is too much scrolling?
Browsers like Google Chrome already has extensions/plug-ins for scrolling back to the top.

Sydney and Melbourne are the better cities to get into UX careers in Australia. Mind you, even experience UX professionals share the same frustration about the way websites are designed at the moment, and a lot of it has to do with the upper management slow to transition into UX practices, like they are doing now with Agile processes. Happy to provide some advice and insight if you want to take the discussion offline.
