StackOverflow has helped me a metric ton in the past - when I searched for something on Google, the stackoverflow results usually were among the best. So I decided I'd try to give something back.

Thank you all for supporting this community!

comment How can I indicate new functions within paper or clickable wireframes?
This is probably good advice for in production systems, but bullet points 2 and 3 clearly are not applicable to wireframing.

comment Which UI is more user-friendly and effective: Tabs or Collapsible Panels?
@JoanVenge Scrolling and hunting aren't intrinsic flaws of collapsible panels. Scrolling occurs when the combined size of all expanded panels exceeds the available space. By collapsing them they can adapt to the user's needs and available screen space, something that group boxes (and tabs) can't. The hunting is caused by the design of the specific product, and might even be slightly worse with tabs, since you cannot ever "hunt" through all options without clicking a lot. Also, I wasn't questioning the quality of any of the pictured products - only pointing to a specific flaw in one of the UIs.

comment Best practice for monetary input separators validation internationally?
@jlarson I live in one of those countries, and it always is a hassle to user non-localized software since the period is not available on the numeric keypad. I have seen cases though where users were conditioned to use a period by some other software (which wasn't localized) and then just assumed that would apply everywhere. So it is important to give good feedback.

comment Up & down arrows vs Drag & drop for reordering elements
Please also note that having arrows does not exclude the possiblity to have drag and drop as well, so you could actually have both.

comment Where should the “preferences” item go in a desktop application?
When introducing the Ribbon control, Microsoft moved Options to the file menu. E.g. In Word 2007 it's Menu Orb | Word Options (bottom right of menu), in Word 2010 it is File | Options
