comment Ways for a company to organize common/shared Icons Images and Graphics
Re: Google Drive. You can use the desktop clients to achieve the same effect as Dropbox. We use it quite successfully to do just this.

comment Will forcing response time to the average time as a minimum improve UX?
+1 - I created a jQuery plugin for ajax calls and showing a spinner only when the request "is slow" (which is the behavior you talk about). This type of user experience has worked out very well for us.

comment Should the comments/discussion slide-in from the side?
It's pretty much all the space we have because the Old/New panels need to be as big as possible (since they're a visual diff - check some of my post history). I have thought about swapping out the changes view and the discussion view when the button was clicked, but then it'd be quite a large context change.

@jazZRo Just that the button staying visible (but active) and having the discussion below. That was pretty much all of the feedback.

Yeah - we considered this too. The problem for us is that discussion also shows activity (for example that something was created, approved etc.). If you click the comments button in Google Docs, you can see something similar to what we're trying to achieve.

Ha ha - me too... which is why I've been surprised about their reactions thus far... :)

After the few tests that I did with the users, they weren't confused about the actual button, but rather the placement of the discussion when it slides out.

@karlphillip I use Balsamiq mockups. This site also supports it directly with the mockup button (it's not the smiley anymore though).

Yeah - that's the most obvious solution, however it's not code that they can modify. If you check my post history, you'll see that it's sort of like flow-charts but with revision control. Therefore, the area to view the diff really needs to be maximized. Thanks for your idea, though!

comment Redirect to object's new location or display explanation?
While agree with this general premise, our application is similar in nature to distributed source control. Think of how Github or BitBucket can link directly to a branch of work. If a branch is created, linked to and then deleted, the link is no longer valid.
