comment What are some design patterns for a cycle button?
Is it one-directional? So no cycling back, just all the way around and then it starts back at the first setting?

comment Single call-to-action for 'Sign Up' and 'Log In'?
@raptortech97 it IS a security issue. Also, the additional steps do not seem good from a UX perspective, my profile --> login/ enter username --> enter password. That's an extra screen / form each time an existing user return.

comment 'Likes' vs 'Upvotes'
If the specific goal is to怀rank quality in a vote system, then I would use something that points to that, like the SE network. Emotions play no part in quality and emotional phrases should be left out.

comment 'Likes' vs 'Upvotes'
"Know your audience" comes to mind. Do you want to know if they "like" it or think it is a good fit? For example this site, I might not like your question, but think it is a good question. How do you want me to vote?

comment App Usage Statistics - WHAT do you gather?
My personal preference is for the app to ask at first launch "Would you like to help [Company] improve [Product]? All statistics are anonymous and you can change this at anytime by going to settings."

comment Applications without title bar: how to show the user which application they're using
Icons, splash screens, empty chrome, custom icons with a brand-recognizable theme... What sort of application? Win Form?

comment Logout after password change?
I agree, at the OS level the OS has few ways of knowing what applications are doing. An email client for example may already have a authenticated token which on password change it doesn't attempt to reauthenticate properly causing issues. So while logging out in itself is not a great UX, it is far better than lockouts and various odd failures for the rest of the day, week, month.

comment Best way of making a credits transfer dialog
Seems intuitive enough, but perhaps the "your account" label should identify "After transfer" somehow

comment Why are the controls opposite/inverted when flying in a game?
Also, many aircraft do have a control stick, not the wheel looking column. Jet fighters, ultra lights, helicopters for example.

comment Is maintaining scroll good?
depends on the webpage I would say. If relevant info changes at the top, it should be within focus. If the only probable actions with the page after the refresh is where the user was, then the page position should be maintained.

comment Why are the controls opposite/inverted when flying in a game?
You are on the right track: Pulling back lifts the elevator angling the plane UP. Intuitively, when you pull back, you look up / lean back yourself. So coming out of a climb you slowly put your body from an up position to an at rest position and the plane is sort of following the movement of your shoulders.

comment Email address as username--how to reduce incidence of bad entry
@cimmanon more likely, maybe... But most seasoned surfers will have only one to a few usernames, so its not like we are talking orders of magnitude here to my knowledge.

comment Shower Controls
3 handle faucets are no longer allowed to be built in new homes, from what I gather. The explanation I got was that they can not prevent super hot water like a single handle can. Old homes can get replacement 3 handle'rs but new homes must have the single.
