comment Wording for an application/sub-system that allows editing user profile pages
Can you update the question to be more specific? I'm left guessing as to what it is you're building, there is no info about what the admin page does... If we don't get more clarity on what stuff does, we can't help you giving it names. Also please improve the title, it also doesn't give any clues on what topic we're covering here.

comment Research on scrolling within modal (web)? pros/cons?
Modals don't need to be brief, why would they need to? You can do more with the modal window design pattern than just alerts (alerts do need to be brief).

comment Did the default positions of OK and Cancel CHANGE in Windows or web browsers?
Great answer. If I'm right, the windows and osx guidelines haven't changed for ages in this regard, and have always disagreed. Perhaps lots of designers preferring macs have made the osx way prevail on the web?

comment Is it acceptable to open a modal popup on top of another modal popup?
"No never" sounds too limiting to me. Of course, modals should be used sparingly, but if they make sense, why not use them? I don't think your comparison to pop up windows is right, the problem of pop up windows is something completely different. So, I don't disagree that you should reconsider what you're doing if you get that second modal, but I don't agree with your reasoning.

comment Good idea to have back button close a modal window?
The question mentions the modal contains content. Obviously forward should go to the content that you left by going back. There is no rule that back only goes to "pages" or what "pages" are in the context of current web technology. Also, the web is more than just pages and designers should take care in making sure standard browser controls make sense in whatever they design. Having back close the modal can make a lot of sense.

comment Foundation has the “ok” button of their modal-dialog on the left, why?
We cannot answer why foundation did anything. There can be any number of reasons. On the right may be a good default, but if the ui wins in clarity by putting it left, that may be better. You should not approach ux looking for hard rules like "buttons go on the right". As it is, I'm voting to close because you're not going to get anything but opinions here.

comment Do good UX guidelines exist against little JS windows inside the browser
There is nothing inherently wrong with modal windows. There is a lot wrong with breaking default browser behavior. You can however have the one without the other. Your question sounds more like a rant against a specific implementation.
