comment Why do financial institutions use usernames instead of emails for login?
This isn't really a UX issue; the experts at Security StackExchange might be a good place to ask.

comment How can we clarify that our giant red button just opens the door and is safe to press?
@NateKerkhofs: The colour change is the right UX answer. How you do it without leaving a residue or annoying the building owner is out of scope, that's a problem for implementation ;)

comment What is the best way to select a subset of a string, for both web and mobile?
@magnus.westrom: Yes, I was imagining this as a popup. The main grid of transactions can have an inline category picker, then once the user has confirmed the categorisation then the popup lets them generalise it as a rule.

comment Displaying and editing multivalued attribute?
I think the list display was better for the user - it's easier to scan down a list to look for a particular code, than hunt through a grid.

Are you only ever creating rules on the Note text? Or could a rule also/alternatively depend on the amount, for example?

comment Ideal waiting time before posting another post
Not necessarily: for some types of troublesome user (e.g. trolls, bots) it's useful to slow things down or put other impediments in their way for the benefit of the site or community. See blog.codinghorror.com/suspension-ban-or-hellban for examples.

comment Is there a site explaining common “feature not supported” issues in user friendly language?
I don't think this advice is relevant; JohnLBevan's situation seems to be that he's committed to graceful degradation, and wants to make it work helpfully.

What window, in what context? Is this a mobile app or a website?

comment Displaying to the user a radio button before it has been selected
Having an unset state is quite common; many programs use this state, a NULL in the database, to record when a value isn't known.

comment Layout for on-screen hexadecimal keyboard
Can I ask who your users are? Will they be using this keyboard often enough to get familiar with it?
