comment How can I make monochrome icons work?
I didn't get to see the screenshot before it was redacted, so my comment might be irrelevant, but I have tested with a few users and most preferred coloured icons: ux.stackexchange.com/a/40065/31980 I'm just trying to add to the colour discussion here.

comment Which map background color is best (from the perspective of ergonomics at the workplace)?
The question is about ergonomics. Ergonomics includes perception. A CAD staffer at OP's job talking about "best for the eyes" is not enough justification for the assumption that perception is irrelevant for this questions.

comment How to encourage users to discover software functionalities?
OP: Fair enough. @firedrawndagger I asked some questions to make the point that the workflow question should probably come before the exploration one; apart from that, I do have potential answers myself.

comment How to encourage users to discover software functionalities?
The question seems to imply that exploring functionality is a good thing. Why should a user break their workflow to explore anything? If some functionality is required, it should be pretty obvious. If it's not obvious, a) users may not have the time to look for it and will probably download some other software and, b) users may think it must be some "advanced" setting in case something breaks down. So, the question of workflow should come before the exploration one.

revised Would it be risky to gamify school?
Changed "gamificate" into "gamify". Both are coventions, but "gamify" is by far a more common one!

Also UI guidelines for other OSs might vary: for example, Gnome GUI for Linux explicitly differenciate Closing a window but Quitting an app: developer.gnome.org/hig-book/3.10/hig-book.html#the-file-menu

comment Dark admin theme - is it wise?
Make sure to read the comments of the article linked above! It contains many misconceptions, such as that screens reflect light, while they actually emit it, and so on. Some of these misconceptions are clarified at the comments.

comment 50% of the site responsive / 50% old vs. the whole site is old
Usually what happens is that you have a folder mySite.com/old/ where you put the old site. mySite.com has the new site.
