comment Should edits affect upvotes/likes?
@w3d But if you can compare the versions (wikipedia style or SE style or any style), then this is perfectly fine for a website with a specific userbase.

@celeriko But then you post-pone the information to some users, which is not a good idea either. Also, one could be pretty confused: last month I got an e-mail confirmation, but not this month? ...

Note that I never let the sender know I've read the mail. You can call me crazy, but that's me and I'm not alone who does it. Therefore you shall consider it.

comment Which way should arrows point for a dropdown button?
@nocomprende That's why the status of the player should be shown at another place than where the button action is. I'm confused by this as well since my player does what your does.

comment Carousel: next and previous buttons
This is not always good since the user need not realize he is moving in circles. Imagine a user looking for a particular button in a carousel that is not there.

comment For death year, should I use N/A or — if person still alive?
@Mooz Died: not yet is extremely cynical, and also offensive, as explained in a previous comment by SantiBailors

comment For death year, should I use N/A or — if person still alive?
@TotZam Note that wikipedia is extremly consistent in this: if the year of death is unknown, the field "Died" is still shown. This is a different information than that the person is still alive, and these two things have to be well distingished! Also, for living people, the parenthesis says "age", whereas for dead people it say "aged".

comment Why let users deactivate/delete account?
You list data that fall, under the Czech law at least, in category of "identifying a person", and use and storage of such data is regulated by laws. So even it's "very limited data", you have to be careful.

comment Is taking users away from your website to a third party secure checkout bad UX?
The task is to reasonably protect your money. (Note that I don't use a smartphone, you can't hack my iPhone of Galaxy whatever to get access to both my browser and my SMS inbox, both at once. Call me paranoid.) I agree, there's too much to say, so better stop here :-) Howgh.

Yep, these API designs know to break with any authorized transaction (passwords, SMS, etc.), exactly because it's impossible to correctly redirect to my bank's website and back, or it's not set up to allow that :-)

comment Is taking users away from your website to a third party secure checkout bad UX?
(No offence intended) You've never bought anything online with a credit card, other than on large sites like amazon or ebay? Almost all smaller e-shops redirect for payment. And for instance here they even redirect 4 times: Once to the payment site, and then to my bank's site, because the transaction is usually 3D secure, which in my case means SMS authorization. Then back to the payment site to finish the transaction and then back to the e-shop.

comment How to indicate that one of a group of fields is required
@Kroltan You don't need that. You know how a phone number looks like and how an e-mail address looks like, so one field named "Parent's email or phone number" is sufficient. Similarly to a payment website knowing (and showing) whether your card is visa or MC or whatever, based on the number.

Speaking of familiarity, I'm more familiar with filling my CC details in the paypal or gopay forms than in some badly formatted and who-knows-how protected website. I have seen way too many e-shops to trust their security!

But we speak about a user finishing his shopping, being redirected to a payment portal, and being redirected back. I don't see how your 2nd sentence is even slightly relevant here. The user will be taken back once the transaction is processed!

comment Is taking users away from your website to a third party secure checkout bad UX?
I have it the other way around! I prefer the site where I enter by CC details to be as standard as possible, best if it's a site of a large service (like paypal, gopay etc.) or of a banking institution (like in my country where many e-shops use Erste or KBC).

comment Multi position switch (while avoiding dropdowns and skeuomorphism)
you should shade (make pale) the "unselected" options at least slightly. The text itself does not really deliver the message of being selected, at least to me.

comment Is there any reason to send “no-reply” emails?
@BrianKnoblauch You mean like those Amazon mails that have, just below the main body of the mail: "Need to view or print your invoice? Go to Order Details. Learn more. // It's easy to return an item. Visit our Online Returns Centre. // If you need further assistance with your order, please visit Customer Service." All three items are hyperlinks o somewhere, all to a different (relevant) place. Is that really more complicated than replying to a mail?

comment Is there any reason to send “no-reply” emails?
@A.L Not really. What if I make an order with 10 items and want to return one of them? Also, even if in the end I will communicate with someone by mail, the someone easily depend on many factors. From the company's point of view, the more you do by clicking in a webpage, the more expenses they cut at the customer service.

comment Best way to find and select a country
Well, as long as people are not shopping to their home address while actually abroad etc., or aren't like me (VPNs, forbidden location sharing, etc.) Choosing something for the user because you believe that's what the user wants is always bad. This annoys the hell out of me with Google, who do it all the time.
