comment Does dark colour affect user's trust?
I especially agree with being "in tune with the product". The site has, except the pure user interaction design, an overall user experience to take into consideration - in most cases the feeling the product, or the organisation wants to communicate to the user.

comment Four states, one checkbox - any way for it to make sense?
Exactly - keep away from "yes", "no" and similar answers. Write what the choice is. The same goes for buttons. Instead of just typing "Ok" on a button, write what it will do.

comment 0 to 10 rating system alternative
I would argue that there should be an odd number on the scale, but one more possible answer is "I don't know" or similar. To give something 3 stars is different from saying "I have no idea"

To save space - just a "like" and "dislike". Pressing none means "I'm neutral". Might be hard to implement so that the user understands that none have to be pressed (?)

comment Icon design for map/satellite image flip?
Well, if the icon will be really small I think your best shot is to use a satellite as a starting point. To differentiate a drawn map from a real image (satellite photo) on an icon of just some pixels will be hard. Another approach is to see the Satellite icon (map view) as a state that can be turned on or off. That way you don't have to design 2 icons...

comment How can I guard against users accidentally sending emails without attachments?
It may look strange but you should still leave the option to attach a file even though the 'Send Email' button is pressed. If the user suddenly wants to attach something, it should be possible without rewriting the email after pressing the other button...

comment One button for two actions
Well, if the buttons purpose is impossible to achieve in different states of the program it can be a good idea to change what it does. A play button on an old tape recorder makes the tape play. Press it again and it makes the tape stop (since it can't start an already started tape. This is true for some tape machines - not all). This behavior is adopted on youtube for example.
