comment Why are Google Maps not using direct manipulation? Should I?
Thanks, that's a perfect answer. I will undoubtedly need a search box in my map too so I am thinking of following the Google Map path.

comment Labels in a zoomable interface
I assume you checked the images in real size - thanks for the feedback. Also I didn't notice the map labels are not fixed size - well played Google :)

comment n-to-n selector UI
thanks, that is of great help, I finally managed to find this for Twitter Bootstrap virtuosoft.eu/code/bootstrap-duallistbox, they call it dual list box, but it has the filter at the top which is important for me.

comment Is there a name for this kind of design flaw?
Familiar is best only up to a point. Design where you have to touch an object that everyone who didn't was his hands had to touch too is simply negated by your familiarity rule.

No it is not. Prove me otherwise. Not all doors open inside the smaller room, there is plenty of toilette doors that open outwards.

A) I am the author of that post. B) I don't subscribe to blindly following codes without thinking about them. C) If you don't see having someone else's fecal bacteria on your hands after you have washed them as a design flaw then I have nothing to discuss with you.

@Charles your can always wash your hands while inside the restroom, even before you touch your private parts.

comment How to inform user that he can use mouse wheel to interact with an object?
That's complicated, one does not simply change the cursor in a browser :)

The more I think about it the more I agree with you. People will understand the zooming and less is sometimes more.

Where would you put it and how would it look like? Be more specific so that I can give you some credit.

comment Why do most public toilet doors open inwards?
From your answer it seems to me that the bacteria contamination on the door handle (especially E-coli) is of greater danger for the user than the possibility of being hit by the door opening to any side (especially if the door is transparent and doe's not lead to large public area directly) or the possibility of being struck inside the restroom where the door is blocked from outside. my conclusion is that the answer to my question is that the pull-handle-to-leave-the-restroom design is pure madness.

as a physicist I doubt the way the door opens has any effect on the direction of the air flow

Hi guys, whichever of you improve your answer to reference the Nielsen's original research (Ten Usability Heuristics) will get the correct answer from me. Thanks for your help.

comment Why do most public toilet doors open inwards?
Sorry I don't see the difference between the danger of being hit on eitherside of the door. Moreover the door on my pic has transparent areas and leads to small dedicated corridor. From this it looks to me that the danger of infe tions is much higher than potential danger of being hit more often on certain side.
