comment How can I distinguish two different types of buttons, without using labels everywhere?
Webreaper, do you know many people who enjoy counting cars at intersections? :) My point is that this is not a leisure app or a game, it's a productivity app designed for people whose job it is to count cars. It doesn't need to be intuitive, it needs to be super-efficient. The UI has a very flat learning curve, and can be learned in about a minute. After that minute - would you prefer having to perform one or two clicks for each car? Imagine yourself doing this at a major intersection, say 3 lanes each way, in rush hour.

@Emanuel, the buttons near the center are closer to each other, that's what matters. 90% of the time you will be switching from button to button, not from the outside to a button. And most of those will be cars, not trucks.

comment Design for data-intensive web-page and search criteria
Paul, your question seems interesting, but I couldn't quite figure out what the question is, exactly :). Could you clarify? What is the specific problem you're trying to solve?

comment How to display a distinction between actions which affect the 'real world' vs. actions that affect only the information in the application?
Do you mean that the same controls perform slightly different actions on different entities, or that you need to provide two different sets of controls for the different actions, and you're thinking about how to convey this difference on the controls?

comment How much should a UX professional know about front-end development?
@DA01 See my answer to Rahul. I think you'll agree with me that familiarity with the platform and the ability to build something yourself are completely different things.

comment How much should a UX professional know about front-end development?
@Rahul, I think these are two completely different things. I'm well aware of the capabilities and limitations of the platforms I work with, yet I can't write one line of HTML or any other programming language (unless you count Borland Pascal). Awareness/knowledge is one thing, being able to build something - as most answers here expect - is a very different matter.
