comment How to convey: “don't move until the task is done!”
Hi asdfmaster, welcome to UX! Would be great if you expanded your answer to explain the benefits of your solution and to show how it's better than the alternatives.

I'm voting to close this question because the basic premise is wrong.

comment How to convey that an indicator is clickable
@RogerAttrill I agree that it's borderline.. For me it does fall on the other side of the fence, but that's just me :).

comment Why do some blogs and sales pages capitalize all words of titles in languages where such a form is not natural?
I think that the reason is that people aren't familiar enough with the capitalization rules of their language, along with the prevalence of English. They see title-case being used in English and they think that that's how capitalization works universally. I see it in Russian all the time (and in at least some of those cases I know for a fact that this was the reason, because once you show them that Russian has different capitalization rules, they stop doing it).

comment Why is the 0 next to 9, not next to 1?
You're making a wrong (but extremely common) assumption here. Placing commonly paired keys together doesn't speed typing up, but slows it down - because your fingers get in each other's way. Type "encyclopedia" and then "stewardesses". They have the same number of letters, but alternating hands (encyclopedia) speeds you up, while "stewardesses" is a very unpleasant word to type. That's also one of the reasons that people believe that QWERTY is bad. AFAIK there is no conclusive evidence that Dvorak is better, especially when you consider that there are many parameters in this, not just speed.

comment horizontal drop down
Keep in mind that this layout is very unfriendly for scanning. A vertical list can be scanned much faster than a horizontal one.

To be honest I don't really see the difference, but I'll retract the close vote in any case :).

comment What is the term for a numeric input field of a specific format?
It's pretty technical, I wouldn't try to use it with the general public.

comment dashboard design and reports
Hi Anu, welcome to UX.SE! This site is meant for specific questions which can be given a concrete answer, and asking for general criticism of your work is not a good fit for this site. If you have a specific problem that bothers you, please try to edit your question and to add it more focus.

comment Fallback chain for Chinese languages
@200_success Let's put it this way - there's nothing in my UX skill set that could help me answer this question. I'm not saying that I'm the measure for what is UX or that I should be able to answer any question on the site, but usually when I can't answer a question, it's because I'm lacking professional knowledge. Here I'm just lacking a knowledge of Chinese realities. A Chinese person with no knowledge of UX is better qualified to answer this than a UX person who doesn't know anything about China.

comment Fallback chain for Chinese languages
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it will be better answered on Chinese.SE. While it's definitely related to UX, the answer requires knowledge of Chinese languages and culture more than it does UX knowledge.

comment OK to make text, buttons, etc. larger on iPad than corresponding iPhone app?
Hi Justin, you're asking a good question, but I think it's best to rephrase it as "How to adapt an existing iPhone app to the iPad", and adjust the text accordingly. As to asking for examples - that is not really a good fit to this site. You can read more about why in the FAQ.
