comment UI pattern for a user to enter in someone else's birthdate
Both good points @Mark. I'd suggest a minor edit to: "The input should be masked (e.g. mm/dd/yyyy) so the user doesn't need to worry about format."

comment UI pattern for a user to enter in someone else's birthdate
Not so fast. It should use the regional settings configured by the user on their machine. As a New Zealander working in New Zealand, I expect every application to work with dd/mm/yyyy because that's how we do things here - an app that forces something else slows me down a lot. Similarly, if I were Japanese and living in Chicago, I'd expect to be able to choose between the yyyy/mm/dd that I grew up with and the local mm/dd/yyyy convention.

comment What should be allowed in full name in a sign up form?
There are people whose names don't fit in the parameters you gave (I went to university with one) - names get longer than you think.

comment Combining a Ribbon with a Search Bar
You could do this - but it gets complicated fast once you start taking things like "Large Fonts" and "Display dpi" into account. Better to work within the bounds of the toolset itself.

comment Floating vs Hovering share buttons for listicles?
Website UX elements that rely on hover are going to break on mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets unless you separately provide a different mechanism for those users.
