comment Lazy loading an image-focused website
Firstly - Is it true they users expect a delay? And secondly. - even if they do, does that still many it acceptable?

comment Make entire container clickable?
Would the container and the link both go to the same place? Because that would be possible. But (from a technical perspective anyway) having the Learn More link go somewhere different then that's problematic as in HTML you can't contain a link within a link

comment Determine which features not to show in responsive designs non-full site view?
...It's not design, it's just changing CSS at certain width. It's like saying 'take my Ferrari and make it a diesel'. You end up with the same car but totally unsuited to general use. So in your case that means you just reflow all the content on the site into a single column. And there you go, a 'responsive' website that will have a lot of vertical scrolling. It's unlikely to be a good site though, because you're taking desktop content and showing it on something that isn't a desktop.

comment Determine which features not to show in responsive designs non-full site view?
If you are just "making an existing website responsive" then that's not really best way to go. The content was designed for fixed-width desktop, not for consuming on a mobile. Therefore you'll likely have large decorative images, long paragraphs of text, Flash assets etc. None of this actual raw content designed to be used on a mobile device. You should start again afresh - plan out all the content with multi-device in mind from the outset. But if your brief is 'make this responsive' then you can do just that. All 'responsive' means (in a technical sense) is media query breakpoints...

You've referred to another question here but haven't included a link to it. Can you add that in?

comment I know what UX is, but where do I get the knowledge I need?
The reason most of the questions you found are because they're not really suitable questions for this site. There is no correct answer to such questions, you just get lots of peoples opinions.

comment Invite users to inline edit not only on hover?
Really, the dotted underline is really for <abbr> element - showing abbreviations. It is somewhat misused for hover, so much so that the original purpose is overlooked.

comment Is it better to include shipping cost in the product price?
Only if you're not doing things properly. User research, AB testing, reviewing analytics, conducting experimentation, reviewing research... all of this is objective rather than just stating "I like X". Some implementations do work better than others, and you'll find that out through objective research.

comment Is it better to include shipping cost in the product price?
This is a bit of a subjective answer rather than objectively stating how users in general perceive things.

comment Is it better to include shipping cost in the product price?
I don't think it's about shoppers being "smart enough to look at the final delivered price". There is some far more subtle psychology going on into how people perceive prices.

comment Why are developers ignored by UX?
This isn't really a question with a correct answer. It's more of a rant that you don't find some developer apps particularly user friendly. Maybe they are, maybe they aren't, but all this question does is say "These apps suck, am I right?" which is they type of question described in the "What type of questions should I avoid asking?" section of the help center.

comment payment option in college project
Sorry, but questions requesting recommendations for tools / books / software / apps / papers etc. would fall into the shopping request category and aren't really suitable to a Q&A website. The reason for this is that there is no one correct answer, and such recommended items would soon be updated and replaced with newer / better versions making the best answers redundant. This is going to be the same for other sites in the StackExchange family (including Stack Overflow) I'm afraid.

I'm not sure what you're asking for here. Are you looking for recommendations for a dummy payment gateway that you can use?

If ever there was a question screaming out for some AB testing, it is this.
