Have a read of the tour page which will explain what sort of questions work on this site.

comment Terminology for Permissions Operation
OP may have asked you to add it as an answer, but that doesn't mean it's a detailed enough answer for the site at just one line. You haven't covered off any explanation other than 'I'm a developer and it's what I do'. Why do you use that term? Do users understand it as well? Where does it come from? Is it a commonly used term? Explanation and context rather than just one-line answers are what this site is for. We're not here just to help one individual person, but to help anyone who finds this question in future. And they'll need detail and reasoning to find it useful.

comment On Click of Submit Three actions
This is not a UX question, and at any rate just posting a "can you give me the code" type question wouldn't be welcoming on any stackexchange / stackoverflow site as you'd be expected to have done most of the coding already. Nobody is going to write all the code for you.

comment Showing a “recently purchased” carousel
What business benefit does this provide? If you're looking to implement a feature then you should be able to link it to a specific, measurable business requirements. Otherwise you're just adding unnecessary noise to the site, which is expensive to build and a waste of screen real estate.

comment User research for a product users have never used
Great. Thanks for adding in the summary, some really good information here.

comment New to UX and considering it as a career. Help!
I'm glad you're considering getting into that field, but I'm afraid your question here isn't really suited to this site. We're here to provide solutions to specified UX problems, not broad career advice. You're better off finding a discussion forum instead of a Q&A site for such broad advice. Please take the tour to get a better idea of the scope of this site.

comment What kind of language is most acceptable for placeholder text?
Is it going to be possible to provide a hint to an address without that hunt providing an example though?

comment Reducing the steps for ordering online
What is your motivation for wanting to reduce it even further? Usability testing feedback? Analytics? How do you know what you currently have isn't working?

comment How much does a DITA solution cost?
You're not asking about technical writing: your asking about the price and hosting of software. I don't know where such questions are suitable, but not on any of the stack exchange sites.

comment How much does a DITA solution cost?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about purchasing software not solving user experience problems.

comment Make user aware that he cannot enter arbitrary values into textbox?
It's not just faq or help pages people don't read, it's most of the content on all pages they don't read. The more text on screen the less of it gets read.

comment Auto Suggest for very slow internet connections
This isn't a UX question because you've already decided what the User Experience answer is: you want to provide auto suggest. What you're asking here is how to implement that UX solution, so you've moved on from the scope of this site at that point. We can help with what to implement, but how you implement it is out of scope here.

comment Why do some users complete forms all in capital letters?
This doesn't explain why they want to type in caps in the first place.

comment How to compare two items in a small space?
This is a bit unclear. Can you give us more details? What are you comparing? Pictures? Specifications? Can you show us an example of what you've currently tried and why it isn't suitable.
