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.

comment General strategy on help
Then that is what the comments field is for. Leave a comment against answers or your own question. That's what they're for. Answers are for answers only,which is why is a Q&A format site, not a forum.

comment General strategy on help
Please don't put commentary about the question and answers within answers themselves. Reserve the answer option exclusively for answering and nothing more. There is no problem answering your own question, provided that it is an answer.

comment How best to let users know that the site is responsive, that it should run well on desktops, tablets and mobiles?
Why do you feel you need to indicate this? You don't do such messages for "works on Android and Windows". Chances are people don't even care - they just want it to work on wherever device they're using, so trekking them it works on other things is not really necessary.

comment Why are Inverted Colors considered an accessibility feature?
Do you have any links to such reading studies? If you're referencing studies you should really link to them too.
