comment What should I do with huge “smileys” in chat?
@mic What do you mean by 'a better way to implement them'? Are you after some coding guidelines?

comment Should a multinational website background color be a conscious choice?
If choosing the background colour isn't a concious choice, then what is it? You have to choose something because if you don't pick anything then it's just white. So is that your point - "If you don't consciously choose a colour, is it OK to leave sites as White background"

comment How much detail in wireframes?
It all depends on what the purpose of the wireframes are. If they're for user-journey testing, or initial concept mockups then that's one thing, but if they're for the functional specification that needs stakeholder signoff or need to be handed over to development to implement then that's another. Cater the Wireframes to their purpose.

comment What is the best way to ask/set language preferences without using text?
What if you don't even know what the flag where the language you want to speak is? If I wanted to learn Swahili what flag would I choose for that? Flags aren't languages, they're countries. Countries speak lots of languages, and lots of languages are spoken in multiple countries.

comment What is the best way to ask/set language preferences without using text?
This seems like quite a lot of effort - split between several screens too. Also, flags should not be used for selecting language because flags just don't correlate with language, there are too many other meanings behind flags.

comment What is the best way to ask/set language preferences without using text?
OK, I see. A subtle difference but I agree they are different things (showing two language options and being able to show that one is native and one is target - a bit like the Google Translate options, but without text?). Hopefully the answers you get don't just mirror the linked question though, or a load of icons (which would be off-topic here) so the question might need a rewording if that happens.

Does this answer your question? ux.stackexchange.com/questions/2472/… I think it's probably a duplicate.

comment examples of user feedback for evaluation of other users' answers
There is a lot going on in this question, it's quite broad and there isn't a correct answer to this. Can you rephrase it so that it's a single, answerable question? Asking for examples isn't really a constructive question, but if you say "I want to do 'x', I have tried doing 'y' but that's not working so is there a better way to achieve 'x'" then that's a more answerable question than just requesting lists of examples.

comment For first-launch of a new site that has few users, should I initially leave out some features so it launches as a MVP (minimum viable product)?
@janoChen OK, I've edited the question title to make it clearer what you're asking. Feel free to amend if it's not correct, but the title wasn't clear enough when viewing on the front-page.

Why do you want to leave any of these features out? I assume it's because of time restrictions so you need to trim the feature-list initially?
