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.

comment Visually show “Content cannot be dropped here”
You need to leave a lot more detail in your answers. Just one-liners such as this with no reasoning or explaination as to why you're suggesting it doesn't really make for a useful answer. It just comes across as a subjective opinion. Can you expand on this - state why you're suggesting this, whether it is a common and understood UX pattern, whether some studies or research have been done that support this idea... that sort of thing.

I've put this on hold temporarily until you can provide some more detail about what exactly it is that you're looking for here.

comment Visual comprehension of inclined line
It's not a UX question because you haven't stated the UX problem that this is related to. If you had a practical application for this then that would be different, but you are only asking about that theory, not the application of it.

comment Radio Button: Yes/No or No/Yes
@CompuChip: Both are poor answers that don't address the question (and I downvoted both accordingly). However at least the other answer gives a little bit of reasoning (albeit briefly).
