comment What specific UX discussion forum allows tool questions?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not a UX question that needs a solution. Just because UX practitioners might be able to answer it, that doesn't mean it's suitable for this site. The question should be about a particular UX problem that you are trying to solve.

I'm not seeing a specific UX question in here. What is the UX problem that you're trying to solve?

comment Better way for users to select a date range
While this approach is probably quite intuitive and straight-forward on a touch device, I can see this being pretty painful to use with a mouse.

comment What is the preferred way to format phone numbers when supporting international ones?
If you're displaying international numbers then I assume you already know the dialing code for those numbers (i.e. +44 for UK). In that case can't you extrapolate the correct format based on the international dialing code?

comment What do 3 *close* horizontal bars (not the hamburger menu) represent UX-wise, and what's the origin of the design?
I'm not sure about this. While textured surfaces in the real world may have a degree of affordance, I'm not sure that translates to the digital world. Primarily because the screen is flat. You'd need some serious skeuomorphism to make hamburger menu buttons look real. And as we can see in most sites, all that happens is that three flat, solid colour lines are displayed.

comment Book genres color associations?
I'm not sure this is a UX question. Anyway, it's very brief. You are supposed to have a particular problem that you need a solution to, so can you expand on this post and tell us what it is you're trying to achieve? If it's a UX issue then we can reopen it for you.

comment Should I use a captcha in my sign up form?
@EdwinLambregts Captcha's are there for a reason, yes. But that reason is not UX. It's like saying to your users "We have a spam problem, so instead of dealing with it technically we're going to push the burden onto you, the user, instead". Sure, users are used to them, but that doesn't mean that a captcha is good UX compared to the alternative of no captcha.

comment Should I use a captcha in my sign up form?
Any form of CAPTCHA is less user-friendly than no CAPTCHA at all. What takes less time to do for you - typing your name in a box and hitting OK, or typing your name in a box, ticking a box and hitting OK?

comment Should I use a captcha in my sign up form?
As this is a User Experience site, then the answer is a definitive NO. Has any user ever said "Oh cool, I've got to solve this little puzzle before I can sign in!"

comment Should button positions ever rearrange depending on available functionality?
@obelia yeah, I considered that, but I don't like disabling something that can never be enabled. It's a pointless button greyed out forever. Is that really the better option?

comment Do users respond better to email that looks like a webpage?
Please don't include short URLs in answers. It obscures what they are linking to and are therefore treated like spam here. If they are relevant then include links with rationalistion as to what they are for, and include the full URL (not short ones). If they're not relevent then don't include them.

comment Prototyping Tools
Questions requesting recommendations for 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 any recommended items would soon be updated and replaced with newer / better versions making the best answers redundant. They are also magnets for spam.

comment Database ID auto Increment
Why would the end-user care what the Database ID number is? Do you care what the database ID is in Amazon's product database for a book you're searching for?
