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.

Removed short URLs. Not clear what they are for or why they are relevant.

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?

comment During usability tests I see several people try to scroll down, how can the UX be improved to avoid this
Telling someone where to go to find an answer doesn't constitute an answer to the question. Can you elaborate on this - explain the relevant aspects of gestalt led and inclosure and how it relates rou the question asked?

comment How long should automatic doors delay closing?
Can you change that link to link to a page that actually states this? In the mean time the link has been removed as we don't allow signatures against posts on this site. But links as citations to sources are different.

comment Is there a problem with using black text on white backgrounds?
If you have useful links you can still post them as text, and if they're OK one of the other users will edit them into your post for you.

comment Why don't we use Left navigation for website?
Navigation isn't the same thing as paragraph text though, so isn't supposed to be read in the same way. Users hunt for a particular item that they are looking for, rather than reading the whole thing. I would say that it's easier to quickly find 'Sentence' in your second example than in the first.

comment What does a psychology research graduate need to develop to become ready for a career in UX/HCI?
This isn't a UX question; it's a careers advice one. And it's not really a question with a single, canonical 'correct' answer. Everyone is going to have a different opinion on this, none of which are more correct than the other.

comment In survey results which one is better - to show number of voters or not?
From a user point-of-view, yes it's better to show the number of voters. But that may not be the case from the business point of view. If it's a poll on a corporate site then it's likely they don't want it to appear that they only have a few visitors. Businesses want people to think they're huge and popular.

comment Does visual design really affect UX?
I'm not sure I follow how this answers the question though. Visual design is not only subjective. Can you expand on this answer?
