comment Horizontal scrolling widget for mobile webpage?
I too have looked for such a control but not had any luck. In the real world I think it's called a Thumbwheel, so that's what I searched for.

comment Do older adults prefer white-on-black or black-on-white?
This may be the case for you, but we can't be designing systems with just one person in mind. Subjective experiences need to be researched in more detail. Otherwise we'd end up designing for specific individuals rather than a broader target-audience. Your experience may be similar to 95% of the target population, or it could be just 0.005%.

comment Photoshop Shine Effect
This isn't a PhotoShop support forum so it isn't something we can help with. You can try searching over on graphicdesign.stackexchange.com to see if someone posted a similar question, but really you're better off looking on a dedicated Photoshop discussion forum.

comment Show progress as percentage or as absolute numbers?
..."being 50% of the way looks more positive than being 100/200," - is this the case though? This may just be your subjective perception of things, but it may be that some studies conducted on a variety of people find that it's the reverse.

comment What's the best pattern for public facing user IDs?
Users forget the passwords that they themselves have set up (and also forget their own memorable information too) so the chances of them remembering a random string of digits is pretty slim, I'd imagine.

comment What is the importance of an home page and its name?
The discussion is part of the reasoning process. But people just saying "I don't like {thing}" and just leaving it at that isn't helpful. However this site is a Q&A site, not a discussion forum, so we need a specific question that can be answered. This post is a bit discussion-y so may not be suitable to this site.

comment What is the importance of an home page and its name?
What 'doesn't make sense' with homepages? People are fine to have whatever opinions they want, but if they don't back up their opinions with any evidence - or even any solid reasoning - then all they have is a subjective opinion. And everyone has one of those. You don't implement anything that anyone wants; you implement things based on reasoning, research and evidence.

comment Using the hamburger menu icon more than once
Be careful here. You're working on an assumption that everyone knows what a hamburger menu is, and that is not that case. And hiding navigation - regardless of how familiar people are with that icon or not - will make it harder for people to navigate your site.
