comment What are good examples of in-app notifications?
This isn't really what this site is for. "List of examples of..." aren't questions with single correct answers, and as a Q&A site that's really what we need.

Why are you restricting this choice to one single, short English word?

comment Search input placeholder text
People who browse with mouse and screen may recognize it, but what about screenreader users or users with other assistive technologies? Don't just assume that because you have perfect eyesight that this is the case for everyone else. And also, Google exists purely for searching, so that is not the case for OP situation where the search field is one of the secondary (or even tertiary) features.

I think this may be off-topic because it is a suggested improvement for Android OS; it isn't a question.

comment How can I determine the optimal number of items to show in the visible window of a list box?
Putting control into the users hands is a nice idea in principle, but 95% of users don't actually change their settings so I'd have to get the default right first time anyway.

comment Is there a benefit from driving on one side of the road, while sitting in the other side of the car?
@MichaelKjörling Ah yes, what I meant in my comment was that I was unsure why the position of the driver seat has to have a direct relationship with the passenger exit door.

Did you do any research into this before posting this question? I mean Wikipedia gives you the answer and that's not exactly an unheard of site for such information.

Why would the passenger exit door have to be on the same side of the driver?

For info: Flag count shown in election nominations don't take into account Close flags, as those are now added to the review queue not to the moderator queue.

If you edit your post there is an option to draw a UI mockup, which is useful when you can't use screenshots.
