comment Entering order amount with clicks in a game
What is it you're actually suggesting then? "using the keyboard more" is a bit vague, have you got anything more specific? And your reasoning for it?

comment “Change password”, “change your password” or “pick a new password”?
My opinion is - I think you're overthinking this. I'd be surprised if anyone saw a message and decided "That message was way too angry, I'm not going to change my password out of protest!". Just make it clear, brief and obvious.

Do you even want it to be friendly? If it's too friendly then it might just come across as optional, but if it's actually important then something more instructional is possibly better.

comment “Your friend has sent you a message on our website, register to see it” - is there a name for this technique?
I'd say it's a form of clickbait.

This is going to be a bit fiddly to use with your fingers on a small mobile screen, no?

"user would rather have a dialog than see multiple buttons on the same page" - Why do you say this?

comment Forms with Remember Me or Save for Later
Quite a long post here, and much of it is really comment on the question and other answers rather than a unique answer in its own right (after all, this is a Q&A site, not a forum). But you make some interesting points really. However I would dispute your assurance that modals are the best thing to do here. They're not very accessible, and they aren't really that mobile friendly either. I am also not sure they add to the general UX as it adds in a whole extra dialog to what is really a simple process. Are you sure that forcing a modal on people is what they want?

removed unnecessary chat. That is just noise and doesn't add to the answer.

comment Top-down hamburger menu / is it a cool experience regarding my application?
Are they 'shocked' in that they don't know how to use it? Do they still recognise it as an icon that triggers a menu to appear?

comment When is using haptic feedback for button presses a good idea?
While you make some good points here, a lot of it is verging on Apple Fanboy-ism (I'm not sure it's accurate to state that Apple were the founders of on-screen keyboards, nor that you should primarily look at what Apple are doing). However your points about sweeping and vibration together not being the best of friends is a very good point. As too is the issue of considering devices that don't have vibration features. One other question though - can you expand on what you mean by 'Use it as an accessibility extra feature"?

Does your client realise that whatever solution you come up with, someone could easily claim they don't have an email address when they actually do, but just don't want to provide it?
