comment How to design responsive sites for 1920 resolution?
What do you mean 'best way to handle the designs on 1920 res'? You say you have designs for that size already, and that you have users with monitors that size, so it's not really clear what it is you are looking for advice for here?

comment Is “You are here” in breadcrumbs redundant or necessary?
Can you expand more on your main point here - about relevancy for audio-only (screenreader) users? That is the part that is relevant to the question here, the rest of your answer is kind of superfluous. (We look to keep answers focused directly on the question being asked, not branching out to commentary on the wider topic at hand. That's more for discussion forums, not Q&A sites).

comment Navigation in one page view
It's still a bit vague, but I've added content from your comments into the post and reopened for now as there is more detail here than previously.

comment Search form covers navigation when triggered. Bad idea?
You're assuming the user clicked it with the express expectation of the search field appearing. What if they click by mistake, or click expecting a new page, or click it just to see what it does?

comment I've never met an infographic I didn't hate. But do they even work?
Mostly they're just put together by marketing departments as a way of having something clickbait-y to share on social media. And doing it as a graphic means they don't have to have any web development skill - just farm it off to a graphic designer somewhere who can produce a 5mb image to throw up on a blog somewhere. They're not really about providing information in any meaningful sense.

comment Reliable references for known user interface practices
This question is very unclear, and a bit all over the place really. You're asking several things all at once, and it's not really clear what your actual problem is. Can you refocus the question around the core issue (which appears to be about the impact on the user of constantly re-logging in) and explain that situation (is it an app / website? What type of site it is etc) and what it is you're having issues with, and we'll try to answer it (citing sources and material evidence where found). But currently your question is too confusing to give a solid answer to.

comment How to produce Mobile User Interface front-end page screenshot?
Really it was closed because it is a request for product recommendations, not really a question that can be solved with a correct answer, so it's not really a suitable post for this site. The question linked to should give you some pointers, but I'm afraid product recommendations aren't on topic for Stack Exchange sites.

Ask someone who uses a screen reader how much information they got out of it.

comment Red and Green meanings in other countries
I'm not sure that just labeling a coloured button with remove misunderstandings. If you coloured a Confirm button in Red and a Cancel button in Green on the same screen that's still going to be confusing to western users even with the text on them.

comment Ok to show iAd beneath Tab Bar?
Have you got a mockup / screenshot to illustrate this layout? A picture speaks 1,000 words.

comment Display posts in modal or separate link
By 'modal' that would imply they display in a 'lightbox' overlaid over the page. That's not what you mean here, is it? You're referring to the content expanding to show the comments vs opening in as separate page, correct?

comment UX realted books
This isn't a suitable question for this site I'm afraid. We're here to solve UX issues, not give out product recommendations. There are some older questions on here with book links though (which are also closed posts now, but still exist for reference) such as this one - ux.stackexchange.com/questions/4705/advanced-books-on-ux
