comment How to launch an additional info popup from a set of cells in a grid
What about users who don't use a mouse? How would they trigger this tool-tip?

comment Radio Button: Yes/No or No/Yes
@CompuChip: Both are poor answers that don't address the question (and I downvoted both accordingly). However at least the other answer gives a little bit of reasoning (albeit briefly).

comment How to make HTML5 number input field more user friendly?
You've not really said why you'd recommend that from a UX point of view. Really, they're not especially good as far as UX goes (at a glance it makes the fields look like they've already been filled in, coupled with the fact that as soon as you've started typing in it then the watermark disappears so it's no longer there as a reference)

comment Why do sites like stackexchange have users sign up for each site?
I've migrated this back over from Meta. It's not directly a question about Stack Exchange, just that SE is the site used as a reference for the problem at hand.

comment Asking a Yes/No/(N/A) Question
You say you want something better than your current version, but you've not really said what it is that is wrong with this one. Why doesn't this design work for you? What are the problems with it? How do you know it's wrong?

comment Text Boxes: Balancing first impression with usability
We can't really give opinions on it on it's own. Different patterns will be more appropriate in some situations than others. (Long forms with lots of fields / small newsletter signups / fields that need reviewing and editing / one-time submission forms...) Do you have a particular use for this in mind?

comment How to show Text only post in masonry blog layout and keep the things symmetrical?
Even if all posts had an image it'd require that the images be exactly the same size, and that all the text is exactly the same length too (and even then you're going to get words and lines wrapping because words are different lengths). Otherwise it's all going be be staggered anyway. And that's not necessarily a bad thing.

comment Difference in designing wireframes for apps in Nexus 5 like phones with virtual navigation bar and other phones with hardware navigation buttons
Well if they really need to be pixel perfect then it's quite simple. Do a separate wireframe for each Android device on the market at the moment. Which, according to Wikipedia is about 400-odd (excluding all the miscellaneous brand Chinese devices that pop up every week or so).

comment Radio Button: Yes/No or No/Yes
That may be true, but it doesn't really answer the question itself. OP wasn't asking for alternatives, or whether the use of radio buttons is appropriate, OP is asking what order the radio buttons should be shown in. Assuming there is a good reason for them having it as radio buttons - what order should they be in?

comment Health bar decreasing orientation
It doesn't strike me that he's being all that different. He's using a bar of hearts that grey out as life expires. That's pretty standard stuff really.
