comment Why do web designers force users to enter credit card numbers without hyphens or spaces?
Why do they do it? Simple really - Because it's faster and easier to code it that way.

But what would the field label say? You'll basically be duplicating label and placeholder here. Is that OK?

comment How to use breadcrumbs in a responsive layout?
Can you leave some details from those links, rather than just getting everyone to follow those links for the examples? If those links go down then this answer will be useless. An answer needs to be self-contained, but use links as citations for the references.

comment Differents backgrounds in a website
What sort of background? The majority of big sites these days don't have any background (see this very Stackexchange site for example). A quick check of the tabs I have open show only a few forums and IMDB have any discernible background. What are you thinking of having; different coloured ones? Images?

@Siddharth That was not a good question. It's asking for recommendations for websites. That isn't a UX issue, and it was closed accordingly. If this site let in all sorts of questions it'd descend into being Yahoo Answers / Quora, not the professional UX Q&A repository that it currently is. Moderators would hold this responsibility - is that the direction they want the site to go?

comment Best way to show transition between states
I have no idea what it is you're asking here. Transitioning of states of what? Please show an example of one state vs another so we know what you're talking about here.

comment Three carousels side by side on the home page, bad idea?
Ok, your description of a slider is not what I would describe as one. Can you provide a mockup example? We don't want people leaving answers that don't relate to your issue, which is likely to happen without more detail. Please edit your question to add such detail and examples.

comment Three carousels side by side on the home page, bad idea?
Can we get some more context here? What are the sliders used for? Why does the client want them grouped this way? Why do you think it is a bad idea?

comment Would leaving a due date field blank mean “No due date” to a user?
By answering "as a user" that really means you're just giving one subjective opinion. That may or may not be the case with the majority of users though.

comment How to ensure users can't sign up for multiple accounts?
Be careful what you go with. Don't end up annoying 100% of users just to protect yourself from the 1% that might abuse it.

comment What is the best number of navigation options to have on a website
@DarkLord if it's a website that will exist on the internet in any form, then yes, it certainly will.
