comment How should multiple buttons wrap on different responsive breakpoints?
This is not exactly an answer, (hence writing as a comment) but I don't think you've left anywhere near enough vertical space there for people with fat fingers on their tablets.

comment What Is Your Expert Experience regarding Severity Ratings in Heuristic Evaluation or Expert Review?
This reads more like a questionnaire requesting lots of peoples responses, rather than a question you are looking for a specific response to. This is a Question and Answer site, not a discussion forum. Can you rephrase it so that it is less of a questionnaire?

comment Matching Navigation Names to Page Titles?
Well to be pedantic here, 'Checkout' is the noun, as in the place where you pay. Whereas 'check out' is the verb - you are completing a 'check out'. So you check out at the checkout.

comment Matching Navigation Names to Page Titles?
Buttons are for actions though, not navigation (well, traditionally speaking anyway).

comment Does avoiding the hamburger menu on Android break a core platform UI pattern?
Don't just ask if there are apps that do this (there may be some really crappy ones that do, for instance, and what use would that really be to you?) Instead focus the question on whether or not you should do it.

comment Form field border width for colorblind people
If someone is colourblind and can't distinguish red from another colour then it's not really going to matter if it's 1px or 50px. Make sure Color is not used as the only visual means of conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or distinguishing a visual element

comment How to improve “between” operator usage in grid?
Can we get more detail here? What situation is this used in? Improve it how? What is wrong with this implementation that makes you think it needs changing? Is it testing badly?

comment What are some accepted styles of Greeking for loading content?
Do you have a particular use-case in mind and want to know if this would be appropriate? This post would do better if it were written as such, otherwise you'll just get people leaving link-only answers like "example.com does this" which isn't really ideal for this Q&A site.

comment Should we be including VAT in prices of products rather than adding it on at checkout?
Where do you get this 37% figure from? Can you cite the source for it?

comment Should we be including VAT in prices of products rather than adding it on at checkout?
Who is the target audience? If it is international then that means the VAT is not payable for non-EU people and therefore useful to show separately. If it's for UK / EU only stores then the outcome may be different.

comment Should i make users login to my Mobile App?
So the users don't really have any benefit by signing in and you don't really have any use for their contact details either. I think for that reason you're better off not forcing them to sign in.

comment Should i make users login to my Mobile App?
No, I mean if I were a user of this app, what would I get out of being registered? This is a User experience Q&A site not a Business experience one. I'm assuming there is some incentive for users to register for this app, other than just deciding to hand over their email address. Do they get access to new features?

comment Should form 'Continue' button be disabled if validation is incomplete?
Is it a good User Experience to disable it though? That is my main question. From a UX point of view I am not really concerned what format the back-end needs the data, I just want to know if it is a good or a bad thing to disable the button until validation is complete, and why it is so. Can you expand your answer to cover that off (in a way not already covered by previous answers)?

comment Does anyone have data or statistics on how forcing users to give up gender during registration effects conversions
This question has some useful links: ux.stackexchange.com/questions/6133/… In summary - the more fields are present the lower the conversion percentage. And more complex fields (such a select boxes, which you are probably using for gender) have greater impact on that conversion rate than just plain text fields. So regardless of the fact it is Gender being asked for, just the fact that anything is being requested is going to reduce conversions.
