comment Is “UX” as an abbreviation for “user experience” meant to be ironic?
You've just made some of these up, surely! ;) (WX=Weather Information?)

comment Secret Token URL Placement
@hauptbenutzer: Haha, that's my default test image. It used to be a smiley face but I'd used that too often so it was getting confusing seeing it everywhere. So I grumpied him up a bit.

comment TAB functionality in SE when editing code — What's the UX view on it?
This is really just your individual opinion. You mention a lot of 'I' and 'me' here, but you are but one person. A small use-case that involves you writing code in a text field is made slightly less convenient because you can't use the TAB button in the way you can in a dedicated editor application. What about all the other web users out there? The users who browse with keyboard only? They'd be stuck in that text field forever! And those who require screen-readers to access the web? How would they know what's going on?

I've moved this to the main site. While it is about Stack Exchange software, the general concept and answers are going to be about the User Experience practices, and therefore useful to a wider variety of people outside of just those interested in how Stack Exchange operates.

comment Should I have both username and email for registration/sign up?
Would the 'pen name' have to be unique? There are many sites (Stack Exchange being one of them) where usernames are not unique. But in such situations you cannot log in with that username, only with email (or openID).

comment Online shop ideas advices
Your edit has just made this question more confusing, rather than the opposite I'm afraid. You've made it even broader. We can't tell you if you need everything on your ecommerce site - every site is different, has different business requirements, different products etc. But if you have one single, specific question (such as 'should the basket option in the header show a total quantity of all the products in it, or just the number of different types of items in it') then that is a specific answerable question. See: How To Ask Questions.

comment Are there studies about software ergonomics with data glasses?
What is it specifically you need to know about these glasses? Questions need to be based on a particular problem you have that needs solving, so just asking for general ergonomic studies is a bit broad. Can you define the actual issue you have and we can help you with answers to that.
