comment How to intentionally make an action difficult to do?
Can you elaborate on your specific situation, rather than just a broad overview? We're here to answer specific questions, rather than just give broad feedback. That way a specific answer can be given to your situation which will help people with similar queries. A broad, loose question will result in broad, loose answers that aren't really suitable solutions to problems.

comment Is there any visual card-sorting tool?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a request for product reviews / recommendations; it isn't a User Experience problem that needs solving.

comment Should a responsive sticky side menu stay sticky at high resolution?
@MikeMilla I know code in answers is allowed, I'm just saying it's not really suitable for this stackexchange site. We focus on what should be implemented, not how to implement it.

comment Should a responsive sticky side menu stay sticky at high resolution?
@Celos Ah yes, fair point. I've reworded that line to make a bit more sense!

comment Should a responsive sticky side menu stay sticky at high resolution?
I'm afraid I would disagree with much of this. One of the benefits of responsive design is that you don't need to provide the same experience to users on different sized displays; you can cater the experience to the device being used. (Also, this is a UX Q&A site, not a development one, so no need to go into development advice here. Stick to the reasoning behind UX decisions, not providing implementation advice. Save that for StackOverflow)

comment Should a responsive sticky side menu stay sticky at high resolution?
@Celos Saving the user time is generally a good idea, but yes, it is ambiguous because it isn't always true. But for this situation I would say that it is. There is no benefit to the user for having to take longer to view and use the menu.

comment Should a web app remember your accessibility settings after login?
I think you'll find that most people that like to have specific accessibility settings will have already set it at browser-level, long before reaching your site, so to be honest it probably doesn't matter which option you go for here.

comment Is it problematic to have dropdown selector options expand above the field instead of below?
@DaveHaigh Yes, that is true. But often both are the same thing (assuming people have browsers full-screen).

comment Why is the I-beam pointer shaped the way it is?
Just to be pedantic - it's a hypothesis, not a theory.

comment Muting mouse click on specific part of tablet screen
@Xabre it isn't suitable for there. For one thing there is no code in this question that OP is trying to get working. If this were posted there is get closed off and downvoted and OP would say "why did this downvoted? I was told to post it here?" That happens every day.

comment Muting mouse click on specific part of tablet screen
@Xabre this is even more off topic for StackOverflow than it is for here. Please don't suggest people post questions to sites that you yourself don't have an understanding of suitable content for.

comment Muting mouse click on specific part of tablet screen
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a request for software recommendations, it isn't a UX question.

comment How can I make it extremely clear that the user needs to take one last action?
Please add some more details here. Don't just suggest a brief idea, state why you're suggesting it.

comment Will voice based interaction kill GUI?
I've marked this as a duplicate, but really it's a bit too much of an opinion based question to have a single correct answer.

comment Using slider to answer a survey question with options
Why has the client given you specifications (i.e. specified how to do something)? Shouldn't they just give you requirements and then you determine the best specification for it? I would go back to the client and ask what the business requirement is that requires it be a slider with empty labels. Because the problem is with the requirement, not the solution (you've done exactly as they requested).

comment How did this guy animate this UI project for presentation?
What software / technique someone used to build something is not a User Experience issue. Please take the tour to learn more about questions that fit this Stack Exchange site.

comment Which accordion Identifiers work best?
@DasBeasto no published studies I'm afraid. Just the result of usability testing that had been done on projects I work on. We've tried various layouts for these and found this to cause the fewest issues. All expanding content will cause some people confusion though. That's just what comes from hiding content from view - not everyone will realise there is content there to expand.

comment Is “user-select: none” bad UX?
@insidesin that is a fair point. It's all about balancing one against the other really. So I guess the actual answer is the standard UX answer to everything: "It Depends".

comment Is “user-select: none” bad UX?
With things like this I like to apply the thought exercise of worst case impact. If someone wants to select the text but can't is that worse than a user who didn't want to select the text but does so accidentally? User A obviously has a reason for wanting to do it, and you're preventing them from doing so, and they have no alternative. User B has accidentally done something that is easily reversible.
