comment How much does a DITA solution cost?
You're not asking about technical writing: your asking about the price and hosting of software. I don't know where such questions are suitable, but not on any of the stack exchange sites.

comment How much does a DITA solution cost?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about purchasing software not solving user experience problems.

comment Make user aware that he cannot enter arbitrary values into textbox?
It's not just faq or help pages people don't read, it's most of the content on all pages they don't read. The more text on screen the less of it gets read.

comment Auto Suggest for very slow internet connections
This isn't a UX question because you've already decided what the User Experience answer is: you want to provide auto suggest. What you're asking here is how to implement that UX solution, so you've moved on from the scope of this site at that point. We can help with what to implement, but how you implement it is out of scope here.

comment Why do some users complete forms all in capital letters?
This doesn't explain why they want to type in caps in the first place.

comment How to compare two items in a small space?
This is a bit unclear. Can you give us more details? What are you comparing? Pictures? Specifications? Can you show us an example of what you've currently tried and why it isn't suitable.

comment General strategy on help
Then that is what the comments field is for. Leave a comment against answers or your own question. That's what they're for. Answers are for answers only,which is why is a Q&A format site, not a forum.

comment General strategy on help
Please don't put commentary about the question and answers within answers themselves. Reserve the answer option exclusively for answering and nothing more. There is no problem answering your own question, provided that it is an answer.

comment How best to let users know that the site is responsive, that it should run well on desktops, tablets and mobiles?
Why do you feel you need to indicate this? You don't do such messages for "works on Android and Windows". Chances are people don't even care - they just want it to work on wherever device they're using, so trekking them it works on other things is not really necessary.

How does someone on a tablet trigger the hover?

comment Why are Inverted Colors considered an accessibility feature?
Do you have any links to such reading studies? If you're referencing studies you should really link to them too.

comment Make people understand they can click on a button in a flat design
This isn't really answering the question. You haven't said why this is suitable. Imagine a work situation and someone has been asked to provide a button design - they provide this, they're asked why they've chosen it and their answer would be...?

comment Picking a hymn with a minimum numbers of clicks from main menu
In that case your question should state that it is a speed issue, not a click one. For instance I could do a 3-clicks system that could take 5 minutes to use! (I'd be a bad UX designer if I did that, but still...)

comment Point and click or arrow key/wasd game movement?
Why not both? Some people like mouse, some people like keyboard. I shouldn't think it's too hard to set it up to work for both.

comment How to display a date?
In what context? If you're filing for a divorce it's going to be one format, but showing your birthday off on Facebook is likely to be another. Context is key here.

comment Point and click or arrow key/wasd game movement?
What sort of game is it? If it's Tetris then keyboard will be better, but if it's a drawing game then mouse is better. Context is key here.

comment iPhone app - Assign 15 people to event from a pool of 550
I've put the question on hold for the time being until you're able to provide more detail. Once you've done so we can reopen this question for you.

comment iPhone app - Assign 15 people to event from a pool of 550
Can you show us what you have so far? It's very light on details so we don't have anywhere to start from. More description would help too.

comment Can we expect users to close popovers by just clicking away?
What reason would you have for not including a close button?
