comment Best way to represent product catalogue?
Why is the PM making comments like this? Isn't that for you and the client to decide on?

comment On a marketplace website, what would be a good way to signal sellers that a certain item is in high demand?

comment Should a toggle button show its current state or the state to which it will change?
There is now a 4th edition of this book too: amazon.com/About-Face-Essentials-Interaction-Design/dp/…

comment Should I hide the details of banned users?
There might be legal ramifications to not allowing banned people access to their details. That's something I'd want to confirm if it were me building this.

comment Is there an analytics tool that does not sample?
Sorry, but questions requesting recommendations for products/tools/books/papers etc would be classified as a shopping request and not really suitable to a Q&A site. There is no correct answer, and any relevant answers will become obsolete and replaced over time making such posts less and less useful.

comment Axure: Is there a way to swap objects on mouse enter?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is an Axure support question, it isn't a UX question needing solving. It's better asked on the actual Axure forum.

comment Why should our website be made handicap accessible?
What about someone who broke their wrist in an accident? Or someone who left their glasses at home that morning? They count as non-disabled but if they can't access the site from keyboard-only, or if the font can't be easily ready then they won't use your site either. Don't just assume accessibility only applies to persons with permanent physical disabilities.

comment is horizontal swipe intuitive enough on mobile
A very much agree with your summary of the usefulness of the scrollbar, but I'm not sure that a faded item does clearly say "there's more stuff over here". That part of your answer is very much assumption so that would need to be tested before being able to state that so firmly.

comment Should bulk-editing functions be hidden until a table row is selected, or is there a better solution?
I edited your title a bit. It was more of a discussion topic than an answerable question previously, but feel free to edit it if I've not got it perfect. We need quetsions that are more explicitly answerable and less of a discussion trigger.

comment Common keyboard shortcuts for formatting
While this list may be useful, it isn't really the sort of post that works on StackExchange sites. We're here to have a list of UX questions and their solutions. This is more of a blog article than a question. Community Wiki posts are not really used across the network anymore, save for on the Meta community sites because they don't adhere to the Q&A format the sites are based around.

Is it causing any negatives by being there on the desktop?

comment Should modal dialogs be movable?
I've cleaned up these comments as it was turning into more of a discussion. Please move over to User Experience Chat if you wish to continue. Keep comments directly related to the answer, requesting clarification or making suggestions.

I have removed the comments here. This is not the place for extended discussions. Please use the User Experience Chat if you wish to continue.

comment How do you make a range input / slider accessible to screen readers for blind UX
@DA01 yup. We just did some usability testing and found just that too.

comment Do disabled buttons still need to be contrast compliant for accessibility?
@JonasDralle I'm not suggesting having a colourblind inaccessible site as a whole, my concern is with inactive buttons only and whether their colour contrast could be considered an accessibility fail. We're not serving up less content to colourblind users - there is messaging on the page to inform them of missing functionality - and to make disabled buttons more accessibly in contrast may mean that fully sighted users (which make up the majority) do not realise the option is disabled, therefore being a worse experience for more users.

comment Controlling movement direction in isometric view
@NathanRabe True. That's why FPS games have in-game options screen where you can flip with Y axis controls. Something similar should be added to this game too.

comment Controlling movement direction in isometric view
Yeah, maybe my wording is a bit clunky (and I went with Camel Case too for some crazy reason) but perhaps just "Use the cursor keys to move towards the mcguffin" would work too.

comment Help on placing controls
Can you elaborate a bit on this? It's a bit low on details - when you say 'controls' I assume you mean the Insert / Clear buttons? and what is it about them that you don't think is working?

comment Do disabled buttons still need to be contrast compliant for accessibility?
You make a good point though. Just because something officially / legally ticks all the boxes, that isn't going to help those individuals who get into difficulty as a result of a design decision. They won't care the site is 100% AA compliant if they can't do something they wanted to.
