comment Attaching files other than pictures to a mobile form
In that case I've amended the question part of your post to tighten it up. Just asking 'what are your thoughts' isn't really a question that has an answer, so hopefully this is a bit more concrete, but feel free to edit if you want to amend my update.

comment Multiple vs single field capture for phone number form input
This is just re-iterating my own answer. Please don't duplicate other answers unless you have something new or can expand / enhance such posts. Otherwise we'll just get people saying exactly the same thing in 100s of different ways.

comment Attaching files other than pictures to a mobile form
Is your question basically "What do users on mobile expect to happen when clicking an 'Attach' button"?

comment Multiple vs single field capture for phone number form input
@TRiG Some people may know about stripping the preceeding 0 off, some wouldn't. But that's the point - as the developer we would be able to programatically tell that the 0 is superfluous and can therefore be removed.

comment Multiple vs single field capture for phone number form input
Yeah, people don't read hints / error messages really. Just let them type whatever they want and then strip out all the irrelevant characters afterwards. Saves all that bother.

comment How to show two brands of the same business in the navigation in one website?
They only use the hamburger once you've scrolled down as they use it as part of a fixed header. It's a standard menu when you're at the top of each page. Even on mobile. It may not be perfect, but it is an example that seems directly similar to your situation.

Have a look at how web agency Headscape have handled the co-brand of Headscape and Boagworld. They even wrote a blog post about the design challenges. It's a responsive site too.

comment How do users react to a browser request for geolocation?
You may be right, but there are some assumptions here. Do you know younger users are less reticent to accept, for example?

comment What is the reverse of an Unsubscribe?
I don't think that works in this context though. Just an 'undo' button? How would the user know what the are undoing?

comment How do I create professional, clean Software Demo GIFs?
This isn't a UX question. You've already decided what User Experience you want to provide - animated gif instructions - and now you're at the implementation stage, which falls outside the scope of this site I'm afraid.

comment Best practice for desktop application input validation
It is a UX question, but this is not a UX answer. You have not detailed the User Experience that would be present. You have only included comment that WPF is nice for programmers (which is irrelevant to this UX question) and then given some implementation advice (which is off topic for this UX stack exchange site) and have included a link; but not stated what part of that link is relevant, or why.

comment Best practice for desktop application input validation
None of this post actually answers the question asked. "Do we change the values from incorrect ones to a default correct one?" All you have done is say 'do what microsoft do' but then not actually explained what that is and why it is appropriate. (Adding a link and expecting everyone to click through to it and find the answer themselves doesn't really qualify as an answer in its own right, it's just a link).

comment When having an option for Landscape mode, what all screen elements should be retained? All, none or selectively?
There is no correct answer here. It's going to depend a lot on how many elements are present on your design, what type of application / site it is, how large the imagery is, what dimensions the device is, what the screen resolution is... It's different for all situations so there is no correct answer aside from; if everything looks crap at a certain dimension then put a breakpoint in and rearrange the content so it doesn't look crap anymore.

comment Drag and drop between two List<string>
This isn't a User Experience question, you already know what the UX is that you want to provide (i.e. drag and drop). What you're asking here is how to implement it. That's not what we're here for I'm afraid.

comment What is the best picture for Car Insurance and Loan eye catchers?
This isn't really a User Experience question. It's going to depend on your brand strategy and marketing direction. And even then there isn't a 'correct' answer. If there were then everyone would use the same image.

This was already suggestetd in a comment against the question.

comment Alternatives to tooltips in tablets?
While that may well be a technical way of displaying tooltips, I'm not sure it's particularly discoverable by the user. For example - how would the user know that one button has a tooltip and another doesn't?

comment User Interface for Role Management
Can you edit and re-upload those images? They're tiny because you've left loads of white-space on the right of them.

comment How do adverts in a list view affect user behaviour?
That is as may be, but it's not really an answer to the question. Otherwise "do an AB test" would just be a valid answer to 99% of the posts on this site.

comment Chat / drawing game user interface flow
How many chat rooms is 'several'? Because the first thought is just to segment the basic chat screen into columns / rows and have each 'cell' as one chat window. But if you're expecting people to be simultaneously in 10 rooms at once then that's a bit trickier to design.
