comment how to design the launch page for jquery mobile application
We can't really give reviews of interfaces. We need to have a particular problem that needs solving, and you've not really explained what the problem is here, so we don't have anything to base the solution on.

comment Persona examples / case study?
This isn't really an answerable question. Asking for "some worldwide know examples" is more a question for a discussion forum, not a Q&A forum. See the tour page for more advice on the type of questions that work well here.

comment Designing Dashboard
This is quite a broad question. What is it specifically about dashboards you want advice with? As per the help centre: "Your questions should be reasonably scoped. If you can imagine an entire book that answers your question, you’re asking too much."

"user would rather have a dialog than see multiple buttons on the same page" - Why do you say this?

comment Forms with Remember Me or Save for Later
Quite a long post here, and much of it is really comment on the question and other answers rather than a unique answer in its own right (after all, this is a Q&A site, not a forum). But you make some interesting points really. However I would dispute your assurance that modals are the best thing to do here. They're not very accessible, and they aren't really that mobile friendly either. I am also not sure they add to the general UX as it adds in a whole extra dialog to what is really a simple process. Are you sure that forcing a modal on people is what they want?

comment Top-down hamburger menu / is it a cool experience regarding my application?
Are they 'shocked' in that they don't know how to use it? Do they still recognise it as an icon that triggers a menu to appear?

comment What should be the default selection for a civilité (title/salutation) field?
Can you provide more detail here? I've no idea what it is you're asking about. Do you have a screenshot?

comment When is using haptic feedback for button presses a good idea?
While you make some good points here, a lot of it is verging on Apple Fanboy-ism (I'm not sure it's accurate to state that Apple were the founders of on-screen keyboards, nor that you should primarily look at what Apple are doing). However your points about sweeping and vibration together not being the best of friends is a very good point. As too is the issue of considering devices that don't have vibration features. One other question though - can you expand on what you mean by 'Use it as an accessibility extra feature"?

comment Require input if there are any
Does your client realise that whatever solution you come up with, someone could easily claim they don't have an email address when they actually do, but just don't want to provide it?

comment What is the best strategy for playing a video embedded on a webpage to provide the optimal user experience?
The YouTube.com website doesn't auto play. Nothing autoplays until the visitor chooses to access a specific piece of content - ie opening a link to a specific video.

comment What are the best UX design books/articles/videos?
Hi Den. I'm afraid questions requesting recommendations for books etc aren't really on topic for this site these days. However there are plenty of older questions that should give you some pointers.

comment How to handle rating indicator when no one has rated yet?
Are you suggesting showing a ratio of 0:0 as well as the text of 'be the first to rate this product'?

What do you mean 'best suggested way'? Can you expand on what it is you're trying to achieve here?

comment Does the padlock icon make users perceive your site as safer?
Do you have any studies you can cite that support this? Generally if you're referring to studies / testing then you should post links to such research.

comment Using funny error messages in Finance
Have you got an example of what you mean by 'funny language'? Are we talking something like "LOL, U haz no monies left"? (because I hope not)

comment How should Likert scale options be ordered?
As was pointed out in a comment on an answer of mine recently, there is a strong bias towards options on the left of the scale. Presumably Apple want people to rate things as Positive, so have skewed the scale accordingly.

comment Why has Amazon not significantly changed their design in years?
I've put this post on hold. Asking why some company hasn't done something isn't answerable with a correct answer, not unless the UX designer from Amazon global happens to be a member here and sees the question. Because of that all these questions will achieve is to be discussion topics, not questions with actual answers. And discussions are better suited to forums than Q&A sites.

comment 0 to 10 rating system alternative
I've cleaned out much of the discussion comments from here. It's way too much noise for readers to have to wade through. I suggest moving to User Experience Chat if you want to discuss this answer, or posting new suggestions as answers instead of long comment discussions.

comment Corporate/Enterprise section
How do you know you need a new homepage? How did that requirement come about? Knowing that would help with determining what the homepage needs to do.

comment Is a colour contrast compliant if it passes WCAG but fails the earlier W3C test used on Snook.ca?
The older W3C guideline is from year 2000. Technology has moved on quite a bit since then. Pixel density, monitor clarity etc are all far better now than they were back then. While I don't know the answer to your question (it is an interesting one though) I'd hypothesize that general improvements in hardware have played their part.
