comment Implement gamification on Time reporting to minimize late reports?
As grumpy as this answer seems, it's a really interesting point. How do you motivate the bottom? Perhaps rather than a single high-score list that compares all to all, you somehow make it relative to peers, or only compare yourself to yourself and encourage improvement.

comment What is the name of this kind of pattern/component?
Might only work on initial signup? I just did this on math.se without problem or delay.

A snake eating it's tail would make a good image below a simple explanation.

comment How can I maintain usability on a slow system?
How bad? 6 seconds? 60 seconds? 600 seconds? (Realizing it varies.)

comment What the best way to allow a user to re order items in a large list
This is a bit tricky to imagine - can you whip up a mockup?

comment What the best way to allow a user to re order items in a large list
"More fine grained ordering" - I wonder if simply "starring" favorites, then keeping them permanently fixed at the top (or provide a link to filter by fave) would suffice - see GMail. Starring is pretty easily understood these days.

comment How should a website's title be structured?
Excellent question! Also, is there distinctions between single-page apps vs. traditionally paged sites? There's also the question of all the places the title might be consumed - in bookmark lists, for instance - not just the primary browser-tab experience.

comment When to save data?
Lovely answer. I would only add that another factor to consider is whether a given document can be edited by multiple users - usually another reason to lean towards auto-save.

comment Is changing a checkbox label's function to invoke an informational popover confusing?
You could use hover/tooltip instead. Or (?) icons as the click target.

If you went this route, I'd still recommend flipping it as I showed to be more easily understood. (With an explicit warning in place, I should think you've acheieved the desired discouragement.)
