comment How do you reduce the number of emails users send you?
This seems to be a reformulated version of meta.SO "How can we get people to search for answers on this site instead of posting the same stuff all over again, having to close them as duplicates". Well, no one over there found a solution yet..

comment How to show user that page objects automatically update
It currently experiences technical difficulties, what did you do? ;) I remember some website that did a "pulsing" of the price to very light green while trading was active, and when an ask/bid/trade came in, it was pulsing to a bright green for a longer moment.

You might find some inspiration on financial websites that update stock information "realtime".

Which will then probably lead to the OP asking what colors to make the icons...

comment Should you ever disable search on pages with user entered information?
You could maybe store the information as temporary information after the search is done and "resurrect" it when the user revisits the edit dialogue

comment Determining small information display duration
Nice, although I will have to evaluate if we can add a button. Maybe I can repurpose the lcds shielding as a button, even with gloves only about half of it would be covered when pressing. For the transition from scan to manual, would you give any recommendation on if the first manual should always show the same thing, or if it should be a "fast forward" of the current scan mode state?

comment Why don't ATMs show blank arrows for unused buttons?
I have seen this being done (although not with arrows but empty "button labels"). Also the alignment issue is on old ATMs mostly due to different height of people, thus different view angles. I have less problems with this than my wife.

comment Login and Register in one form
On almost all sites that have similar things (e.g. amazon) I almost always accidentally try to sign up for a new account and am being told that the username is already taken...

comment Should I show the troll that I know he's trolling?
It is surely a nice game for the troll to try hard to evade the system when it gives the feedback. Maybe add some "trolling success" message when he finally gets there? ^^

comment Why do financial institutions use usernames instead of emails for login?
I hate all the sites that want emails as usernames. You know, maybe peoples emails change or so...

comment How many clicks is too few?
Depending on what the site is about, your "power users" might get really angry at you.

comment Should I use pagination for longreads?
Please don't, I hate it when on all those news sites you think you read something just to discover a "click here to continue" link.

comment Will forcing response time to the average time as a minimum improve UX?
Can you estimate how long the call will probably take? Depending on what kind of service this is you provide, stating a bit about the why can make users be more lenient, since they mostly know that complex things might take more time. Like a "[ ] frobincate query (slow)" tickbox or so, if applicable.

comment When should I use the “no-access” prompt rather than just hiding the button?
Note that when you are not logged in, these buttons will do the additional action of trying to log you in

comment Is it safe to assume everyone uses / has mouse wheels?
No. All my laptops don't have one. They don't even have a mouse. Worse are my phones and tablets.

comment Why do door knobs still exist?
I still think those are not big enough (dis)advantages that any side switches to the other; people use them because people around them use them.
