comment Is clockwise or counter-clockwise rotated text easier to read?
Good observation about the country the subjects come from jk ! however it doesn't seem to line up with the spine preference for America given in one of the other answers.

comment How to evaluate average results on an UX survey?
For a lot of usability problems users will just 'get used to it' over time and it will become the 'new normal'. (and if there were any 'showstopper' problems these will have been fixed). So over time it will become average.

comment How to find the target user groups for an app?
With these 'for everybody' applications the simplest way to split up the user base is to get a spread of different age groups.

comment Alternative term to “Blacklist” and “Whitelist”
You could drop the 'list' terminology altogether. Then you have a 'Block Feature' and an 'Allow Feature'

comment So are there “standards” for UX?
I've also had these ongoing requests for 'standards' - I think it comes up if you're dealing with part of a business which is very 'standards' driven.

comment Is the logo good enough to use as a link back to the main menu for a childrens website?
"Choose Turmeric" is on the veg quiz (which I had a play with). Math is on the left hand menu.

comment Is the logo good enough to use as a link back to the main menu for a childrens website?
Totally off topic - but I think asking kids to spot the potato and then to 'choose Turmeric' - is rather muddling the levels of hardness. And for a UK site it's Maths not Math.

comment What UX metrics can I get from a web application?
If you can, try to round up some users and run you own 'focus group'. You'll probably have to bribe users in some way to get them to turn up. (Not as good as getting the professionals to do it - but cheaper and better than nothing at all).

comment Microsoft Visual Studio 11 - why would they use uppercase in UI?
A note on capitalisation: webstyleguide.com/wsg3/8-typography/5-typographic-emphasis.html We read primarily by recognizing the overall shape of words, not by parsing each letter and then assembling a recognizable word. Words formed with capital letters are monotonous rectangles that offer few distinctive shapes to catch the eye (fig. 8.11). Illustrative images on link.

There should be some overlap on guidelines for issuing passwords where you'll get the same problems with ambiguous characters.
