A man with far too many questions trying to work out how the world works.

My primary interests are in UX and education as a whole - specifically in finding ways of improving or remaking the education system so that it is still appropriate to the world we will live in at the time that students graduate.

comment What's the difference between 'sign up' and 'sign in' with Facebook?
@rewobs I take it as the implied question. Only here a specific service is being named rather than a generic statement.

@ToniLeigh You're right. I'll mark it as a duplicate.

comment What's the difference between 'sign up' and 'sign in' with Facebook?
@rewobs how users understand a common interaction is relevant to UX. But I agree that whether it's Facebook or not is less relevant.

comment Do we still need to add custom back buttons to our design?
@RumiP. I agree, which is why I never said that a back button should be used, only that the browser back button shouldn't be relied on for site navigation. What type of site navigation to use is outside the scope of this question.

comment Choosing which easing to use in interactions? Any Standard?
While those are both good links for further information, could you please also answer the question on this site. Simple links to resources aren't an answer.

comment Editing functionalities in a voting system
@AldourCheng I'm not sure what other voting apps do. Some may violate this, but then they are giving their users false statistics.

comment How can I make users more aware about tools and products a site offer?
Welcome to UX.se Aravindh. Unfortunately your question amounts to a site review, and that is not allowed on this site. If you're struggling with a specific UX issue, I suggest posing that question in a way that would be useful to other people too.

comment What are some best practices for UI design in virtual reality?
@SolCrenshaw I'm closing this for now, but once you've edited it, let me know either in chat or by mentioning me in a comment here and I'll re-evaluate it.

comment Limits on version numbers
While I agree with you 100% from a developers point of view, your post doesn't answer the question. The issue is how users will perceive large version numbers.

comment What are some best practices for UI design in virtual reality?
Welcome to UX.se. While the topic is interesting, I'm afraid that the question as it stands doesn't lend itself to answering as it's too broad. Please edit it down to a specific question or it is likely to be closed.

comment Is the discount more important than the price?
@TheForestAndTheTrees In this case I was basing it on internal A/B testing in a large multinational over a sample set of about 50k. I don't have any academic studies to support that claim though.

comment Why are calculator screen digits right-aligned?
Although interesting, this is devolving into a discussion. Please take it to the UX chat room.

comment Is the discount more important than the price?
@gerrit Last I checked AH, they still had it. Often only at the larger stores though.

@JonStory That is a good point. I'll add it to the list.

comment What should a good error email look like?
Never underestimate those pesky positrons :-) And thanks for the vote.

comment How easy to read are small caps vs lower case?
@anaximander I missed that. However I have a policy not to undertake any UX projects on behalf of Death... She never pays on time.

comment A better name for “Non Archived” entries
@Tzach You don't have to name where you're going in that case, just name where you're leaving. "Exit recycle bin" or "leave archives" are all more clear than trying to name the unnamed.

comment Websites these days > are they using templates?
@NickG I'm afraid that I'm not sure which StackExchange site would be most suited. The best is to ask in the webmasters.stackexchange chat room and see what they suggest.

comment Websites these days > are they using templates?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this isn't a UX question, but rather a question about what templates various sites use.

comment How to design a physical device?
While I agree that it is somewhat broad, I believe the answer could also be at a fairly high level and still cover the topic. It's definitely better after the edit.
