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 Is it really a bad thing to place an ad TV in front of the stairs?
If you have a suggestion on what is best (e.g. the way the London Underground handles advertising at speed), then you need to expand on exactly what they do, and explain why you feel it's a good solution.

comment How to indicate that an element is “new” in a list
Please expand on why you recommend that so that people can understand your reasoning.

comment Using web fonts in email templates
I read this to be about the UX impact of an implementation choice, rather than an implementation, so I consider it on topic.

comment Are there any best practices to help your users install your Firefox extension?
It seems that you're asking for a technically different way, rather than a UX question on what the way should be. That makes it outside of the scope of this site, and something you should probably ask on StackOverflow.com

comment What are the possible/best ways to allow a production mobile app to switch API endpoint to a development server?
The question has to be dealt with from a UX perspective as the other solutions typically involve a non-production app.

comment What's the better design approach? Displaying existing data along with the simple search OR just a simple search for choosing the existing data
@SivaKiran Right now it's unclear what you're asking exactly. When asking questions about interface options, a picture is worth a thousand words. So rather show some mockups of what you're referring to than try to describe them. In the mean time I'm putting the question on hold as unclear, but if you make it clear, it can then be reopened.

comment Material Design CSS specifications
This is definitely off topic, but I'm not sure what site to migrate it to. I'm putting it on hold for now, but I'll try find out where to migrate it to in the mean time.

comment Tab or window for multiple open apps?
@Mahdy I've tried to clean up the question as well as I can with the limited information given. But even now it's only borderline clear, so please add more information to it.

comment Chart “Plan” Versus “Actual” for a time series?
I have to agree with @EvilClosetMonkey. If it were about the design of a given type of chart, it would be better on graphic design. However this is about visualisation and how to communicate a concept, so I think it's a valid UX question.

comment Display pricing with options
Your question comes across as a site review - which isn't allowed. Please think of the specific UX problem that you have and rephrase the question to focus on that, rather than a broad "how can I make this better" sort of question.

comment Should a web-based UI rely on the browser back button?
You've stated a lot of this as absolutes without giving any reasoning why. I'm nod disagreeing with you, but please edit your question to include the reasoning behind the suggestions.

comment Is it a good idea to check if user has already registered an iCloud email and alert if they have?
I'll bet you a large pile of cash that at least one of the few million iCloud users has an email address of the form me@.... Add to that list: john, mary, steve, bob, ivan, etc.

comment Is it a good idea to check if user has already registered an iCloud email and alert if they have?
I had to read util the edit to even know the context of this question. Please edit the question so that it starts off by giving the context so that it makes sense to other users.

comment Form field border width for colorblind people
I fail to see the UX question in here. Would you please expand on it?

comment Asking feedback and contact data after leaving signup form
Recording unsubmitted form data is a huge privacy breach. I strongly advise against this.

comment How are “focus groups” done?
You're asking a question that would need an answer in the form of a book. That isn't the idea behind this site. If you have a question about a specific part of focus groups, I encourage you to ask about that area specifically.

comment Hiding a phone number during nighttime hours
@DA01 It's an issue of how to convey certain information or achieve a given goal on an interface. UX includes the non-user stakeholders to me - although I will conceded that UX isn't universally viewed this way.

comment Implementing a 'ViewCube' for 3d navigation
I suggest that you focus the question on 3D navigation rather than the 'ViewCube'. The title makes the question appear to be about implementation which would make it off topic.

comment Show submit button only after the form has been validated?
It's similar, but I agree that the change in the focus changes the answers. @Gazta please make this somewhat more explicit in your question to avoid confusion.

comment Is it okay to allow customers to create an account with hyphen(-) and underscore(_) in the email address at the end of username?
@Jigar The gist seems to be that it's going to be used in an email address, and that is where the issue lies.
