comment Multi-column articles
I noticed you added that comment about what's wrong with this specific article (lack of "background enclosure") to your answer too, thanks. So even alternating colours / zebra-striped columns would fulfill that

I really like this answer. "you might want to break with this convention to underline individuality" Yes! Horizontal scrolling would suit I guess. Thanks for the options, I feel like others are just giving the general best practices on line-length, etc. which doesn't really answer the question specifically about multi-column articles and this specific article under debate.

Hmm. As far as I can tell then you're not even saying media is the key here; you're suggesting rows over column. Am I right? Or you're saying use columns but with no text blocks which can be read in more than one order?

comment How can I highlight errors when bright red is the main color of the brand?
@3nafish Don't worry; "The comments below suggest" we have a sense of humout. That's all.

comment Is it a bad idea to use grey buttons?
As @zzzzBov said. Also, let's not forget that buttons are grey by default! I would advise going for a lighter grey though (like the Add Comment button below)

@rk I think the border-colour also depends whether or not the field has a required attribute

Yes, <blink> and it should flicker between italic and normal style font

comment Why would a web site hide the log out button?
Actually, staying logged in seriously increased the changes of a CSRF / confused deputy attack where you might think you're taking an action on a site but really you're clicking an action on Facebook which is in a transparent frame above what you see, for example

comment Are hover states necessary?
Good point on progressive enhancement. I'd add one more thing to "You shouldn't have to click something to find out if it's a button." though; you shouldn't have to hover over something to find find out if it's a button.

comment How to avoid 12:00 AM midnight/noon confusion in a time input field?
My idea is similar; when they select 12, show a subtle moon / sun icon as a visual hint

comment Should a button become lighter or darker on hover?
I agree with @KevinBurke. Also, definitely make sure that your mouse pointer changes on hover. It pisses me off when a site doesn't implement that (I'm looking at you Scrumwise)
