comment Does it make sense to authenticate a user when he/she provides existing valid credentials while registering?
The problem with this is that you are telling potential hackers that "example@example.com" is a valid user on the system. They can they go about trying to guess/social engineer the password.

comment Quantifying discoverability on where or how information is found, presented
In the How to Ask section of the "ask question" page there's a link to the help. There you will find the links to the information you require. If you think that these links should be more prominent then come up with a positive solution and ask on Meta Stack Exchange.

comment Combining all the address fields into one?
@theotherone - my experience probably comes from the fact that I live near a large city. However, your experience doesn't contradict mine - the required fields are forcing you to enter more information that you strictly need to.

comment Tackling the shopping cart abandonment rate
@Ria - It's not unique. You need to have some way of verifying that the person coming in to pick up the goods is the person who ordered (and possibly even paid) or their authorised representative.

comment What should replace a space in a api url?
It doesn't really matter. As long as you are consistent people won't mind.

comment Tackling the shopping cart abandonment rate
@Paul- yes you could. I suppose it would depend on things like the value of the goods being bought etc as to whether extra security information was required.

comment What should be fetched if you “Search” with a blank query?
@Omid - I disagree. I'm not talking about absolute values here. Examples would be: A personal address book of 10s of entries is small and should return all entries if no search criteria is set. A shop's inventory of 1,000s of items is large and should probably return nothing. Implementation wise both are the same thing, but they are treated differently in your application.

comment What should be fetched if you “Search” with a blank query?
@Omid - Well it depends. With a small dataset and if the idea of returning everything is "sensible" I don't see why a user would be confused.

comment Where can I find an official set of iOS (specifically iPad) icons and stencil sets?
Questions asking us to recommend or find a tool, library or favorite off-site resource are off-topic for Stack Exchange as they tend to attract opinionated answers and spam. Instead, describe the problem and what has been done so far to solve it.

comment How could petrol forecourts be designed to improve efficiency?
@Urbycoz - I suspect that this is the case. People's behaviour is very hard to change.

comment How could petrol forecourts be designed to improve efficiency?
@Urbycoz pumps in the UK are now advertised has having "extra long hoses" so you can reach across to the other side of the car should you have to pull up to the "wrong" side of a pump. Of course it would be better if all cars had the filler cap on the same side.

comment Should websites require e-mail addresses?
@Revolt - well Stack Overflow succeeded. If you can find ways to address the issues that the other reasons address then go with no e-mail.
