comment My boss has a different idea of a website's UX
@novina that comment was made over 4 years ago! While Silverlight is at the end of its life the sentiment of the comment still holds true.

comment What is the maximum simultaneous users that interact with a multi touch overlay device?
@JonW - I was going to add something about touching on specific places on the screen, but I thought I'd leave it more general - but that's also a possibility.

Can you explain why you recommend this?

comment What's the optimal order of choices within a combo box drop down?
@Leths - Hmm - I hadn't considered using something other than a drop down for this. The ability to add new roles is a new feature that hasn't been implemented yet, so there is the opportunity to change the UI here.

comment Can the “$” symbol be safely considered as universal when making a graphic depicting money?
@Taemyr Indeed. I had to localise my company's app to display the currency symbol appropriate to the locale and at one point did consider using the generic currency symbol, but decided against it because no one would know what it meant.

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.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about terminology not UX.

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.
