comment Is there a minimum viable number of personas you could use?
It depends... on the data that is backing the personas. However I think two extreme personas and the assumption that 'catering for both would meet in some middle ground that covers the corpus' might be a an invalid theory for many cases! I'd suggest not having the 'extreme' personas sitting so close to the end of a long data tail, and at least a third which uses the researched evidence to represent the corpus and is identified as the 'primary' persona.

comment The coding monkey dilemma
@PariyaKashfi The FoolProof link above recognizes that this is the case and that it's no easy task but does suggest that the 'UX Champions' can try to act as 'agents of change' in trying to improve the situation where it matters.

comment When should a text input be auto selected?
Well said. Only by an unbiased introspective look at the reasoning and the clear benefits can a decision be made, and whilst we can help provide the framework for understanding this, it's bound to hinge on generalisations unless we have all the pertinent facts. As a result, only the OP can answer his own question for their own scenario.

comment How long should a temporary notification appear?
@Bluewater My answer didn't set out to 'prove a best solution'. I said 'For what it's worth...' and stated facts about what I did and what the users said afterwards. Is that a -1 situation?

comment At what point should an application change the cursor to an hourglass or display a progress bar?
While this OP may not have an option in this particular scenario, my own opinion is that in the bigger scheme of things, the better direction to explore in is whether the application can show something useful and relevant instead of going into a blocking mode, so that users can get on with their tasks and feel like they are continually making progress at their own pace rather than waiting around for things all the time.

comment Best way to represent time related event during a day in a graph
It's not just about displaying the information, it's about reading the information. It's important to know what you want people to be able to easily determine from the graphic. For example, comparing admins with each other; compare total against a baseline; see overtime; validate core hours; spot slackers; transfer data to timesheets... There could be any number of use cases for which different display characteristics or highlighting of different parts of the data may be useful. Without knowing this, there's no telling what the most suitable method might be.

comment How to convey that an indicator is clickable
@VitalyMijiritsky I see where you're coming from in terms of being a GD question but it's also a UX related question in terms of methods of providing affordance and intent. The graphic design aspect has to be involved of course because this is a visual problem, but that doesn't immediately kick this ball over the fence into GD territory.
