comment What is a good UI/UX for asking people to pick from two lists?
@sree I didn't mean it to necessarily be a new page, but a kind of 2 step wizard popup where the steps are clearly connected and provide a path, as opposed to two distinct popups which breaks the process up too much.

comment Votes (star rating) usage - stars or smiles?
@DavidMulder I don't think that makes sense! Who's to say that all users will be swayed in the same way and by the same amount. The point is to remove the number of factors which can affect results, not deliberately add to them!

And yet, many children's early learning keyboards have lower case letters on! For example these images on Google

comment Slider alternative
@MichaelLai Actually... yes! I did implement this for a client in C++ using Qt (as a plugin ui component) with a few extra features, although I held off on the multiple tooltips at the time. We had a situation where there was a lot of sliders and editable spinboxes all over the place. This 'smart spinbox' worked really well, saving space, reducing clutter, but still providing all the features necessary. I was going to write an article about it, but if you want to know more, see my bio and drop me an email through my website.
