Front-end developer at an online bank. I've been doing web development for 15 years. For most of that time, I've been passionate about UX, though I wouldn't consider myself an expert. It's a great privilege to be a part of this community and learn from you smart people.

You can also catch me on Stack Overflow, Twitter (@patrick_mc), and Github.

comment Tab Overflow: What to do when I run out of space for yearly tabs?
I'm thinking without JS it should just display separate tables for each year in one long page. That would be good for printing too. (It does not degrade gracefully now. Nor does it does it use internal (#) anchors to enable linking directly to a tab. Hangs head in shame.)

comment What are the important design principles that a good UI should comply with?
See the "scope of questions" discussion on meta. We're still trying to work out what should be considered on topic. I'd appreciate your input.

@LoganGoesPlaces @ChrisF On this site I'm mostly interested in what's the best design, assuming whatever technical limitations will be overcome. Thanks for your comments!

I'm not 100% clear what would happen when you click the "older" tab. Show 120 rows (if there are three "older" years?

Yes. The powers that be in this case like the tabs.

comment Should I add a 'Home' Button to the navigation?
The Stack Exchange layout puts the logo next to the navigation menu. I'm sure that helps communicate the fact that it serves as the link to "home."

revised Custom UI vs Default UI
I don't think a "ui" tag is necessary. All questions should be related to UI.
