comment Are there PhD topics for user experience?
Experiences definitely differ here. While some came in with the same idea they left with, many of my cohort either had no idea--or had an idea only to discover their PhD ended up wildly different than what they'd originally aimed for.

comment Is there an established gradient of colors reflecting completeness of a form?
Red vs. Green presents a number of problems. They only mean "stop/go" in some cultures; and there is a sizeable red/green color-blind population.

comment Should we fake succesful form submit, display result and then revert if some conditions are not met?
This technique is becoming widely used among sites, yes, especially on mobile apps--G+ and Facebook both seem to use it. Interestingly it also matches a conversational pattern among humans, where you presume you've been heard, and expect to get interrupted later if your message wasn't received right...

comment What is the expected result for mouse inputs in web based applications?
I think this is a very new trend--only in the past 2-3 years, as developers get more used to overriding the standard browser right-click menu.

comment How to handle settings which can be both set mechanically and via a computer?
Some of the old patterns there were pretty awful. For example, changing volume in software would persist until you accidentally nudged the hardware controls--at which point the volume would jump to the hardware-set leves, potentially blowing out your spreakers. So perhaps not the best source of positive lessons...
