comment Assigning to multiple groups
About the intuitive aspect, I can barely understand what is happening in your second example, even after skimming the description. Maybe it's because of the usage of the very abstract terms of objects and containers, but mostly because the number of interdependent controls (five) the user has to manipulate at the same time. Even your first illustration has this drawback, and I can easily see myself adding object 2 to group 1 and only then notice that I wanted to add object 2 to group 6 instead.

comment What is the best way to improve the experience of a product with existing user base?
An interesting case is the choice of black and white icons in Visual Studio, as well as ALL CAPS in Visual Studio menu. Both changes were badly perceived by many users. Could you take the risk of being in a similar situation? How can you avoid this? If being in a similar situation, how would you react? What if you are convinced that your new design is better?

comment Meaning of message dialog icons - demand a prerequisite
Make sure you also read this answer to a related question: your current question looks like you don't understand very well the implications of message boxes on user experience and their low value.

comment How the user should be informed that the file she submitted is not an image?
@Brian: I see. Indeed, I don't know English well enough and I should have listened to Jon of All Trades instead of arguing. For you, what would be a more appropriate term then "lie"?

comment How the user should be informed that the file she submitted is not an image?
@JonofAllTrades: well, if the user submits a TIFF, a PSD or a TGA, telling that it's not an image is a lie: it is an image, just as a JPEG or a PNG.
