comment What are the negative and positive aspects of dark color scheme?
Good answer Nick. If you want your Visual Studio fixed, I have a great theme. Can't help you with Outlook though.

@JonCoombs I personally do not have myopia, however, I know others that do and agree. Regarding the fatigue, even without eye problems, I agree with Nick Bedford's answer, light backgrounds (like SO) cause this sensation for me too, especially at night.

@JonCoombs it is untrue regarding then having the same contrast, check W3Cs formula - white on black has higher contrast than black on white.

comment Flight comparison websites 'delaying' search results?
@Crissov Technically they can't simply read the entire database of other companies, especially since the data keeps changing. Not to mention that companies don't share their database (large data volumes). Having a up to date database would require live feed from each provider to the search site, I think that the providers (flight companies) don't really have an interest in investing to provide a feed to every single search site (and their competitors), when they have a search API which is good enough. The first results you get are fast since they are cached and may already be out of date.

comment What is the difference between user's perspective vs perception?
Perspective = the context/light in which the user sees/judges/perceives the product, Perception = how the user sees/perceives the product.

comment How to show sleeping on a slider?
Light sleeper/Heavy sleeper isn't a sleeping habit, it's depth of sleep. Try "very light sleeper", "quite a light sleeper", "average sleeper", "quite a heavy sleeper", "very heavy sleeper" and use radio buttons instead, as they do in physiological questionnaires.

comment Should number input fields also include dividers { . - }?
Try copying a phone number or a serial number with tokens into a field that does not accept non numeric characters, you will feel the annoyance.

comment Best way to display a long form with many dynamic questions
"Going back" is possible in all of the offered solutions, therefore it is a bit redundant to mention it.

comment Should number input fields also include dividers { . - }?
To avoid annoyance, I think you should let the user type/paste the numbers with any tokens in them e.g. {"-", " "}, then filter them out when processing them.

comment Why do web sites display dates in an inaccurate representation e.g. “a year ago”?
1.9 years ago would have been better.

comment is horizontal swipe intuitive enough on mobile
I disagree - scroll bars enable leaping to beginning/end with a fast drag. I use them along with swiping while browsing though long pages on tablets. One consideration to make though is perhaps to only show the scroll bar on tap, to prevent accidental leaping away from current position (e.g. while reading a book).
