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).

comment ethics - Should a Mac app ask the user permission for gathering data about their hardware?
a. Why would the answer be specific to Mac OS X or Mac in general? b. Applications user ask permission to send such data anonymously.

comment Why is there no standard layout for computer keyboards?
The original shape of the Enter/Return key was like a mirror image L, the same as the arrow on the key. I do, however, agree that in the OP's image (the top image in your answer) the key doesn't have enough horizontal space allocated to it. Also, I do use the context key, it is useful when you don't want to move your hand to the mouse or if the mouse events were blocked.
