comment If I am not the developer and I haven't hired one, how should I explain the development step of my UX design process to potential clients?
Looks like step 7 (wireframe) should go before step 6 (select a theme) and you should have a software architect involved in step 5 (brainstorm) instead of waiting for step 9 to see what can actually be done and then potentially going back to step 5.

comment Why do squares look taller than wide on screens?
@PatomaS Screen capture it as an image, then measure the display then rotate the image 90 degrees and the measure again. You should get the same result. This image, specifically doesn't have straight lines - if you look closely you'll see they are slightly diagnol. Therefore, you might want to try with a clean square image with 1 pixel wide straight lines.

comment Why do squares look taller than wide on screens?
The sub-pixels are not square, however, the combination of the RGB sub-pixels is what you should be considering, though even this doesn't have to be a square to reach a uniform density. The distance between the edge of the pixels in each axis is supposed to be defined so that the distance between the centers of the pixels is the same in each dimension.

comment Is red an acceptable colour for a submit button on a form for a purchase or booking?
If all the buttons were grey except one green button, it would still stand out, however, may make users less cautious about clicking on it.

@FranciscoPresencia you can check Google's cache of the site to see the same content the robots see without registering.

comment Should a 'Calculator' support '{' (curly braces) and '[' (box braces)
Neither approach should be difficult to process/implement. The most user friendly approach should probably include matching brace highlighting.

comment What is the best way to hide a Honeypot Captcha?
The honeypot field concept seems flawed to me - A user that fills in a form once, can then fill in the same fields automatically with different details using a script and ignore honeypot fields automatically. I do hate the captchas though, especially the onces combined with an error message under the captcha even if the mistake is elsewhere.

comment Why are certain fonts more legible than others?
@DA01 your points are all valid, however, you haven't suggested any way to improve the question.

@Bleamer I was trying to stick to the objective facts I know. Comparing specific fonts may become too subjective.

comment Triple-state toggle: 'turn on', turn off', 'auto turn on and off'
You used the same icons for the on and off, try 1 and 0 instead of the combined (1) icon which is meant for dual purpose (on/off) power buttons. You could try scales to imply judgment based for the auto mode icon.

Note that the OP isn't asking which font is more pleasing (opinion based) but what makes fonts pleasing which is a human vision + psychology issue which I believe falls under UX.
