comment Is it ever okay to have multiple rows of tabs?
@Marcel, I used JavaScript to dynamically construct the panel with the hidden tabs. If the parent element (container) uses overflow:hidden, the page should load correctly before the javascript kicks in. The only thing the javascript does is look for hidden elements and be ready to display them when the arrow is clicked.

comment To search or not to search?
Where do you expect bigger returns? Are customers having problems finding things? Would improved navigation solve those problems?

@BenBrocka I will stay away from blue and purple. I agree that red is a good color, but i hope somebody has ideas with different colors.

comment Best practice: card expiry date on checkout
@Fraser, if i remember correctly the common format was mm yyyy. I added the abbreviated month for clarity, but i have not done any tests on that. You may consider omitting that part.

comment Best practice: card expiry date on checkout
@Fraser, I did it in two steps. First i looked at a large number of credit cards to determine the format of the expiration date. We are required to keep carbon copies of credit card imprints for 6 years, so that part was easy. The second part involved looking at large e-commerce sites. I inspected sites such as Amazon and Apple (the usual suspects). I can't remember all the sites i looked at, but it was not more than 10.

comment Jobs says he cracked the TV code - How can Apps successfully integrate into the TV watching experience?
I believe the issue with apps on TVs is not the navigation or app layout. The big issues for me are resolution and controls. I can fit more content on my iPhone than on a large screen TV. Controlling my TV is also a frustrating task. Traditional remote controls do not work for most apps. Slimmed down keyboards with small track-pads are also not ideal.

comment How to deal with different screen sizes when your theme is all about design
It is all about compromises. You need to redesign it, even if it looks less appealing on your 17 inch monitor.

comment How do interstitial ads impact site UX?
If you, and anyone you know hates Ads, then you must be correct. It is hard to like them. It is a fine balance between increasing revenue and keeping users on the site.

comment What's an appropriate icon to represent an organisation?
I would not dismiss the "usergroup-theme with a couple of silhouettes next to each other". People recognize that it refers to group or organization. If you try to get too semantic, you will never find an icon.

comment Icon/Symbol to Represent “Done”?
@ashes999, use images of actual radio buttons. Users understand how to use them, and the interface will feel less cluttered.
