comment Why do washing machines have windows?
Unlikely. In the past, washing machines did not have windows, the only exception being large commercial laundries. Also in the past, there was no fabric softener (I still don't understand why there is fabric softener now! I don't think it does anything).

revised Should personal data be asked at the beginning or end of an online survey
Removed poll tag, wasn't relevant. Made tags more similar to other related question about surveys and demographic data. Corrected misspelled words.

comment Isn’t the FAQ label obsolete by now?
@codeinthehole I agree with you: Awarding a bounty for an answer to an inquiry as broad and subjective as whether FAQ is obsolete or not is peculiar. If someone says it is obsolete, what then? I personally don't think FAQ is obsolete at all, though it may be used in some places that it doesn't belong. Latin abbreviations e.g. and etc. are old, but not obsolete. They may never become obsolete, regardless of age. FAQ is not outdated when used correctly (IMHO).

@JørnE.Angeltveit "Questions with the most links" means questions with the most links to other related SE posts. Now how that relates to "FAQ"...well, I have no idea whatsoever! It does seem like a peculiar option, howsoever it might be labelled!

comment Isn’t the FAQ label obsolete by now?
@JørnE.Angeltveit If you hover over the second FAQ, it says "Sort questions with the most links". There are hover over's on all the other choices too. Good point though, as it took me awhile to figure that out!

comment Good ways to handle precisely overlapping data points in a graph?
This is exactly what I would have answered! It is by far the best choice in the sense that it is an accepted standard, used by many graphical applications e.g. SAS and SPSS. Your choice of colors should probably have been brighter, with more spacing in the example, but that's just for making the case here on UX SE. Horizontal grid lines are good. Best of all: Different styles of (open) markers more precisely describe the data points in relative terms, while allowing the user to distinguish between two or even three(!) super-posed observations. Nice answer, IMHO!

comment Hierarchical comments usability issues
This is not a duplicate question ux.stackexchange.com/questions/1712/… but may be useful, as many of the answers give additional examples for implementing hierarchical comments.
