comment Syncing: should we visualize the “everything-is-up-to-date” state?
Though still see no reason not to have default iconless state, I do realize that this is a good answer, so let it be the final one.

comment When is themeing applicable in web application?
@sree, theming always is a headache but it's definitely better to have a very good interface with one theme than a modest one with plenty of themes. After all, if code is clear, it is most probably easier to implement any feature, especially theming, especially when we are talking about web application (so we are talking about css actually). So don't worry about tomorrow too much)

But there is a separate hint for error state and a separate hint for sync state. I'm not arguing with base concept - "The system should always keep users informed about what is going on, through appropriate feedback within reasonable time." It's just that - why don't we consider an icon without error and sync hints exactly "everything goes pretty well message". I mean, if there are N states, and N - 1 states (which actually happen rarer) why should be try to indicate the Nth state.

I completely understand it. All I want to say is that our application has a bit different logic and in web app you can see exactly the same output (in ideological sense) you can see in Desktop Dropdown folder - thus, it's need to be synced. Besides, even disregarding that fact - the question was about do we need such hints whenever we need syncing. So I confused why you are confused)))

It's a nice and valuable answer, thank you. I'm not confused, though. Indeed, this is screenshot of web app and yes, there exists a web interface as well. But technically my interface is exactly about the same think as Dropbox's desktop one. Since there is such thing as syncing this very instance with (well, it's complicated but let us name it this way) cloud.

@dnrbv - with all due respect, my question is pretty clear. What kind of rephrase do you find appropriate? I have a carousel which exists exactly for the same purpose as one provided on the picture. Besides, risk to be down voted is the only way to learn to ask right questions, if you are annoyed by the fact you don't understand the purpose of this question, feel free to down vote. Personally me just ignore question I just don't know what to answer. But it is your right.

comment Better way to scroll through discrete horizontal list
@dnvrb - I'm trying to figure out what is considered best approach. off the top off my head I can think about 100 different transition effects, it doesn't means any of the is a good fit for production. UX is 90% about approaches proved to be best then other ones.

comment Do website visitors return to the homepage once they're inside the site?
@Jon W, I guess, the minimal answer is - homepage is plus one point of entry. Besides, regardless to how good is you navigation and interface, there are always such users who reenter home pages url.

comment Ways to collapse sidebar as much as possible
thank you for this systematization, Opera's example is good example as well. The second case is exactly what I'm thinking about, except I want to try to move expand button to the top or to the bottom, just to make it not so annoying.
