comment What is this side menu called that can be found in many multi-touch apps, and where does it originate from?
@mcb It's not sad. I'm not saying off-canvas interactions don't work. I am saying that "out of sight, out of mind" needs to be considered when designing interfaces with that pattern.

@mcb I'm not sure what you're referring to. I'm just pointing out that when site/app features are hidden in a menu engagement drop. This is based on the article I linked.

I believe it is important in this type of discussion to include the principle of "Out of sight, out of mind" which has been a major problem with these type of interfaces: thenextweb.com/dd/2014/04/08/…

What is an MRD? (tip: Write it out with the acronym after since you are addressing a larger audience on this site).

comment Why doesn't the Mac OSX finder have a Cut option?
The reason this also breaks it because I actually can cut text using the CMD+X > CMD+V shortcuts. If this was consistent I would have only needed to learn it once. Now it's just confusing and most people don't know how to do it with files.

comment Constructing personas without user research
For future users I would like to highlight that doing this simply isn't possible in terms of the process that creating personas requires which is real primary data. Without primary data you can not create personas, then they are called "ad-hoc personas" or "user profiles". They are often created as a temporary step to understnad which questions to ask during the research for creating real personas.

comment What are we calling the 3 lines button in mobile apps?
I believe this is the most logical answer, yes it should be logical, that's what users expect and cannot be confused :)

comment Design requirements for displaying Terms and Conditions / Privacy Policy
For anyone reading this thread later I would recommend this article. It has two key points: Don't use browserwraps (contracts with no explicit agreement is not a contract according to the court), but instead use clickthroughs. Make the user check a box or press a button in agreement of the terms. If you don't have a natural way to have users agree to T&C's then question why you would use them at all.
