comment Hamburger menu for responsive portfolio
In my opinion, it doesn't make sense to use a hamburger menu in any scenario. Check these articles for research regarding the usability of the hamburger icon; lmjabreu.com/post/why-and-how-to-avoid-hamburger-menus theatlantic.com/product/archive/2014/08/… techcrunch.com/2014/05/24/before-the-hamburger-button-kills-you

comment Should I verify e-mail format in login form?
Remember to validate emails with '+' in it. So many services are neglecting the possibility of having a '+' in the email address. eg: christian.paulson+b2bwebapp@gmail.com

comment Is there a point at which an interface design can be considered “complete?”
People change, technology change, therefore interfaces has to change. They are never complete!

comment Why don't we auto-save for users instead of having them save manually?
We also had a placebo-button earlier, but when our autosave worked better and was more accurate, we removed the button because it just confused people. "Is it autosaving for me? So why do they have a save-button? I cant trust the autosave if they developers won't trust it"

comment What should a e-mail address confirmation e-mail say?
@Izhaki Thanks for the elaboration. To your point about normal distribution range - I totally disagree, when you design for a diversified user group, you should always try to help the ones that need the extra information - There is no loss for your 'superusers' to get an extra line of instructions. If you design for the lowest experienced user group, everyone will gain.

comment What should a e-mail address confirmation e-mail say?
I disagree to your points: "No need for the line asking people to click on the button. People should get it without these instructions." "Nobody cares for the address of the company, or the copyright clause. Users eyes will skip this." You don't need the instructions, but other people may. The address and the copyright clause creates trust for new users.

Never say: "I know i'm right" ! User test both modals, and prove it with reality.

In your example, the title: "(3) Inbox - Gmail" Would be even better

comment Is “Tweet to Unlock a Free Download” a dark pattern?
but @BenBrocka, if the site state its 'free', and then uses the opposite term, 'pay' - even though the common use of paying something is by using money, they really do contradict themselves?

comment Is there any justification for different behavior of different ways of triggering the same action?
A much more modern approach to Nielsens heuristics is the UX axioms: uxaxioms.com

I say all the nielsen heuristics could be supported by that line. The problem is not the heuristics themselves, but the wide-open possibility of users misconception that a recipe can be followed based on heuristics.

comment Is there any justification for different behavior of different ways of triggering the same action?
The difference is between believing in a world were a static list of items can be followed as a recipe vs. evolving and innovating the user interface based on a clear goal, supported by thorough user testing. An example from the heuristics is the "Follow platform conventions" - platform conventions changes over time, because user behavior changes. There are many different ways to complete a task, and people implement it differently. Instead of using standards and consistency as a slavic mindset, have the users goal in mind.

comment Might a design be “too good” for users that expect a low price?
I was on my way making the same type of example, in Norway you see all the big grocery-stores create their own branded food-series as a cheap alternative, and they all use the same ultra-minimalistic 'cheap' design.

People evolve, people are not static creatures. Nielsens heuristics are based on a static model. I'd say its justified, but only when its based on the context...

A question to ask is if UX WTF's are good for the users, even though the solution works better on the paper
