And even though your wife prefers something, you should test it on more people :)

comment Ajax login vs navigation
In any way - an important factor, were your example demo fails, is that the input field should receive focus when you open it.

comment How to indicate sortable elements
How will putting an ambiguous icon no one has seen before help the end user? Before you select any of these options, you have to do user tests... - My guess is that people would take Oztacos answer much faster. Simplifying is good, but over simplifying is bad. Always user test! - On the other hand - What about a combination? i.imgur.com/ALoEnLO.png - just change the text from Button to "Sort"

comment How many mockups do you typically do for a responsive bootstrap design?
@DA01 People have a hate/love relationship with the word "Bootstrap", I guess thats the reason for many of the anonymous downvotes...

comment How to indicate sortable elements
I agree, and I think it's very much connected to how people were over-using tables back in the day.

The answer from @Oztaco works when you can identify the type of information in the table. If you have several columns, the top heading row is not just intended for sorting, but also to identify the type of content in the underlying column.

comment Does visual design really affect UX?
You only need one article to answer your question, it's a term used in psychology called the "Halo Effect": en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halo_effect

@RogerAttrill For what it's worth - I am afraid people asking the same question take your answer as a fact.

comment How long should a temporary notification appear?
This is just based on assumptions, how can "Users said they like it" prove anything about what is the best solution?

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

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.

comment Button labels on modals: consistency argument versus UX
Never say: "I know i'm right" ! User test both modals, and prove it with reality.
