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.

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

comment Are there still many people dragging scroll bar to scroll down/up in the webpage?
Do you have any numbers on this, like divided into user categories / ages, and what kind of user groups have you conducted these experiences on? +1 if you can enhance your answer :)

comment Would it be easier to scan a list of grayscale profile pictures compared to colored?
Yeah, I really do think it comes down to - Ease of scan vs. speed of recognition

comment How do you source your persona photographs?
What about taking portraits(pictures) of real persons? Isn't that who the personas should be based on?

Got a blank page with "true" after signing up... (Not sure if I can trust a UX focused page without labels) - Lets hope its because its not done yet

comment Progressive reduction + disclosure to improve user experience
The idea that someone failed miserably implementing something, does not make it wrong :)

comment Force a PDF download vs allowing the user to view in browser first
When you download pdf's in chrome, and open them from the grey download bar that pops up on the bottom. It automatically opens in the browser. - I guess its not only for me. In that case, it does not matter if you force them to download it, or to preview it first.

comment Is the return arrow a recognized symbol for submitting an input field?
Thats what I had in mind with the second update, where I wrote: "What about doing some progressive reduction that changes after user behavior?" :) And of course, this is going to be user tested, i'm just trying to get some feedback from others experience around this matter. The question is still: Will the users understand the return arrow?
