comment What is the best way to select the apparel size?
@Jybz, I put up an explanation over here regarding the click ability with the "ice berg tip", it doesn't need to be smaller.

Agree with @CodeMaverick, but I wont give an upvote before you fix the "only color for selected circle"

The hit area for the "S" does not need to be smaller, what the eye can see is not always whats true. - See the iceberg tip - patterns.jribeiro.org/patterns/iceberg-tip

comment UI for dimming light
My experience is that presets in such panels never work as intended. What is the actual need for a preset? Why not make the dim-action itself both easy and fast for the user to choose a dim that fits his needs.

comment Text vs Icon (Opens in a New Window)
If I were to choose either only icon, or only text (because of space-issues) I would have chosen the bar on the left with only a beer... Signs are probably best represented with icons (especially road signs). But as everything else, it depends on the context, and, of course - the users. Test each solution with real users, don't always listen to generalizing studies. (Even though they are mostly right)

comment Why is everything becoming flatter?
Just to add: an argument against "flat design" is that clickable areas are harder to understand. - It lacks affordance.

comment Should “Yes, delete it” be red, or green?
@Lohoris, when/if you are in a setting were you test an application with a regular user, and the user give you a response. Would you ever think of their answer as "I don't believe you"? - Even though you disagree and feel that their answer is irrelevant (no answers are irrelevant btw.) - You have to take all the users behavior into consideration...

comment Should “Yes, delete it” be red, or green?
@AlanHaiiaiAlavi If a red makes the user think twice, why did the users in the example push the red button more often than a green button? - Your wikipedia-article states: "Several studies have indicated that red carries the strongest reaction of all the colors, with the level of reaction decreasing gradually with the colors orange, yellow, and white, respectively.[103][104]" - If you are working with saws or dangerous machinery, I see how an "emergency stop button" need to be pushed fast - and thus need a strong or quick reaction.

comment Should “Yes, delete it” be red, or green?
@AlanHaggaiAlavi A statement as "Something so trivial requires no evidence" - Is one of the worst things you can ever say. What is trivial? Your opinion of trivial? I have evidence on the opposite. blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/6307/bid/20566/… This article is testing red vs green "call to action" - color in a landing page. The red button outperformed the green button by 21% - So, back to the question, do you actually have any evidence to support your trivial argument? If yes, I would gladly read it! :)

comment Why show usage numbers on the website?
I disagree DA01, Benny is answering the question spot on. I quote: "Because of that, websites that don't sell products need to show number of visitors, no of clicks, no of unique users by hour, day and month."

comment Do non-technical/non-web savvy users understand the concept of tags?
@MainMa, why do you differ between categories and tags? In my opinion, they are the same. What you are doing when you are tagging elements is actually categorizing the elements. And yes i've read your example regarding tree structures. I can agree that a tree-structure is a really bad way to display elements, but if you ignore that "categories has to be in a tree structure" - there is no longer an issue. Instead of differing, you can combine them. Use tags as categories / categories as tags. And why not just stop using the word tag, and start using the word category.
