comment What perceptual mechanism governs this road indicator design?
@NewAlexandria I'm nowhere near a teacher on the topic, so no offense taken... but I said, that to understand the sign you need to consider also the context: how is that less? Anyway, as Rolf says, it's a "learnable sign" as much as a 'serif' arrow and zebra crossings, only the last two are more widely accepted. It's a semiotic problem: the relation between sign and meaning can be totally arbitrary. You could think of them as sharktooths, but another interpretation could be that they're meant to look like stones (see also zebra crossings in Pompeii).

comment What perceptual mechanism governs this road indicator design?
@NewAlexandria I'm suggesting that the meaning of the sign is clearer if one considers its context (in this particular case, the direction from which you reach it). If the sign is taken alone, I agree that it's hard to understand.

@immibis more likely than where it used to be in the previous application? (no sarcasm, I'm actually asking)

comment Form validation and disabled buttons
This really deserves to be moved to the duplicated question. About inline validation, I understand that leaving a field one starts ignoring it, but what if it happens at each keypress? Does it make any difference?

@rogerovo: nice question. The article linked by PhillipW might shed some light on that.

comment Effects of vote weighting for proven users in mature, gamified sites like Stack Exchange
I would google for 'democracy vs meritocracy'. My wild guess is that in system 1 rep grows linearly, in system 2 exponentially. In general it wouldn't change much in the rankings.

@JamesRyan: speed sounds like a plausible measure of effort to me, why is it a flawed assumption? TIA

comment How can I display multiple forms and lot of important form information on an Android application?
then how about putting them below the form? one would still have to scroll down to reach the submit/skip buttons, so they wouldn't go unnoticed anyway.

comment Is there a better way to design switches than I/O?
O and I are the esperanto of switches: they're made for everyone, but only experts understand them.
