comment Button for “Play, but from beginning” for a scrubber UX
Many video editors work on a mac, and most macs these days have the smaller keyboard that doesn't have a home button. This of course may not be an important consideration for the software (Windows only environment, user demographics suggest that they have full-size keyboards etc.)

comment What are good reasons (if any) for intentionally breaking the affordances of an input field?
Actually that makes a lot of sense in this context. It's been done piecemeal, and it's inconsistent about where this happens, so I guess one dev worked on it in this way and it slipped through the cracks.

comment What are good reasons (if any) for intentionally breaking the affordances of an input field?
To be honest; "That doesn't make sense, and we can't think of a reason either" is a really useful answer. I'm trying to check I didn't miss something obvious.

Precisely. It was just so extensive, that I felt the need to get sanity checks from other UX pros that I wasn't missing something obvious.

comment “We emailed instructions to bork@bork.bork”
The argument could be made that the TLD makes it obvious that it's an invalid email address, but I would caution against that, as you don't know when and if .bork will become available.

comment Copy for a checkbox - Positive or negative?
What if the opt out was an opt-in checkbox that was enabled by default? That would likely have a noticeable impact

revised If the output from a webapp can't be made accessible, is it worth it to make the rest of the webapp accessible?
Fixed a wrong word, and inserted a caveat about it depending on the level of impairment.

It would be a mistake to assume that one accessibility issue covers all of them. Even visual impairments can have different causes from each other with different methods of providing accessibility to someone suffering a different visual degeneration of some sort. e.g. Colour-blindness is still an accessibility issue that you should consider.

comment Is it usable to start application with asking the user to turn Location services?
Bear in mind that a phone or sim enabled table often knows it's location thanks to the data/cellular signal. Not as accurate as GPS, but often more than accurate enough, so it's not necessarily the end of the world if they don't turn on their GPS. Make sure you take that possibility into account when designing your user journey.

revised Why show the user 'There are n updates since page load, refresh to see them' rather than adding new data
Expanded on the Mobile First philosophy as it affects this consideration.
