comment Research on the Usability of Grid Views
Source: nngroup.com/articles/drop-down-menus-use-sparingly "It is much faster for users to simply type, say, "NY," than to select a state from a scrolling drop-down menu. Free-form input into fields with restricted options does require data validation on the backend, but from a usability perspective it's often the best way to go." This quote summarizes the findings in guideline #178 for e-commerce usability from nngroup.com/reports/ecommerce-user-experience

comment When client and server side validations occur, doesn't it make for a better UX to only do server validations?
Yeah... um what?

comment Best UI to allow expert users to enter an ip address? (IPv4)
Your point about tabbing is a prime reason why I discounted option 1. The separators add a cognitive load as the user is typing - "Do I need to tab/click into the next field or not?". Option 2, although less so than 1, still makes the user think whether they need to click past each period in the mask, or type a period. For example, could the mask know where to place its period if I was typing 192.168.0.1 vs 192.0.2.101?

comment Is this a good way of attracting a user's attention to a message?
That's an interesting bit of information, I never would have thought that things at the edge of the screen would be so noticeable.

comment Irreversible changing of state
After the user decides to complete, you could then complete the task permanently and replace the "Complete Task" button with "Completed" label like you suggested originally. The point is to provide a warning that completing the task is permanent. If the user checks the "do not ask again" box and then completes the task, the next time they go to complete a task they would not see the lightbox - the button on the page would just turn to "Completed" because they are now aware of what happens when they click the button.

comment DatePicker UX for single and multiple calendar mode
Some questions: Are you selecting a RANGE, or just multiple random dates? What is the primary use case for this feature, e.g. most will select only one date or mostly multiple dates? About how many is "multiple"? Will this be used on mobile devices?

comment Affordance (indication) of an editable grid
Could you please include a visual for this? I'm not sure what we're working with here... what do these "grids" look like?
