comment Selecting Multiple Ranges
we actually don't show all the Parent elements at a single time. Just the one you are dealing with.

While I agree, free text is ideal, the users don't want it.

comment What toggle button should represent - state or action?
I think your icons are mixed around currently they way they stand. If the icon isn't part of the button, then maybe they are ok, showing current state. But as you have them, I would be confused.

comment Why don't ATMs give you cash before your card?
Losing a card can be much much more costly than losing a few hundred dollars cash that you forgot to grab.

@dhmholley, "and as we know, they don't like sharing" ... ironic.

@Lieven, ironically, we are talking about mistyping email addresses, and you misspelled "lose".

comment Should users be forced into a responsive design (without the ability to opt out)?
I disagree with "the primary intent of the design was desktop, with mobile layout being an automated after thought." IF you are designing a new site, with a new layout, you should start with the most restrictive design, mobile, and then scale up.

comment Is a number easier to read with the thousand separator?
At 4 digits, it makes very little difference. Beyond that, the separator should exist. Unless there is a mix of 4 and 5 digit numbers, in which case, for consistency all should have the thousands seperator

comment Why did packaging for reams of paper change from paper to plastic?
Uh..."Ask you favorite secretary for a demonstration of the amazing powers to unpack certain things using nothing but her experienced hands (sometimes the mouth, or the teeth to be more precise, is also involved)" I think we need to add an R rating to this post!?

Sinks are cheap, faucets are oddly expensive?

comment Do people respond more to $ off promos or % off promos?
"on a product of 100$ the 10% looks less than the 100$ off" ...that's because it is less, 100$ off makes it free!

The toolbox (accordion) menu is better than just stacking lists imo.

comment What is the difference between a UX Designer and a Product Manager?
@DA01, A project manager falls somewhere between the product manager and ux designer. A product is typically made up of several projects. The product manager handles how all these projects come together, or build upon one another.

comment Guiding the user through your page
It looks like this page is being redesigned based on something I had suggested when I got the initial design. In short, instead of a hierarchical listing, they will get a grid, to select their store/shop combinations. They then hit next, and get a list of only what they have selected to alter, this gives them an opportunity to verify their selections. This second page, also has the date selection on it, so they can enter the values, and save. It guides, but in a manner that makes more sense, and should speed up data-entry.

comment What's the best way to implement product comparison on a mobile web site?
That only works if they have a mobile that does horizontal.

comment Are there any studies on which keyboard keys get pressed the most?
The problem is, on a laptop, arrows (keyboard) tend to be faster and easier to use than a mouse. Unfortunately, since the average user doesn't know the shortcuts, they use the mouse. And the manufacturers design for the average user.
