comment Best UX approach to redesign the information architecture of a website?
Interesting question. I'd like to see what other approaches people have. After taking a content inventory I would have said card sort / domain model approach too.

comment How to avoid big banks of buttons?
Not sure why this has been down voted so heavily as it's a legit solution. Not all answers need walls of text to be valid.

comment How many more people do I reach if we build a website that reaches WCAG Level AAA?
This depends entirely on your audience. As some answers cite AAA is most situations is overkill. To put it into context I design self service web apps for local government and they only require AA.

comment What is high level sitemap?
I'd imagine a high level sitemap defines the top level site IA and does not go into specifics regarding sub nodes? I'd imagine sitemap covers the whole IA... Just a guess.

comment Should a multinational website background color be a conscious choice?
I've always been a bit confused by this color argument. Surely it's not as clear cut as people make out? I'd say context plays a key role. It's not like everywhere I go I see something that's black and instantly think of death.

comment Why are coiled cables rarely used?
@MichaelLai yes fair point. Perhaps I was a bit brash. I've removed my downvote.

comment Why are coiled cables rarely used?
@Ooker fair point. Unfortunately I don't have the answer. There doesn't seem to be a SE that concerns physical design thinking.

comment Why are coiled cables rarely used?
There could be a whole load of other factors that come into play - manufacturing cost, patents. Like the infamous "why do elevator doors close" question, I don't see how this is for UX.SE

comment Should form 'Continue' button be disabled if validation is incomplete?
@colmcq the link posted is why I questioned form scanning as I was concerned the article was only focused on paragraphs as opposed to other elements.

comment Should form 'Continue' button be disabled if validation is incomplete?
+1 Good answer. When it comes to scanning information is there any research in regards to forms? I've always seen them as more of a focused task with some level of commitment (depending on context of course). It's just all the usability observation and testing I've done I've personally found forms get completed from top to bottom step-by-step, and in most cases filling in optional information.

comment What some alternative ways to present tabular data instead of the standard table in the UI?
Everything has it's place. It's up to us as interface designers to educate people that you should be using the appropriate patterns for tasks as opposed to shoehorning in a widget for novelty purposes.

Maybe they should think about readability and usability before sacrificing it for something novelty.

comment Why don't all washing machines beep when finished?
My dishwasher doesn't bleep when finished. It's all down to model preference.

comment How do I get KPIs within an enterprise environment?
Good answer. I've never heard of the Kano model, thanks for making me aware of it.

comment Flight Passenger Experience: 1 window per seat row
@reirab I'll admit I exaggerated that. I think people are misinterpreting what I meant. Firstly, I still think this is a poor question and not sure why it's on here. There are highlights to looking out the window of course but the majority is going to be boring sky or sea. OP needs to realise not everything is about enhancing UX, there are so many more factors to take into account, especially with aviation.

@O.R.Mapper A good idea is a good idea forever.

comment Flight Passenger Experience: 1 window per seat row
@O.R.Mapper "In-flight entertainment and windows are not mutually exclusive." Thanks for clearing that up. I never said get rid of windows, or to not make them bigger. The OP has decided that the majority of people want to spend their flight time looking out the window. Where's the evidence? It's a baseless statement.

Ever consider safety is a higher priority?

comment Flight Passenger Experience: 1 window per seat row
Is this question a joke? "For many a passenger it is a joyful experience to sit next to a window and look outside (when it is not too cloudy)." According to who? Why do they bother with in-flight entertainment then?
