comment Is it a good idea to require users give an email address to see our prices?
Frankly, this is a poor suggestion.

comment Why is it important to focus on user needs as opposed to requests?
Urban legend or not that's actually quite believable!

comment Why are email notifications editable in desktop clients but not in mobile apps (i.e. Facebook / Twitter / Pinterest)
I see what you're saying, there is an element of that but I know a lot of people (including myself) that use their mobile to surf the net casually at home.

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.

@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.
