comment Cultural differences while usability testing
Can't help but comment. I haven't read the study you mention, but relating masculinity vs femininity to achievement, assertiveness and ambition vs. nurturing and caring for others, is also a cultural association.

comment Responsive design: Should I go bigger than 1024px?
Excellent answer. I added a new responsive step and it actually makes quite a difference. The minimum resolution is not a problem if you have an adaptive design, and for the maximum... well, 960 is definitely getting too small. The one I added will probably be around 1200px (I now have to choose the exact size).

comment Responsive design: Should I go bigger than 1024px?
Completely agree. This app wouldn't particularly benefit from going bigger in the majority of scenarios. However, I'd say 30% of it would. Vertical resolution seems to be ok for now. Thanks!

comment Accessibility and CAPTCHAs
A human solvable problem would be the way to go for me, but in that case you have to make sure it's easy enough not to be another accessibility obstacle (for the elderly or cognitive impaired for example). But then again, a CAPTCHA can be by itself something quite difficult to interpret sometimes, so not very accessible in the first place...

comment What direction do people read in when reading lists of checkboxes/radio buttons?
Thank you for your answer. The article is very interestnig and it helped me reorganise some of the other form elements (I still use two columns, but the inputs look now consistent in spite of the interpretation). Unfortunately, some of the checkbox lists have 20 - 25 elements, so until the web app changes functionality I won't be able to arrange them differently.

comment How can I get a job in the UX field without any professional experience?
@André what I meant was there isn't supposed to be. If you are a web designer (a professional one I mean), you are supposed to be doing good UX.
