This question has been asked before, you'll find the answers quite interesting: Common screen resolution?

comment The best way to implement threaded web discussions on small screen
Do you need to support a large number of 'steps', or would you limit that to 2-3 or similar?

comment Which of this scenarios are better from Scrum Teams?
I completely agree with the last statement. We are using Approach 2, but only because: a) Our team is small and we work very close to each other; and b) Some of our UX is done directly in the code.

comment In Final Fantasy games, why are your characters on the right hand side instead of the left hand side?
I don't think this is something that can be answered with certainty. I though I was on to something when I checked what else FF's creator had done before. Turns out he developed this game called Cruise Chaser Blassty (screenshot), where you have fights... but I can't figure out if the player's character is on the left or the right. Take a look at the video.

comment Where to place login failed message in Twitter Boostrap
I agree with this solution, although for security reasons I wouldn't show which input is the wrong one (I'd show the dialog below the button instead).

@dan1111 I've just edited my answer with 'my case'. I'm deleting my comments since the information has been added to it.

comment Dealing with multi-window interfaces for desktop applications?
I was going to recommend this solution as well. Most likely, users will have a preferred way of docking the windows according to their usual tasks. If you save the layout for each user (assuming you have users or similar means of identification), then most of your worries are covered. I use WPF docks for quite complex apps, and so far it's worked quite nicely.

comment Responsive web vertical scrolling design and elements
Because most carousels work with absolute positioning, you would need to change it by modifying the javascript. It's not difficult to do, but if you haven't worked with js you will need help. You would be replacing the fixed widths the carousel calculates for dynamic ones based on the current size of the window. But it is something that can be done, so there's no problem combining carousels with responsive design. And there are some plugins that are ready for responsive too.

comment What's the cleanest option for a loading indicator in a login dialog?
You are right, it is taking way more than it should, around 3 or 4 seconds. I'm just doing the design, but I know the developers are wondering about this, and will eventually decrease the time.

comment What's the cleanest option for a loading indicator in a login dialog?
When the program loads I actually use a loading bar, but instead of one whose color grow, I use a full color one with stripes that move to the right. That way it's both at the same time: a loading bar, and a spinner :)

comment What's the cleanest option for a loading indicator in a login dialog?
This is the best option for me because I am in fact designing for a Microsoft Partner. Activity pointers seems to be the best approach. Thanks.

comment How does individual vs pluralistic language affect community?
@enderland You alone know the scope of your project. "Keep it honest and consistent" (with your brand / idea) seems like a good answer to me.

comment Should personal data be asked at the beginning or end of an online survey
Once you finish the survey, leaving your personal details could be optional. "Thank you for filling our survey. Would you like to participate in our draw? Leave us your email address".

comment Does a text editor on a dark interface need to use a black page?
Thanks for your answer. About the other programs using a white page, I meant almost all of the people who will be using the program are very used to word processors, but have hardly used a black page (we are terribly used to, with so much coding).

comment Best way to add extra information to a log table?
Great answer, just one tiny tiny thing in the last image: If you align the pages vertically and make them the same size, it looks like the input and output are entering/leaving from the same place

comment How does “upload an image” behave in a Responsive Design environment?
This would be better suited for stackoverflow. I'd say it probably depends on how the plugin is written, but in the last responsive web app I did, we left mobile out because it wasn't done automatically.

comment How can I keep up-to-date with the latest thinking about designing complex, rich applications?
I always keep an eye on what Google is doing. I think it works as an example of complex applications functioning together.
