comment Is there a universal icon that means “remove”?
A minus character, Θ, as a button also conveys Remove, rather than Delete or Exit.

comment In general What is the difference between alert and warning message?
I'd say warnings are generally used to notify a user that a problem is close (eg. "Warning, low battery level"). And that alerts on the other hand is a general term for when the problem has already occurred (eg. "File transfer failed"), alert could probably be rephrased as a notification of an error.

comment Should users be given the option to sign up to a website without having to set a password?
I can agree with you sometimes it really doesn't feel necessary. For example in a previous building I lived in we booked laundry time using a web portal. There you had to sign in using a serial number and a password. Not one time did I feel that I appreciated the level of security. In a commercial or social context there could be a difference though. I guess you have to weigh in how much potential damage someone unauthorized could pose using the service, and from there determine whether disabling authentication is an option. In a laundry context, I'd say the potential damage is slim to none.

comment Is modifying the user input allowed?
@user3071170 while I agree with you I still feel that the relation between seconds-minutes-hours isn't the same as days-months-years. The unit relation between seconds and hours are always the same, there are always 3600 seconds to an hour. However, as you point out, there are usually 30 or 31 days to a month, and sometimes there are 28, and every once in a while there are 29 days. So unless you have the amount of months mapped to a calendar you can't really say anything about how many days there are. I feel that there is a difference here.

comment Is modifying the user input allowed?
@DaveAlger You may be right, I'd digging in my mind for real world examples. And I can't really determine whether a service auto formatting / correcting my input is as a whole a nuisance or an aid. It really depends on context.

comment Admin table with many rows, init state?
Just want to point out that you do have a third alternative also. To not shot a table instantly but instead give space for a sophisticated filtering area. This can usually be the case when using search oriented services with a LARGE data volume, like whitepages for example.

Hi Zoe. Seeing that you're quite new to this community I'm interested to hear a bit more. You say that you're "good at keeping discussions constructive and positively neutral", is this a quality you've assigned yourself or do you have any actual experience from moderating other communities with good results that you can mention?
