I'm a Ruby, Python, PHP, and Lua programmer. Most of my projects have been web-based collaboration sites to help my coworkers communicate and trade information more effectively, and lots of one-off utilities to shoehorn data into fussy systems. I'd love nothing more than to fulfill my goal of becoming a teacher (pay be damned!) and I'm working on my degree to do just that.

comment Is there a semantic difference between "manipulable" and "manipulatable"?
With some additional research, it appears you're exactly right: "manipulate" was formed from "manipulation", which was the "-ation" (essentially "the process of") suffix applied to the Latin root word "manipulus", or "to work with the hand". So "manipulable" would mean "workable (with the hand)" while "manipulatable" would mean "able to be worked (with the hand)". In short, it's the same distinction between "usable" and "can be used", which is likely why we see "manipulable" in connection with psychology and "manipulatable" in connection with engineering (via Ngrams).

comment Why is it called the fold?
@DA01 I love that those three sites have essentially zero side content below the fold.

comment Complex data input form on mobile device
Why do multiple product ratings need to be grouped into a single card? I consider "rating" a single action that should have one complete flow associated with it. That is, I find the thing I'm looking for, I rate it, and I am taken back to the initial screen. Perhaps it would help to have a bit more information about the type of content you're working with?

comment Getting new and existing users to follow others - Best Practices?
Welcome to UX.StackExchange! As written, it appears that you are asking a question that is primarily "can you suggest an X?" This style of question makes it difficult to come up with a definitive answer, which is what Stack Exchange's Q&A format strives for. You may want to reword this question to ask something more specific, like "Are certain words more likely to encourage users to 'follow'?" or "Should users automatically 'follow' profiles they visit directly?"

As written, it is difficult to determine exactly what you're asking. You may want to reword the question to one which could have definitive answers instead of one asking for suggestions or opinions.
