How do you know you need a new homepage? How did that requirement come about? Knowing that would help with determining what the homepage needs to do.

comment Finding a *highlight* color
This isn't really a User Experience question as it's all going to be relatively subjective. However there is a Graphic Design stackexchange site that has many questions on colour theory, such as this one for example so I recommend having a browse of that site to see if they have any useful suggestions in existing questions there.

The older W3C guideline is from year 2000. Technology has moved on quite a bit since then. Pixel density, monitor clarity etc are all far better now than they were back then. While I don't know the answer to your question (it is an interesting one though) I'd hypothesize that general improvements in hardware have played their part.

comment Creating a layout for online booking ticket system.
@LukeBerry: Please don't suggest people post questions on other Stack Exchange sites unless you are a regular user of such sites so that you know what questions are and aren't suitable. This is a load of HTML and a request for whether he create a table / array or other implementation. That's not UX. UX is about what should happen, not how it should be implemented.

comment Email Service or CRM
This question appears to be off-topic because it is a request for emailer services. It isn't a User Experience issue that needs solving.

comment Feature Request: Request for a more up-to-date answer
Why not just add a bounty to it and leave a custom reason "I think I would like to see a more up-to-date answer"?

Please don't just link off somewhere without providing any explaination about what it is. That doesn't constitute an answer, it's just a link. Also - you can create mockups in UX.StackExchange directly

The tooltip doesn't say "this isn't useful to me". You should be able to tell if a question is generally a useful question or not. That's what the tooltip is for.

comment 0 to 10 rating system alternative
@t.pimentel: Could you still keep the ratings on separate pages, but if they've started rating the second system you could have a label against it saying "You rated 'System X' at Mostly Agree" alongside so they've something to compare it to.
