comment Toilet flush buttons
Sometimes the buttons are even more confusing - i've seen a single button that does full and short flush depending on how long you hold the button down. And they provide instructions for use that show it's counterintuitive to how you'd expect it to work.

This example, if they are embossed markers is probably useful for using in the dark too (a common use for toilets, I imagine).

comment Is content teasing effective?
It might be one of the most important KPIs for the company you refer to - but you've not explained that. Many, many sites happily (and profitably) exist without the need for people to register and give over their details. You can use Google without registering. You can use Reddit without registering. You can even use sites like eBay and hotels.com without registering, up until the point you need to provide details in order to receive the product. I don't think asking why you need registration is an odd question at all.

comment Is content teasing effective?
Why do you need them to register anyway? Sites like this very site you're on doesn't require registration to visit and we get quite a high number of visitors as a result.

comment Is content teasing effective?
Is it effective as opposed to what? Just showing all the content itself?

comment Are centered input boxes cool?
For what purpose would they be used? Log-in page on a social network? As part of a mortgage application form? As a website search field? Also - if the label disapears as soon as you click into the field, how are you supposed to know what you're supposed to put in it then? Or worse - if you come back to the form later with everything filled in, you'll have no labels anywhere indicating what the fields are for.

comment suggest free mock-up online/offline tools
Welcome to User Experience! Sorry, but questions requesting recommendations for software / apps / books etc. would fall into the shopping request category and aren't really suitable to a Q&A website. The reason for this is that there is no one correct answer, and such recommended items would soon be updated and replaced with newer / better versions making the best answers redundant. Therefore you're better off visiting our Chat site for such discussions, they're not really suitable for this main site I'm afraid.

comment Hover or click on dropdown menu
That sounds like a pretty sensible complain from your client, to be fair. And seems to support what I alluded to in my comment. So the next question is - what is your problem with changing it to a click?

comment Automatic calling system: "Press star" or "Press asterisk"?
Is your question basically: what is this * thing called ?

comment Hover or click on dropdown menu
What exactly is the clients issue with the hover? What did they say? And why exactly do you dislike clicks? Hovering over something in order to trigger a menu isn't really the most user-friendly method anyway as it requires precise positioning and maintaining that position within a small area of the screen. A click to open the menu requires far less precision to use the menu item itself anyway, so I'm tempted to agree with your client, but you'll need to explain the actual problem you have and why you don't like the solution in a bit more detail if we're to be able to help you here.

comment How many required fields are too many?
And don't just consider fields that are actually required by the business. Consider fields that are actually required by the business right now. Much of the 'required' content can be gathered at a later date in different means.

comment Is there a way (for a moderator) to search for posts that were deleted as Spam?
@ArthurFischer: Indeed it is. Slightly different but a similar approach. I'd take that one or this one, whichever is easier to implement really.
