comment Animation for interactive design
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because requests for software / product recommendations aren't suited to a Q&A site. There is no correct answer, and they just encourage spam and oneline suggestions, not actual explicit answers.

comment Feedback on my complex interactive navigation
Hi Tom. Sorry, but we're not really set up to give feedback on individual UIs. That's not really in-scope for this site. We're here to provide answers to specific UX questions and act as a repository so that other people with similar issues can come here and find solutions. However if you restructure your question around that concept then we can be happy to help you out.

You're assuming that a) people read the rules b) people care about the rules and c) people adhere to the rules.

comment Is it ok to use arrows to indicate money movement in & out of an account?
I have found from usability testing that the trouble with using arrows as indicators is that people will think the arrow is pointing at something in particular on the page, rather than being an icon / indicator on it's own right.

comment Voluntary gender indication
@MvG “Hey, answerer, the OP said they need …” The issue is more with the English language itself not having a gender neutral pronoun rather than it being that SE doesn't have a gender identification. We don't need to know peoples gender, we just need to know how to behave politely and in a friendly manner, and 'they' is the best option we have there I think.

Just go with OP. "Hey OP, have you considered ...."

comment Is there enough screen space on smart watches for complex user interactions?
This isn't really going to be a question with a specific answer, it's more of a discussion topic.

comment User Experience guidelines for B2B site for company specializing in engineering servicies
This is a very broad question. You're basically asking for everything about designing for B2B systems. Can you narrow this down? Are you concerned with language usage? Navigation? Accessibility? How to gather requirements? We need questions that can be explicitly answered in a few paragraphs, but this question is more suited to a book than a paragraph.

comment What is the best chart type for present, "track of orders or order status"?
Can we get a bit more detail here, or ideally an example of what you currently have? How many orders are there? How many stages do they go through? What is it being used for? As it is written I'd just say "use a line of text - 'Status: Delivered' rather than a chart" as I'm not sure what you're trying to represent with a chart here.

comment Choosing Language on Mobile Game
It's all very well saying that being able to change language is good, but how do you do that? If it's on one language by default then how does the user know they can change language? The label 'region and language' is English, so you'd have to understand English in order to change the language.

Why even bother with actual content at all? Just put ads everywhere.
