comment How do I create professional, clean Software Demo GIFs?
This isn't a UX question. You've already decided what User Experience you want to provide - animated gif instructions - and now you're at the implementation stage, which falls outside the scope of this site I'm afraid.

comment Best practice for desktop application input validation
It is a UX question, but this is not a UX answer. You have not detailed the User Experience that would be present. You have only included comment that WPF is nice for programmers (which is irrelevant to this UX question) and then given some implementation advice (which is off topic for this UX stack exchange site) and have included a link; but not stated what part of that link is relevant, or why.

comment Best practice for desktop application input validation
None of this post actually answers the question asked. "Do we change the values from incorrect ones to a default correct one?" All you have done is say 'do what microsoft do' but then not actually explained what that is and why it is appropriate. (Adding a link and expecting everyone to click through to it and find the answer themselves doesn't really qualify as an answer in its own right, it's just a link).

comment When having an option for Landscape mode, what all screen elements should be retained? All, none or selectively?
There is no correct answer here. It's going to depend a lot on how many elements are present on your design, what type of application / site it is, how large the imagery is, what dimensions the device is, what the screen resolution is... It's different for all situations so there is no correct answer aside from; if everything looks crap at a certain dimension then put a breakpoint in and rearrange the content so it doesn't look crap anymore.

comment Drag and drop between two List<string>
This isn't a User Experience question, you already know what the UX is that you want to provide (i.e. drag and drop). What you're asking here is how to implement it. That's not what we're here for I'm afraid.

comment What is the best picture for Car Insurance and Loan eye catchers?
This isn't really a User Experience question. It's going to depend on your brand strategy and marketing direction. And even then there isn't a 'correct' answer. If there were then everyone would use the same image.

comment Alternatives to tooltips in tablets?
While that may well be a technical way of displaying tooltips, I'm not sure it's particularly discoverable by the user. For example - how would the user know that one button has a tooltip and another doesn't?

comment User Interface for Role Management
Can you edit and re-upload those images? They're tiny because you've left loads of white-space on the right of them.

comment How do adverts in a list view affect user behaviour?
That is as may be, but it's not really an answer to the question. Otherwise "do an AB test" would just be a valid answer to 99% of the posts on this site.

comment Chat / drawing game user interface flow
How many chat rooms is 'several'? Because the first thought is just to segment the basic chat screen into columns / rows and have each 'cell' as one chat window. But if you're expecting people to be simultaneously in 10 rooms at once then that's a bit trickier to design.

comment Building an archive of insights into our users
I've removed the request for software here. The question should focus on the actual UX issue, not requests for different pieces of software that will get out of date and leave answers less useful over time.

comment Alternatives to tooltips in tablets?
Yeah, forcing the user to see the tooltip content every time even when they've seen it hundreds of times before isn't really ideal. How often do you re-check a tooltip on an item after you've already seen it once before?
