    In the last one, pretty sure 'ntshingwayo' was inspect-elemented, as other elements of the site match ('did you mean' recommendations, etc)

    Perhaps "Null Null" was originally "Null", but various systems didn't like that. Google says "null" in Norwegian is "zero", as in "zero, one, two, three...".

    Null Null is moderately clearly visible on Goggle Mapse if you drag the little yellow dude onto the road outside the lower-right side of the relevant rectangle, even if the frontage is pretty small, and the font used is very unclear...

    On the other hand, https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/wrassle has a pretty clear explanation of what "wrassle" means and why it's spelled like that, although I refuse to speculate on its accuracy. (Well, it aligns pretty well with my pre-existing understanding of "wrassle", but ...) On the other hand, no idea how dictionary.com made that leap, although it seems to be fixed now.

    The last one is actually a bit of a conundrum: clearly, the "Don't show this again" checkbox should be below the "No"/"Yes" buttons, since it applies to the entire form. On the other hand, the flow should stop at these buttons, as these are submitting the form. (There may be also accessibility issues involved.)

    However, there's no problem in UX that can't be solved by another level of pop-up abstraction: Just trigger another pop-up after the form has been submitted, asking, whether the previous window should be shown again or not. Maybe, yet another pop-up could clarify, when "again" exactly is? Just now, or, let's say, next time?

    And there can only be one place called double Zero. Or /dev/nullnull as we call it. www [dot] scjproducts [dot] info/de-de/germany/null-null

    Now I want to start a restaurant called [object Object]

    Alternate solution: have four buttons! "Yes and don't ask me again", "Yes, but ask again next time", "No and don't ask me again", "No, but ask again next time"

    I love that NullNull's website is nullnull.no

    When the Classmates server got the instruction to generate that ad it "thought" 'Look who just showed up, well Jesus Christ'.

    I've clicked "Yes" and "Don't show me this again" a thousand times. But it never works, because Microsoft software never works.

    Alternate solution: have four buttons! "Yes and don't ask me again", "Yes, but ask again next time", "No and don't ask me again", "No, but ask again next time"

    And then two more buttons: "none of the above" and "all of the above, but obviously not the none of the above"

    Alternate solution: have four buttons! "Yes and don't ask me again", "Yes, but ask again next time", "No and don't ask me again", "No, but ask again next time"

    In terms of modern UX, it's just the wrong way round. The checkbox should be really about staying signed in, followed by the question, "Do you want to see this dialog again?", with option buttons

    • Yes, display it in an endless loop
    • Yes, show always
    • Yes! (with heart icon)
    • Maybe later (in faint grey print)

    Ntshingwayo is the name of my village in KwaZulu-Natal you mampara!

  • Tim R (unregistered) in reply to NoLand

    Actually IMO only 3 options make sense: remember me and don't ask again; don't remember me and don't ask again; don't remember me this time but ask again next time. It's just unfortunate that the MS default is the one that doesn't make sense. I have seen a similar UI that used radio buttons for those 3 and it was obvious what was going on.

    That almost makes sense if this is an Italian restaurant and serves pizza. The name could be a reference to 00 flour.
