linkedin – How do I know if my Connection Request was Approved, Declined or not (yet) answered?

I would have few questions that are by far more complex than what the title of the post is saying. For better understanding of my questions, lets just assume I was adding (connection request) person “X” Could someone please help me with the following:

  1. Before I sent connection request, there had been obviously button “Connect” on X’s profile but now this button on his profile is gone. What could that mean?

  2. When I sent connection request, I remember that there was button “Pending” but I don’t remember if new button “Pending” occurred or button “Connect” changed its title to “Pending”. However, the button “Pending” is gone from X’s profile. What could that mean?

  3. On X’s profile are now two buttons. One is “Message” and another is “More”. If I click on “More” then dropdown menu occurs with the following options: Share profile via message, Save to PDF, Follow, Pending, Report / Block. Could you please tell me what is the functionality and meaning of “Pending” in this dropdown menu? I tried to click on it but nothing happens. Absolutely nothing. No redirection, no pop up message, etc. Kindly note that this message is completely different than second one with different “Pending” reference point (location on profile).

  4. If I click on “My Network” then I can see at the top whether or not I have some pending invitation requests (connection requests) from others who added me but I haven’t responded yet. Where could I see vice versa: Where could I see who I added but he/she/they hasn’t/haven’t responded to my connection request yet?

I’m already aware of the easiest way if X (or anyone else) approved my connection request: I simply check my Connections list. However, this has nothing to do with my four questions.

Please if someone could help me, I would appreciate a lot.

ux designer – Do you criticize my answers and how would you have answered these UX interview questions?

Some time ago I had an interview for a UX designer position. I made it to the second round, where I received a review to redesign a form and then present it. The presentation went well, but I stumbled when questions were asked.

1. Q: What part of the design process would the developers involve? When would you hand over the finished model to the developers?
My process was as follows: (empathize) -> (define) -> (ideas) -> (prototype)
Empathy: competition research, user research
Define: project scope, persona
Idea: user flow
Prototype: sketching, high-fi model, interactive prototype

My answer was to include development in the idea and prototype phase because the idea generator phase would give developers an idea of ​​the overall skeleton and structure of the product. During the prototype phase, they would be able to take a look at the models and see if there were concerns about the features involved. And if none, then we can devote ourselves to development.

2. Q: The overall shape is pretty "white". Would you add new colors to the design?

My answer was that it would depend on which colors would be introduced as it should follow the brand guidelines to ensure consistency across the website. I think they were looking for something clearer and clearer than "it depends"?

3. Q: How would you design differently for users who are not technically savvy?

I struggled the most with this question. I said something like … since it's a form, users may not be able to tell that some items are checkboxes (can select multiple checkboxes) or that it is a drop-down menu. We can also add more text / clear instructions to the design to give users an idea of ​​what this particular function is looking for, i.e. H. You can select multiple check boxes. What were interviewers looking for here?

4: Q: Since your proto-persona is about a guy named George who works at XXXX and is tech savvy, what about the customers who are not tech savvy?

I also struggled with this question and said: Now that a proto-persona is used to represent the majority of our target audience, we would have separate proto-personas for the rest of the target audience. For example, if we have 20%, 20%, 20% and 40% that represent our target audience, we would have 4 different proto-personas. If it is a 5%, 40%, 40% and 15% split, we would have two proto-personas for the 40% audience. To be honest, I was confused at this point, just trying to answer them.

I just wanted to see how others would answer these questions.

macos – Calls cannot be answered if both an Ethernet and a WLAN connection are available

I have performed all the steps listed at

Works fine when I am only connected to Ethernet OR WLAN. If both connections are active (even if it is on the same network), I cannot answer calls on the phone with the error message: "Call failed".

And I can't just turn off WiFi and lose AirDrop / etc, still unplug the Ethernet cable and lose speed / stability.

Any options?

When were women allowed to vote in the US for the first time?

The election of Lydia Taft in 1756 is generally recognized as the first confirmed woman to vote, but I have read that there were certainly cases in which women have previously voted.

That was colonial America, of course. Both women and men, who owned land, could vote in 1776 in New Jersey.
