Why You Shouldn’t Gray Out Disabled Buttons(uxmovement.com)

    This article doesn't show any evidence. It's just opinionated.

    A good demonstration would be to show results, like "we tested the form with the gray button, 66% of the users thought X". Instead, it bases all the premise on the author bias, therefore, you are reading their logic. Like the greatest book ever: "Everything is obvious", your common sense is not the same as mine.

    There was plenty of articles talking about putting the CTA button on the top, green color over red, and other people proved this was a false, logically biased premise. I've read blog posts about CTAs at the bottom converting better than at the top. This is the problem with UX articles, they're based on logical fallacies and not conclusive data.

      I think the Baymard Institute is a legitimate source of UX information. On the other hand, this UXMovement site is just clickbait spam and the author(s) come in here and act like children when anyone disagrees.
