With electric guitar, I like .10-.46; anything smaller just feels and sounds too thin to me. I've been thinking about trying .11s because I play acoustic more and am more used to .12s, but I've been too lazy to try. As far as scale length goes, it doesn't affect what gauge I use at all.
On a funny and completely unrelated note, when I ran this post through spell check, it suggested that I change ".11" and ".12" to "ass." What the hell is up with that?

10s because they have a nice blend of tension and ease of playing.

I've had .10s on all my electrics, but my new PRS came with 9's on it, and I'm actually like it better. Just a tad bit easier to bend and play quicker, with no loss of tone quality. So I might restring the others to the smaller guage in the future.

a bunch of fierce thick fingerd' sums', as of so. I played 11's through the past two decades, yet unovidable obstuction, has caused relent in the aformentioned...
