Allow users to update their age. Why? Users can make a mistake during initial age entry. Users may also provide a fake age when initially registering with your site if they (1) were asked for personal information without understanding why, (2) didn't realize precision mattered beyond choosing a date over some age threshold like 18, or (3) before they ...

1ST ANSWER: I normally don't really care about the terminology used to describe the assets that are created using a UCD process, but I do care about the quality and accuracy of the information it captures. So to me I think your description of the two types of information captured is pretty close to the mark, but I couldn't tell you if that's the exact ...

I think you should allow users to correct their age (date of birth, or whatever). Sometimes people create their accounts and they don't care about some stuff, or they don't want to give too much info about themselves (I'm one of those people :) ). And after they realise that it wasn't such a good idea, they would like to correct it to buy your goods. On the ...

So you're basically replacing the visual variable of position to denote a negative value with the visual variable of colour - this has been termed a 'mirrored' chart. The positives as you're seeing is that it saves space, the negatives are people may not understand it and it may cause some issues for the colour-blind (though red-blue problems are not as ...

Information Architecture is a huge subject (so much so there is a very large but excellent book written by Louis Rosenfeld and Peter Morville on the subject - Information Architecture for the World Wide Web 3rd Edition). A site map is a simple output of all of the AI work, and is consumable by the end user.

You should My friend had a problem, that he accidentally mis-set his age. Then, he couldn't change it, and because it was a kind-of age oriented service, and he stopped using it. I don't really remember, but it might be Steam or Origin. So you really should enable people to change them age, such as sex and name. There are transgender people out there. ...

Absolutely not Here's why: Generally, a persons name,brithdate,sex and other permanent individual criteria do not change. If your website is trying to restrict underage people to purchase items that they arent allowed to purchase by law, it would be irresponsible to let them change their age whenever they feel like it since this is pretty much one of the ...

As you know you're relying on colour to depict up/down which isn't great especially as both types of change are reflected in an upward facing bar. Some ideas 1) Place the change as a label on each bar e.g. -17% or +38% 2) Change to up and down bars and move it up above the tab labels like below 3) Move the negative change bars below the tab labels ...

Make negative values go below the axis. Your proposed design may gain slightly in the level of precision shown. However, I doubt this really matters. Even if you keep the chart in the same vertical space, I think you will adequately show the differences between bars. Plotting positive and negative values both in the same direction makes the chart a lot ...
