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 ...

You should not allow Users to change their Age or birth dates for one another reason apart from all those mentioned above If in the near future, you decide to provide some treat like (discounts/coupons etc) when your service is used on Users Birthday. Editing the age or birth date maybe misused for getting those discount deals.

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 ...

I think You should allow users to correct they age (date of birth, or whatever). Sometimes people create their accounts and they don't care about some kind of stuff, for they don't want to give too many info about them (I'm one of those persons :) ). And after they realise that it wasn't so good idea, they would like to correct it to be able to buy more of ...

A couple years ago I also had to deal with a single-page web app that contained long, wide tables and I had to think of solutions that let me present its contents adequately. Eventually I made a small js library for that (http://codepen.io/lopis/pen/OPVVPP) that allowed a user to: Toggle column visibility, with per-user persistence (I used cookies); Move ...

Column resizing and selection are good solutions but they are more of a general post design solution, dealing the symptom rather than the root cause. Also, they kind of distracting the user from his main purpose which is not to arrange the table. You should first ask your self, does the user really need all the details in the table? for what reason? Tables ...

Spotted this creative solution to too-many-columns on the local rail schedule site. In this scenario, it's problematic to predict programmatically which columns the traveler will need. Everyone always needs the stations column. The train times slide underneath the stations column as the traveler scrolls. (Oddly enough, the mobile site no longer uses this ...

It depends on what you are displaying in the table and what you want the users to do with the data in the table. Are you expecting them to: Edit the data? Compare the data? Once you know the purpose of the table from the user's perspective, i.e. their goals, then you can decided what UI features you need to think about. For example, if the user is ...

You should probably provide some more details on your issue but there are multiple solutions. Those your propose could work but it's key to know what MUST be there. Do you have columns which are not important? Then remove those. Do you have to see them all in one view? Go for horizontal scroll. Another option is to make the table headers selectable to ...

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 ...

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 ...

Site Maps will speak to what is where--even to functionality and purpose. IA will convince your project manager to spend $X on Y. I can't say how others tend to view/do it, but in practical terms, here's an example I dealt with recently. Shopping cart project with 'related items'...it's easy enough to stick them in a design and attach them as logical ...

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.

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 ...
