comment Ideal breaks for long numbers?
You could take advantage of letters if you convert the numbers to base 36 (26 letters + 10 digits). This shortens the GUID to 8-9 characters. For example: 12345678912345 => 4DJIYGV2X. Might want to exclude certain visually similar characters though (1I and 0O), giving you a base 32.

As far as others having solved this goes, you should have a look at Highstock charts.

comment Display big numbers in a small area
I never notice the kviews. I realize a question is "big" from the color difference and the relatively high number of votes and answers; that's what makes it stick out for me. The kviews only acts as a confirmation when I look more closely and consciously after I already realized it's a popular question.

comment Is a “Never tell your password to anyone” message in chat really necessary?
Another aspect of not telling anyone your password in chat is logging. Even if you trust the person, the chat might still be logged both on your end, their end and possibly on the server end. No one wants their passwords stored in log files anywhere, but they might not realize that this could happen just by sending it in a chat.

comment Are age verification banners effective?
+1 for creativity, but unfortunately it will only be a small hindrance yet a big annoyance.

comment How do you give your user options without overloading them?
This motivates me to give Directory Opus a(nother?) try. Explorer and Total Commander is just not doing it for me anymore...

comment Could scaring users be good UX?
As a user, if I'm tweaking the advanced settings then I'm doing that because I need to tweak the advanced settings. If the settings have unclear, cryptic and/or meaningless names then chances are I'm going to do more harm than good before I finally find the right settings to tweak. At that point the application will probably be left with some horrible configuration because I can't remember half of all the changes I made. Two days later I discover that the settings were actually documented somewhere.
