comment How can I make it extremely clear that the user needs to take one last action?
What exactly do you mean by "Request" in "Submit Request" and "Send Request"? Does the request have to go somewhere to be approved, with a non-zero probability of rejection?

comment Why are X, Y and Z axes represented by Red, Green, and Blue?
This is just a variant of @tohster's answer, if you consider that colors are conventionally listed in rainbow order. I doubt that blackbody radiation is the explanation behind the conventional color order; few people have experience with such high temperatures.

comment Should I avoid using “abort” in favor of its synonyms?
In the OS X UI, killing a process is called "Force Quit". Apple obviously went out of their way to avoid using "kill". (The Unix command in Terminal.app is still called kill, for obvious compatibility requirements.)

comment Fallback chain for Chinese languages
@VitalyMijiritsky Now that there is an upvoted answer here, leaving the question on UX brings awareness of the issue to website designers.

comment Fallback chain for Chinese languages
@Crissov The character mapping is not one-to-one. For example, traditional characters 隻 and 只 both map to the simplified character 只 (based on the fact that they are homophones in Mandarin). Therefore, transliteration is non-trivial.

comment Fallback chain for Chinese languages
@VitalyMijiritsky It might be a better fit on Chinese (debatable), but it doesn't appear to be off-topic on UX according to my interpretation of the help center, and therefore should not be a candidate for migration.

comment How should user unselect a date from a calender?
Could you provide more context? What is the purpose of the form, and why might one want to leave a date field empty?
