comment Why are the controls opposite/inverted when flying in a game?
Many people play First-Person Shooters (or any game in the First Person perspective) with the vertical axis controls reversed. It's all down to personal preference. For me, it feels like pushing the head/gun forward to look down and pulling the head/gun backwards to look up.

comment Does a password strength indicator increase password strength?
My [UK] keyboard has the @ and " symbols in swapped around - so it took me a few seconds to see why qwER43"! was so weak.

comment How do i balance MI requirements with the user experience?
Is your question only "how annoying would it be?" Or would you like an alternative solution which both captures desire for option 3 and doesn't deliver a poor UX?

comment Correct way to tell file size to user
You can't know the size of the file on disk, since you don't know the size of the disk blocks. See: stackoverflow.com/a/15471774/2016172

comment Why is the “Shift” key below the home row and not on the bottom row?
The pinky finger is shorter than the other fingers. If the keyboard user is to push the shift button and another key simultaneously without having to move their hand, then the shift key is ideally placed below the home row (where it is right now). If we had fingers of all the same length, perhaps your suggestion that it would be better on the home row would have already been implemented.

comment How to inform users that they need to make sure that their system audio is on and/or that its volume is up?
Is sound optional? The wording you've chosen makes it appear that I can still have a functional (if sub-optimal) experience without any sound.

comment How to inform users that they need to make sure that their system audio is on and/or that its volume is up?
Ask the user to perform a simple task which requires them to have the sound enabled? That would allow them to opt-in to sound. You should probably also allow the user to declare they are unable/unwilling to use sound at that moment.

comment Wording for the perfect verb-based “Cancel Edits” dialog?
Why interrupt the user with a dialog in the first place? Why not exit as per their command, and allow an undo-action after the fact?

comment How to Improve the Layout of a Credits Table
Also, the pie chart you'd added is absolutely the wrong one to use. Each pack isn't a part of a whole.
