I love this site. I am here to learn, and try to contribute back as much as possible. Feel free to contact me at rdeslonde@deslondesoftware.com.

As an aside, I can't thank everyone on this site enough for their answers. This site (and it's sister sites through SE) are INVALUABLE.

comment Do users read pop up messages/notifications/error messages, etc.?
@MichaelLai I disagree. I rarely read popups even when they pop up in the middle of the screen in modal with the background darkened...I just don't and I don't think very many people do either.

Hi @Izhaki! Thanks. That's true. It's at the top of the screen. Users won't switch very often. The main issue is that I am out of space for radio buttons.

accepted When formatting numeric data with rounding, should the total line reflect the total of the rounded data, or the raw, unrounded data?

Hmmm...I like the idea of bankers rounding.

@RumiP. It's not that the users will sum up the numbers, it's that they have other dashboards and indicators that give the aggregated value, so they KNOW what the total value should be. Their checks an balances will not agree. But I think I agree with you that you should sum the real numbers and round the total to arrive at your aggregate value.

@JørnE.Angeltveit I'm asking about the UX context. The more data getting summed into a total you have, the more the problem is compounded and you could have totals that are wildly different from their real value.

Answering the questions...I want to round to make it easier to read. There is a lot of data on the screen...decimals make noise on the screen (the client asked for rounded numbers for this reason).

comment What is the most minimal sign up process possible?
Good questions. 1. My mistake, that should have been on step 2. I have edited my question accordingly. 2. Another good point. It doesn't. 3. Again, very good point. It doesn't have to. 4. The tutorial is really to feature what makes this site different from other similar sites. I think I have some really unique features that can only be shown in context of the work flow. These are all suggestions I was looking for.

I have but I don't like being tied to someone else's system. What happens if they decide to charge, or in some other way make changes that makes my life difficult etc.?
