comment How to show negative values in a pie chart
Thanks for playing along. When I Googled the question I found a lot of suggestions to simply suppress the negative values. This is at least a better solution than that. And it shows that you really put some thought into it before concluding a pie chart is not the right solution.

BTW, I know a pie chart doesn't really make sense in this case. Humor me. :)

comment How long should the delay be before a tooltip pops up?
Just stumbled upon this old question. The site was sportsbusinessjournal.com Looks like the ribbon is still there as of this writing and they do have a delay. :)

@DavidOngaro Just share your experience. There are very few true "experts" on UX. I won't accept either answer until a consensus is reached.

@DavidOngaro Thanks. I've un-accepted the answer. Why don't you post an answer yourself? Can you provide some examples of applications which can be localized so that 3,14 is parsed correctly?

comment How To Display Too Much Data
Yes, all the numbers in a column should be at the same scale. If the scale is k (thousands) and some of the numbers are less than 1000 show "< 1k"

Either way, this is a great answer. I owe you a pint.

Thanks a ton, this is exactly what I wanted to know. My understanding was off by a mile. Glad to hear the world is inching toward standardization.

comment How to accessibly specify units in a table?
Yes, there's no need to put the units in each cell. The screen reader will announce the header as you enter a column and won't keep repeating the header as you move up and down within a column.

I actually landed on that page and overlooked the answer while skimming. Next time someone is looking for the same information hopefully they'll land on this page where the answer is staring them in the face.

Thank you. I did some Googling and searched the help docs before asking and couldn't find anything.

It's about accessibility. Okay, it's about accessibility testing. If User Experience Designers, Information Architects, and Human Computer Interaction researchers aren't interested in that topic, who is?
