  • I feel the same way about the Month part of credit card expirations/forms that use month names. How many cards have the month spelled out? None I'd wager.
  • I find forms that ask me for a state with a drop down pretty confusing, period, not being in the US. How do you type in "East Sussex" into that select box again?

  • There are eight states in the US whose names start with the letter "M". Can you name them all with their two-letter abbreviations?

    Without going to http://en.wikipedia.org/ [wikipedia.org] or some such, of course.

    • Do you want the fips codes, too? It's really sad when you can spout off fips codes as easily as abbreviations. Occupational hazard, I guess.
      • For the 8 states abbrevs, I'll guess MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, and MT.

        For the 8 FIPS codes, I'll guess M1, M2, M3, M4, M5, M6, M7 and M8. :-)
  • Another question is: how many of your users are from AD (Andorra), AE (United Arab Emirates) or AF (Afghanistan), to name the first three?

    I'd like it even better if those dropdowns defaulted to the top 10 or 20 countries of the user base, with a way to enter your own country if it's not in the list. And add some karma points if it defaults to the countries that can be deduced from the language[_territory] information given in Accept-Language.
