Help: Assigning unique URL's to teams in a network

Hi everyone:

Here¹s my problem for which I¹m thinking through a solution.

A client is building a web site to allow coaches to manage teams. In the
sign-up process, the coach is required to enter a team name, such that the
teams page resolves to ³http://www.redsox.thissite.com. I realize that
around the country, there are hundreds, if not thousands of teams that call
themselves the Red Sox. What is the recommended differentiator?

Expressing levels of achievement/reputation (eBay stars)

We all know eBay stars - different stars denote accumulated reputation
or "feedback score".

I like Ebay's colored star icon system because it's more elegant
and more subtle than, say, a "five star" hotel/restaurant system.
It's more like a karate belt color ladder.

But can levels be expressed in yet subtler ways? What other graphic
elements can be used?

FW: Interaction Design Director position at Nike

I got this one off the SIGCHI Job Posting list.
It is not often that an Interaction Design title pops up and is so
clearly more than just a web design/software design role.

Shoot! I wish I could apply!
Please no discussion about the politics of Nike ...

Your favorite "tour" on a website?

Good Morning,

We're working on a project that has a somewhat complex concept to get across
without using a lot of information. Based on testing we're finding out that
some kind of tour is the way to go to introduce our product to our

We've been looking at Mint.com as a real good example of a tour. I think
Campaign Monitor has a good one too. Do you know of any other sites that use
the "tour" really well? We'd like to look at as many good examples as
possible. Suggestions are appreciated!

Graduate Project

Hi Guys,

First of all, I think I made mistake for previous email, I send a blank email accidentally due to misunderstanding "new" and "send" button.

Now I am going to explain my problem:
I am doing Master of Art in Interaction Design in Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht, The Netherlands. I need to do graduation project next year, starts January. Since I consider (and read) that in our field, we are lacking of good tools, so I am planning to make concept (and if possible) build tools that helps interaction designer to design, prototyping and analyzing his/her design.

In search of: User administration IxD examples

Hey all -

I'm looking for worthwhile IxD examples in the realm of user
administration 'enterprise' database applications (think SQL Server). We're
revamping ours and some new(-ish) ideas would be welcome.

Main users would be DBA's or system administrators tasked with setting up
and managing roles, users, & groups and their privileges with respect to
read/write data access, object creation/modification, and the like.

Maybe Vista user administration is worth a look? Are there less-known apps
you may know of that do this particularly well?
