Inline editing

Hi all,
I am looking for some interesting examples/thoughts on in-line editing
(editing the properties of a table line item without opening any dialogs).
Please share any examples, experiences or thoughts in this area.

people's thoughts on a walled community for designers/developers?

I recently came across an ad for http://mintpages.net/ which presents itself
as "A private community for forward thinking designers and developers to
engage in discussions of design and development related topics."

You need to tell some anonymous person how great you are before they'll let
you in. Anyone a member? Do you have a secret handshake? What are the
initiation rights like? Needless to say..

How much setup information to give test participants

I'm preparing a usability test on a major redesign of an online
marketplace for manufacturing. Our customers are going to see major
changes to the way they source RFQs using our online app. I am planning
to go into the interviews without telling the participants what has
changed. There will be emails and online training before and after the
launch. However, we all know people usually skip over this material.

Would it be fair to give the participants a brief explanation about how
the process has changed?

Re: [IxDA] Time estimates for Interaction design

Jimmy, there are no "novice questions".

I suggest you give them a "deadline" and 'early date' (if the project is completed earlier than expected) and a 'late date' (if something happens that makes the project be completed after the deadline; this is to give you some "breathing space" so that the deadline isn't 'set on stone')

Also, you could have broken this post in 2: first post (introduction), and your question about time estimates.

Have a Nice Day.

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?

Mint (ok now Intuit) CEO gets it

Who convinced and taught this left-brain oriented engineer/CEO that
the user experience mattered? Please have them write a book how; many
of us go through this painful experience every day.

Most lab setups I've seen involve a 'face cam' to capture user
reactions. Having run many sessions and captured them to video tape, I
can't say I've ever reviewed the face cam footage.
