2 fantastic and creative solutions. This would be my best answer.

comment What is the author referring to with “UX mail lists”?
The author may well have done. If they did, it was very subtle and was not the takeaway that I got. You could always ask him directly @Stephenturbek twitter.com/Stephenturbek

It is just how it works by default. No need for a reference. When you select an option, the option is shown within the input area.

This will take up slightly less screen real estate than the 2 select boxes I shown in my first example but you will need to also consider the following: 1). This is only good for limited amount of options, the example of select movies would be too long a list. This is only good for high recall 2). You will need a JavaScript fallback, which will likely be the 2 select boxes option 3). Possibility of confusing users as this is not usual behaviour for select options (being able to use it multiple times), and the control itself normally displays answer 4). You will need to disable after 2 choices

@BenBrocka You are still referring hierarchical links to breadcrumbs! It is a common misconception, and the giveaway really is in the name.

comment Breadcrumbs and selected page
I think you are confusing breadcrumb trail with hierarchical links. A breadcrumb trail will track exactly where you have been, so the example shown by @rlemon is valid. What you are describing in your answer is hierarchical links, which yes, will follow the directory structure. Think of Hansel and Gretel when you think of breadcrumbs, they need to retrace their steps, so it is in fact a history!

comment Piloting end-to-end UX process for IT staff on intranet
The only issue I can see arising from such a pilot test is that IT staff have a higher tolerance for sub-par UX, which means they'll complain only about overly convoluted elements. Can you back this up with evidence that this is true?

comment Piloting end-to-end UX process for IT staff on intranet
Previously worded question: Will completing an end-to-end UX process for IT staff on the proposed intranet as an initial pilot cause any detriment to future user-centred design on the system?
