comment Show zero or nothing when displaying gold, silver, and bronze tokens?
Agreed. Sometimes less is more. Putting in 0 adds unnecessary clutter.

comment Temporarily storing tester data on an interactive wireframe?
Don't know of any wireframing tool that allows this. Normally, I would code up a basic html prototype and store this info using browser's local data storage as a JSON string. Each page will pull this from the local dataset. This requires some coding knowledge to create though.

comment How to compare two items in a small space?
When you say "content" what exactly does that include? Is it an image? text? location data? Also does the elements all have similar set of info? Sometimes you might be better off displaying items in a table to improve scan-ability of like information between items.

comment Should you change your prototype mid-test?
Agreed. Fixing glaring issues ASAP also means your remaining testers won't get tripped up on the same issue. This means they have more mental energy to focus on other potential issues your first users haven't have the time to express.

comment Using black for CTA
In the test you've set up, I choose black as well. I was more influenced by the lack of color on the icon on the left as oppose to the color of your CTA. I found the green on the magnifying glass to be distracting because it was much brighter than the light blue CTA.

comment What is an surface-perpendicular wheel control called?
No clue what it is called, but does it look something like a biscuit joint if the biscuit is circular? i00.i.aliimg.com/img/pb/978/147/580/580147978_065.jpg

@Odalrick Could you throw up a diagram? I'm not sure whether I understand what you meant.

comment Challenge: I want to assign a task to a user with dependencies
@SteveJones You would think so. But no, I've looked at project management softwares out there. They seem to have simple tracking for individual projects. Nothing that accounts for multiple projects.

comment What are you looking for in design interviews?
Agree with @DA01, you might also want to do user shadowing to confirm what they say is actually what they do.

comment When is it ok to skip discovery?
@TyFairclough you may be able to help alleviate some of your stakeholder's concerns about individual elements, e.g. Form layout, by bringing up best practices and research others have done to come up with these best practices. It really sounds like a trust issue with a brand new team. Perhaps it might not be a bad idea to ask them right out, given the time constraints what more validation do them need besides external research and go from there.

comment When is it ok to skip discovery?
Ah what I've described above is the ideal case where you're given the budget and time. If you don't, then whatever quick hallway testing you can get in, people from other departments acting as surrogate users is better than having nothing. We as experts are fallible. Anything you can get in serves as a sanity check. This matches what you call "fast tracking". And I've done it plenty of times. It's one of the first steps in getting your company to value UX and the discovery process. Highly recommend the book Undercover User Experience Design on this topic. undercoverux.com
