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.

@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

Short answer. Yes. Next time, you probably want to ask this over at the main Stack Overflow.

comment Best practices for rollovers on mobile?
Agree with @Henry about #4. Have to say in most cases, there's probably no harm in showing the visual clue (e.g. i icon) on desktop. Rollovers aren't exactly the easiest thing to discover without that.

comment Why do RPGs show conversations in windows with talking head animation?
Guessing here. But most rpgs are clones off previously successful titles. Perhaps back in the days, it's much easier to dedicate text within windows. It's possible nowadays, but it's more work. Dialog has never been a key part of rpgs. Players are used to these windows, so why bother spending the dev effort in changing it? It's much better to focus on graphics and "actual" game play.
