I'm a UX Designer focusing on improving big, complicated web applications. I do a lot of wireframing, user research, and usability testing.

I also run a blog on usability in gaming, That Game's UX. Check it out!

comment Which way should be “on” for a switch?
I agree, but wonder, would that feeling be backwards in right-to-left cultures?

Making it clear it's elapsed time in the example

comment Showing progress for a long many-step process with a discrete progress bar?
Maybe my example is misleading...I don't know how long each step will take to complete. I know some are longer, and some are shorter, but not enough to be able to put a time on it. The time in my example represents elapsed time for the current step.

They mean something to the user only in relation to how long they take. So, users probably know to expect that certain steps may take forever to complete.

I would recommend checking out some of the Nielsen Norman Group's intranet reports. This is the whole series: nngroup.com/reports/intranet-usability-guidelines. How to do research (although it seems to be focused on usability studies, which you don't want to do): nngroup.com/reports/intranet-research-overview. And about social features: nngroup.com/reports/intranet-communications

The "Extremely Rapid Usability Testing" article is an amazing resource, thanks! (and the rest of your answer is good too!)
