comment Editing an array of numbers which length is variable
I think that more than one attribute in a single text field will lead to quite a lot of confusion along any non-programming-savvy users. Even more confusing is the second suggestion, for it combines separating and non-separating of information in one input group. This one screams for confusion. I'm shivering at the mere thought of possible hint-texts for these fields.

comment Why are Inverted Colors considered an accessibility feature?
You also need to think about the phsyics of the medium. A computer screen is emitting light. Light text on a dark background is perceived to have stronger contrast because, actually, it does, because the glow doesn't run "in" from outside the letterforms, but out of them. Also the screen is not, compared to paper or E-Ink, a constant image, but a "flickering" one (even at nowadays high rates). This tires the eyes. Less white = less flickering = less strain on the eyes.

Thanks. What aspects make you doubt it will work in your case? Maybe that will help us find a better solution.

comment Why don't most elevator panels let you unselect?
Greta discovery. Will have to try this from now on, too. Elevator buttons beware, ux.stackexchange has come to hold you for a few seconds.

comment Nested Creation Forms
Yes, it's a complex point to start from. On the other hand, as your example shows, it's a view everybody knows. Windows users know it from the explorer, mac users from the finder. It is a well-established pattern. Also, many web-applications are using hierarchical menues on the left (e.g. wordpress), so the basic principle I think is relatively easy to comprehend. Granted, these are all assumptions and the true practicability can only be determined by testing with the actual users.

Well, from a UX-standpoint one doesn't make requirements for a UI when there are better alternatives. I think the replies here clearly state the consensus that what your client wants is not in the best interest of the user.

comment Collecting testing recruits without using a recruiting firm
I wouldn't say they're mutually exclusive. It really depends on what requirements you have for the list. If the friends & family work for your testing requirements, might as well ask to put them on a list. For our requirements, we didn't need a list, we just grabbed a couple of people as we needed them and that worked for us.
