Help: Assigning unique URL's to teams in a network

Hi everyone:

Here¹s my problem for which I¹m thinking through a solution.

A client is building a web site to allow coaches to manage teams. In the
sign-up process, the coach is required to enter a team name, such that the
teams page resolves to ³http://www.redsox.thissite.com. I realize that
around the country, there are hundreds, if not thousands of teams that call
themselves the Red Sox. What is the recommended differentiator?

UX Generalists & Specialists

Hi all,

I'm fairly new to UX/IX design, and I've seen so many people talk
about the benefits/shortcomings of generalists vs. specialists. I had
to take a swing at it, and I think I've cleared up the real issue:

Instead of just asking "which is better" we should be asking
"which is better for our business?"

Too many times the UX civil war seems to revolve around broad skills
or narrow skills, and as far as I can tell, it doesn't matter which
skill set you have. Both are valuable and necessary.
