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?

Search History

I have recently noticed that more sites and search engines (notably, Bing) are exposing Recent Searches - that is, the most recent keyword phrases used are presented on Results pages.  It would seem to me that a best practice should be that users should have the ability to clear the history, or opt-out of having that information saved and presented by default.

Is there a general consensus out there about this?  Thoughts?

Google Fast Flip

"Fast Flip is a new reading experience that combines the best
elements of print and online articles. Like a print magazine, Fast
Flip lets you browse sequentially through bundles of recent news,
headlines and popular topics, as well as feeds from individual top

I like the addition of recommended and popularity filters, which I
hope spread to other Google products.

Consistency and conceptual integrity

The importance of consistency, and what consistency really means with regard to software design,
has to be one of the most misunderstood and misapplied principles. I am constantly tortured by
development with the misuse of this concept.

I would love to get comments/feedback/thoughts from any interested list members regarding my
post on this.

Cabn we start to redesign your list so it's more user friendly?

It needs to have feeds under different headings on one page and then we can
delve into the area of interest and the relevant posts. I love the listbut
it's just too hard to find what you want and archives. Event if we made each
subject a hotlink that went to that section like in yahoogroup posts or
development of the categories section on your website.

Drop down list,

Hi All,
I would prefer the alphabetical order and let the user
type the first alphabet and the list displays making
the user selection easy, rather than the user
searching the whole list off countries....
