Lovely to meet you via email, Pierre, and looking forward to our voice
call tomorrow. Now, to answer some of your inquiries:
--When I say "macro-level templates" I am referring to big-picture
user experience sort of things. Over the progression of our study we
have landed upon 4 main areas: a Social Approach, Onboarding/Training,
Validation, & Better Organization.
Some examples of ideas we've kicked around:
**Social Approach: making real-time teams based on who is mapping with
you at the same time that you can communicate with (chat/message) as
part of the TM
**Onboarding/Training: consolidating existing training resources under
a drop down menu item in a persistent navigation bar
**Validation: breaking the task down into manageable chunks and making
it less binary with "Looks Good" instead of "Validate" and "Needs
Work" instead of "Invalidate."
**Better Organization: In addition to a common navigation bar, having
a search function and an FAQ. Focus on "killing the ecosystem" and
integrating the various parts of HOT (or at least making clear what
they all are from the main HOT url).
--Design is more user experience. In fact, any mock-ups we make will
likely be medium fidelity.
--We have been looking at the following version of the V2 TM:
--Yup, we went through the V1 feedback link that Mikel Maron sent us
in addition to the Github requests and our classmates' (~60 students,
I believe) feedback.

There's been discussion of this within the Technical Working Group. But we want to widen the feedback, and the views forward. I'll follow up soon with more details, and we can all figure out a good time to gather somewhere online to discuss in real time.
