I finished the planing for the interactive prototype that I will present on the Final Review on May 17th.
It consists of an interactive walkthrough with 4 scenarios and 16 individual tasks. It is divided in two sections for the different target users: guests and hosts.
The users will be taken through the prototype with popup guiding messages made with jQuery. All the user have to do is follow the instructions that pop up.

NobleCount is a customizable jQuery plugin for a more improved counting of the remaining characters, and handling of resulting behaviors, of a text entry object, e.g. input textfield, textarea. It counts how many characters are being typed on a text field or text area, and provides a feedback to the user showing how many characters are remaining.
It was created by The Product Guy, under dual licensed under GPL and MIT, and I will try to use it on text areas, specially for private messages between users and also on rental property definitions, and property reviews.
