Is it ok to ask for opinions about a specific UI example? or do questions have to stay objective and theoretical?

  • Just as an FYI there is a wonderful community (and still pretty young) over at conceptfeedback.com where you can submit such designs and get all the opinionated feedback you want - including some from yours truly. :-) Commented Aug 12, 2010 at 22:39

It would be OK to upload an image of a UI, but I would still ask a very specific question about it. Not just 'what do you think?' but 'what do you think about the position of this button?'.

There's a million different UI's, and if everyone uploads theirs and asks for opinions, it's going to be a huge mess. Asking specific questions is going to narrow this down, and opens possibilities for reuse. Similar UI elements might be found in other applications as well, and questions about them will be of use to others.

    +1 Agree. A UI sketch is ideal when used to clarify the author's question. This should not become a "what do you think of my design?" or "do my work for me" site. Commented Aug 10, 2010 at 18:46
  • +1 also agree, and I submit that if you're having specific problems and ask about them with a UI sketch, you're bound to get some feedback on other elements as well. This makes the problem both findable, and other problems more discoverable. Commented Aug 15, 2010 at 21:21
