I started a discussion on Area51 about the UI merging. Please participate with the open mind.

I don't think it would work for the reasons I outline in my answer


Merging with anything else currently out there except UXExchange (a SE1.0 site) is a very bad idea. I still think UI/UX belongs in a forum and not the SE model.

  • What part of the SE model do you feel wouldn't fit UI/UX ? For example, I personally prefer UI.SE because it is connected to the other SE sites unlike UXExchange.

  • @user2891 - UI/UX is far more often a discussion - not a Q&A type topic. Stack Exchange (1.0 OR 2.0 - so UXExchange is included in that) is a platform for Q&A, not discussion. As such - neither UI.SE or UXExchange should actually exist using this platform - they would both be better served by a forum. Feb 17, 2011 at 19:21

    I see, good point indeed. In that case, a site like Quora may fit your wishes better then.
