I tried to come up with a tag for questions relating to the ux field itself - its career, training and other general aspects. I'd call it "meta", but, well, that's obviously not a very bright idea. For the time being I went for and tagged a few questions. I don't think it's the perfect term for it - maybe someone has a better idea?

P.S. In case you think that questions like that are off-topic, please flag/vote to close them, or open a separate question on Meta. This one is about the wording of the tag.

P.P.S. The subject doesn't mean "general questions on the subject of UX", but rather "specific questions on the general subject of UX" - which aren't the same thing.

  • Towards the end it occurred to me that P.S. could well stand for Preventive Strike :) Commented Jul 17, 2011 at 19:06
  • This is a good discussion to have as it led to the creation of programmers.SE when StackOverflow went through the same debate. Obviously we don't have a large enough community to support creation of (another) subcommunity, so it's worth discussing how we should approach this.

  • I would say flag or vote to close if you can. We need more of the community to get involved in moderating. Commented Jul 17, 2011 at 22:55

You're right: It's a meta tag, and by any other name it would still be meta.

Most of the questions would fit under . We have a tag, but "career-development" is less ambiguous and can also cover education and training that precede employment in the field.

  • I'm also leaning towards looking for specific tags that represent each individual question rather than blanketing them with a meta tag.
