I saw this question and found that this was more a programming / design than userbility / UI question.

I know design is a part of UI, but this question is more about branding and finding a technical solution than anything about a UI.

Should questions like this be moves to SO?

    The question itself is UX-oriented. The discussion turned a bit programmy, but it still seems more suited for here than SO. There's definitely going to be some blur. – Robert Fraser Aug 22 '10 at 14:56

I did not ask that question from a branding point of view, as branding is not relevant to me. What is relevant is whether users have a good experience, and therefore having my app's logo in place is important from a trust point of view. Secondly, I also asked this question on StackOverflow - but there, I did ask from a programming point of view. I took care to focus on the UX here, because this is the right place to do that.

I don't think that questions like this should be moved to SO because:

  1. At its heart it is a usability comparison question, so asking it can result in a listing of pros and cons of particular UI elements in this situation, which I think is fine for this site.
  2. This question most certainly would get closed on SO because of its subjective nature, which I think is fine for that site, but not on this site.

    I don't think it would necessarily get closed on SO if you paraphrased it to their context: "What is the best payment provider API?" and then explained in your question what your parameters were for "best". It's not that subjective; the "best" is going to be something that most people can agree on based on their experiences and overall adherence to things like design patterns. – Rahul Aug 24 '10 at 19:33

I think the discussion went into programming land, because so many people are programmers.
