It hasn't been a problem (in fact I'm not sure I've ever seen it done). It should be fine as long as it's completely relevant to the answer/question (like any image)and it's not overly distracting. I would only use it when it is useful in answering the question and displays some form of interaction or whatever that can't be easily/effectively expressed in ...

Both problems are seen on StackExchange sites: Some answers are written as comments. Some things that should be comments are written as answers. The benefit of commenting vs using the answers StackExchange sites are not fora: if every single little comment is at the same level in the thread, how do you find the relevant answer? Thanks to votes, maybe. ...

From the Comments privilege page: What are comments? Comments are temporary "Post-It" notes left on a question or answer. They can be up-voted (but not down-voted) and flagged, but do not generate reputation. There's no revision history, and when they are deleted they're gone for good. Please note that you can always comment on your own posts, and ...

I've been noticing some patterns in which you can predict the number of answers provided based on the type of question that's been asked. Basically anything that's "hard to answer" tends to be unanswered. This is really unfortunate because some of these are gems. Here are two types I find are legit UX questions with poor answer rates. Questions with ...

It's a visual cue to show the answered state. It's black with no background to show unanswered questions, green text no background to show answered ones, and green text with a green background image to show questions with an accepted answer.

There is nothing incorrect about <hr> in HTML. It would, indeed, be invalid XHTML, but this site does not output XHTML; nor does it claim to.

I tend to answer many more questions than I ask. It's not that I have no questions, but many questions have already been asked and answered. New users tend to not know the questions exist and don't bother searching for them. When I do have a question that hasn't clearly already been asked and answered, I usually eventually answer it myself. Once I have an ...

I believe this is not true. So experienced UX designers know so much that they have no questions? I can't answer for UX.SE but I see it all the time in GD.SE: high-rep users asking great questions. Of course it's not daily, since the volume of lower rep users is much higher.

Funny I was just thinking this as I scrolled through the list of questions and read the answers. I've been away from UX stack exchange for a while and it does feel like it has changed somewhat. There seem to be less experts involved. Wondering if there are things we can do to attract them back?

I think you would want to ask your question and provide the two answers you mentioned as possible solutions. Then ask the community what they think would be the best solution and why. And maybe even ask if they might know of an even better solution. If other people agree with the answer provided by someone else, they'll upvote it. This will be a good ...

I would agree that it's good practice, but next to impossible to enforce. I don't necessarily know where your conflict of interest is or isn't, so I can do little about it if you don't declare one.

I’ll split the question into two answer sections, since I feel that they are related but needs different answers. Answer in collaborative fashion There is always the possibility to mark an answer as community wiki. That way anyone can contribute to the answer, without restrictions. The problem is that community wikis doesn’t give reputation score to anyone, ...

To put it in more correct technical terms than TRiG: 6: Then, if the element is one of the void elements, or if the element is a foreign element, then there may be a single U+002F SOLIDUS character (/). This character has no effect on void elements, but on foreign elements it marks the start tag as self-closing. (Source: http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec-...

I think a lot of question will be left unanswered as soon as they leave the front page. The solution to that is to put a bounty on the question, but not all people have the privilege to do so, or the term is not clear for some people. Other than that, losing reputation could be a steep price. I don't know what implications lowering the amount of reputation ...

So UX.SE is in good shape comparing to SharePoint.SE with 5k of 31k unanswered and almost 10k with no upvoted answers. This leads to that on SharePoint.SE we don't know what we're talking about since we can't answer, but we're to ignorant to notice :-) But seriously folks, on SP.SE we try to build a community, before we can rule on anything. We got a lot of ...
