At the time of the above "reasoning", Flat design trends were barely even a thing, and mobile interface design consideration was nowhere near as influential or dominant as it is now. Icons weren't anywhere near as relevant or significant in interface design, either. Given the HIG of Apple and the predominance of two significant companies and their massive ...

We should change our FAQ's first section to read: User Experience - Stack Exchange is for User Experience Designers, Information Architects, and Human Computer Interaction researchers. How's that for a first draft? Please vote to indicate support and comment if you think anything should be changed/added/ect I've gone and added this in as there have been ...

As a general rule, I hate shutting down questions that have even a tangential UX connection.

I don't think it was because the FAQ didn't cover what is allowable here. As for other questions, even if we amend the FAQ with improvements to scope, there will still be ...

Eh. I don't buy it. Random sites get random off topic questions, I don't have a shadow of a doubt that he read the FAQ, understood the apparent scope of the site and thought that post was appopriate here. I'm all for improving the FAQ, but explicitly listing everything that's off topic is the opposite of an improvement. If there's a very common new user ...
