Why isn't there a UX.SE Careers page?

Should it be mandatory for people to explain upvote and downvotes on answers and comments?

Voting on SE is anonymous. That means that we can't force users to add comments while they vote. Up votes is pretty straight forward: a user found the answer useful. But down votes are different. That'...

Should badge classes be described by shape as well as colour?

I fundamentally disagree with this, I'm afraid. A picture is not an answer, it's just a picture. Other than the accessibility issues an image doesn't give any reasoning as to why it solves it. An ...

Enable Stack Snippets on UX

I think this would encourage too many off-topic questions, or encourage users to answer in a more implementation-driven way. For example: Q: When should I tell the user their password is about to ...
