In these cases I think we should close/delete and reask because it gives people the opportunity to answer it and get the full reputation. Just going in and editing someone else's stuff doesn't inspire the same motivation.

Initially it was protected. Mostly because of off-topic answers being left. But protecting doesn't, and didn't prevent it getting comments. The only way to prevent comments is to lock the post down completely. And I can tell you - It was getting a lot of comments. Not just on that question but on the answers too. This isn't a discussion forum, it's a Q&...

This question is really up to your team and your customer. Not really a good fit for UX.SE, since we can't guess what your customer wants. So head over to your project lead and ask what you should do with the features...

I think the issue is that you've invented a solution to a problem that you don't actually know exists for anyone other than yourself. But I sometimes might prefer speaking with a woman, and other times prefer speaking with a man when it involves getting product support or theoretically any type of service. Have you done any market research to see if ...

You've already asked the question right here better than you did in the question itself: "Why add another [notification type] for the moderator election?" The problem I had with the question is the only question you asked was "how many notifications on SE are there?". This question is not a UX question in any way. That is definitely a question for MSO, not ...

It's not a bug, I reopened it :)

You could make the question community wiki so neither of you get rep, but the question can still be answered. You can delete the question and ask a new one, and Glen could copy/paste his text into a new question. You can roll back the edits and let Glen copy/paste his text from the version history.

For that particular question - as it is written it's not really ideally suited to this site. There isn't really a correct answer to 'what size should a logo be' in the context that it has been asked. And even if there were a correct answer it isn't a User Experience issue that the Original Poster is having. Whatever option they choose isn't going ...

If you want to know what makes a good question, you could take a look here. As for the question you mentioned. It is a proper question else it would have been closed, but the question is probably not popular because the original poster (OP) is basically asking other people to research for him. He's not specifically asking their expert opinion in the matter, ...

I understand you need to test some ideas because it is a problem for each functionality that prevents it from becoming a feature. I think if you can describe your problem or what you want to know, here, even you add a specific example with a mockup, the users will help you. It will be ok if the example is the base of a question that can be generalised and ...

I noticed this question was locked today: Examples of placebos in UI design? It happens to be my question, but I'm trying not to be biased. I thought it was a good community-wiki question, though. Are we no longer supposed to use the community-wiki feature? On SO, the community-wiki questions always seemed like some of the more interesting questions on ...

If you've set a bounty for it then you've more-or-less tied yourself into having to accept an answer. Even if you don't then the bounty will be automatically assigned to the top answer (or the highest answer added since the bounty was announced). Bounties can also be used just to award to answers to your question without even having opened a bounty on the ...

It doesn't really need community wiki. Community wiki usage has been strongly discouraged and when it is used, it's for something truly colaborative like Android's How do I root my Device? post. If you think it's not up to you to pick the "correct" answer, simply don't accept an answer and allow users to vote. Community Wiki doesn't let others accept posts ...

You should definitely do this. Don't worry about the problem areas. We avoid subjective answers by downvoting, post noticing, and ultimately deleting them if they don't answer your question. Answers should generally be objective anyway, so anything that isn't risks being removed. You don't have to focus on Win 8 CP since most of what is in it will be in the ...

UX is a site for user experience researchers and designers, not for users. I think if you're looking for help improving your workspace, you should look for a Stack that deals with that topic specifically. DIY Stack Exchange may be able to help. Programmers.SE has several questions about workspaces (for programmers) as well, and that site by its very nature ...
