Yes, it should be removed because it doesn't add anything. On-topic questions here are about UX anyway, so ux-design is unneeded.

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 ...

"User interface" is too vague to be of use. Tags exist to categorize content so that it's easier to find answers to questions you need help with or so you can subscribe to them if you're an expert. No one is an expert at "user interfaces". No one is going to look at answers to questions about "user interfaces" and find a common thread that will help them. ...

This tag has been removed and made intrinsic (same as a blacklist, but won't block inbound migrations) - it's now in the same class as user-interface, which should give you a clue as to why it wasn't already blacklisted. 10 questions had no other tags - please retag them appropriately.

Given that this whole site is about user experience, the user-experience tag is redundant. It's a needless wart. Let's prevent its use.

Seems that https://ux.stackexchange.com/content/balsamiq/mockups-web.swf is 404. Friends at StackExchange, let us know if you need any assitance fixing this. Maybe it's time to update the integration? We've come a long way since the version you have today. Email me at peldi@balsamiq.com if you'd like to chat!

The only reason to keep it that I can see is to differentiate these questions from ones dealing with ux research... But we don't really get a whole lot of those. I say nuke it.

This isn't something specific to ux.stackexchange; Gravatar is used across all the StackExchange sites. Just as OpenID is used for registration, StackExchange use Gravatar for avatars. StackExchange have used Gravatar for most (if not all) of their existence. A blog post was made on this back in June '08: Gravatars, Identicons, and You discussing why the ...

We have a very technical term for this - it is called "a bug". It isn't just you. It should be fixed in a couple of minutes (we're deploying currently).

This has been fixed on dev server. The change will be on live after our next production build(within 24hours).

Agreed. The color of the text is #AAAAAA. On a white background it doesn't pass WCAG AA compliance. Contrast ratio is far too low. See this screenshot taken from snook.ca It'll be much better at #545454 or even darker: I've looked over a bunch of other StackExchange sites and none of the ones I checked have such a feint colour for the search field text.

This should now be resolved and the fix is live across all sites. Sorry for the inconvenience; I broke it when modifying how the Markdown editor worked for Stack Snippets.

The tag should apply to all questions posted on UX.SE. So yes I would agree on blacklisting it.

I have put in a fix for this. I have no idea why I picked the colors I did... it will be in the next production build. (you may need to refresh browser to see the change).

Stack Exchange recently announced that they have now implemented this feature. http://blog.stackoverflow.com/2013/01/announcing-a-new-way-to-change-your-profile-picture/?cb=1

Unfortunately the core functionality of all sites on the SE network is the same and the site-specific changes are just on the CSS level, as well as on all pages and dialogues dealing with site-specific context. The log-in mechanism and user settings are shared by the entire network, and people from a specific site can't change them for their site alone - ...

As a general rule, I hate shutting down questions that have even a tangential UX connection. However, in this one case, I would almost always refer people to something like https://icons8.com/request-icon/free/hot That site is totally focused on icons. If you get votes, they make them pretty quickly. It's not a huge community, but it is really targeted to ...

I have put in a fix for this, it will be on live server after the next production build.

ux-design has been burned and blacklisted. There's some cleanup work to do: untagged.

Whoops! We moved our content directories around, but looks like we forgot to reference the button image (and the balsamic swf reference) to use the new location! Fixed and will be with you in the next build. Sorry about that.

We had some issues reproducing this, but managed to repro it in Chrome as well as some versions of FireFox. A fix has been pushed and will be live in the next production build. Thanks for bringing this up!

Fixed, see this meta post for details.

The colors are not actually the same, but the impression of them with that background makes them look very similar. Maybe a more similar color on counters would be preferable?

This has been fixed on production.

Burninated, blacklisted as an intrinsic tag.

Try something like this: I guess @Jin tried to use the default SE colors when designing UX.SE, all I did was basically grabbed the current logo, grabbed the bg color of the header, then the bg color of the SE bar on top, and used these colors, this way trying to be faithful to the original palette. The cutting is terrible, but we're full of visual ...

All these links in questions/answers have been either fixed or deleted. If you see any uxexchange.com links in comments feel free to throw an Obsolete flag on them (or an Other flag asking for the link to be edited out, if the comment stands without a link). Don't bother actively looking for comments though, they can't easily be searched and they're not ...

On a question like: UX & Usability resources for web? There is an answer containing a link, but the question itself is not very useful. Should we still flag/edit the answer?
