Should we allow UI/UX questions in our community?

+7

A significant fraction of software developers also needs to make some UI/UX-related decisions. I am wondering if we should such questions in the Software Development community.


Based on feedback for this question, I have updated What type of questions can I ask here?.

Yes

I would allow UI/UX questions with some limitations. Examples:

  • on topic - UI/UX questions related to an interface that also involves some programming (e.g. web interfaces)

  • offtopic - questions about choosing fonts for banners or graffiti, color to be used in some ads etc.

I think it should be on-topic with the following distinction:

On-topic

  • Technical questions regarding to UI, including mark-up language syntax, how to set properties in RAD tools, how to use graphic libraries etc.
  • Algorithm questions for how to draw graphics, including at some extent the math and physics behind it.

Off-topic

  • Aesthetic questions - what looks best, color choices, graphic design and similar mostly subjective questions.
