The question Difference between UI and UX is an extremely important question, but it's an old cast off from Stack Overflow and has been (mostly) answered by Programmers, not Designers. It was migrated here after it was a dead thread.

The accepted answer shows the inherent problem...on a site for user experience design, the "accepted" definition of UI/UX starts with "So it seems like....". Most of the other answers were from programmers and the asker (who accepted a meh answer) is long gone and doesn't even have an account here.

This is an important question and a good version would be a great resource to point people too. Is it worth reasking and closing this question as a dupe? Or should we Community Wiki and fix the answer where it is? Or is it not worth fussing with at all?


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.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of trying to hammer this one into a good post – Ben Brocka May 2 '12 at 14:19
I agree although a re-ask definitely might cause a batch of answers to sift through, hopefully they would all be of better quality. That'd be a great rep booster to be the one re-asking that question on here haha. – GotDibbs May 3 '12 at 15:52
What about reopening this one:…;. Or, inviting the one answer to repost in the new question? – Taj Moore May 18 '12 at 15:23
