What’s the difference between a post and a discussion?

A post is like an article in an online magazine. Some are very short and some are longer, but they are generally intended to transmit a concept, provide practical tips, or explain a topic. Authors also need to upload a teaser image when creating a post. The Community staff reviews all posts before they are published and thus visible to the public.

A discussion is generally shorter than a post. The intention is to either get answers and feedback from other members or share news or bits of interesting information. Discussions are generally more informal than posts. No imagery is necessary, but you can certainly include them if you would like! Discussions are not subject to approval by the Community staff before being published.

Posts, discussions, and comments must adhere to the Community’s Rules of Engagement.

What’s the difference between “Learn the basics about design and user experience” and “Skill up on design and user experience”?

  • Learn the basics about design and user experience – this area is intended for people new to design and user experience who want to learn the fundamentals. In this area, posts should contain high-level, introductory information and be relatively short.
  • Skill up on design and user experience – this area is meant to help design practitioners and experts to expand their knowledge. Here posts ideally offer practical design advice or share design best practices and can be a bit longer.
