Where should tips go? Poll is created on Nov 30, 2018


Where should we put tips?  



As listeners know, we love tips as much as we love questions (and answers!). After all, a tip is just an answer to a question that we haven't yet asked.

@steven posted a great tip today but wasn't sure where it belonged, and I agree.

Part of me thinks they simply belong in the Q&A section, so a Mac tip would be in the "Mac Questions" (or perhaps renamed "Mac Questions and Tips") section, etc. But we could just as easily create a "Tips" section for these.

We'll cogitate on this, but I'm curious what your thoughts are?

I am torn between all 3.

For possible MacObserver or MGG material, I would think one new all-in-one "Tips" forum.

For users looking for Tips, a per forum Tip so that someone looking for Mac tips, will not need to wade through iPhone, networking, NAS, etc... tips.  But that starts to become a jungle of forums, that of course will not be completely followed anyway  😀

Which would then lead towards just having tips in the Topic specific forum, but they will get lost there.

OK, I'm going to vote for a "Tips" Forum and let uses swim in there.  😀

I only ever saw it as two tip areas, one for iOS and the other for the Mac. Maybe Dave has other ideas for a rollout.


I think rename the sections as “questions & tips”. Frequently the correct answer to a question ends up as being a “tip”.

Sounds reasonable to me.
