Thread: Tip of the Day

  1. #1

    Default Tip of the Day

    Hey everyone!

    As a twist on the suggestion by @GreatCat , I was thinking that we should have an auto-rotating tip of the day (TI Help/Rules/FAQ related quotes).
    The tips will help newcomers learn the rules and will be a solid refresher for our more seasoned members.
    We could also make tips of the day forum-specific, especially in Area 51 where the rule requirements are heavier.

    That's a very good suggestion and could have a big positive impact on the user experience. However, only if it will be implemented well. For example, it would be ideal if a user will not see a tip more than once within a particular period (e.g. 1 month). So users should be able to easily mark tips as read. Also a tip should actually be a tip and not just a copy of a rule. E.g. instead of „Ratio proofs must be properly edited.“ it should be something like „Make sure that your ratio proofs are properly edited. This is mandatory and will increase the security of both your and your inviters tracker accounts.“ If these two aspects are not considered I think users will more likely be annoyed by the tips and thus ignore them.

    Also the the forum-specific tips is a great idea. Even thread-specific tips could be useful. E.g. for the thread Rate the Song Above there could be a tip „You can embed videos by clicking on the video button and then paste the video link in the input field “. Also it would be beneficial if the specifity of a tip would be considered in the selection of the shown tip. For example, there could be three tip-categories:

    1. General (forum usage) tips
    2. Sub forum specific tips
    3. Thread specific tips

    Now if a user views a particular thread at first only thread-specific tips will be shown (if there are any). If the user has viewed all these tips (marked as read), only sub-forum specific tips will be shown. And so forth...

    I like this idea too. There is currently a way of doing a "Tip of the Day" sort of thing, but it is not possible to make certain tips subforum or thread specific. Tips would be selected from a list of tips and displayed globally throughout the forums. Tips can be given probability weights so that some would be more likely to show over others. They can be dismissable and can be viewed as always on, once in a browser session, once a day, once every X minutes or once every X page views.

    What do you guys think? Here's an example of what it would look like:

    Yeah, that sounds and looks good @Poopderp . Although the forum/thread specific tips would be nice, it will be still very useful imo. Unfortunately it seems that there is no „mark as read“ feature. But I guess most users will not have the tips set to „always on“. And if there are enough tips they (hopefully) will not be repeated too often..
