About Tips

Thanks for adding the tip about citations.

It would be a good idea if we separate tips from the "Definition" field. We may use Tip Template {{Tip|Write here your tip}} in the "Examples" field What do you think?

Cheers. Gladys

I realize now that the "present" you used is a template and now I know how to use it :-).

I was thinking the same thing as I was trying to figure out the tip template, I should use it to include the tips that I've been including in the stat term pages. I usually have more than one tip. I'm thinking that each would be a separate entry. I'll try it out.

OK, I tried it out on Pie Chart. I wasn't able to get it to line up right, but I'm wondering if having three in a row makes the page "too cluttered". One heading with multiple bullets afterwards might be better. I found a Template:Tips that was created, but it doesn't appear to be in active use (it shows up on a user's sandbox). Thoughts?

I am presuming, Template:Tips is only a failed attempt by User:Hoatson to try something which has no relationship with developing a template.

Seems there is no "movement in the bullpen" :-) for this Template page since June 2008.

The only page which links Template:Tips is User:JosephineDame/My Sandbox. No movement since August 2008. It also seems to be a practice of pedagogical templates.

I think we can use Template:Tips for creating a tips template usefull for various tips in one box.

I suggest you replicate Template:Tip. Just switch to "Tips" in the Title.

Cheers. Gladys

Thanks for encouraging me to make the change. I did so (actually awhile back), but then thought I'd make some changes to make it fit better with how I would use it. Well, when I went back to the places where I had multiple tips, I decided to break them up into single tips.

So the new template is there, but I've not used it yet.

Just thought you'd be interested to know.
