Above is a link to my first attempt at a user tip. I'm anxious to get any feedback.

I notice that most user tips are entirely contained within the message, while mine just includes a basic intro and then a link to the relevant page on my web site. I did this so I didn't have to figure out how to re-do the HTML in "forumese" (or whatever you call the special markup here), as well as to allow for future edits (since, as I understand it, a user tip will not be editable once accepted). I hope that this is not a problem!

    They can be edited, but not directly.

    If you have a small correction, just post a request like this: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2418101

    Otherwise, post a new version, and in the "ready for consideration" post, include a link to the existing one (and I always detail what changed).

    Edit: But as long as the link is stable, I don't see a problem doing it the way you did.

    And it will be GREAT to have a link we can point the zillion folks who ask this over and over and over . . . .

    Thanks, that helps me understand this process a bit better.
