Farewell, Tips


What we learned from our experiment

Last week we started to feature a few tool tips per day. Tips had been part of the mix of Cool Tools from the early days of this site, and both Mark and Kevin loved learning about them. We decided to re-introduce tips with a tool angle in our new design. However, several things did not work this time. We were unable to encourage enough readers to submit new tips, and many readers hated the interruption in the flow of tool recommendations. Few readers seem to like the additions. So as of this week, we have ceased the flow of tips.

We have no regrets in trying them again. It was a worthy experiment. We hope to have other experiments in the near future. Let us know how we can continue to improve the site.
