Back when we were still on phpbb all content was on forums including a special tips thread. However now that we are on drupal we are able to use something better for this kind of content. I think blogs would fit the bill.
So, from now on please post all the tips you may have as blog entries. For them to be included in a special tips section you just have to write "tips" in a blog categories field of your submission form.
Of course if you just prefer posting a helpful tip in forums that's fine, but every tip submit as blogs in this section is then easily browsable from one page, which is an added benefit, while you still can discuss a specific tip in its comments.
