    I just noticed this week that a little "tip" box appears sometimes on the right side of the screen when I'm editing a hub. The tips I've seen so far have been about tracking traffic or gaining more traffic. But the strange thing is... sometimes the tip box isn't there! Has anyone else noticed this?

        I'm wondering if only one will appear a day. When it's gone, it's gone and it won't come back. Which is too bad because the one on tracking traffic looked like a good one. Had I known it would have gone away I would have paid more attention to what it said!

          I've found they do come back, after I've gone in and out of edit mode a few times on that hub ... or maybe also if I'm in edit mode a long time in one. Keep watching and I'm thinking you'll come across it again soon!

      I haven't seen the tip box yet either, but I think I'll edit some hubs so I can.

    The tip box does seem to pop in and out of existence strangely, doesn't it?

    Only used it once.  Clicked on it and it said "You're hopeless, give up".

    Bit rude if you ask me.

    Hmm.  I haven't even seen it.  hmm   Eh..  when I'm doing anything (especially writing) I tend not to look anywhere other than where whatever I'm doing is actually going on.  I sort of feel bad to seem so oblivious.  (I like to think of it as "focused"  big_smile)

      I'm the same way Lisa! (the oblivious part, not so much the focused though) smile It was a freak that I saw it at all... and then I wondered if it had been there ever since they changed the whole format.

    I am reluctant to put my "2 cents" into the tip box at this stage.

    LOL!!!!

    I've only seen a tip about the custom summary - and then that blood red thing about how I should have been a plumber so that I could possibly win $2,500.00 for writing a super duper awesome plumbing tips hub. . .

    I just saw the tip box on the edit screen. And when I went back to read more tips, it was gone. It just seemed to be a random tip.
