Time to get the ball rolling I think!

Edited to change 'hints' to 'tips' after some people said they felt it was better.

Anything but the first one, honestly :) I prefer 2 or 3.

I agree with Serpent.

In addition to this I think we should limit ourselves to one rolling ball (the other one is found here). Option 3 got one vote and option 4 got two on the other poll before it was locked.

I voted 4 in the other thread. I haven’t voted in this one, but will do if that vote isn’t counted. 3 was second place for me, but I didn’t like “hints”: it suggests to me that some of you out there know the secret to success but aren’t willing to tell us everything! To me, “tips” would be better.

Yes, vote in this please. I had a time-out error which led to the double posting.

I prefer 2 and 3. I am not a native English speaker but like Jim I too think the word ‘tips’ is much better than ‘hints’ in this context.

Noted. If it wins the vote then I'll change 'hints' to 'tips' before instating it.

Yeah, I was going to say the same about tips!
perhaps change the order too.. i'd say "discussions, tips and resources" :D

(is it possible to edit the poll options without resetting it?)

Why are there only 4 options? There were other entries in the other thread and I don't see any problem with them. Why are they filtered out already? Defeats the purpose of emk's brainstorming thread.
