Have you ever been talking to someone, on a call, in a meeting, or just sitting by yourself and thought, “I need to write that down so I don’t forget”? Sometimes you already have a note open to take those notes. However, sometimes you may just need to quickly take that note in the context of the situation and deal with filing it later.
Thanks for the handy tip! Forum posts are a lot more helpful for people when they contain the needed info instead of just a teaser — or at least the gist if it’s a long article. It’s especially undesirable for forum users to open a post labeled as a quick tip, only to be redirected to another site.
