- Use tooltips to reduce mystery 1 answer
Tooltips appear on vote, flag, edit, share, favorite, and badges buttons, and probably many other places I'm not thinking of. Fancy JS/DHTML tooltips appear on tags and usercards.
However, there are no tooltips over the "review", "chat", "meta", "about", and "faq" buttons in the toolbar, or on the large "Questions", "Tags", "Users", "Badges", "Unanswered", and "Ask Question" buttons in the content header. Since these are probably the most prominent UI interaction elements on the entire site, it kind of surprises me that there are no tooltips on them.
Should SE add tooltips to these buttons could be helpful for new users to explain the purpose of these areas and to guide them to the right location what they want to do?
