What is Google Tip Jar?
After months of hearing about economic difficulties & recession, Google thought that how could it help. They realized there were a lot of tips that could help people save money scattered across the web. Why not use Google Moderator to collect and rank them all according to community feedback? And so Tip Jar was born: a list of money-saving tips for users to vote on, and even add to.

“If you are a parent and have the old electricity bills of a year, tell your children to save electricity and the money they save, 50% goes to you and the rest is divided among your children. (Compare the new electricity bills with the old ones)”

I havent heard about TipJar yet Thanks for Information.
I heard about TipJar from labnol today,, Amit posted some tips for money saving by Google TipJar
I think 2 posts (written by me), and 1 post (not exactly copy paste, but yes, it was refered from a news post) were not approved. I do not blame DW, as I know that my english has no sense 😛
Your English is much better (than me atleast)
About your “news post” I already emailed you few suggestions to improve it.
No editor is allowed to take posts personally while reviewing them.
As an example, I hate Windows and love Mac (and Linux too) but I just approved Vaibhav’s linux-post even though I personally do not agree with views expressed in it, to considerable extent.
Just for info, Vaibhav was also asked to make some changes to post but those changes didn’t involve changing his viewpoint. 🙂
Submit your tip!
And noone commented on my tip :-s
I thought I would recieve a lot of comments on that… 😛
Also post your tip here….
I said na.. I don’t blame the editorial team. I know how badly I prepare posts. And Your english is far better than me 😛
