You want to add to the codex, great!
A couple guidelines to keep the codex in order.
There are enough top level components, types and contexts to manage all content. Please choose one of the existing options when creating new codex pages. This will keep the codex clean without unnecessary tagging.
Do not nest pages. The majority of users will google and find the exact page. When nested, if something is move or renamed it will break links.
The tips, tricks and hacks are not that important. They could cause future problems with sites if code changes do not work. By posting these on bp.org codex it makes them seem official and could confuse a new user. I would refrain from doing these types of posts and stick to documenting the core. In the future we should write the tips on our own blogs/sites/bp forum and then post a link on the main tips/tricks page. If someone has written a how to about a component then place a link at the bottom of the components page like it is done on the WordPress repo (scroll to bottom ) under an External Resources heading with date.
