  • News in brief: Signpost stories in regular reports—In the media, News and notes, Technology report, others—often or usually have a section "in brief" where small but nevertheless notable news is touched upon. The formatting of this section escapes a bit from that of the other sections, but will be handled for you when you start a story out of the newsroom.
  • Images in brief: Images can appear in news in brief: to use them here use the {{Signpost brief filler image|image=|caption=|size=}} template. An example appears at right.
  • Anchors: Oftentimes with news in brief you will want to go and link back to a brief item sometime in the future, perhaps when the issue gets significant coverage again and the previous coverage is still notable and useful. To do so go back and drop into that story an {{anchor|Linkname}} template, and then link to it with [[Foo/Bar#Linkname]]. As, for instance, here.
  • Citing previous Signpost coverage: When citing another article in the issue being written, use the formulation "(see Signpost coverage"). When referring to articles in previous editions (more common), the format "(see previous Signpost coverage)" is preferred.
  • Asserting authorship: In the case of Signpost pages with multiple authors you can (but aren't required to) make use of a small byline callout (<small>[[User:Resident Mario|R]]</small>, for instance) placed at the end of the piece to demonstrate writer's ownership of a particular section. R
