The development team (which includes me) and the QA team were having a conversation about the formatting of tips for user creation on the enrollment page of our application.
Some members of the team believe that the formatting of all of these tips should be consistent for every field. So for example, they all should have a sentence and bullet points with criteria of that field.
Other members of the team disagreed. They say that our password tips should give instructions of what is acceptable for the password in bullet format with with a sentence potentially included, while the other fields, such as username, just contain a sentence or two.
Should all of these hints follow the same formatting or is it acceptable for different field types to have different tool tip designs and formats?
