    "A searchable repository of examples..."

    A searchable repository of examples, such as The DALL·E 2 Prompt Book [37], could help users overcome the “design”, “selection”, and “use” barriers that often led to the aforementioned dead ends. In particular, these examples should include specifc prompts that work, and the contexts in which they work, so users can set their own expectations around when to try what kind of instruction, or what kind of sample dialog (or other input-output pair) to include, how much to repeat themselves, how much emotion to give, etc. Examples would also help users develop reasonable expectations about whether a specific type of prompt design should work in a given context—and if not, whether rephrasing or repositioning that prompt would help.
