Since it's used to seek agreement, it generally softens your statements or requests.
(compare えてね [seeking agreement, softer] and えてよ [trying to persuade, more firm])
In male speech, which is casual, ね is often changed to な.
This makes your speech more rough and masculine, so be careful when using it.

The sentence construction needs a bit of modification.

い-adjective + ね
な-adjective + だね
Noun + だね
Verb + ね

Maybe change the construction wording to show that です can also be used instead of だ.

there is another usage of ね:

ね is sometimes used in a non-sentence-final position to draw the hearer's attention to something or to confirm that the hearer has understood what has been said up to that point. ね is typically used in this manner in telephone conversations.

  • (3)
  • もしもし、ね、んでからるからね、になるよ。
  • Literally: Hello, tonight, OK? I go home after drinking in Ginza, you understand?, so I'll be home around 11:30.

    So I think the "drawing attention" usage should be considered a separate usage from the "sentence ending particle ね"

The current entry does not specify sentence ending, but would you say that the overall meaning is the same (just different location)? I'd prefer to expand out the current definition and add some notes about location rather than split it out into two entries.
