This post is a call to the pickleball community as a whole, with a special plea, requesting the advice and expertise of pickleball veterans who know the ins and outs of this industry… the who’s, what’s, when’s, why’s, and how’s!
The focus of this post is to crystalize #2 from above… Organization. Most hyper-organized communities thoroughly think through a tagging hierarchy that can be used to index and manage content.
One of the great things about tags is that you can follow a tag and get notifications whenever a new post is added and uses the tags you are following… SOOOO cool!
Open-Source This Project
Let’s work together on a tagging taxonomy that makes the most sense for the pickleball world!
Check out the existing community tags, which are kind of a mess right now
If you’d like to be a collaborator and help curate/manage this open-source list of community tags please shoot me a message by CLICKING THIS LINK (which will bring up a new message) then just hit the “Message” button and I’ll be notified!
After we establish the core tagging taxonomy, as community members see a need to add new tags, they can chime in on this discussion for review/discussion with community leaders who have access to update tags.
Pickleballist Community Forums Tag Taxonomy
Note: It’s best if you view the list and help collaborate, on a desktop (mobile is not ideal for this project)
