15. Suggestions & Ideas
The Drupal platform is very very big!! It is not just a HTML5 community or a CSS3 community. In the future with thousands of different IT members and hundreds of posts per day, without a great categorization at the beginning from the first posts, it will lead to a disaster in post discoverability and healthy discussions -- chaos for the user experience!
The Linux community has 13 categories. We should think for thousands of different Drupal IT people and not just for personal use with 2-3 categories. Also and for personal use isn't so good having thousands of posts into 2-3 categories -- the group has a "All posts" category.
The above categorization is great for existing Drupalers, for new Drupalers and for non-Drupalers. The categories aren't too many, but the minimum for such a very very big platform. I'm waiting your thoughts about this important community issue. You are posting amazing things, lets make available to the members the categorization for the new posts.
