While you may not give them much thought, tags are an important part of any community's architecture. Tags help organize content into buckets and ensure the most relevant information is discoverable by those who are searching for it.
As you can imagine, in a community like ours, where hundreds of posts are being created every day, the tag creation process, if unchecked, can become unwieldy and counterproductive.
In fact, the tags in our little corner of the internet had ballooned to 20,000 over time, including those with spelling errors, those not related to the question and those that could easily be merged. A group of our Community Champions decided to take matters into their own hands, forming a Tag Cleanup Crew, and declaring war on erroneous tags. The results? We went from 20,000 to 5,200, with a renewed commitment to keeping them under control moving forward.
