As you may know, I have a grips guide that has been popular for years now. I am preparing to replace it with newer content, especially videos. The grips guide has history for me. It was the first article on my website, but it goes back further than that. The original (much shorter) version was published here on BC, and that was what started me making instructional badminton content. That little article is why the Badminton Bible exists. Now that I'm planning to retire the grips guide, I want to involve the BC community in the process. While I will make all the decisions, I would still appreciate any thoughts you have on this. Why do this? I need to update the content because I have changed some of the things I teach. Of course, I could just update the article, but I don't want to do that. We are now making a different style of content (better, I think!), and I don't want to keep the old articles around forever. To make a high quality resource, it's not enough to add new things. You also have to remove cruft. What I'm planning I'm about to start filming several videos on learning individual grips (e.g. thumb grip). These will replace the core content of the grips guide, and I will redirect those article pages to the appropriate new videos. I'm planning to make these videos free. Some of the other grip-related videos will probably not be free (e.g. changing grip). As always, every video will be accompanied by free text content. I am also planning to avoid making any new images, and instead rely on video. I feel video is more effective, and it's less hassle than managing a whole bunch of images. If you look at the grips guide, that leaves three main sections: Adjusting your grip -- covers grip length, late forehand and backhand, and smash Which grip? -- a laundry list of "which grip for shot X" pages Background info -- odds and ends, like an explanation of how the BE grips teaching changed I must decide what to do with these. Currently this is my plan: Adjusting your grip: this is actually useful content, so I'm keeping it. I will move these pages from the article and put them into the new content structure. Eventually they will get "upgraded" with videos. Which grip: I feel this section is thin. I would normally just teach this when I am teaching a shot. I am tempted to remove all these pages, redirecting each page to the most relevant topic (e.g. "which grip for smash defence" redirects to "smash defence basics"). Background info: honestly, does anybody read this? Does anyone care? The only practical page is the one about grip (handle) size, so I might keep that. The rest I intend to remove. How you can help You can help by letting me know your views on this. Am I planning to remove content that you've found useful? Or do you agree it's dead weight? Any other thoughts welcome too. It's important to clean up old content, but equally one must be careful when making drastic changes to a popular resource. That's why I'm doing this openly. Please let me know what you think. Remember that it's useful to leave feedback even if you have nothing special to add. "Sounds fine to me" is just as valid as "No, don't take those pages away!"
