That happens when an image is deleted by the user when it was displayed on someone else's page. Too bad-- it's not the best route page, but it's not bad, and now it looks pretty ugly. If the owner is inactive, I'll at least remove the image tags.

Edit: The pictures were not on SP but rather linked from another site, so I guess those pictures were deleted elsewhere or the page addresses changed.


I'm heading there next weekend. If all goes as planned I could have a route page to add that will pretty much covers this, and more - along with hopefully some decent pics. The plan is to head up the Profile Trail and hit all three peaks on Grandfather Mountain from the Grandfather Trail.

This page has no information! Well unless you count the "." in the page. :wink:

I like the title as "the trail" without precising to which mountain :)

These closely related pages have not evolved.
I added the same and only attached pic to all four pages as a hint, a while ago. But there seems to be no interest on the owners part (anymore).
I've edited quite a few of the same author's pages allready, and The Elves have also worked on some. It's getting boring...
So what do you do in a case like this?


You need to do more than just hint. This guy's got 4 Areas & Ranges, 64 Mountains & Rocks, 174 Routes, and a few other pages. He's obviously very busy. He probably doesn't even have time to check on his pages with any degree of regularity, let alone improve or fix any of them. Maybe there should be some sort of limit on the amount of content a member is allowed to take on.

These minor route pages should be evaluated in conjunction with their associated mountain page by the same author, which seems decent.

I wonder--Have you (politely) contacted bor and proposed, for example, that he give you co-editing rights on the routes? :)

Dow and Gangolf would not be a fan of the idea. :lol: (this is not meant to be an attack on your guys work). My point is that limiting the amount of content would create another problem, especially for the best sp contributers. :wink: With this case I wonder if the owner of the pages even knows that there is a demand in improving the pages mentioned. 8)

My point exactly. If someone is responsible for hundreds of pages they don't know when the pages need work.

That's what PM'ing and Commenting is for. :wink: When I see a page that deserves far better I usually contact the author and let them know that there should be more added. If what you suggested was implemented, we would see far less posted from the best posters of sp. But I certainly understand that sometimes people with too many pages don't update them. If the page owners with 300 or so pages never touches his pages, and someone here on sp is willing to improve them, an elf should hold the right to at least make them an admin. 8)

Exactly why I think that is a problem with sp with how page admins can steal pages. :?

Bor has contributed a lot of good content and was active as recently as three days ago, so there will be no "forced adoptions" of his pages anytime soon. If you think his pages could use some improvements, please email/PM him to talk about it.
