The bottom-most! I left uppermost...

I had no clue.

This is kinda like cleaning the cobwebs out of your garage.

Oh, no.. there's one of those eight-legged "creepy crawlies" with an attitude ! !

Perhaps if I gingerly sweep it outside with a broom, the animal rights proponents will sleep more
soundly tonight.

Thanks for the heads up, or.. is it "bottoms up ??"

What is the community norm for deleting history for adopted pages?

I adopted the Gallatin Range from Joseph Bulloch, who adopted it from Josh. I've saved the last of each of their versions. If I were to leave SP/delete my page/die/turn into a drunken snowmobiler, would leaving those older versions serve a purpose?

That page is totally yours now; the work you put in is tremendous. I don't see any need for keeping previous owners' histories since they willingly gave up the page.

I might only save another's history if I adopted an inactive member's page, just in case he came back and there was a controversy.

Matt, Bob, Gangolf, Dave K...whomever...

I know it has been mentioned in one or another of these forums on cleaning/saving space, but I can't find it at the moment, so thought I'd mention it again:

In Gear Reviews there is a "View History" button, but no way to follow through with any deletion. Can this be changed? Can't hurt....

Thanks,

Bump...thought I'd bump this after another year.

If you haven't cleaned out the excess versions of your page submittals...and old photos that probably didn't need to be posted, this is a friendly reminder to clean up some SP disc space.

I suppose Matt could tell us whether or not this clearing out helps out the site...but I was always under the impression it was beneficial. If you haven't looked at how many versions of your submittals you made when you posted your last TR/Route Page, etc., you might just be surprised.

Happy New Year - May all your Summit dreams come true in 2011!

It does. Images are probably the best things to target. Removing any images that aren't useful or used in pages of the site would definitely help with bandwidth and storage costs.

Matt, few ideas :
- You should implement a temporary question after the login of every member, asking "are you willing to get rid of older versions of all your pages ?"
- A button "clear all older versions" should be added to pages when viewed by their owners
- Some components nowadays are able to compare two JPEGs. We could eliminate duplicates => merging votes, comments, etc, of both pictures, and replacing all occurences of the deleted one in pages by the remaining one. The operation would last some time for sure !
- Do not allow uploading a picture that already was uploaded, if the above is possible.
I do not have too many duplicates but I discovered a couple lately which I did by mistake. Also, it could prevent possible copyright issues between 2 members.
