He put me on as an owner and I will be undated it as soon as I get something together.
Anything else need to be done?

When you have reworked the page, post about it in the forum for Reworked Pages-- Colorado.

There are lots of out of date and abandoned pages in the Wasatch. Here are some examples:

http://www.summitpost.org/grandview-peak/152307

http://www.summitpost.org/avenue-twin-peaks/389599

http://www.summitpost.org/willard-peak/153139

Some members are long gone.

MrWasatch has said that he no longer has time to maintain the pages.

rmjwinters doesn't seem to be very active anymore either.

Sadly, it seems that many pages in the Wasatch have long been abandoned.

Maybe some locals wouldn't mind fixing them up?

This page has not been updated in 12 years, and the author hasn't logged on in 5. I've pm'd him with no response. It's not a totally bad page but could use an upgrade and update with current info. I have the range page, and this is the leading peak of the range, so it bothers me to see it so neglected. I've been hiking this range since I was 10, and was on this particular peak last month. May I have it?

I've given you ownership of La Arista del Sol and Jacques-Cartier. As for the Glaciar Jampapa route: only pages for which the owner hasn't been active for at least a year are considered up for adoption. Just logging in is enough to be considered active, and in this case he did so on September 6, 2017. Therefore you need him to respond to your request in order to cooperate on the page or to adopt it. Or you can check next September to see if the owner has become inactive, and if so, ask here again to adopt the page.

Ok I understand.

Just wondering something since I don't have too much experience writing on Summitpost. This website helps me a lot in planning my trips and I really like to contribute back. Is it something encouraged to adopt inactive people's pages if I can enhance it more than a simple correction/addition, or is it more of a last resort move when a page gets so outdated that it give wrong indications? I'd like to contribute as much as I can without being aggressive on other people's work.

Excellent question. There is no fixed rule about this, but the two extremes are that adopting is the best idea if you do a major overhaul or when the old owner doesn't want to have his name at the top of the page anymore, and ask for admin (or edit) rights for the page if you do only minor stuff. There is a large grey area in between. Personally, when, after the changes, most of the page is still more or less the same, I don't really want to be the page owner.

By the way, the elves can edit any page anyway, regardless of page ownership or rights. I hardly ever do that though. If I happen to see something I would really like to change, I prefer to send a pm to the page owner instead, or to post a correction/addition to the page.

This page:

http://www.summitpost.org/bisti-de-na-zin-wilderness-nm/548299

is for all practical purposes empty. Over the last 2 weeks, I have tried to contact the owner twice but there has been no reply. I know it has been less than a year since the owner was last active but what good is the page as is? If you go to the suggested starting point, where would you go after that? The area has no signs or trails. The current owner says nothing about any specific things you can expect to see. You will not find any maps of the features of this area anywhere.

I have pictures and GPS coordinates for more than 50 unique features in this area. If I share the ownership of the page, I can provide all that detailed info.
