It's that time of year again. The time for earnest and well-meaning new contributors to begin dipping their toes into SP mountains, routes, trip reports, etc., to share with the community their summer adventures. Some of these new contributors are "naturals" and others, well, need some community assitance to shine. This is a good chance for us seasoned old folks to provide some constructive criticism to help new arrivals improve their pages.
Some new contributors need help with very tactical matters: Proper coordinates, elevation, removing the "External Links" section if not in use, etc.
Others need more strategic guidance: You know, along the lines of - just putting up two sentence with no pictures integrated to the page then signing the summit register is not really a "Mountain Page" contribution.
It's important to maintain our community page quality standards so that SP continues to be a source of quality, reliable (and, heck, nice-to-look at) climbing & mountaineering beta - and does not degenerate into a compilation of personal scrap book junk and half-arsed postings.
This isn't a call for contributors to march forth rudely and on fire like some SP Quality Control Gestapo, but rather work to foster tomorrow's contributors, providing them with the guidance - quality guidelines and and tech support - needed to bring value to the community.
And, if being nice and fostering fails: We'll send hgrapid after 'em! (Just bustin' your chops, 'ole boy.)
Hope everyone had a great weekend,
