Good to see you in charge Bob.

I'd go further than your criteria for "under construction" pages. There should be no need to give the author a couple of days. Under construction entails the addition and positioning of images only. All other work can and should be done off line. Three hours maximum is all I would allow.

The Mountain Page for Mount Daly has at least two errors that I know of.


First, the elevation gain from the Capitol Creek Trailhead is more than 3200 feet. The trailhead is at approximately 9500 feet and the summit is at 13,300. Also there is approximately 500 feet of elevation loss (down to 9000 feet) on the Capitol Creek Trail which has to be taken into account. Actual elevation gain would be more like 4300 feet.

Second, on the Capitol Creek Approach it says to hike to Snowmass Lake - this is an obvious typo, as it should be Capitol Lake.

I sent two PMs to the page owner back in 2009 regarding the corrections and they have obviously have been ignored. I suppose I could just add these comments in the Additions and Corrections section, but I haven't.

I realize these are probably small issues in what you are trying to accomplish, I just wish a page owner would at least make the corrections, or at least respond to the PM.

Mark, I went in and made the changes. Thanks for letting me know.

Thanks Bob...and could you attach it to the Elk Mountains page as well.

I added my comments on the "Compromise on incomplete pages?" thread you started. Hopefully everyone will use that page for commenting on "nuking" pages and will leave this thread for its originally intended purpose...improving SP content!

Ok Bob...PC page in my opinion isnt so great (not saying: is soooooooooooo bad) so till the guy will do something at it, (that for sure will never happenend :() should be changed in a custom object. We already had many stupid, childish discussions about it without any result loooooooooooooooool. I just want that page to look great not a long boring copy from a book. Now he place there many pics of mine and other many that are not mine and he wrote under that are submitted by me but are not all :shock: . Then he told me that he dont know how to change...etc, etc... Hope he will not hate me too bad :roll: .

So look at it and if you have same opinion...

I would be more than happy to adopt those four Bieszczady pages, and either transfer them to my flatmate Ania if she signs up, or work together with her to make them better.
