Here's a recap: "Do whatever I suggest! My idea is the best!" Author: Everyone.
Seriously, though, I think there are three principal site changes brought up here that people might find beneficial:
1. Changes to how users can edit and update pages (most of that is discussed over the last 2 or 3 pages).
2. A bulk upload feature that could somehow be only available for mountains, routes, etc.
3. Possibly separating the new route pages into categories for technical and nontechnical.
The selection process for featured pages has also been discussed, but I don't think people will ever come to a happy agreement regarding geographical variety and balance of page types, so in my opinion that's probably better left to the elves doing the featured pages, though recommending pages in forum threads is always welcome.
If we were to look at changing the editing options, I think we would need to solicit a lot of member feedback and give ample time for it before making a major change like that.
Something suggested in another thread: a draft-saving feature, though I would still rather do things off-site so I always have a backup.
