Adopted/Adopting a Page?

Postby Bob Sihler » Wed Sep 15, 2010 4:53 pm

If you have adopted a page, reworked it, and would like low votes and negative comments from before your ownership removed, please make such requests here.

Do you want to adopt a poor or abandoned page?

First, email the owner. If you get no response within two weeks, please PM me or use this thread to contact the staff.

If the owner has been active recently, a staff member may make one last attempt to try contacting the owner before transferring the page.

If the owner declines the adoption/sharing request but refuses to improve the page, we'll consider the the transfer if we agree that the page needs significant work. A staff member may approach the member first, though.

In the event that the owner has been inactive on the site for more than a full calendar year, you can skip the email; I will deal with the fallout if the owner suddenly returns.

Please try to distinguish between older pages that were never updated after SPv2 went online but are still good sources of information and pages that have incorrect or inadequate/missing information. SP has many such older pages that don't look so spiffy because they have just the old in-line thumbs display but still have good content.

And thank you to those of you who take on the task of "rescuing" weak pages.

It seems to me that cleaning up SP was on top of his agenda on his elfish campaign. :wink:

Seriously, while heroic it's certainly worthwhile for the benefit of all members and the site in general. I will support that effort as best as I can.

For whatever reasons, I often find myself going to the older pages to get information. I recall one page that had low votes, probably because it was so terse; yet it told me that the route could be done, when it was best done, where to start, and the regs that applied. I didn't need much else.

That obvious, huh? When discussing coming on board, I mentioned bad submissions as a prime area of interest.

Truth is, clutter on What's New and bad pages have been driving me up the wall for about four years now. I know I'll never cure the problem, but I hope to make some kind of dent in it.

Great idea Bob.

I have a low vote or 2 on this page I adopted. Since your deleting votes, I voted 10 on it before I adopted it. Voting 10 on my own page looks kinda tacky, naw what I mean.

Done. They were outlier votes and didn't affect the score, but it's still nice to see them gone. Really nice job on that page, by the way.

Nobody's interested? :?:

The owner has put it plainly:
Not abandoned, but I'll confess to having neglected this. Too busy on subsequent trips to the Alps and Pyrenees. I note nicolai79 also has a page set up. If he has the time and energy to take this forward I'd be content to pass it on to him. Or to anyone else. I'm not going to get all proprietorial or dog-in-the-mangerish.

Bob,

As you requested i wrote to the owner but as i expected he never gave me an answer. That was 2 weeks ago.
The mountain pages are:

http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/rock ... incon.html
http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/rock ... citos.html

I'm pretty sure he gave up using SP, too bad..

They're yours now. You can remove the original owner from the page privileges if you wish. Thank you.

Thank you Bob.

I just spent some time updating lat, long, altitude, camping info (one was missing) and contact for cheap transport. Looks better!

Cheers!

Hello,

I would like to adopt this page for the following reasons:
- the page lacks important information and has a low score (about 70%)
- the owner has not log in since 2007

Here are some of my recent pages:
http://www.summitpost.org/route/664922/ ... gral-.html
http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/rock ... rzii-.html
http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/rock ... udele.html

Thanks,
Mibu
