Introduction (Updated on September 3rd)

I thought that it would be nice to gather in one article the best 5 five pages in the main categories, every month.
It will give the opportunity to everbody to check the "creme de la creme" of SP production.
People not having time to browse into the depth of our favourite website will have a chance to catch up with has been going on.
If this article happens to be useful to anyone, I will be pleased to do this work every month.

I took the first 5 in the percentage ranking of pages created between June 1st and June 30th.
Votes adding up all the time, it is obvious that the Top 5 I'm giving here, may not be the exact same five tomorrow.
The point of this article is not to award or reward anything, just to highlight some good pieces of work.
If two pages happen to have the same percentage, I put both in the table.

NB : I chose not to put the Routes as they relate directly to a Mountain. But I can add them, if anybody thinks this can be relevant.


Enjoy the reading !

This will be a regularly updated page then right? BTW, the table highlighted in red is awfully difficult to read.
Nice idea.

Thanks for your vote and comments ;o)
I changed the color as asked (though the color "brown" appeared fine on my screen).

The votes add up all the time.
Therefore the order could change every day or every other day.
I will have a look in a week or two, and arrange the order if it has changed.

Anyway, I'm pleased that you find it a good idea.
Any other comments will be as welcome.

Perhaps to keep it simple, you can update it once a month at the end of the month to reflect the "Top Five" in each category as of the end of each month.

Your suggestion is good. I will see how it goes with the time, and will adjust the way I maintain it. Once or twice a month should be fine. And as the page will get older, there will be less and less voters on each article. So less update.
I will see how it goes !

Great idea! Very easy now to check out the best creations of that month.
Am I right that you will make a new article every month? I think that would be great, Cheers Lodewijk

You've put France to hiltrud.liu's pic. Hiltrud (as Rahel) is German. Perhaps you should have put Germany unless you refer to the country where the photo has been taken.

Gracias
