The "demise" of summitpost is 100% the fault of the goddamned lazy-ass Summitpost Elves.

No longer are the owners concerned with attracting new members and forum traffic.
All the major mountains and ranges are in here.
Instead, SP is trying to generate views of mostly outdated, unmaintained, marginal pages in an effort to assist folks in their efforts to get lost in the mountains.

It is harder for new members to contribute. Having a new member reach the front page of the People page is unlikely, so it will be the same old folk that have prominent pages. Newer members are sorely needed.

I don't know if most pages are outdated, but a lot of them are. This is where the future lies with SP. Now that most of the famous mountains have been added, page adoption is what is needed. This can be done by new and fresh members.
I wonder what the best way to encourage new members to adopt pages might be? Maybe we need to find a way to flag out of date pages as adoptable?

I am not sure how to go about that. I don't want to put them up and then see them diminished.

and that assumes that the pages are not abused by people deliberately out to subterfuge the work of others
