2.The number of page views (and thus ad views) for SP is down more than half from what it was in 2015 and, again, it has been a steady decline over the last 3 years.

Granted, NWhikers doesn't host photos (as far as I know) but sources them elsewhere like Flickr. Cascadeclimbers does host its own photos, though likely nowhere near as many as summitpost does.

If they are attached someplace else, but serve no perceived purpose to the page in question, let the page owner unattach them so that perhaps some one else may delete them.

What about a limit to how may pictures someone can attach to an album or trip report etc.?

I think it's just the way things are heading these days and am not sure if there is anything that can be done about engaging new contributors here.
