SummitPost Suggestions

Submit any ideas you may have for improving SP. People will be allowed to vote on them. Ideas with the most votes will be given highest priority.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Add a small "wiki" section at the bottom of all pages

    1. The current "Additions and Corrections" section becomes an open section that anyone can edit at the bottom of the page rather than being a link on the side.

    2. No other section of the page is open to anyone an owner doesn't want it to be open to.

    3. The page owner is under no obligation to incorporate the information into other sections.

    4. Anyone, owner included, can add, edit, and delete in that section.

    • Make it so that pages cannot be deleted if other members have added content or attachments to the page.

      Users would still own their content and contribution, and be able to delete all their text and photos from a page, but would not be able to delete the page itself if others have attached routes, photos, other objects, or signed the climbers log. Members have occasionally done this willingly (the Liberty Ridge page was left rather than orphan tons of photos and clear the summit log, and now someone is revamping it from scratch). This would require a page to be retained without an owner, or automatically reassigned to the orphanage, if a member is deleted.

      It isn't right…

      • Changing the adoption process.

        This idea could be either of the following and needs to be thought out more:
        1) Allow users to apply to get update permissions.
        2) Pages come up for adoption if not up to date (as voted on by the community -- this would require adding a way to vote whether or not a page is sufficiently up to date).

        NOTE: While this idea could be termed "wiki" it does NOT imply open editing for all pages.
