Who administers to this page ?????

--edited for clarity--

Iowa, Indian Bluffs
mountainproject.com/v/indian-b...

I've been trying to ask if an admin can put an 'Add Area' button on the page. As it is, 20 routes are clustered on the landing page for IB. Climbing routes at IB are not clustered together. In fact, they are spread out on a few trails. Having the ability to organize IB's route information by AREA would be an improvement giving locals the ability to refine directions to various places.

Recently I've asked this in comments on the IB page. I've also sent a message to the named admin on 11/9/13, but no answer.

I appreciate the volunteer work our admins do for MP, and understand things get busy so maybe I should be more patient. Still, I'm inspired to add some pictures, maps and improved descriptions, and I think the first step is fixing the controls for the page so they match other Mountain Project Destinations.

Can someone tell me an alternative admin contact for adding an area to an existing place, like Iowa's Indian Bluffs?

Thanks,
Bill

I'd talk to:

mountainproject.com/u/kristine...

I think she's a general admin, and can probably give you rights to organize.

This problem haunted my dreams for 6 years after f...
She is not the person to ask. She is an access fund person who has admin priveledges over the whole site for GPS and such but has no really hands on with any of the other nuts and bolts.

Monomaniac can help you. I think he is another at-large admin. I don't think there is an Iowa Admin. Bill, I sent you a PM.

Sorry for my late reply...

James, I tried KH and then saw she's admin on many pages and maybe too busy to respond. Thanks.

Chris, Got your PM and sent the MP Landlord a message volunteering myself to help admin Iowa.




Iowa locals,

My interest in volunteering to help admin the Iowa destinations is to improve organization of existing content. IB is one area I know of that only has a parent destination page, and it needs child pages (areas). I think there's some others like this under MP Iowa destinations, and I would like to make that improvement.

I don't plan on changing anyone's contributions in any way. If I discover information that is incorrect I will always contact the author and ask for their help in confirming facts and seeking permission before editing.
