I have been adding boulder problems/routes to an area I put up on here. There are three main subareas in this area. I think it will make it easier for people to find problems/routes if I subdivide the main area into the three subareas. However I am unable to do so. Do I need an administrator to do it?

Thanks

Great question, Daniel. I've been having a similar issue. Benjamin Chapman

I would normally not redo the original area, but just move the routes to a temporary holding area, add the sub areas to the main, then move the routes to them and delete the temporary area. That way the stats and everything for the original will remain.

Hey, what happened to Mo's post? To repeat what he said, the admin for your area can do this for you. If other people have added photos or comments, you would not be able to move things yourself.

Thanks. I have not heard back from the admin for GA. It's been a few days or so since I tried to contact him. Maybe my message never went through. How do I temporarily move the routes? Frailer

My post was in response to CaptainMo's saying how an admin can do it. I just checked and unfortunately the 'move' edit is only available to an admin. The only way you could effectively move something is to re-do it and there would have to be nothing else, comments or photos, inside for you to be able to delete. If that is the case, and you want to go ahead, I would save all the more lengthy information in Word or something than rip it all apart and start over. However, that is a lot more work than if your area admin does it for you, so I would recommend sending another note to Saxfiend and giving a little time. The other Admin I think is listed on all the areas to help with GPS coordinates, so probably wouldn’t be the one to contact. If you still get no response try an owner, maybe Andy Laakmanm. You could also request from Andy to be an admin for your area if you are active and knowledgeable. Send him a resume if you wish. M Sprague
