Verifying description of routes, mountains, rocks, ranges, etc. is a major part of executing Mountain Planet mission to make the mountains safer and more accessible to people by providing secure information about routes, conditions, equipment and service providers. To protect the most important content pages from damage the unique mechanism of verification has been developed. Every user who has “Expert” status can protect those pages from editing by increasing page status from “Draft Page” to “Verified Page”. To verify the page the “Expert” have to check all content that page contains and if he agree that provided information is true, reliable and comprehensive then he may change page status to “Verified” by using tool “Verify” located in the sandwich button on the page cover photo. Since the page status has been changed to “Verify” the green marker is added next to the page name to indicate that this page is reliable and only “Experts” may edit content that verified page contains. For other people those pages are available in “read-mode” only. To check the name of the “Expert” who verified the page please click on green marker “Verified” located next to the page name.
