Trailforks is a mix between a crowd-source & curated database. Although data can be contributed by anyone, we give full control over a regions content to local groups. We don't want to give authority over a region to anyone, so we have to confirm you represent a local association, club or other local steward.
Once verified, we can give out various levels of permission to manage all the content in a region and all content under that regions hierarchy. This can include creating permission groups and adding other users to help in manage a region.
