** A few new rules : please make the Lebanese Cities and villages and the Projects thread a PURE picture thread ONLY.
Whenever someone posts a picture, please do not say great pic, thank you.. wonderful...etc... We already know
it's a great picture, that's why it is in the threads. However, if you have questions,
feel free to ask them. Also when you get a picture from any website or
any picture that is not one of yours, cite the owner of the photo by using ''courtesy of ...''.
SSSankkk you all and keep up the great work!
Remember I love you all but we are just trying to keep this professional, organized and clean for our
foreigners and hey, who knows, maybe our future investors


Please state and explain why, if anyone, doesn't feel comfortable with this rule

they already know that we APPRECIATE every single picture they take/post in these thread. Maybe you can thank them when you ask them questions and/or when commenting about a specific detail of that tower/picture (ie. thank you for the picture Nouggy, the Marina Towers looks fabulous, but I dont think the Four Season Hotel will look great beside it)

This rule is convenient for many reasons Mahdi:
1) Not all of us have dsl/rogers high speed internet or whatever it is your country has. When lets say I post a picture of the Marina Tower, I leave and 10 minutes later I come back on again and see you have made a comment about it, and I opened the thread and all I see is: Thank you great picture. If I had dial up, you know how long it would take me to open the page, excited that someone posted a new picture, and when opened all I see is ''Thank you, Great Picture''??
2) It would be easier and quicker for us moderators to go on ssc every once in a while and do a quick check that everything is going fine in the threads and our sections.

I just want to remind everyone that signatures are to be no more than 3 lines and text should be no bigger than 3 font.

If you have not noticed already, I have been editing user signatures on my own that have not been the appropriate size. Please follow the guidelines and help us out!

Thanks

There are a lot more than four missing. If you havent noticed already, over 300 posts have been deleted in total from various project threads - in line with the new policy. As I stated weeks ago, I am in the process of "cleaning house" by deleting all OT and unsubstantial posts in each thread.



A reminder of Rule #8:

PLEASE keep the Projects threads focused and on topic. Please strictly post ONLY about the project the thread is about and ONLY post if you have something substantial to add to the thread. This means you can only post picture updates or regular updates, renderings, news articles about the project, etc. You can also ask questions and provide relevant information. DO NOT simply reply with one-line replies reflecting your personal views and again, there is no need for posting just for the sake of thanking those who post updates.

Another new sub-section has been added to our expanding forum!

This new section, "Development & Economic News" should serve as a place to discuss all issues related to development and the economy, construction projects, etc... the PROJECTS section shall remain ONLY for threads about specific individual projects.


Enjoy!

Important Notice

To All Members and Guests

Please note that during the last two days, the forum is being 'attacked' by a newcomer who constantly is getting banned and registering with a new username. He is a troll.

BE CAREFUL He is using the same usernames our members have with a slight difference in the spelling or punctuation. Moreover, he is posting uncivilised remarks and statements nearly in every thread in the forum.

Hopefully we solve this problem soon.

With the help of other SSC moderators and administrators we have been able to ban this user multiple times and delete/prune all of his posts and threads. It seems now the situation is under control and sorry for any inconvenience.

The admin team can ban this individual's IP address and email account(s)... vBulletin is defiantly sophisticated enough to handle that... I mean the forum I co-admin can do it and their software is not as sophisticated as this one... As this individual has become a giant pain in the ass for the ME section there should be an IP block put on him...

Also I would like to apologise if it seems that I inflamed this individual, I assure you my comments directed at him had honest intentions and not to add fodder for him to use.

Just an FYI, for many reasons we have decided to remove the Cedar News sub-section of the Cedar Cafe sub-forum. Many of the threads that were in that section have either been merged with others, moved to other sub-forums, or deleted.

For those of you that have been wondering, since most of the moved threads have been moved to the Cafe, many of our post-counts have dropped (since posts in the Cafe dont contribute to post count while they did - for some reason - in the News section).

If you have any question/comments please post them here.
