How did You find Skyscrapercity forums?

I was always curious how the separated individuals found the Skycrapercity forums? What's Your story?

I was interested in Burj Dubai's construction, and so I found a couple good-looking diagrams at Skyscrapercity.

After looking and lurking around, I decided to join, so here I am.

Interesting thread... Its more like a Skybar chat though...
But anyway, why not?
Last spring I read something about the highrise built by BOSMAL in Sarajevo. And I Bosmal's homepage was not too up to date, and so a Googled for more photos. Two seconds later I was in Wonderland... I found Skyscrapercity forums! THANK YOU BOSMAL!

It was a rainy Tuesday afternoon. Portal came home from a hard day of work. He didn't know what to do. So, as usual, he turned on his computer. And surfed on the Internet. And then it happened... By some magic, he came across www.skyscrapercity.com.

Well, maybe it was not raining, it was not on a Tuesday afternoon, and I was not in work. But for sure I am here now...

Interesting question...
Well, I was looking for some visualisations of Eurovea. For some reason I couldnīt open their homepage so I googled the name which brought me here!
This was page of my taste but it wasnīt the reason to join. I was much more surprised by way how people communicate in this forums - very friendly, not arguing, not accusing each other of pointless things and last but not least very inteligent forumers and therefore discussions! That was for me the main reason to join!

Anyway Nyuszi whatīs your story?

I was reading an article about new skyscrapers in bratislava on sme.sk (internet version of a daily newspaper). In the discussion under it I found a link directly to this central european forum.

All I can remember is that I found this forum by accident for sure. I was searching for a Hungarian project as usual at google but I can't remember which one. I immediately hooked on this forum after seeing the topics of the thread as I'm very interested in architecture and new projects in general.

I had the same reason as Ataman had, I suppose. Maybe Palm Jumeirah or Burj al-Arab or sth like this was 1st topic I visited here, really not sure about it:-) Then I looked to GTC and for one yr, I've nearly forgotten that SSC exists.. praise Google 4 finding it again!

I forgot to post my story! Sorry!

Nothing interesting, I was surfing on the net, searching for photos of CE cities and I bumped into SSC forums! I read lots of post before joining. I think the same convinced me to join as .oreo.'s statement. Inteligent topics and forumers.

About me, I think I first found skyscraperpage.com and emporis.com even sooner. But this is the forum that is the best skyscrapers forum I know and I know it almost 1 year.

I used to be a photographer for Emporis.com but it is such a joke.. Best exploitation of human work ever.
Examples if interested:

My story is also very simple. I was looking for some information about Eurovea and in Google results was this forum with the best information and the best visualisations. After a few days when I'd been browsing skycrapercity I registered.
