the north east subforum is only a thousand or so posts behind the glasgow subforum, which has basically become a scottish (or at least central belt) subforum in recent years. not bad considering ours only started a few months back.

No idea which thread this would go into (any ideas?) but I note from a Lib Dem leaflet that has just come through my door that Heaton Library has definitely been sold, so presumably it'll be converted at some point in the next year or so.

Cheers NH - I've never really known whether Heaton fully counted as "East End" or not - or whether the post should go into "small developments" or one of the other threads. But that seems a pretty good place for now (if they start building it might get its own thread, I guess we'll see).

And for the first time, the NE Sub-Forum has overtaken Glasgow's/Scotland's Sub-Forum on post count, though it is still close at the moment and each Sub-Forum will overtake one and other untill one ca build a gap between them (the NE Sub-Forum).

Following recent notifications on this forum, plus others received by 'PM' and on E-MAIL, the following TWO new (and excellent!) "Local Photos" websites have been added to Section 9 of our (Sticky) WEBSITES THREAD . . .

NOTE - both of these photos & discussion sites are "on Facebook", so you may need to register on Facebook to fully view them.

See below extract from Section 9 of our WEBSITES thread :


9 - LOCAL PHOTOS, LOCAL HISTORY, & LOCAL INTEREST WEBSITES (IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER)

NEWCASTLE-UPON-TYNE IN THE PAST (ON 'FACEBOOK')
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=60218464630

OLD PICTURES OF CENTRAL AND EAST END OF NEWCASTLE (ON 'FACEBOOK')
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=356770076261


I have also posted the above message on the Historic Newcastle thread, where some of the notifications about these new sites were originally made.

Suggested new site link

NH - this a suggested new site for the links page, I've just checked and I'm surprised it's not in there (unless I've missed it).

http://www.tomorrows-history.com/

It's a site dedicated to the history of the North East. At first glance it seems to be County Durham focussed, but it does cover the whole of the NE.

The 'Maps' link from the menu is especially useful, as it lets you access various editions of the of the OS and also compare them side by side. It's accessed through the 'Durham Miner' site but seems to cover Newcastle too. Unfortunately it is very clunky in terms of pasting links to specific maps etc. See my comments on the "St James' Park" thread as an illustration of the problem. If anyone can find a better way of linking maps then it would be super!

Thanks deebex, having just now had a look at the site, I too am "amazed" that we didn't already have it! it has great potential and i intend to have a good search through it, when I get the chance.

I have now added it to "Section 9" of the WEBSITES thread, as shown below . .

9 - LOCAL PHOTOS, LOCAL HISTORY, & LOCAL INTEREST WEBSITES (IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER)

TOMORROWS HISTORY - THE REGIONAL LOCAL STUDIES SITE FOR NORTH EAST ENGLAND
http://www.tomorrows-history.com/public_index.php


It is easy to find, as that section (as it is now such a lengthy section) is filed in alphabetical order.

Thanks again Deebex!

Now added, thanks Dan.

It is also in 'Section 9', under "D" for Dunston (for ease of finding) as shown . .

I have also now separately linked the "Durham Miner" MAPS SITE into Section 9 of the Websites Thread also. That seems a very useful addition and certainly covers all the areas of Newcastle that I looked for!

See below copy of the thread entry for this LINK . .

Re the proposed Newcastle - All Open Spaces, Parks, Allotments etc (Excluding Town Moor) thread . . .

I have just sent the below to b4mmy, so it would help if we do not post on this subject on the "As it Might Have Been" thread, pending the arrival of the new thread, as this would mean more posts would need to be requested to be transferred!

Cheers.

So,

(1) Can you start a new thread, called . .

Newcastle - All Open Spaces, Parks, Allotments etc (Excluding Town Moor)

(2) Can you remove the following posts from the NEWCASTLE - "as it might have been" thread, and transfer them into the above new thread . .

I have had to write to the mods a few times recently, to implement agreed thread titles changes, and the end result (apart from having to do loads of 'individual messages') is that we seem to have developed a fairly standardised "non-project thread" (which are standardised by SSC anyway) style of thread title.

This 'style' facilitates the use of a thread in as broad as possible a way, thus avoiding the need for new endless little short threads, that disappear out-of-sight down the forum, shortly after they are started.

A good example of this is the "North Shields" thread, which we recently merged with the "Smiths Dock" thread, and renamed it as . .

North Shields area - Developments

SEE - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...3&postcount=26

This thread is now in harmony (title wise) with a number of our other "area developments" thread titles.

There are still a few similar situations outstanding, so I have written to our mod (b4mmy) to take care of those all at once (see below copy of my 'PM' to him today). If anyone has any concerns about these changes, or the idea of harmonisation and broadening the potential use of these 'area' threads, then please let me know. We can easily amend things again!

Yes, the "Newcastle as it might have been" thread.

I agree with Chris, Talisker, is it ok with you if we merge this into the appropriate thread?

Have a look at my note on the "FEEDBACK/DISCUSSION" thread . .

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1052305

at 'Post 17' . . . about the problems of too many 'short/new' threads that usually quickly just disappear out of sight down the forum, especially when we already have a thread for the subject.

Didn't we have a thread aimed at bridges?, but then maybe that was for ones across the Tyne.

My bad.

There is still a thread for ideas for "New Tyne Crossings".

This topic (the proposed "Botanic Bridge" over Claremont Road) is a "Newcastle as it might have been" thread topic, don't you think?

Thank you very much for that link, I've been searching for a photo of the former Borough and Sussex Courts in Sunderland for years.
