Good news, the NE Sub-Forum has just passed the East Midlands Sub-Forum in post count.

I have to admit I was skeptical about how it would work but Chris and NH's work has really paid off.

Sod that, think big - London, we're coming after you!

I have to admit that although I was totally in favour of the new forum, it took me a good few days to get used to it/like it.

Thanks but since the forum has taken off NH is the one who puts in most of the effort, especially with local news updates. We both do off forum communication between each other for ideas about making it better, problem solving, and everything else in between. Though I have to say that both me an NH worked hard on our campaign (also with your help and that of the mods) to gain the Sub-Forum, NH for the last 2 weeks or so into our campaign did most of the work. NH becoming a mod on here is a credit to his service on here, and the post count on here is a credit to all you who post on it.
I'm pleased that it has worked so well.

Same here. I was very dubious it would work. But it has - spectacularly!

All involved deserve the plaudits.

I should probably add, that although it took a few days to like it, I do really like the forum as it is now! Definitely a big success.

I'm pleased that 'the Downing situation' has resolved itself, for now at least!

Sadly, it didn't resolve itself though.

Yes, well, at least it is done.

Two interesting photos threads, about us, from overseas forums.

The second one is a later 'English Language' repeat of the first Dutch one, I think . . .

An important reminder about the posting of images
into threads on Skyscraper City . . .


This note is posted here in order to EMPHASISE the post by Jan, that is currently in the "announcements" section above our forum.

Announcements are not there permanently, and I feel this important message should be retained permanently somewhere on our forum, and this thread is the logical place for it.

The announcement, dated May 12th 2010 from Jan (Administrator) is . . .

If anyone has any questions about Jans post, or requires anything clarified, please ask me (Newcastle Historian) either on this thread or by PM.

Thanks - I have also made the changes in relation to the PM's we exchanced

Apologies for taking my time - wasnt ignoring you, just didnt really get the chance to sit down and spend some time sorting it BUT it is as far as im aware up to date - though I think one or two developments might be out of date so need to be removed BUT I will have a look through it later

Hi Geordie, its looking good!

On the subject of the completed, or cancelled, or dormant projects, that you mention. As far as the Development Summary is concerned, how do you think we should treat them?

I see the Development Summary's main role as being our 'summary and index' (and 'link' to) our currently on-going LIVE projects.

However, it can also fulfil a potentially permanent (useful) role, throughout the life of our sub-forum, as a full and complete 'index and record' (also) of each and every project that we cover, even after that project may have become concluded.

In other words, a project could just retain its 'allocated number' (in the D S index) after completion (or whatever) and therefore retain its link to its own project thread, and would just have its final suffix changed to "completed" or "cancelled" (or whatever is appropriate) in both the thread title AND on the Development Summary Index itself.

What do you (and others) think?

Yeah I think thats a good idea - if the project is dead, dormant etc we will just add the necessary description - maybe we could split the index into a couple of sections, live projects and dormant projects

Geordie

I have found some new renders and photos for the 'Waygood' development, and have posted them at 'post 27' on the thread . .

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...5&postcount=27

I noticed there wasn't any on the DS.

Please note, I have changed the name of the DORMANT 'Project Thread' (that had its last posting in October 2009) called

Gateshead Quays 2 (GQ2) | Gatehead | Various | Dormant

to . .

Gateshead Quays - Developments - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=981438

so that we can now start using it again (in the light of the Gateshead Quays NEWS of today, 24th May 2010) and it can cover all 'developments' issues around Gateshead Quays.

I have made it into one of our (many) 'Developments' threads (rather than one of our 'multi-project' threads) so that when any future new project emerges from there, it can still get its own individual project thread, in the normal way.

This is because we already have a number of individual and active Project Threads for specific buildings in the Gateshead Quays area . .

HILLGATE QUAY
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=988109

HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=982076

ONE MILLENIUM QUAY
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=987951

BALTIC BUSINESS QUARTER
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=983282

TYNE BRIDGE TOWER
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=981924

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE & EXHIBITION CENTRE
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=994439


The alternative (I thought about) would have been to change this dormant GQ2 thread into one of our "Multi-Project" threads (like, Ouseburn, West End, etc, etc) where emerging individual projects DO NOT get their own specific project thread.

This is the 'differentiation' between this forums "types of threads" that has developed since our forum started last October.

BUT, in view of the pre-existence of numerous 'Gateshead Quays' project threads, I thought a 'DEVELOPMENTS' thread, more appropriate!

(NB - Copy of this note posted onto the "Naming & Moving Threads" thread, also)
