probably a stupid question, but would one of the mods be able to confirm the criteria for what buildings are allowed to be nominated with regard to its height?

exactly. I don't like that some people nominate five stories buildings that aren't even close to a skyscraper

Just because someone has a different opinion than you doesn't mean he is trolling.

the thing is the majority of people have the same opinions and perceptions as i have.

how can someone put the finest and most iconic skyscrapers in her/his ugliest skyscrapers list.

on top of that, i don't find one world trade centre, empire state building, chrysler building, and the gherkin ugly AT ALL.

in fact they are vital icons and world class landmarks of those world class cities.

i highly doubt that you would agree with me or stay quiet if i did put frankfurt's top 3 finest skyscrapers in my top 3 ugliest skyscrapers list.

do we understand each other?
