This thread is bigger and better than that .


Let's go for more diversity .


Toronto is cool ..


Sacramento is cool ..


You can prefer either ...


I just would like to see more variety in pics on here re American cities .. no big deal really ..







I mean this with the greatest respect ...
This is getting ridiculous. People, he's simply trolling us at this point. It's the same rhetoric posted almost every day.

Agreed. It has to stop. The quality of any thread is down to the participation of all its members. If we don't make any effort to contribute photos of our own, we must either put up with the favourite cities and choices of others, or move on to a different section.

There is more to participating than asking others to do the work for us! So, let's all move on and enjoy more photos!

What's wrong about discussing stuff? I feel like these threads have too many photos and not enough actual discussion. It's "DISCUSS" in the subject after all.

There's nothing wrong with discussing, but DCFC1 didn't discuss, he was just complaining that others uploaded too many pictures of the cities that they liked instead of cities that he would like to see. Why it didn't occur to him to do that himself, I don't know.

Discussion is not the problem here and of course we would love more discussion. The demands were not for more discussion.... or even for any discussion at all, but rather just continued complaints by the same member (who has not actually posted any photos in this thread) in a number of photo threads about the cities chosen by other members as their favourite skylines, and what apparently was not being posted. I deleted a dozen or so comments the other day that were not as polite and pleasant. Repeatedly people, myself included, have suggested that if members are not happy with the photos they are seeing, they should make the effort like everyone else to post some pictures themselves rather than complain about what is being posted. This suggestion apparently fell on deaf ears.

Similarly, if people want more discussion, they have to make the effort to contribute some discussion themselves to get the ball rolling, rather than just complaining others don't discuss enough. Unless they discuss things themselves they are not contributing to a solution!

Hopefully, we can now get back to posting photos, and discussing them if people want to. That is what the thread is all about!

What part of posting, almost every day, "you guys suck! you post the same cities every day! post these ones that I like!"...is "discussing?"

I hope Mexico City keeps this up. It's surely destined to be one of the best in America within 15-20 years.

Mexico City is barely at the beginning of its construction boom.... with a few +200m and 3 supertalls on the way for that skyline!

Is Mexico City's population expanding at a high rate?

Not really... From 2010 to 2005 it grew only 0.7%. From 2005 to 2010 0.3%.

BUT, population is kind of "improving". The city is getting more expensive to live in and the job market is becoming much more specialized.
