This is the e-mail ive just sent them, trying to be very professional, if they dont reply nicely i shall spam their inbox until they have to reinstate the webcams!!!

Mace,

I have been a follower of the Willis Building for several months now, but me and my friends at www.skyscrapercity.com have become increasingly frustrated at the fact that the webcams on the porject have been down for several weeks. Do you have any intentions to fix the problem? Several people have e-mailed I have been wisely informed, and have reciever rather disrespectful replies. I can assure you that I will not tolerate such rudeness when you reply to me at thomas_pratt_123@hotmail.com

thank you in advance for you co-operation in the matter

Thomas Pratt on behalf on skyscrapercity

hopeful;ly the jedi mind trick will work

no one should EVER send out emails on behalf of the management of this site unless they are the management. its irresponsible, and completely ruins things for us.

Fragmentor, by saying you won't tolerate rudeness from them is locking horns with them. They don't have a duty to provide the webcam, it's just frustrating it's down.

^ Yes I wanted people to send sensible emails, I should have realised the average age of forumers is about 14

I didn't mention skyscrapercity in my email, I think it is best they don't know who they are dealing with. If they think it's just a fan from a forum they won't take it as serious...oh well.

The archive for July is up on the website, so the cameras have been working and recording all the info they just haven't been sending the pictures to the website.

Correction: I check the video against the webcam and it looks like archive video stops on the 15th of July.

ah, thats the bit I couldn't see, every entrance was blocked. The installation of the two cranes obviously means the main core will start going up very soon.

Excellent... You can see the small crane is being dismantled also they will be installing one big monster crane on the left hand side of the core and away she rises....

Would be able to see the core of Minerva rising in that second webcam.

Except we won't.
