Keep this nonsense out of the projects thread.

Stick to discussing view count jumps in your dedicated thread in the French forum: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...48664&page=120 instead of diluting this one with claim and counter-claim.
First you have no credibility to speak like that. And of course that's another biaised statement as you know your sad colleague started the discussion on your holly thread boohooing like a child. Also to your remembering some brtish dumbasses started that futile competition when they realized that Paris was the first to reach the 1 million views (and without cheating). So please behave. Merci.

Don't speak to SE9 like that, he was simply just pointing out the error of your ways.

How about we get rid of the "views" column from SSC altogether? I never actually notice it when browsing the site, and the only place it's mentioned, boringly, is in this thread - which I like visiting and reading - in some kind of bizarre recurring dick measuring contest.

Get rid of the "views" column and this boring argument goes away. Also, it seems clear there are some mods abusing their position. They shouldn't be mods if that's the case.

The pettyness is truly outstanding from the same culprits over and over again. Do they not teach morals and deceny in continental Europe. Move on and stop trying to derail this thread because it is certainly one of the best on this forum.

No point responding to a poster like that.

Just continue posting London projects in a concise manner, there's a lot to get through!

Mods don't have access to view counters, only System Admins do.

And I know which one is doing it...and yes, he's French.


Anyway, I've made my point, it's in the public domain as to what's going on around here, the other Admins will either do something about him or not..but I'm not holding my breath, once you're in the little clique of SSC Admins, you can basically do what you want.

Shame really, as it just discredits the forum.

Impressive as always. Seems to be loads of new projects every day!
London must be growing pretty fast, one of the fastest in the developed world surely?

Yes, it's just about the fastest growing large city in the developed world.

At the 2001 Census, the population of London was 7,322,400. At the 2011 Census, the population of London was 8,174,100. In ten years, London grew by 851,700.

To put that in context: at the 2000 Census, the population of New York City was 8,008,278. At the 2010 Census, the population of NYC was 8,175,133, which gives a ten year increase of 166,855.

That is interesting. Birmingham grew by 88,000 (9.1%) people in the same period and is expected to grow by another 150,000 over the next 10 years.

London has a estimated growth of 14.1% (1,152,548.100) in the next 10 years - 1/7th of todays population. http://populationmatters.org/2012/po...nth-ten-years/

Estimated 350,000 new homes within London over the next 10 years and 3 million across the UK.

Still much more to do. I've drove on Northern part of A406 few days ago, gosh, some areas around there just awful and look like parts of third world countries. For example, what is happening here, why all these houses are boarded up: https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=Lon...,82.86,,0,6.03
Looks terrible.
Still transformations in London are amazing even comparing with 10 years ago.

although interesting to note that the projected increase only puts it slightly above Londons pre War population of an estimated 8.6 million

Those houses are boarded up for their impending demolition, to make way for a housing development by the Notting Hill Trust:
