And that's why I resize photos before posting them.

We could have introduced auto-downsizing/window-fitting (enlarged via click) here ages ago, but well...
Would save you and us all loads of time, probably.

I don't mind the lack of auto-downsizing, as it allows you to post good quality panoramas and larger skyline photos in their full glory.

The lack of it does get annoying in instances like the post above though.

You're kidding, pictures larger than the screen let you explore them. And they're more varied.

^ A roughly 1024 pixel image that you can click if you want to explore the full size version seems like the best compromise. A page full of giant images is a pain to scroll through for people with smaller screens and/or slower connections.

That's the point I made.

But in a summary thread it's only worth posting extra large photos if they're good quality and convey detail (eg. a nice skyline shot)

22 Bishopsgate reminds me of a shorter version of Trump Tower Chicago. I really like it though and thick it'd look fantastic with a spire on top.

^ I agree, a spire (directed towards the Thames) would vastly improve the impression of 22 Bishopsgate, as it'd adorn its proportions nicely and make more of a timeless statement. A pinnacle or peak for the City of London.

I'd be happy with a slimmer tower with + a better/more refined taper.

Crossrail will make Farringdon one of London’s “best-connected economic hubs”, business leaders say
Islington Now | 13 March 2016

Crossrail is set to turn Farringdon into one of the capital’s best-connected economic hubs, business leaders say.

One hundred local businesses, including Alexander McQueen and Kurt Geiger, are currently voting on a proposal for the Farringdon and Clerkenwell area to become a Business Improvement District (BID).

If the majority vote ‘yes’, a mandatory levy will be introduced for all these businesses. The money will be invested in projects to reduce crime rates, improve the environment and will give businesses “a direct voice to affect change.”

Elliot Moss, Director of Business Development at Mischcon de Reya, said: “The new epicentre of our great capital will soon be Farringdon and Clerkenwell as Farringdon station sees a tripling of use and London’s ‘front door’ moves here bringing substantial growth.”

It will set out current thinking on building the new river crossing between Silvertown and Greenwich Peninsula, due to be let as a design, build, finance and maintenance deal in east London.

The river crossing will be constructed as a twin bore road tunnel just east of the existing Blackwall Tunnel with connections to the A1020 Silvertown Way/Lower Lea Crossing at the north and to the A102 Blackwall Tunnel Approach at the south.

Night Tube: London Underground 'to launch overnight service in August'
The Independent | 14 March 2016

London Underground's long-awaited new night Tube is pencilled in to be launched in August, sources have revealed.

Transport for London has not officially named dates for the delayed service to finally start, but it is understood that plans have been drawn up to roll it out line by line.

Passengers will be able to travel through the night on Fridays and Saturdays on the Victoria and Jubilee Lines in August and then on the Central, Northern and Piccadilly Lines in September, it is believed.
