In my opinion:

1. Flower of the East - beautiful location and the design is just gorgeous
2. Burj Dubai - truly awesome height, it really will stand "head and shoulders" above every other skyscraper
3. SWFC - beautiful iconic design, suits Shanghai perfectly
4. ICC - this will complement 2IFC very well. The 2 supertalls will form a gateway into the harbour
5. Trump Tower - a 4th supertall for Chicago, great design and location.

It means the thread stays "stuck" at the top of the page, even when nobody has recently posted.

It's no big deal, I've been here nearly 4 years now, and I'm an active mod. Anyway, there are people with far more posts than me:

OK I thought you are talking about the number of views of this thread.

I think Shanghai World Financial Center really got shafted on this one. I think it should be #2! I really don't see what is so special about International Commerce Center other than its tall, well, just my 2 cents...

Congrats to Burj Dubai!
