Ireland Forum

Any chance of getting a Irish forum in here...?The country is going through some major changes and I think we could muster up a few threads out of it.

Hello Irish Kop,

welcome on board.

I think it's probably something Gothic would like to do but there haven't been enough Irish members for it to work, although we have a few.

The best thing to do is to start some construction threads in the Projects and construction section

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=57

and build up the numbers of Irish members from there. I'm sure once the numbers are up you will get a seperate thread

Thanks for the welcome.

btw, we have had attempts at creating Dublin/Ireland project threads before, but they are always ruined by sentimental UK forumers who turn the thread into some story about the time they went to a pub or kissed a girl in Wicklow
It basically makes a mockery of Ireland projects and shows that its not taken seriously on this forum.

My proposal there should be an Irish forum along with a Scottish and Welsh one in the Euroscrapers section like the Germany forum setup.The UK & Ireland Skyscraper Forums should change to England scrapers

I propose that the UK & Ireland Skyscraper Forums be split into City and Yokel Forums. In the former, all the people I've got things in common with, living in cities such as Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, London, Dublin, Leeds can talk together about buildings, multi-culturalism, urbanity, art, beauty, desire and dolphins.

In the Yokel forum, turnip-worrying numpties (all two of them) can happily go on about proud they are of being "English" and how much they hate Scottish, Irish and Welsh people.

LOL...we dont want to be split to much as after all we are all the same in this part of the world.

Suppose an Irish forum would set the cat amongst the pigeons reg. places like Londonderry and Belfast, i.e. would they be part of the UK forums or the Irish one.

Well if it was an 'Ireland' forum and not a 'Republic of Ireland' forum then it could cover the whole of the island of Ireland. I think it would make more sense to divide it geographically than politically (but then I'm a Brit and maybe someone from Ireland would feel differently).

I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'the Germany forum setup' but I agree with you about creating Irish, Welsh and Scottish forums.
I've long wanted to see a Welsh forum created and I think if the decision is made based on number of users and level of development activity in each area then Wales should definately now qualify. We have more Welsh members than ever before and I think if there was a dedicated section then we'd get more. Discussions in the Welsh threads are always very constructive and we dont have any of the stupid childish bickering that seems to happen so often in the other forums. There are currently four active threads directly related to development in Wales, the Cardiff, Newport and Swansea threads are very popular and all three are almost always on page one of Projects and Construction. The only reason we don't have more threads is because we dont have our own forum, if we did there would be many more including one for each major development in each city. That, by the way, would be quite a number as a lot of pretty sizeable developments are begining or are about to begin construction in all three cities. This would be a lot more threads than were present when the other subforums were opened and I would expect the popularity of a Wales forum to be similar to that of the other subforums.

I've hinted loads of times that I'd like to see a Wales subforum created but I dont think I've ever properly asked so mods and admins can consider this post a formal request. Lets just put it this way, a Wales subforum is guaranteed to be more popular than the pointless 'Completed Projects' one!

As cute as that squirrel picture of yours. However we you know you must be talking about a very different set of forums, because of the posters of your very progressive unionist friends seem to be obsessive threads on keeping the Royal Navy larger than the French Fleet, and other such liberal causes like that or else the "whats happening in the latest series of social misfits put in a badly designed house and watch them bitch about each other and painfully slowly vote each other off". .

Nice dig there with the South-Western Stereotypes, and as hilarious as it was true. Unfortunately there is a tad of double standards, because Liverpudlian Forumers are just about the most sensitive of all to those idiotic and inane, Scouse Thieving Stereotypes perpetuated by the London Media, but I guess West Country folk (especially them rural ones) are perfectly fair game.

BTW I've never said a bad word about the Irish, - so I'm not sure where thats come from - but I guess you'd rather align yourself with the Unionist Ian Paisely types, than someone who regards Michael Collins as a hero.

Collins ain't no hero of mine, any more than the vile Paisley. His opponent DeValera was a villain, tho. I like James Larkin and Sean O'Casey, if we're talking about nationalist-minded Irishman from the past. I'm not especially interested in Ireland, however.

Dublin intrigues me as a visitor and I'd like to visit Cork one day. The rest of Ireland doesn't really seem to be my bag.

Sorry about the worzel jibes.

Any forum would not be a Politics forum so some of the above should not be a concern.
