So listen now carfuly all of you haters, cause I'm not gonna repeat this, since it's off topic! I am using an official alternate measurement method which until 2009 was used by the CTBUH too! You can attack me as much as you want but I won't change it! It's funny how you have no problems attacking me for my diagram but you don't make your own diagram Non-productive hatred is easier than doing something, huh?
I told you this the last time you did the checklist, and you never replied to it.

There's a reason that the rood category is removed.

Tell me, where is Burj Khalifa's roof? Tell me where Shanghai Tower's, Abraj Al Bait's, Petronas's, and Empire State Building's roofs are.

Roofs are getting hard to distinguish. That's why the category was removed.

And like another poster said: it's 2011.

I like how 1WTC is now it's own distinct building as opposed to being indistinguishable in all that skyscraper madness.

You as someone from NYC should know, that on 911 it wasnt nowhere close to Hudson cuz of the WFC. The left pic is ancient, and crap to compare the complexes.

he isn't the one who started the checklist. So you really don't have to ask him.

Yeah, the addition of the WFC certainly made the whole complex look much bigger.

I find the new WTC more aesthetically pleasing than the old one, this is no disrespect, the old WTC looked nice too but the new one is just better looking.

and itt'll be better integrated, than the old superblock and it's Austin Tobin Plaza. I prefer the new complex so much over the former one, allthough i sometimes have nostalgic feelings when thinking about the old one. Im curios to know hot the new WTC will look like from Wash Square Park, when seen through the arch.

Sure thing

Here is how to make it:

1, go to http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/

2, look below the city search window, there you'll see "Full Search Form", click on it and you'll get the menu where you'll type in the name of the city or country, measurement methods, statuses of buildings displayed, types of buildings displayed etc.

3, then just take a screenshot and edit it in MS Paint and you have a progress diagram

people complain about 1wtc cheating because of its spire, but no question the mecca clock tower and Shanghai World Financial Center that stand on pedestals.

Guys, you can go into your Control Panel settings and block users posts from showing up. That's what I did for you-know-who's posts. I don't see any of it anymore. I suggest you do the same if it gets to you like it did me.
