How much or what was built from the building before the construction stopped?

this building has to be in the u/c section, not in the proposed. There is a difference between "on hold" and "proposed" and the difference is that "construction" has already started.

Me too. There's a hole in my heart for as long as it is on hold

I think the u/c section should be reserved for towers that are actually being constructed. No work is happening right now or has for months. Let's reserve the u/c section for the towers that are actually being built. When work resumes, then it should be moved back.

I'm just tired of having to keep hunting for the thread. I agree...it is under construction, although work has stopped. I think something will happen eventually...hopefully this year.

In that case there should be a section just for "on hold". It is conceptually wrong to put a skyscraper that HAS BEGUN construction in the "Proposed" section. There is no logic whatsoever, and logic is needed if you want for a common mortal to find the thread in the database of the entire website. In the proposed section therefore is wrong. Find another place.

100% agreed! I raised this issue earlier, something needs to happen to clear up this confusion. Why can't they just make an "On Hold" section? Are there really that many new comers to the site that we have to have ONLY under construction and proposed?

Unfortunately "Proposed Supertalls" is misleading, but it's meant to be for all towers in either "Proposed/Approved/Demo/Prep/Hold" stage. Basically, anything but U/C, T/O, or Com(plete).

Confusing, yes. But I think CS should stay here until the construction actually resumes.

The problem with that is that if I were to subscribe to every thread I follow, my email box would be jammed. I find it more convenient to go right to SCC and browse what looks interesting that day...

I don't get email alerts, rather I just come to the site everyday and look at my User CP to see what threads have been updated.

NASA scientists discover another black hole in the center of the galaxy. No, wait someone turned Hubble pointing 400 North Lake Shore Drive Chicago.

No harm done.

Tell me about it. That's why I created different email account just for this website and I barely check my emails there.

Guys, there's an option to not get mail notifications of threads. If you select this option the threads with new posts will show up when you click "User CP" in the header. You can also select certain threads to have e-mail notification and others not to have it. There's no need to make up another e-mail account.

I did asked a several MODs about this issue a while ago. They told me to accept it or unsubscribe the threads. That was almost two years ago.
