As he said, you can edit the post instead of making a new one. The thread looks much cleaner then.

The thread would also be cleaner if people did not critique each other.

It's all worth it if it prevents it from happening again. It's considered friendly advice, we're not trying to criticize you.

Try to compare once how much space four posts with one line of text in each will take, compared to one post with four lines of text. Spreading little content across many posts will make the content harder to find, since the forum adds so much "fluff" to every post that the content easily will be buried in it, especially if there's only one line of text per post.

At any rate, it's not as bad as quoting a post with 50 pictures in it, only to add "Nice!" at the bottom. When people do that, I want to look up their address so I can bill them for unnecessary wear and tear to my scroll wheel.

I guess the crown was not topped when we thought it was, a little over a week ago. Now you can tell its reached its full height. I thought the crown was going to look distorted but it really looks great.


Also how do you get to the local threads thanks

Thanks Droneriot

also using the person on the roof of marina 101 I was able to figure out that the crown is about 140 feet

This Dubai Marina has to be the fastest growing cluster in the world with 57th a runner up and Pudong its predecessor.

Yes your right BB is has more projects underway however its not that much of a cluster its so spread out. although these new towers should make it look like a cluster.
