In my opinion the categories should be:

0-99m
100-199m
200-299m
300-399m
400-499m
500-599m
... (and so on)

I think, we don't need extra names for each category like super- or hypertall. The hight in meters/foots is adequate and so anybody can decide by oneself what is super- or hypertall.

the distances between the categories have to be bigger with every step. there is much difference between 100 and 200m but not between 500 and 600m

seems like both polls turned out equal so not sure what to do?
i have another idea. nothing to do with height. what about 2 separate sections?
1.projects that are actually UC
2. projects that are approved or proposed
we now have 7 pages or 175 threads in supertall section.
very mixed and very confusing and VERY popular atm.
i think a construction section would be good because it will just CONSTRUCTION photos ect on each project.
what do you think?
