I miss V already though

He posted some great pics from Flickr and, though off topic, brought a quirkiness to todays discussion I quite enjoyed...

Something tells me he will be back, or he will reveal his secret identity in a PM...
I miss him too. His vivid language brought a refreshing change of pace.

Hi all.

Picasa :

Ursula - 08 02 15





Valeri Lev - 08 02 17







Great to see the steel pace ramping up. Perhaps the will get to the scheduled pace :

If you understand the nuances of the English language, he was writing poetry about the Burj Dubai...and subtle quotes which describes the intolerable actions you've just taken on him.
Poetic, insightful, on topic, great pictures and delicious wordplay!
His first piece was a wonderful description of this tower...and the place that you call home.
However I wouldn't expect an Albanian ex-pat to comprehend that.
Shame on you.

hope this is accurate. hard to do without photos.
ive also detailed the 3 tallest structures in world @ left.
Its now lev160 or 617m high. the next section will probably come up as next 2 x3.2m floors which will mean it will top out at habitable section next week maybe at 624m.
This 8 storey section is the last of the havitable levels and all have concrete floors with steel frame.
After lev162, the next 40 floors will be all steel.

I can't believe so few of you have seen the movie V for Vendetta, but anyways, good to see that this thing is picking up speed again.

Ah, I remember Vanrhenrik...you're right...he was awsome!
I got so many complaints about him at SSP, over a period of many months about his re-quoting huge reams of pictures...followed by quotes like..."great"
I gave him about 10 PM's asking him to stop doing it, so eventually I suspended him for one week, he never came back again.
Then he started posting more and more here.
You had to give it to him though....he was crazy about this building!

V on the other hand has done nothing wrong....I may even start a petition in the skybar to get him back!

I think he has a few fans?

I have a feeling that the reason he was banned was because he posted in this thread 13 times in less than an hour which is annoying as all hell. The forum isn't someone's personal IM. Even ZZ-II posts less than 10 percent as much as he was on pace for--and the fact that it was all in obnoxious red type didn't make it any better.

If you had been online when it was happening, perhaps you would be less enthusiastic to have him come back. It was very annoying. As soon as anyone would say anything, he'd be on with his pseudo-schizophrenic alliterative drivel. When I went to bed last night I knew for sure he would be banned by morning.

I suppose you're right, 13 times in one hour is on the "spammy" side.
I enjoyed it nevertheless. I had the same feeling he would be banned, but I would have liked to have seen where it was going...albeit with just one daily anecdote....not 13.

Hey Sky.

How's your new DubaiMegaProjects site with the special access to sensetive info coming along ?

I kinda thought V was a little over the top too -

Hi Fury, I've amassed over 450 big projects and have now created icons for all of them.
The whole site will be idiotproof and a lot sexier than the old one.
I'm developing 3D glass effect images and the front page will be large projects like Burj Dubai, Dubailand, Marina, Palms etc....which will direct to its own portal site, all interactive using ASP.NET and Flash.
I want a clean look, no links, menus or nav bars. All browsing will be done through navigable icons.

Yes Skytower. Your right.
When I read it I thought most peeps won't get this.
Oh well, it is a chat forum, not a university coffee bar at Oxford.

Did anyone else notice that in every post, the first and last letter was a V?

Actually, that's 6 posts I've made in one hour now....even though just like V, they are in response to questions asked.

I don't want to get banned now do I?

Didn't notice that but I did enjoy the imaginative prose as compared to a lot of posts that don't even have a single properly constructed sentence. lol.

I love your diagrams Culwulla - keep up the good work!

Ok, post #7 in one hour!
Sorry for being pedantic Hollie, looking back through the posts, V never posted more than 3 responses to questions asked in one hour.
He was asked 5 direct questions and responded to 3 remarks about his posts.
Thirteen posts in 7 hours! I've now sent 7 posts in one hour, 4 of which are off topic.

Am I now to be banned too Altin?

You didn't post in that absolutely ******* annoying red bold lettering ____V____ was posting in....haha. Made my eyes hurt.


Anyway, I'm a huge fan of Fury's pictures. I like how the glass is clean and shiny. I remember the glass looking dusty at first but it seems like all that has changed.


I just noticed the tower is above the Chicago Spire's proposed height. Nice. Thanks CULWULLA. That diagram makes me feel like my head is in the clouds.

I didn't know red or bold font was worthy of a banning.....nope...just checked the rules....it's not.
I absolutely hate injustice.
Browsing the rules it does stipulate that the F word can get you banned....so I'd watch out for the "overmoderators" if I were you!
