They have done some changes on Spanish forum too. I was looking for the Chinese infrastructure thread where it always has been (The Resto del Mundo, i. e. "Rest of the world" subforum) without noticing they had created a new subforum for all infrastructure around the world.

On the bottom-right corner of Highways & Autobahns it's written who are the moderators of the section. Anything strange?

Edit: fixed

Right now I'm making a research project about a new design for road signs in spain (for the university) and I need some opinions about this sketch:

Heck, when I went to Tarbes (France) they had a sign saying it is twinned with my hometown and with some place in West Germany

Technically West Germany still exists, but no East Germany anymore .

Yes, but using the term "East Germany" is not a good idea. The area of ex-GDR is often called as "Mitteldeutschland" ("Central Germany"), where East Germany would be the region that's now a part of Poland. Of course politically it is not correct, but, nonetheless, if you say "East Germany", is not clear and is a little bit ambigous.

My oppinion:
- make the signs larger (also with larger font)
- keep that small "motorway exit" sign next to "200 m"
- keep the arrow for the right sign
- center the A1 & R2 signs on the middle sign

rule no1: if you want signs to look good, make all the boards in the same dimension on y axis (vertically).
the largest problem at spanish signs is mess with road numbers. try to reduce them and leave the rest as it was. or try to imitate some other countries (Germany for instance) but leave spanish font.

I've already read an interesting discussion in "border crossings", initiated by a Swedish forumer NordikNerd. I was thinking for some time what a devil made him considering himself as an Scandinavian-Euro-Asian more than just a simple European. Only logical conclusion I come to, is that it (devil) has to be a moonshine or so.

We all know that Swedes have quite limited access to alcohol and it's also very expensive. So, all the restrictions put them into dark area of home made liquors called nicely "moonshine". I experienced some of Swedish ones and must admit its highest quality and best taste possible.

By the way. Did you know that one of the most known illegally produced liquor is Polish "Śliwowica Łącka" (plum brandy of Łącko). It was even awarded the best "Śliwowica" in the world by an American jury. Similary to French Cognac and some other regional products, its area of distillation is limited exclusively to Łącko commune. It's even got a trade mark and is still illegal.

What do you mean? It can be produced legally only in Lacko but it's produced illegally elsewhere?
BTW, illegally-distilled liquors aren't illegal just because of tax issues but also because they aren't controlled and can contain hazardous chemicals like methanol if improperly produced. I wouldn't drink them.

Talking about NordikNerd... I admire the balls. He's opened up a thread this morning that will have the entire Yugo mob on SSC go after him... www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1629511

Chris, perhaps you ought to get rid of it, if you're not limited to your jurisdiction...

Let me quote a Wikipedia article as the answer why distilling "Śliwowica Łącka" does not correspond to the Polish law:

Quote:
In Poland it is a well-recognised brand and it also gained much fame abroad.[1] However, as producing alcohol outside of established industrial distilleries is illegal in Poland, so is the Śliwowica łącka.[1] Numerous social organisations have been campaigning to have this law changed, so far unsuccessfully.[1] A "Fruit-harvesting Festival" celebrating the Śliwowica is held yearly in Łącko.[1]

Some thypical Northern Italian wines (Fragolino and Clinto) have been banned by the EU few years ago because they may contain methanol. However many people still produce them and it's not difficult to buy them from farmers and even many restaurants keep some unlabelled bottles "under the table". Producing them for personal consumption is still legal but the commercialization isn't (although is often tolerated).

The thread itself isn't so stupid but it should renamed as "Homeless people in your city", "Beggars in your city" or "Illegal immigants in your city", to make it not racist and inoffensive. I doubt it's only a Balkan problem, I'm sure there are immigrants from other parts of the world and even native Swedes with alchool\substances addiction problems who cause such troubles.

I need more opinions from my sketches.

Which is better (please give attention to the position of the right panel):

(a)


(b)


Please don't notice the forms or colors, this isn't the final form yet, only is a wireframe
