No worries mate. It would not be worth...

My cousin, civil engineer, couple of years ago worked as a project manager on a large construction in Malmoe. He once had to deal with a Swedish electrician, who was not able to earth some typical, wall-built-in electrical sockets. My cousin asked him what he actually was doing there if he couldn't cope with such straightforward job. He answered that it's not his specialisation, he was a bulb-installing electrician (or so) and there was need to wait for another chap, who specialised in sockets.

i actually came here searching for motorways' photos. in that time, believe or not, they were quite exotic in the internet. not to mention photos from Romanian or Bulgarian motorways, that was rare as hell (i remember only 2 or 3 of RO amd maybe 5 from BG available).

Times have surely changed for internet road enthusiasts. I too remember that photos from eastern Europe were scarce before 2005. The interest in highway photography (sign-by-sign photography) has been reduced by Google Street View and the fact that most motorways have been photographed by now. Right now highway filmography is quite popular, there isn't a major U.S. metro area that's not been covered by highway filmers.

I used to kept myself out of this forum, since I thought it was about skyscrappers only (what interest me not). :-) Then, I was thinking about buying a new apartment in April, and since in Slovak section, new apartment buildings in Bratislava are discussed, I registered. After that I found this great section.

I happened on SSC through an image search for either the Périphérique or the "voies sur berges" in Paris (I forget which).

I got here because Chris kept linking stuff from the Highway and Autobahn section when I asked for sources of pics that he posted on the Dutch road forum

I registered on SSC in 2010, but I found the site about 1 year earlier. I kept lurking around until I had something interesting to say and then I registered.

I found SSC after searching for some road related pictures and information from Romania. I mostly read the Romanian road section at the beginning of my SSC time, but after that I discovered the Romanian thread on H&A, and after I realized how the forum is divided I found out H&A section.

There were very few photos of Slovenian motorways before I photographed them all in 2007.

I used to play it in 2007-2008. Hungary had occupied Czech Republic and Slovakia, then Romania had occupied Hungary After that, programmers invented resistance war and Romania promised us to do a planned resistance fight in order to recreate Slovakia. I remember negotiations with Romanian president the_mihai.

Then it started to bore me too much, because group of Slovak nationalists took control and everything has to be according to them. Also, it took too much time to fight, govern and write some articles in newspapers. Since I was working on my PhD, I had to spend time wiser, eg. writing scientific papers in real life So I gave it up.

It has improved a lot since then (well, I just know since 2009 or a little bit earlier, when I first started following Romanian highways news and then created an account), but we would still need to extend eastwards. For some ex-USSR countries, for example, information and pictures are still scarce, and maybe we should need some colaborators from there (there already are some, but we need more involvement).

I wonder about the future of motorways photography, there are less and less new motorways built, google streetview is covering almost everything, and on this forum a major part of motorways was already photodocumented (at least in Europe).

Speaking about eRepublik: is here any forum member that is still an active player?
