Actually, most stuff from page 4 - 13 are mostly things that originally should've been posted into a country thread. But I don't do that now, otherwise existing threads would get messed up and posts won't be in good order anymore.

I think we have about 4 - 5 pages of real stuff of different topics. I noticed a few old duplicate threads back in page 9 - 13 so I closed those. Most of that stuff was already there before I was assigned mod in 2007.

I like to have this subforum organized as in putting the stuff about the same subject in one thread as much as possible. That's why we have a much higher post per thread ratio than other Infrastructure & Mobility subforums

Yes, this is one of the best organised subforums.

I remember the antics that occured just before Chris became the moderator - Chris wanted a mod for the subforum, and people suggested Chris and Verso. But someone started bagging them for no reason. Then some guy with no interest in highways announced that he was the new mod, but a higher-ranked mod said that that guy wasn't the new mod.

I think that's how it went anyway. I can't believe I actually remembered that...

I know, it was Fusionist, a moderator from Sri Lanka who was just playing jokes with us. Everybody got upset because an "unknown" mod was assigned for highways and autobahns

When Chris became a mod it must have felt like Obama in the White House: finally someone who knows something about it gets to lead, but he first has to clean up the mess made by his predecessor

Robert Plant - Big Log



My love is in league with the freeway
Its passion will ride, as the cities fly by
And the tail-lights dissolve, in the coming of night
And the questions in thousands take flight
My love is a-miles in the waiting
The eyes that just stare, and the glance at the clock
And the secret that burns, and the pain that grows dark
And it's you once again
Leading me on - leading me down the road
Driving beyond - driving me down the road

My love is exceedingly vivid
Red-eyed and fevered with the hum of the miles
Distance and longing, my thoughts do provide
Should I rest for a while at the side
Your love is cradled in knowing
Eyes in the mirror, still expecting they'll come
Sensing too well when the journey is done
There is no turning back - no
There is no turning back - on the run

My love is in league with the freeway
Oh the freeway, and the coming of night-time
My love is in league with the freeway

I didn't think Chris had a predecessor, at least not one that was active...

Verso, you'll just have to guess. Maybe I'm Alex Von Konigsberg... or Radi... or Fusionist?
Of course not. In all seriousness, I'd been reading this section for a long time, but never bothered to create an account.
