"S" is a consonant, true, but you pronounce "SSC" as [es-es-si], and "e" is a vowel. Try to say "a es-es-si".

True, like in "an hour".

You've got a point here, I was thinking of the full name, so "a Skyscrapercity"

BTW, are you an English teacher or what?

There are more Slovenes in Croatia in summer than in Slovenia. You've been warned.

Have you all noticed that we've overtaken the 'Subways & Urban transport' subforum by number of posts? H&A forum is now the biggest subforum in the Infrastructure section.

Speaking about growth:

What about adding a new subforum in the near future? Looking at the current rate of growth it seems like a good solution to keep the forum readable and accesible in the near future. I think that there are already enough active members and subjects to sustain a new subforum.
My proposal is to add a new subforum around the 100,000 posts mark, a number we'll likely reach within a year from now.

A few possible subjects for such a subforum:
-Countries
-Plans, Projects and Construction
-Motorway discussions, photo's and experiences

I think it's a good idea to start a discussion about this proposal and i'm curious about your thoughts.

I think that it's quite difficult to split this section, since the threads aren't as different from each other than in e.g. the Stadiums and Sports Arenas section. In that section there are three different subforums: "proposed", "under construction" and "completed". The general discussions take place in the Stadiums and Sports Arenas section itself.

I don't think it's necessary yet, because this forum is quite organized per thread, unlike most other subforums. The number posts per thread ratio is rather high here.

I'm also a bit afraid that with multiple subforums, some topics will really drown because they won't be read as much anymore.

No, the official dealer is too expensive for regular maintenance, I only go to the dealer if I need to replace/repair something brand-specific.

I went to Kwik-fit this time.
