I'm pretty sure the simple act of trespassing alone doesn't give you the right to shoot someone anywhere in the US. You'd have to at least catch him committing a felony. Some states even have a "duty to retreat" clause.

Just a thought: I know all discussions about a country are to be kept in a single thread, and I think that's a good idea....

But in the case of trip reports with several posts and many pictures (e.g. Chris' trips through Europe or Nexis' NJ highways) wouldn't they be easier to find if they're in a thread of their own instead of say page 23 of an 80 page thread?
Of course, that would only make sense if you have a large number of photos on a single topic, the rest would still go into the country thread.

What do you guys think? Am I missing something?

A separate photo section in a photo section like this would be pretty pointless IMO.

The best method so far I've come up with is putting the link of the next post into the previous one(and in reverse) if it spans multiple threads. This could also save on page loading time,as you dont have to load all the pics of a Spain-China trip in one move,and also spare time for those who are not interested in the mongolian roads in that trip.

Of course this only works if one can follow the construction of several posts at the same time in multiple tabs/windows. I personally use notepad to construct huge posts,and then only copy the text here when I'm finished.

Sorry, it was a 'mental shortcut', I meant if someone goes onto your propety armed or tries to rob you

That's not at all what I meant. I give you an example: someone has made a series of interesting posts with pictures over some time, all on a single subject, and they're all burried somewhere within this giant country thread. (e.g. USA interstate highways)

What I'm saying is that if those posts were in a separate thread with an appropriate title (e.g. NJ expressways) they would be a lot easier to find. And searching for a thread by title is a lot easier than finding individual posts.

Check the first post of the hungarian thread...I guess thats the concept what you're looking for. The original one in our section even groups them according to posters,but someone edited them out from here.

That's also not what I meant. In fact, take the M0 section in the Hungarian thread I found in your signature. There are like 50 different links to individual posts. If you make a thread called "(Hungary) M0 construction updates" or something like that and put a link into the country thread, now that's a different story. Then you can get all posts pertaining to M0 construction in a single thread.

I'm strongly against this, as it would lead to a gazillion threads. Photos certainly aren't left unnoticed, but if they aren't interesting to someone (or even anyone), you won't get replies even in a separate thread.

That's right. A good first post where you can find links to all pics (like the Slovene thread) is better IMO.

@Verso: it took a while, but I've posted the third series of pictures, about Koper. Hope you like it

And now you have gazillions of posts in a single thread nobody is ever going to read again, regardless of whether they're interesting or not. But with separate threads it's easier to find them and you can still link to them from the country threads. The ones that aren't interesting will quickly disappear into the bowels of the forum.

The only downside I can see, which I didn't think of before, is that there will inevitably be new threads with posts that don't deserve their own thread and should've gone into the country-wide thread. Moving posts, creating or deleting threads, etc. could mean a lot more work for moderators.

OK, I agree, in the Slovene thread that seems to work well, but that's not the kind of situation I had in mind.

Now go look at that thread: (e.g. M7 or M0)

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=389944

Nobody is going to click on all those links. If you had a separate thread, you'd have to click once and get all those posts.

In that case we would need another mod. Verso?

If you're going to Beijing by car, be sure to open a separate thread; otherwise it will be way too many threads.

I click on those links often, and I'm grateful they're in the first post like that. But how would it be any different in a separate thread? You'd still have plenty of posts about M7 or M0.

After a deep thought I'm all for snowman's suggestion.

Some nice suggestions.

1) I think the amount of threads should be limited. If you're gonna open a thread for every photoset, it's gonna be a mess with dozens if not hundreds of threads after page 3. I'd rather have less threads which are more active. (example: Infrastruktura drogowa forum on FPW)

2) We do need some better fipo's for high profile threads. Problem, some threads, like those of China, Thailand, Malaysia etc. are picture-only threads. You can't make a good fipo for those. First posts need to contain a network map, links to significant photo series and construction plans.

I like how the Europeans attack each other threads but surprising leave American Threads alone

Anyway can some one tell me , why we have G20 summits , they always seem to cause Riots and mass Protests of Garbage , they also shut down cities and doesn't bring more money to the city with all the security measures , i was a bit shocked by the Pittsburgh PD crack down on Demonstration. It seems to me that it was overkill, just like in London. any one share the same opinion as me?

That's because they're either illegal demonstrations, or they're burning down cars and shops. Police won't beat up demonstrators of an authorized demonstration where's no violence and vandalism.

I would like to see the police kick some ass too if they're walking all over my property.
