Humbersides a great name, does exactly what it says on the tin. As a descriptive term, it hasn't been beaten. Such a shame about the way it was brought in, rather like the "kingston upon" prefix.

Are you seriously comparing 'Humberside' to being named 'Kings town upon' by King Edward I?

Are you insane?

Hull & Humber, it's the govenmental (local, national, Europe) preferred option, and how the region is being marketed (hence the clipper race yacht Hull & Humber). Humberside (whilst I still have a soft spot for, is oldhat, bit like calling York Jorvik!)

perhaps it's time for us to start some threads on south bank developments? And a north lincs photo thread?

No thanks! we'll be over-thrown as they can type quicker, what with their extra fingers!

Can I just get your views on one further aspect . . .

On the SSC Forums Listing pages (under "UK & Ireland Architecture Forums > "Projects & Construction") all forums are displayed with a sub-title underneath, to explain/define the precise areas covered.

If you look at those pages (from the links at the top of this page) you will see our forum listed.


It is currently . . .

Humberside
For Hull and surrounding areas.


I have shown below a 'possible' option, but how do you think (in addition, of course, to the main name-change) it should best be shown?

Hull and Humber
For Hull, Humber & East Riding areas.


Please give me as many ideas as possible, and it would be good if we can come to some sort of concensus, before I submit it?

'For Hull and the Humber region' sounds good.

That 'reads well', but my only concern with it, is that it is actually only sort of "repeats" the Forum Title.

It doesn't add any additional clarification or explanation, for external and other posters. which is what the sub-heading is there for, primarily.

I think Humberside should be avoided as it is a touch archaic and, generally, nobody in the area uses the term anymore. It pops up periodically in the national media and just smacks of ignorance.

Hull and East Riding is a little better in terms of usability but again disregards North Lincolnshire.

To that end, I'm all for Hull and Humber.

As far as sub-heading goes, I think 'Hull, East Riding and North Lincolnshire', covers it .

I would go along the lines of...

https://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=29

North East England
Tyneside, Wearside, Teesside and Humberside

Change to

North East England
Tyneside, Wearside, Teesside, Hull & Humber




https://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=2254

Humberside
For Hull and surrounding areas

Change to

Hull & Humber
Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire & North Lincolnshire

The Newcastle, Sunderland and Teesside forum names are all as they should be, names like Wearside and Tyneside were considered to "not easily or clearly" represent the Cities involved, so were dismissed early on.

It is (now) ONLY the 'Humberside' name (and sub-heading) that is under discussion here, to possibly be changed.

I quite like the above 'sub-heading' (for the proposed Hull & Humber forum) though, but let's see what else we get!

I never asked to change the other titles, I just found another Humberside that I think you may have missed.

If you click on UK & Ireland Architecture Forums under the banner it takes you too.
https://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=29

Which has the word Humberside on under the North East England Heading. I just asked for the Humberside to be changed to Hull & Humber.

Yes (as you have shown) there are a few areas of SSC indexing that might need a little re-visit, if we want them (and we do) to be totally accurate.

I'll initially be happy though, if we can get the main forum title and sub heading for THIS forum changed to what people want!

OK then, thanks for the responses.

I'll go for "'For Hull, East Riding and North Lincolnshire" then.

That makes the situation, as follows . . .


CURRENT:

Humberside
For Hull and surrounding areas.


CONCENSUS PROPOSAL:

Hull and Humber
For Hull, East Riding and North Lincolnshire.


I need to get "SSC Head Office" agreement for a forum name change, please be assured that I will try my very best to achieve it!

I will leave this note on the forum though, for a day or two, before putting up the case to SSC . . . JUST in case anyone strongly feels that they would prefer something different (?)


CHEERS!

An important reminder about the posting of images
into threads on Skyscraper City . . .


This note is posted here in order to EMPHASISE the post by Jan, that is currently in the "announcements" section above our forum.

Announcements are not there permanently, and I feel this important message should be retained permanently somewhere on our forum, and this thread is the logical place for it.

The announcement, dated May 12th 2010 from Jan (Administrator) is . . .

If anyone has any questions about Jans post, or requires anything clarified, please ask me (Newcastle Historian) either on this thread or by PM.
