As a Malaysian, you and I know this is a bit false.

I wonder how much you know old villages across Peninsula Malaysia and Sabah and Sarawak.

Ghost villages aren't happening just here, It happens even in the most populated country like India too. US also has plenty of them, people moves to town for better living.

You missed my point. 'Towns' and 'villages' are different entities. Villages are occupied and abandoned all the time for various reasons (this happens around the world). But in Malaysia, as far as I know, there is no such thing as 'ghost towns'. But 'sleepy towns' does exists, in Pahang, Perak, Johor (Felda/ex-mining towns), Terengganu, Borneo (petroleum refinery towns), but not as dead as ghost towns.

Is an empty shell of a crown acceptable but not a toothpick spire? If both were integral part of the structure, tangibly contributing to the overall height?
Quote:
Anttenas no, toothpicks yes? Sears tower is officially shorter than Pretronas somehow, now it's happening again. Just sneaking their way past the roofline of bigger more massive towers with a thin spike.
Here's what CTBUH has to say:
Quote:
A “building” is considered to be a structure that is designed for residential, business or manufacturing purposes. An essential characteristic of a building is that it has floors. Height is measured from the sidewalk of the main entrance to the structural top of the building including penthouse and tower. Television towers, radio antennas and flagpoles are not included. On the other hand, a tower is included if it is enclosed as an integral part of the structure—the Chrysler Building, for example. The number of stories begins at street level, main entrance.
https://www.ctbuh.org/about/history

Quote:
But no antennas!

Because they aren't architecturally related? Like the architect was asleep when they were added? Try to imagine the Sears Tower without its antennas. Looks totally wrong, right? That's because it's part of the architecture.

https://www.skyscraper.org/TALLEST_T...cs/t_sears.jpg
That's how 1973 Sears Tower looked like before the first addition of antennas. Then in 1983:

https://media.archinform.net/m/00002815.jpg
Of course now we have the current antennas very much higher than the older ones. So antennas, signboards etc are obviously not permanent features, of which I doubt were deliberate part of the initial design especially when they can be dismantled arbitrarily.
Quote:
Let's just end this all and go by roof mkay?
Okay, what if the roof is a steep pyramid tapering sharply and God forbid, culminating with a spire? Does the measurement end at the base or the tip? Furthermore, some buildings nowadays you can't even define the roof like London's Shard.

Quote:
This tower is still a very impressive 530 or so (can't actually find info about the height to roof) That's more impressive to me because you know it's an honest real height. 530 metres! That's amazing!
Drop the condescension already. This is a tired issue that CTBUH tries to resolve objectively and obviously the committee is unable to please everyone. Ironically, the late Fazlur Rahman who was responsible for Sears was part of the early committee who defined the criteria for height measurements, and CTBUH to boot, was founded in Chicago, where it's still based.
If you are still dissatisfied, maybe you could tell it to Melbourne based Karl Fender who designed this building and is a current member of CTBUH's height council.
https://www.ctbuh.org/groups/12

Enough disgruntlement over the matter already, with the same tiresome arguments everytime a spire makes some buildings reach superlative heights.
