ok, a new idea

the amount of threads in the "dubai tower development" forum has grown pretty much, we are close to 200 already :eek:
it can be very time-consuming to find particular threads in there and everything is mixed up

i would propose new tower subforums:
- jumeirah lake towers
- dubai marina
- dubai media city
- dubai international financial centre difc

i will then move every tower thread in the corresponding forum.
the current forum "dubai tower development" will remain for towers in other projects and areas!


later on we can still create
- business bay
- jebel ali airport city
- the 3 palms
- dubailand
....

what do you think? which project subforums would you propose?

i think media city, jlt & marina are a must, as they represent the majority of towers (still)!

-Old Downtown: Bur Dubai and Deira
-Downtown Dubai: SZR, DIFC and Burj Dubai
-Dubai Marina
-JLT
-Free Zone Developments, TECOM e.tc.

or alternitivly [an idea i dont like so much]

-Emmar
-Nakheel
-Dubai Holding
-Independant

dont limit it to media city, include all the freezones, internet city, media manufacturing zone.... JAFZ....
its better to keep them all together.

and i still think there should be one for the rest of the main city outside of szr...:rant:
this could include, all developments on the creek, the airport, park square...

agree with most of it
but park square is almost SZR area ?
Media City, Telcom as one ?

LOL I remeber when we first started almost went down this road LOL. But it had to happen sooner or later with every thing that is going on

i agree, i dont like the pakistan forums, but the uk forums has more subsections and still looks quite good. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=29

how about we have a top section for dubai areas....

then a second set of subforums with uae P&D, photo section, and sky majlis,

and the general forum below.

btw, i agree the uae section needs to be on its own, away from ME&A weve got so many more projects.... i brought this up on the oatmeal thread

It is possible to have a subforum for SZR, JLT, Al Marsa and DIFC in the Dubai Towers Developments subforum.

It would look neat rather than have dozen subforums.

Just to explain

Middle East & Afrian > United Arab Emirates > Dubai Tower Development > Sheikh Zayed Road >

Middle East & Afrian > United Arab Emirates > Dubai Tower Development > Dubai Marina >

Middle East & Afrian > United Arab Emirates > Dubai Tower Development > Burj Dubai Development >

Middle East & Afrian > United Arab Emirates > Dubai Tower Development > Jumeriah Lake Terrace >

i know what you mean and i consider this as a reasonble idea!
it is a good method to avoid too many sub-forum links on the main page!

this means, the main page remains like it is right now! once you open the "dubai tower development" forum you'll get a list of sub-forums for the mentioned clusters.

i hope it is possible to have subforums in subforums, i will search other forums for exapmles and post a link here

i think we could use a more sub forums, UAE section is very active, many people are posting stuff, and it shouldn't be like the pakistani forum.

Obviously great minds think alike here, I was going to say make sure it doesn't end up looking like the Pakistan forums, where everything feels so unneccesarily spread out and the layout just makes you not want to post there.

what about the developments which arent high rise?

for example..

where would the dubai mall go?
would it be in the tower section under burj dubai, or in the projects section?


how about we split the tower section into 3, and remove the projects section.

Mainpage subforums
subforums in subforums

--------------------------------------------------------------

SZR Development
- DIFC, Burj Dubai

New-Dubai Development
-Dubai Marina, JLT, Media Freezones, Dubailand

Dubai Metro Development
-BurDubai, Deira, Int City

Dubai Offshore Development
-Palm Jumeriah, Palm Jebal Ali [wil later include waterfront and palm deira]

all of these will have their own general sections, much like the mainpage does now. e.g. SZR doesnt need a SZR sub-subforum as it would be in the subforum.
e.g. another villas project in the hills would be in the subforum for new dubai, not in a sub-sub form.

then we have one of those nice blue bars, under that:

UAE Projects and Development

Photo Section

i would say merging smussuw and dubai-loverand dubais proposals is the best!
so it would look like that:




Middle East & Africa > United Arab Emirates > Dubai > Dubai Metro Development
New Projects and Towers in Deira, Bur Dubai, The Palms, Dubai International City and other

Middle East & Africa > United Arab Emirates > Dubai > Dubai Marina
200 high-rise buildings in a masterplanned community by Emaar

Middle East & Africa > United Arab Emirates > Dubai > Jumeirah Lake Towers
79 Towers in a masterplanned community by Nakheel

Middle East & Africa > United Arab Emirates > Dubai >Burj Dubai Complex, Sheikh Zayed Road & DIFC
developments along Dubai's highway

Middle East & Africa > United Arab Emirates > Dubai > Dubai Media Cities
developments in Dubai Media City, Dubai Internet City, International Media & Production Zone & more

Middle East & Africa > United Arab Emirates > Dubai > >DubaiLand
developments in the world's largest leisure park

Middle East & Africa > United Arab Emirates >UAE Projects & Towers
Development in other Emirates

Middle East & Africa > United Arab Emirates >Photo Section
Images of skyscrapers, skylines, cityscapes, landscapes and life styles

Middle East & Africa > United Arab Emirates >Sky Majlis


So the projects could be in the "dubai" forum, each in the subforum where it has to be.
We leave out the "tower / projects" in the forum name , so it is just "dubai development" and then subforums including both!

i think this is perfect! :)
