This is excellent Kenspeckle!
Is there someting similar for
Glasgow
Newcastle
Aberdeen
Dundee
Inverness
Perth
Stirling

Thanks!
Glad you liked it! In terms of a devoted development overview, I think only Glasgow has an equivalent thread. Newcastle has a pretty active subforum but not a development summary as far as I know. With the exception of Dundee, which has a couple of threads, Aberdeen, Inverness, Perth & Stirling have single subject threads for all news & discussion, which at least makes them easy to skim through.
