Hello, I am new to this forum, so I obviously need some help. I am a student at the MIT (but I live in Cockeysville) currently studying engineering. So, can someone please give me an introduction to this forum and what it's about (skyscrapers, etc.)? Thanks.

Welcome to SSC (Skyscraper City!) I'm probably not the best "greeter", but I'll pitch in some of my thoughts. From my experience, this site is primarily about any urban, metropolitan, and regional issues you can think of: skyscrapers included, various city developments (residential, commercial, industrial), crime, urban decay, poverty, culture, entertainment (if you're looking for ideas on things to do, people will be more than willing to help), and much more. Several people are generous enough to take pictures of various cities, towns, etc. to show everyone. I'd say seeing photos is a big reason I come here, because if I'm not immediately able to go somewhere, it's fun to see people's photography skills while learning more about the world we live in. People here are from all corners of the world. It almost seems as if no town goes unnoticed, even if maps don't mention them. Seriously, I've often seen the smallest of towns mentioned time and time again.

^^Well said. And be wary of the trolls--they seem to be particularly active in the USUI forums. You can tell who they are because they always seem to have something negative to say.

Oh ok, but by saying this
I am a student at the MIT (but I live in Cockeysville)
gives the impression you live some 300-400 miles away from the school you go to lol

Yeah one of our guys here does that, PeterSmith. He goes to England, Miami and in Baltimore, too. I hope I'm accurate on that, Peter. :D
