Heya!

Firstly I hope im posting this in the right section! If not Sorry in advance!..

Im in the earlier stages of building a website dedicated to providing up to date information of architecture in London, and London alone. The website will feature news and debates on current arguments on the skyline for example, the site will also house poll's and comments for people to leave feedback.

I would like to include articles and informative pieces from a number of perspectives, These too include both buildings that are currently being built, as well as future projects, and the classics which have constructed this beautifull city.

There will be smaller sections reviewing hotels, restraunts , clubs , pubs, offices and life in London..

The website is currently under design and has changed a number of time's! and Im just about to purchase the domain, I was just wondering if anyone would be interested in perhaps writing an article, or a frequent 'blog' style piece, or provide photos etc!

This is in no way trying to detract people from this website! but just a personal and educational project that may provide more information to people, as well as showing a positive view on skyscrapers and quality architecture in London!,

Many thanks in advance :)

Adam!.

Best of luck! It might be an idea to link your domain to existing sites such as Skyscrapernews.com etc and concentrate on finding the other parts of your site......but what do I know :)

I'm dead impressed that you were able to get hold of that domain name .. though at present it seems to go to a domain holding page. I look forward to the final article.

Our cats frequently walk over our keyboards ... and always seems to find those elusive key combinations that do funny things to the computer - remap keys, change screen resolution etc - usually requiring a reboot!

Good luck with the website. Without wanting to sound arrogant (or like a total dick), you might want to brush up on your spelling and grammar. In an informal forum such as this one you could argue that such things aren't so important (though I still disagree), so I don't really complain about bad English here.

When creating editorial content though, it's important that you use correct English. If it's well written then it's easier to understand, and people will take you seriously. If it's full of sloppy English and silly mistakes, your credibility disappears. Of course, that doesn't mean that you have to write in a formal style; just that you should try to adhere to the basic rules that make our language work so well.

I probably sound like a total dick... ah well. :)

Firefox 2.0 comes with a built in spell checker... although you will need to download the British English dictionary for it. Google toolbar also has a spell check function built in - not sure if it's available in IE though.

How the bloody hell did you get hold of the domain name ldn.com? It must be worth a fortune.

I still kick myself every day, knowing that way back in '92 I could have registered hundreds of lucrative domains and sold them all and never have to work a day in my life again!

I don't think he owns the address yet.
It's registered to someone in the Cayman Islands.

Good luck in buying that for under 50k :p
