I am definitely not an expert on this subject but Freddy, you win I can't even tell if you are on the level or not man. What do you mean the grass looks good? What am I missing?Kooshan, ounai ke hey migoftan chamanesh bade? Hala didin faghat bikhodi ghor mizanin? Cheshmharo bayad shost, tore digar bayad did. Biain biroon az in halo hava. Biain ye bahsai bokonim ke ye output hadeaghal dashte bashe. Har thread ke miri por shode az in ghoravo harfaye negative.
Dameshun garm ba in chaman. Kheily khube!
Love the comment Freddy. I find the idea of moaning for the sake of it so sad. But the site is definitely getting better here too, remember a year ago? You have got it spot on. Think before you speak and try and keep perspective. Don't expect miracles if the groundwork is not there and keep to what would be best for those who see and use what you are talking about too. Dont forget the financial viability in the big picture, that is key. I struggle to keep perspective with things happening in Iran sometimes because the local needs and availability is changing so rapidly too.I didn't undetstand what do you exactly mean, level? What level? I didn't say that the grass looks good. I just said its "good"! Look at the bamik's comments on top of the last-posted picture (i.e. "چمن خوب یادگار تبریز"). The word "good" that I used referred to bamik's comment.
Some members who are actively participating in Iranian pages and threads , are interested to complain on every single post about projects' progresses. As long as complains/critics are science-based and constructive, its fine! However, it seems to be different when it comes to those complains that we see on Iranian pages and threads . I have some family ties with Russia, therefore I sometimes check Russian threads as well. Honestly, Russian natives who want to build up a proper discussion in the forum, always discuss with uploaded photos as the proof or pattern with detailed discussions at the end. Otherwise, they just post when they want to update a project progress or to introduce a new project. Anyway, long story short; stop talking bla bla bla! Everybody can talk. Try to make changes, starting by yourself. Act! Start to think about good ideas on how to make Iranian cities better. I can see that here we have many interested people in the subject. Why don't we start to develop scientific discussions in order to generate ideas to tackle the urban issues that we today encounter in our cities.
Ideas such as extensive pedestrianisation in Tehran together with mass parking construction to eliminate the roadside parks in order to build wider pedestrians (perhaps even an extensive network of pedestrians across tehran) and consequently to encourage people to walk or ride a bike more and to decrease the air pollution. This idea brings peace one more time between Tehran's citizens and it's streets........ . Lets talk about it! Lets gather relevant information about some experiences and ideas related to pedestrianisation and parking construction that are generated for developed cities in the world. Then lets develop the contents and discuss various aspects of the subject with respect to Iranian cities such as Tehran.
Looking forward for your reflections on the idea and the comment in general. Thanks!
Not sure why you even spend time discussing something with someone who asks for pictures as proof but cannot observe from these pictures that the stadiums are garbage.Love the comment Freddy.

On the level means not joking or being ironic. I love a sense of humour esp when its satirical and ironic. I try and fail often myself. I was on a roll with a post on Mashhad about banning concerts a while back. I even got a message about where it was from!! It made me quite proud of myself for a second or two. I wasn't sure if you were being over impressed to make a point. I posted a couple of clips by Jimmy Dore in the general discussion thread. He is brilliant. Have a look if you can, would love to find out what you think on him and his way of getting to political facts through satire. That sort of informed commentary appeals to me in buckets. Eh I try, not my fault no one gets it sometimes. lol
But the grass is not looking that great lets be honest! As you say, at least it's not lumpy and patchy all over. There seems to be a jinx on stadiums in Iran right now. They were all badly planned and located in the first place and now, limping to the finish line looking bruised and dirty, sort of kills off the will to cheer them on. The grass in Sahand Stadium is really not a surprise at all. I am impressed by how they managed the present quite uniform growth anyway because the gound is saturated with salt particularly in that very spot!! It's like trying to grow a perfect lawn on the beach. Salt also rises as the ground gets watered so the conditions will not improve in time. Used to be underwater barely 5 to 10 k years ago. Like a second in geological time. So most likely there is a fair bit of actual salt deposit under there!
The only way to deal with it is to insulate the topsoil completely. That has not been done here properly, I can bet my crown jewels on that one.
But 100% agree there should be much more science and fact based discussions. I think we have had one or two and I had a great one with Herbiside on the very subject you mention. Pedestrianisation of Tehran's streets. He is a really well informed and a keen environmental protection supporter so it's always worth looking at his comments too. Persian_Gulf I also find incredibly astute and well informed so he gets my attention when he comments too I have to say. Sorouch has a great eye for detail and setting too. And all the local members in other cities I find very measured and informed. But our society is so defused with many living outside the country for years (decades in my case but don't tell anyone, I always say I am 22) that it's tough to hold everyone's attention because some would not have the background knowledge to make a reasoned comment. I expect some would even be afraid of being wrong. Practice makes perfect I say! The number of members is not high enough to feel someone who knows the facts can point out the why and ifs. Throw in the political realities we are under, you never know if there is a hidden agenda sometimes with new members for example, and you would expect commentary you find on TabrizModern on a bad day really. Fair is fair, there are some really keen and informed members considering!!
I would be so happy if, before I die, I didn't have to add considering after every sentence about Iran. That would make me a happy ghost. Lol
I almost forgot SoldierT. He is far more on the ball than he makes out. His nose for politics and finance I would say is aristocratically sensitive and well proportioned. Really really good. He would do well on derivatives in a bank.
Very condescending and unfair comment.Not sure why you even spend time discussing something with someone who asks for pictures as proof but cannot observe from these pictures that the stadiums are garbage.
Unfortunately, many people in Iran have not seen how the real world is and have only seen Iran and believe IR propoganda so they think what we have is great.
The smart ones get scholarships and leave Iran and only then do they realise how poorly things are run. Clearly our friend here is not going to be one of them.
I think you misunderstood his comment IranAir, he wasn't saying he needed pictures to show how bad things are. He meant in general he likes to have sources listed in discussions. To me, that is actually a really sensible thing to say. That was what I understood, I think I wasn't far off either.I am sorry. I just got annoyed by his commet. I take that back.
