    Not sure where to post this

    I really thought this was a serious city planning forum, but i see it's all just people screwing off at work. This is kind of sad. I might check back from time to time, but I don't hold any expectations. I guess I know where my tax dollars are going though

    This place isn't a digital version of a stuffy professional conference, but more like the pub where planners show up at happy hour, ties loosened, to commiserate and talk shop as well as BS with one another. Almost all of us are planning professionals with difficult jobs and this place gives us the chance to vent. It is what it is, it'll be here long after you lose interest in coming here, and if you don't like it and don't have anything to contribute, then don't let the door hit you. P.S. - your tax dollars pay none of my salary.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Well we are sorry that we didn't meet your expectations. It was nice while it lasted.

    Uhhh ... it is, if you didn't notice the 14 forums at the top of the Forum home page. There would be much less content in those forums if it wasn't for the off-topic forums, which exist on most successful professional message boards.

    FWIW, activity spikes during lunch hours. On this end, you can see the wave of posts as the lunch hour progresses through North America's time zones.

    See this button on the right side of the Cyburbia Community table header?
