Just because conversations reduce to lesbianism doesn't mean they're degenerate. It's a natural pattern.I find the pics interesting, but most of the discussions are pretty juvenile. Anything serious quickly degenerates. I'm so glad that never happens here
Yeah, urbanphoto seems like it'd be exactly what I'm looking for in terms of urban discussion, except that it's way too slow. Too bad. Can there really be that few urbanists on the internet?BKM said:urbanphoto's discussion board is relatively slow as to number of posts, but its very "intellectual." Tends to the liberal/radical side (one fundamentalist catholic was hooted off pretty quickly when he complained about a gay bar in his neighborhood)-so be warned.
I've been there a few times....mostly looking for Gallery abusers....those that use up a lot of space here in the gallery and hotlink their images to SSC. That issue has been taken care of for the most park....and I took no enjoyment in deleting over 1000 pictures a couple of weeks ago.biscuit said:I did notice a few post by our Great Leader and a couple of other Cyburbanites over there. Dan, are you cheating on us or was it only a short meaningless fling?
Why not just ban referrals from SSC?NHPlanner said:I've been there a few times....mostly looking for Gallery abusers....those that use up a lot of space here in the gallery and hotlink their images to SSC.

They must have been thinking of city-states.biscuit said:Case in point. One thread I looked at was trying to compile a list of the 10 CITIES with the largest Gross National Products in the world - Think about that one for a minute. Anyway, the entire thread is nothing but flaming and not one of the posters even seemed to know what GNP actually is to begin with.
So I guess we're a bunch of slackers at work (sorry work)Dan said:The differences between the sites, IMHO?

Yours truly. The serious planning/urbanism site, with an edge. Forum posters tend to be older than those on the skyscraper sites, and the majority are professional planners and planning students. Architecture isn't really a topic, except in the context of related issues like historic preservation and design regulations.
