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
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.

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. 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: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.

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.
