Having a handful of active members certainly hasn't stopped the London Local from chugging along. A Toronto subforum would be tons more active than our corner of this site with Caltrane posting by himself.

Lack of members seems like silly reasoning to me.

I would make double my post to make a Toronto subforum pop!

Store it at the top of my iPhone favorites along with Top Ten Constructors, Top 30 Constructors, Top Highrise Constructors, Worldwide International- Skyscraper and Highrise Constructors, and yes World Highrise and Supertall Constructor Proposals.

Totally agree. Approximately a third of the threads populating the main Canada forum are Toronto-centric/themed. Most of the time, it does not bother me, but it seems very strange that given this volume and topical specificity that a local does not exist.

Aside from the WE-Parkway there is not much construction going on in Windsor at this time, so I'm living vicariously through all of you guys!

In all honesty this forum is a bit unorganized.

Not trying to be rude, but are Toronto forumers so full of themselves/city, that even a thread that strictly says in the title "Outside of the GTA", they can manage to practically turn this thread into "all about Toronto"? For once I dont want to hear about Toronto. JUST for once, please. Its like as soon as someone mentions Vancouver, someone has to say Toronto even louder.

Exactly. That is the reason I made this thread and the proposals thread. Yet they even somehow made more than half of both threads so far about how terrible I am for excluding Toronto.


Sorry, we like knowing what is going on elsewhere in Canada. We all know Toronto builds tall buildings and love the threads that display them, but the rest of us would like to display our projects too.

Time to share kids

You disagree that it's time to share? and that other cities deserve to be displayed in this forum as well?

Well that's your opinion, you don't have to use this thread
