Here are the current Skyscraper Forum discussion threads.

Select a thread to read the postings and to perhaps answer.
To submit a new thread, go to the submission form, but first please do
check the respective buildings' entries you're inquiring about, the
subject headers below or make a site search to avoid asking
something that has already been explained on the site.
There are also the Terms and topics index for seaches of distinct subjects from
the site as well as architectural links that may be more helpful than you think...
Thank you.

Note: The answers in italics are given by me, but they too are
equipped with message ID numbers, and freely commentable.

There is a categorial division of subject threads to help finding possible
previous postings on the topic. This hopefully also prevents any
repetitive queries on a subject that has been handled before.

(The "Previous" and "Next" links on the pages itself
lead, as before, chronologically to preceding and
following question submissions, regardless of topic.)

(as well as to answer that way directly to the enquirer), please consider
that by replying to the forum the answers would be available to all the visitors
and readers -- and in the future also you may find some reply dealing with a topic
of interest to yourself from here, instead of only the enquirer's e-mail box,
where the answer can't profit all the visitors.
