Well done, everyone!

Honourable mention and the "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" special award goes to Julie, for "They put a nice façade on..." (bonus points also for spelling façade correctly and setting the ball rolling)

Third place and the "Special Award for Lateral Thinking in a Vertical Context" goes to Astria Starwynd, for "World's tallest bookshelf."

Second place and the "Mark Thatcher Special Award for Geographical Awareness" to the very practical Graham Middleton for "How to cope with the monsoons - don't have a large flat roof!"

First place and "The Minority Report Special Award for Marketing Skills" to Dave, for "Hotel de Anorexia..."

PM on its way.

Building in Charni Road, Mumbai. Photo Rakeshpate.

Thanks, Lynn. I find myself asking, "how did this ever get built?", "what is it used for?", "how do they market it?", ... and am looking forward to the enlightenment which will result from the limitless ingenuity of our captioneers.

Well that was funny! Sometimes we don't notice big problems when we are trying to sort out small ones. I had generated "new" figures for 18 September instead of 18 December! I will post correct figures for 18 December and then today's figures.

Move along, folks. Nothing2c here.

The automatic generation of n2c stats will settle down next time - this time I have added an estimate for change in rank. No picture, I'm afraid. Photobucket is having a hissy fit at present.

Sparky, anniet, Julie, Uli, you are welcome!

I've called it: Nothing2C Here :) I wrote the link to it down somewhere - but can't find where...

:)

Here it is: Nothing2C Here.

I suggest (but it is up to you of course, anniet) that you let it grow just by manual clicks for a while, as otherwise you don't see the initial growth of the settlement. For the rest of us, than means please wait for anniet to open the city to mass immigration before automating clicks for it. I'll take a snapshot of the city now and include it with the next stats.
