As in Atlanta's downtown skyline. Sorry I wasn't clear enough for you.

You weren't unclear; you were just plain wrong.

And the topic of the poll is CITY skylines, not DOWNTOWN skylines. Therefore, Midtown and Buckhead are certainly fair game.

I don't remember it being up to you to decide what I include in my choice. Therefore, if I only prefer to include the downtown skyline of Atlanta, that's what I'll do regardless of what you think is wrong or right.

It's not up to me, but I CAN read and the OP clearly said this was about CITY skylines, not simply downtown skylines. Don't come in someone else's thread trying to change the criteria. Create your own thread if you want to do that.

Last time I checked, Atlanta was a city. Including all skylines or just one doesn't make it any less. If the criteria is so important let the OP tell me, not you.

I know this, but arbitrarily excluding Midtown and Buckhead is as biased and egregious as you can get. But hey, you didn't even know they were in the actual city to begin with, sooooo...

Why does he have to come tell one person what he so clearly stated in the title? What makes you so special?

Midtown and Buckhead's skyline have always been referred to their own respective skylines, within Atlanta. Apparently you're not understanding my words the way I meant them. I'm sure when I said "Atlanta's skyline", I knew it was in Atlanta's city limits...

You're the only one who said I was trying to change the criteria. Unless the OP finds something wrong with my opinion of the question he asked, I don't see how that has anything to do with you.

Buckhead has pretty much been regarded as its own skyline, but downtown and Midtown are adjacent and pretty much flow into each other. More specifically, they constitute one skyline with two clusters. It's pretty hard to separate those two from practically any angle.

It doesn't have anything to do with me; I don't have reading comprehension issues. City =/= downtown. Fairly simple, right?
