Ok, you "versus" folks finally get your very own room.

This is not however, a free-for-all room with no rules. It will be monitored, and we expect the same type of overall conduct we expect in any other room. Personal attacks, trolling, and flaming will NOT be allowed.

Use this room for....

1) City vs. City or "place vs. place" discussions where the discussion is comparing one place to another, or comparing specific things/amenities/attractions cities have compared to others, etc. Threads that are specific to just one city or place are not appropriate for this forum. (In other words, no threads like "What does everyone think of my hometown?") Compare U.S. or North American cities to one another, but please, do not post "XX USA vs XX Middle East" types of threads - you simply cannot compare American cities to "world" cities accurately. Threads comparing non-North American cities to each other should be posted in their appropriate world forums. The City vs. City forum is strictly for comparing North American cities and areas to each other.

To post threads about cities from other parts of the world, please go to the appropriate forums:

Africa - //www.city-data.com/forum/africa/
Americas - //www.city-data.com/forum/americas/
Asia - //www.city-data.com/forum/asia/
Australia and New Zealand - //www.city-data.com/forum/australia-new-zealand/
Europe - //www.city-data.com/forum/europe/
United Kingdom - //www.city-data.com/forum/united-kingdom/
World - //www.city-data.com/forum/world/

2) Yes, even something like "NYC or Philly - who makes the best cheese steak??" is ok. (because you're comparing a city quality to a city quality, etc). These types of questions belong here and NOT the General U.S. room.

3) Topics/language are to be kept at a "PG-13" level (this includes youtube links and videos) otherwise they will be deleted. Do not post embeds of heavy metal, rap, hip-hop or any other music or other videos that contain language or lyrics that are not of a PG-13 or under nature, otherwise the post(s) will be removed and if too many do it, the thread will be closed.

4) Note the "Urban Planning Room" is for topics that discuss things such as urban planning, zoning, sprawl, density, public transit issues, and more. Read up on what belongs in there HERE.


DUPLICATION: Please scan over the room before creating a new topic FIRST, and make sure the topic has not already recently been discussed. Add to existing thread topics before creating one that is very similar or the same, please. Duplicate topics will be closed/deleted.

RELEVANCE: Posts such as, "socks vs. booties" or "soft toilet paper vs. rough" are going to be deleted. This is not a generic "anything vs anything" room. Make your topics about something relevant to make comparisons to (see above and below). Note this isn't the appropriate place for political, or religious fighting or for places like discussing which states have bigger boobs or stuff like that. C'mon, really. If you're going to do a city vs. city thread, don't just post a subject like "New York vs. Omaha" and in your initial post put "discuss - which do you like better?". Give REASONS. Such as, "Do you prefer the XX and XX of New York, or, the XX and XX of Omaha".... specific features/reasons for each place for people to choose from. We do not need "negative" topics here - no "which state has the ugliest people" or stuff like that - don't create insulting threads, please. Topics that are too vague and generic are subject to be deleted.

PHOTOS: You may post photos if you like, but please, due to copyright reasons, only post photos that YOU have taken yourself. Snagging others' photos online and using them is a no no. If you wish to show photos that others have taken, simply post a link to the photos, and ONLY post a link (do not attempt to hotlink the photos). Photos from city-data.com and from wikimedia are allowed, but please indicate that's where you found them. When you do post your own photos, you need to indicate that they are yours, and please limit your photo postings to no more than SIX photos per post, and make sure to resize them to a reasonable size (800 pixels or so), so that you don't clog up the thread and cause people with slower connections to have to go through scroll hell to get to the next post. If you have a large gallery of photos of a city that you've taken, that you wish to share with others, post a LINK to that gallery instead of posting excessive numbers of photos within your post. Posts with excessive numbers of photos and/or excessively sized pics are subject to be deleted.

"RELOCATION QUESTIONS": Those of you who have legitimate "I'm moving - what is the best city for me?" in general type of questions: If they are about a specific city or state, please post your question in that city or state's room. If you have a list of cities you're trying to decide on, post it in here but be clear in the title/subject line of your topic that it's a relocation question so folks don't get it mixed up with one of the "battle of" types of posts that goes on in here. You can also post legitimate questions about which place might be right for you in the General U.S. room.

If you have issues with a poster or topic, use the triangular "report" icon to report the post to moderators. Do NOT engage in fighting with others if they say something you don't like. Personal attacks will not be tolerated, nor will multi-person bickering.

You may now disengage your seat belts and enjoy your flight. Thank you.
